I've told you before how much I love Julee Tilman's Verve Visual Plain Jane stamps, right? They are the handiest little stamps, invariably saying something that I could really use. Right after I got back from South Carolina, I received an envelope of Verve-a-liciousness--what a sweet surprise! So tonight I wanted to use one of the new Plain Janes, Psalm 51:10. I think that this card might just have to sit out on my desk as a good reminder.
I also wanted to show you some pretty new papers that I ran across at last CHA and loved, Graphic45. The ones that I've used here are from the Playtimes Past Collection, and they have a whimsical antique look that reminds me of my very first hardback Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes book--perhaps some of you may have had the same one, the one with the black and white checkerboard cover. I had used this paper line today for the first time when I was working on a card for Ellen's newsletter, and I loved how that card came out. Since it won't be posted on my blog, I thought I'd better use some of my scraps and make something that I could share here!
I used an SU die to cut the long bracket and chipboard base for it, and a Coluzzle circle template to get a large circle to fit in on corner. I cut it with the same die, trimming along those little perforated edges and stitching it down to the ivory/paisley layer. Ribbon is the 1" wide silk from StarLitStudio, and buttons are from my stash (red ones) and PTI (black ones). I stamped the sentiment in SU's Brilliant Blue ink and die cut it with Spellbinders Label die.
Thank you for visiting, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
