Stamp TV Sketch

This card is for Stamp Tv's Sketch Challenge along with the Less is More Challenge - use acetate.  The Hostess of this LIM challenge, Chrissie used white on the vellum against the black base.

I had to try that!  I LOVE the way the white stands out so clear against the card base, and I really enjoyed seeing yet another way to use vellum!  (Thanks Chrissie).  I used the GKD stamp set Hope Grows.  I really like the butterfly in this set - so elegant.
{{ On a side note - this challenge site has become so popular - last week, Chrissie and Mandie had over 300 (!) entires!!  There is no prize, but they do encourage the players to comment on each other's cards for support.  That, to me really is the "prize" -- having stampers come to visit your blog and comment on your cards--  really, just fabulous!  So, anyone from LIM popping over to comment THANK YOU!!  and to my regular followers THANK YOU too!  We ALL love comments.}}

Oh how ridiculous am I!  I went to upload this card over at Stamp TV and low and behold I found a card I had made for this sketch and forget I made it!  Sheez.  Oh what the heck, I will share it too!  Same set was used GKD Hope Grows. What a dweeb I am~~ :)




I also wanted to share ANOTHER set of cards I made for my sister.  [She really does make out like a bandit with my cards.]   She saw my blob flower card,

and asked for a set. Since I don't re-make cards, I kept the same "blob" flower, but changed the colors and size, and also made a holder for them.
I really do love my "blob" flowers, and I thought this was a fun set.  I used Inkadinkado Amy Smyth Made It Garden Variety stamps.  I really like this set - very versatile.  To make blob flowers, I flipped the flower stamp over and stamped with the backside of the stamp, and than used the actual stamp image on top of my blob.  Fun results! Edited - I forgot to link this to Moxie Fab - set of cards
Thanks for stopping by~

hi Vicki, your cards are great, but - I really want to thank you for the blob flower method (which I have not tried yet BTW). For ages I have been thinking I needed a way of getting a 'solid' image and then stamping the detail on top - now you have told me how! thanks so much, I will try it soon! xx

I really like the shape of your acetate card, and the butterflies are just so pretty. Super sentiment too.

And I think the "blob" flowers you made for your sister are just stunning!

The circular cards are lovely but I'm bowled over by the stunning set of thank you cards you made for your sister! Your blob flowers are a whole new way of two-step stamping!
