Are you ready for day FOUR of the Verve Holiday Release count down? Today's set is going to make you SO happy!
Today, we're introducing you to Glad Tidings, a beautiful set of snowflakes, sentiments, and a fun tag!
I created this card on the fly today, after seeing THIS card by Debbie Olson on her blog today! As soon as I saw the shape and colors I wanted to make one of my own, lol!
I made the card base with my Labels Nestabilities. For the background paper, I stamped the large snowflake from Glad Tidings in Versamark randomly on the Blueberry Sky cardstock and embossed them in white ep. Then I stamped the smaller snowflake in Cherry Cobbler ink randomly, over some of the white snowflakes. When I was done stamping, I went over the cardstock with tissue to get the red ink off the embossed snowflakes. Now it looks like some of the snowflakes are in the background, cool! I love this technique (emboss resist) but hardly ever do it. I think I'm too lazy, lol!
Next I stamped the tag from Glad Tidings in Summer Sky (Memento) ink and stamped the sentiment (oh mylanta, I love this FONT!!!) The snowflake in the tag is a part of the tag stamp, isn't it PRETTY? I glitzed it up with some Gold Ice Stickles and a rhinestone. I also added some rhinestones to the white snowflakes on the background cardstock. I finished this card off with some Blueberry Sky satin ribbon and a Pure Poppy button and some floss! Super fun card, I loooove shaped cards!
What's this, you ask? Well it's another project!
When you're really inspired by a stamp set, it helps with your creativity, and this WHOLE RELEASE inspires me! It makes me think of Country Christmases, sparkly snowflakes, gift-giving, etc...
We are in the middle of a typhoon today (a huge one, category 4!!!) so we didn't have to work. W000t!!!!! I was in my craft room ALL DANG DAY! It was GREAT! I love playing hookey from work, lol!
Okay, sorry, I digress!
I stamped the Sweet Scallop Tag Plain Jane onto some Rustic White cardstock and cut the tags out. Then I stamped the wreath image and colored the holly and berries with my Copics and added the "To, From" stamp from the same set. I glued the circle image onto the tag and that's it! Just added some twine to the tag hole and I have a few matching tags:) They're pretty simple, but I sometimes like simple, lol!
I added a tag, some ribbon, and a glittered-up clothes pin to a small kraft sack so you can see how it would look. I love these home-y, country colors. These are my colors this year!
Don't forget: this Friday, October 29, we'll be releasing a whole lot of new Verve! We hope you'll join us over in our SCS forum for our Release Party from 9-11pm Eastern on Friday night!
