Here’s a card that can be used for a couple different occasions. With the church, it could be for a wedding, Christening, engagement, First Communion or Confirmation. I’m sure there are more that I haven’t listed here, but you get the gist.
This card uses a lot of scraps that I had around from the SEI Collection, Jolie Chocolat which was wildly popular for it’s pink and brown tones. The added glitter and foil accents in the patterns made the paper that much more appealing.

I love making cards!
It’s Virtual Stamp Night this weekend on Splitcoast Stampers, so I thought that I would indulge myself in some stamping just for the fun of it.
So, VSN has various challenges under this month’s theme of You Make My Heart Sing. The hostesses are extremely creative with their challenges all relating back to the main theme. Great job ladies!
Here is another card with many more to come:

I just love the sketches from the Verve Stamps Team! Every Monday is a great sketch then every Friday on SCS, there’s another one for Viva la Verve!
Let me share how I used the sketches. I was coloring some Michelle Perkett Studio images this past weekend at Stampfest while I demo’d Copic markers at the Marco’s Paper booth. I also HAD to add some markers to my collection in the RV category – I needed more pinks!
Join us this week at the Your Choice blog challenge on Michelle Perkett Studio Challenge Blog! You have until Monday afternoon!
Thanks for looking and thanks to Michelle for having me on her Design Team for the last 6 months. It’s been truly a FUN ride! I can’t wait for the next 6 months!!

And my final digital stamp creation (this week anyway) using The Stamping Boutique stamps.
I have lots of layers here! I printed the image on acetate, picked a glitter color and part of the image for that color. I “colored” that part of the image with Crystal Lacquer on the back of the printout and sprinkled with the first glitter color. I repeated this process until the image was colored in totally with glitter! It was set to the side to dry while the card base was put together. I followed the Week 1 Verve Sketch from SCS for the layout. When the image was dry, I attached it to a piece of glittered embossed cardstock by squeezing some Crystal Lacquer onto the back of the glittered image and sticking it to the sheet. Some trimming cleaned things up, add a little ribbon and a tag with die cut “love” word.
Hope you enjoy it!

Let’s take a look at some cards that I’ve made using Unity and Ippity stamps!
Did you know that I’m an Ippity Chick and sell Ippity stamps? They are the best cling mount, red rubber stamps out there! Clear images, lots of versatility and especially great value for the money.
Take a look! If you would like to see more Ippity, take a look at my Ippity selling blog for all the sets and great info on the stamps.
With another great image from Michelle Perkett Studio: Sleepy Time Fairy
It’s a simple stamp with lovely big surfaces to color and detail.
I used this week’s PDCC color combo of gray, green and orange to use with my fairy.
I just happened to have some paper to work with it too! Here’s my card (click on the picture for a bigger version):
