Up, Up and Away
This stamp set is so fun to work with...it's the Up, Up & Away stamp set from Verve. It's great because not only is it perfect for coloring with Copics, but I love to paper-piece with it:)
Verve's Ready Set Stamp Challenge that ends on Monday is to use this fabulous set, Up, Up & Away. The prize of the contest is a $30 gift certificate to the Verve store...how awesome is that!?
Here is the sketch and inspiration room I selected to play along at the Viva la Verve June Week 2 Challenge over at Splitcoaststampers. Go check it out...super fun...there are two more inspiration rooms to choose from!
The largest background panel was stitched with my sewing machine for a little added depth and interest. I paper pieced the clouds and the balloon for the focal panel, colored the basket in with a Copic and stamped the sentiment with Black Momento ink. After die cutting the circle and scallop circle, I layered everything up and finished it off with a yummy yellow bow and some buttons:)
Here's another card that I made earlier in May using this awesome stamp set, Up Up & Away...click here to go to that posting.
