Look at all these STARS!

I don't know about you guys, but I have thoroughly enjoyed all the eye candy that our Guest Designers have given us!! If you haven't checked out their creations, make sure you look at the last few days here on the Verve blog and post some love for them!

When I sat down to make a project for you, I knew exactly what I wanted to do! These stars (and the way all 3 star sets work together) are perfect for a One Sheet Wonder! Now, I will say that I didn't get all the way through because let's face it...I just don't have that kind of attention span. But I have 3 cool and simple cards for you, all made with about a 1/2 sheet of cardstock.

First I randomly stamped stars of all sizes and patterns from Polka Stars and Seeing Stars on a piece of Georgia Pacific White cardstock in Brilliance Graphite Black Ink. After a blast with my heat gun, I colored them with Copics that match Cameo Coral, Apricot Appeal, So Saffron, Soft Sky, and Certainly Celery. Then I cut my cardstock into 2 pieces measuring 2 1/8" x 5 1/2", and then 3 rectangles measuring 1 1/2" x 2".

I then matted them onto Basic Black cardstock and added some details like piercing, ribbon, and doodling, and then sentiments from all three sets. I wanted them to be very simple, so I didn't add much "stuff"...I think it gives the stars center stage, don't you?

Here's a close up of the cards:

I hope you enjoyed my project, and I'd love to see what you're doing with your Verve Stamps! So feel free to post a link in the comments here for us all to take a peek at your creativity!

Have a fabulous day and stay tuned for more mojo from the Verve Team!


  1. Oh WOW Shannan! I like the way the bright stars just leap off the page, and contrast with the black and white. Such fun colors.
