OK, sorry, didn't mean to yell so early in the morning....I'll lower my voice now so you can have your coffee so my yelling won't bother you as much....see, I'm not yelling.....
See my title?!?! OMG, I AM A VERVE DIVA (did you NOT guess that it was me)??!!! LOL!!! Can you tell I am REALLY excited?!?!? I feel SO lucky to be included amongst such a talented group of girls and to use such beautiful stamps that I absolutely LOVE!!! When Julee called and asked if I would like to be on her design team, I couldn't say YES fast enough!!! Thank you SO MUCH Julee for this AWESOME opportunity! I'll stop yelling at you now and will show you a couple of cards that I made using my newer Verve stamps!! Did you know Julee is having another release April 17th??? Don't worry, Ill remind you about it when the time gets closer!! LOL!!!
Here is my first card ~
The base of this card is Baja Breeze with a mat of Kraft and then Whisper White CS. The decorative paper is from the Parisian Breeze Collection. I added the strip across the lower half using first Whisper White and then Kraft CS that I ran through my Cuttlebug using my Swiss Dots embossing folder. The white ribbon is from May Arts and the Kraft Tafetta & Silver buckle are from SU! The Thanks sentiment is from Verve's Circular Sayings set and was stamped on Whisper White using Chocolate Chip ink. This was then cut out using my Circle Nesties and matted on Kraft and then Parisian Breeze DP.
The focal image is from Verve's Floral Symphony set. I stamped the stems using Mellow Moss ink and the flowers using Baja Breeze ink and then colored using a blender pen and the Baja Breeze ink pad. I did add white flock to the centers of the flowers using my Quickie Glue pen. I then used my rectangle Nesties to make a shaker box. I cut a larger scalloped rectangle from the floral paper for the base and made a window with the rectangle Nesties from the Baja Breeze CS. I added a Window sheet and taped it on the inside of the window and then added some dimensional strips, on top of the window sheet on the inside of the window, to enclose the entire window. I then added the clear microbeads and adhered the focal image piece on top of the dimensional strips. The final step was to adhere the shaker box to the scalloped rectangle and then mount the entire piece on the card using dimensionals. The butterflies were punched using my MS punch and then painted with Gold Shimmerz. Here is a closer look ~
Now, on to my next card! I really LOVE the Floral Symphony AND the Circular Sayings so, I ended up using it again on my next card. The flowers matched my NEW Pink Paislee paper PERFECTLY! What do you think???
The layout of this card is from Jen's SFYTT from Saturday. The base of this card is Whisper White with THIS yellow shade of Pink Paislee DP next and then a mat of Chocolate Chip and to top it off, THIS floral Pink Paislee DP. The rectangle across the bottom is THIS light blue Pink Paislee DP and then matted with Barely Banana CS. I stamped the sentiment from Circular Sayings directly on the DP using Chocolate Chip ink and then added some light blue crystals. The 3 squares are THIS Pink Paislee DP and then matted with Chocolate Chip CS. The light yellow ribbon is from May Arts and the little blue knot is a scrap I had laying around.
The flowers and stems are from the Floral Symphony set and the darling flower pot is from the Miracles Blossom set. I stamped the flowers 2 times using Pumpkin Pie ink and the stems were stamped directly on the Whisper White CS using Mellow Moss ink. I cut out one of the 3 flowers, colored it lightly using Barely Banana ink & a blender pen and added the same light blue crystals and then mounted it on top of the first stamped image using dimensionals. The flower pot was stamped directly on the polka dot DP and the light blue DP. I cut the top rim out of the light blue DP and the bottom pot part from the polka dot paper. I glued the rim on the top of the polka dot pot and then adhered the entire pot at that base of the stems. The image is matted using Chocolate Chip CS. Here is a closer look at the flowers ~
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great day! I'll meet you back here tomorrow for Jbelle Tuesday! We have a really fun challenge in store for you!
