Can you believe it? I stamped something!

But first, I have to show you our family pets. Here's Juliette with our parakeets. Tom is the blue bird, and Roxie is the white bird. As you can see, they're quite tame. Their cage is in my craft room, so I get bird songs to keep me company while I make things.

I finally got the time to stamp a few cards. These were made for the Verve Stamps challenge. The challenge was to follow four sketches and use one sheet of double-sided 6x6 inch patterned paper to decorate four cards. The stamps I used are from the new Beautiful You set by Verve Stamps. They are such fun sayings that I wanted some fun paper to accent them. Basic Grey's Romani line seems like just the thing. The colors are a little crazy, but I like them! I was too lazy to drag out the right equipment to take a good photo at midnight, so I apologize for the quality of this picture. Maybe I'll take a better one tomorrow. Don't hold your breath, though. I get distracted easily!

Details: stamps - Beautiful You (Verve Stamps); paper - Romani (Basic Grey), Basic Black, Pink Pirouette, Bashful Blue, Ruby Red (Stampin' Up!); accessories - brads, dimensionals, scallop edge punch

I have recently started incorporating stamps into my scrapbooking. Some things have worked better than others but I really do like it.
