All Things Grow with Love

I had today off and it's rainy and thunder-stormy (is that a word? LOL!) so I had allllll day to get my crafty on in my stamp room! I knew for one of my cards, I wanted to play with some of the newly released Verve sets! Did you get your order in? I'm serious when I say it's my favorite release to date. Lots of fun flowers and the Elegant Leaves die? *SWOON!*
The next thing I needed to figure out was what colors I wanted to play with. I went searching for a challenge and stumbled upon the new CR84FN color challenge!


Are those gorgeous colors, or what???

Here's my card using stamps from Bloom and Grow, plus the Floral Circles and Elegant Leaves dies...


I started out with a Rustic Cream card base. The Aqua and Blue colors I used are Aqua Mist and Spring Rain by PTI. I cut a bunch of flowers out with my Floral Circles dies and then stamped and embossed matching blooms in white ep. I cut some Elegant Leaves dies from Rustic Cream cardstock and then stamped the matching leaves from Bloom and Grow and embossed them in clear ep. The doily is cut out with the new doily die by MFT. The next step was just to arrange all the blooms and leaves in that lower left corner. I stamped the sentiment, from Bloom and Grow, in Rich Espresso ink.


I thought this card needed a butterfly. A garden just isn't complete without one! I cut the vellum butterfly using the Flutterby die, three times. I then stacked the butterflies and separated the layers for some dimension, cause I figured this card was lacking in that department:p Last thing I did was add a bunch of Kaiser pearls!

All these stamps and dies are now available! Click HERE to see all the new goodies:)

This is stunning, Amber. I love that new set from Verve. I don't own any Verve stamps yet, but they sure do have some great stamps. I love how you stamped the flowers in white on colored CS. Your creation is so soft and serine.

Thanks so much for joining us this week at CR84FN! :)
