Rain, Rain Come & Stay

Saturday, April 26, 2014

That's what I would sing if it ever rained here in Albuquerque. But alas it's just windy (like crazy Santa Ana winds, windy), so I will keep my fingers crossed for raindrops soon!

Remember back a few weekends ago when I shared three cards in one post? Well one of those (the purple one) won the challenge that I entered it in, and with the win, I actually won stamps from Verve! I haven't stamped before, so I took my time looking through all of the stamps they have on their website (so many - and not too expensive!). I decided on a sheet of stamps with a variety of designs and they came in the mail this week. Look how great the stamped sentiment fits with my umbrella card!

I combined two challenges (theme (clean and layered) and layout) and came up with this simple blue card.

I definitely need to work on my stamping technique, but I think I'm going to end up really liking adding stamped sentiments to my cards!

There were some amazing cards made for the challenges this week. Here are a few of my favorites:

  1. Your card is so pretty! I think you'll be hooked on stamping in no time at all. Try using an eraser on those new stamps before you ink them up. It will help the ink stick better. Have fun! Thanks for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches!
