Hey there! We're on DAY 2 of the Verve January Release Previews!
Okay, today's stamp set is my absolute FAVORITE. Ever. Yeah...EVER!!!!!!! Besides all the sweet sentiments, there are two stamps that coordinate with two new dies! The Jotted Heart and Classy Label die!
The stamp set we're previewing today is called Love Notes! Sweet, right? I had so much fun with this set that I made probably like 5 or 6 cards with it already, lol! DON'T WORRY! I won't paste 'em all up on my blog right now;) But you do get to see THREE of them:) Heehee...
First up, a fun and traditional color scheme!
I went with a CAS'ish design, lol! You like my new card style? CAS-ish? Ha! I say CAS-ish because the layout may be simple but it's still a little too involved to be considered straight up CAS, I think.
For this card, I cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and then cut out the center with my Classy Label die. I have a real thing for the negatives these dies leave behind, so don't be surprised if you see 'em a ton, mmkay?
After I cut out the Classy Label, I stamped the coordinating stamp from Love Notes and then popped the die cut negative up on dimensionals. I picked the class "Happy Valentine's Day" sentiment, stamped it on a strip of cardstock and then layered it over the die negative. I stamped the small heart from the set in black and Rhubarb Stalk and then cut them out and placed them randomly around the card! The little heart trio's that you see over the scallops are also in the set, fun!
After I was finished with this card, I thought I needed a more "manly" Valentine's Day card. My honey would not stick his nose up at that first card, but he's a manly man and for once I figured I'd try to "man-up" and go for it!
Well, I think I succeeded, and failed, lol! The scallop circle may not be manly, but I think everything else is, what about you?
You'll notice I kinda stayed with the same layout as my previous card, but added some long cardstock strips and a different sentiment treatment! Again, I used the Classy Label die negative (told ya!), stamped the label stamp on the card base and popped the negative up on dimensionals.
One last project to share with you! Thanks for hanging in there;)
I was just playing around with my new Fragments by Tim Holtz and these kinda just happened.
Love Notes Jewelry! EEEEK!!!!!!!!!! I'm wearing the Wild Thing necklace right now, ha!
All of these stamps come from Love Notes and Swirling Hearts! If you'd be interested in a little tutorial on how I made these, just let me know! Like I said, they weren't really "planned" so I didn't have the foresight to snap pictures as I was going but I'll be making a ton more so if you want me to toot *hee!* just let me know!
