Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

I love the Plain Jane stamp line that Verve Stamps introduced last year. Julee wanted to give Verve customers a way to pick up additional stamps at a very affordable price, so she began offering single images for only $3 each. There's nothing "plain Jane" about the stamps - the name simply refers to the fact that the stamps are packaged without the printed index on the acetate carrier sheet, which helps keep the cost low.

The Plain Jane stamps coordinate well with Verve's image stamps, but one of my favorite things is to build a card around just the single stamp. I used a PJ called Little Star, Jen's Sketch For You To Try, and some papers from the Nana's Nursery Baby Boy Collection by Die Cuts With a View to create this baby girl card. I modified Jen's sketch a tiny bit by adding the circle panel for the sentiment, but the basic lines of the sketch are still there.

Little Star will be releasing tomorrow, along with four other Plain Janes and a whopping eight full sets. The Release Party starts at 8 pm EST!

Check out what the rest of the SFYTT team put together this week:

Jen del Muro ... who has the sketch and a WONDERFUL new guest designer to announce!!

A girl can never have too many sketches to work with, especially with so many awesome new Verve sets to play with, so when Julee announced a special weekend sketch challenge, I wanted to put together something for that one, too. Three random participants will receive their choice of a set from tomorrow's big release. You can find the sketch and all the details on the Verve blog!

Here's my quickie:

The sentiment is from a new set called Beautiful Kindness.
