Keep Shining


Hope you’re having a fun day! I just wanted to post another card that I made for Summer Card Camp 2, this time using some stamps and dies from Verve; here I am using their Shining Star stamp set along with their Scallop Trim Trio and Starry dies. I was so lucky to win a generous Verve prize in a recent Mojo Monday challenge, and I couldn’t wait for these goodies to arrive in the mail! I was inspired by the Day 4 challenge to make a card in 10 minutes, though I admit that I came in at 11:27. I really loved how Jennifer Rzasa positioned her sentiment to that the “y” was fitted around the arrow; using a similar concept, I placed my sentiment so that it hangs over the edge of the stacked diecuts. I also covered the stars in vellum to soften the look of them just a little bit. I am nearly caught up at this point – there are some fun color combos added for Day 5, so maybe I will do some more crafting tonight!

    Your card reminds me of a layer cake! It really does look delicious. Gorgeous colors, and love what you did with your sentiment. Can’t wait to see what you create next! : )

    Gorgeous card, Suzanne! And the photo is lovely too. I actually noticed your perfect sentiment placement even before I read what you wrote about fitting it in with the design :) Just lovely!

    Oy, you put me to shame, Suzanne, as I haven’t even started class yet! I brought a work project home so it may be several more days … your beautiful card makes me want to abandon the work project and go to class NOW! I love that overhanging sediment and the dreamy vellum stars!!

    Suzanne, this is so pretty. I love your layering of the background colors, really adds so much to your beautiful card. And all those layers of scallops and stars, so perfect.
