It's time to shine our sneaky Verve spotlight on some brand new stamps! We're counting down to Verve's release party this Friday night, April 15, with FOUR days of Spotlight Hops! And since we love to share, there's a prize hidden on one of today's hop spots! Just leave a little shout-out in the comments as you hop about for a chance to win some new Verve of your very own! You can check out the Verve Blog for all the prize details and deadlines.
Today, we're shining that spotlight on 4 fun sets! Bunny Shake, Birthday Phrases, Faithful Phrases, and Happy Phrases! Believe it or not, I have a couple cards to share with you today. First up, is this adorable bunny from Bunny Shake!
I am sorry about the poor lighting, I just couldn't get this Berry Sorbet card to photograph right, you ever have problems like that? LOL! I used Andrea's fabulous VLV April Week 2 sketch for the layout of my card and some papers from SU!'s in-color paper pad (Hostess Level 1). I also had to go big with the bows, I just love how they look with those little roses!
To add a little sparkle, I colored all the pink polka dots on the patterned paper with Star Dust Stickles. I love how it adds a little something, without overpowering. Try it yourself! It really dresses up a boring piece of patterned paper.
Okay, up next is this little number, using a sentiment from Faithful Phrases...
I stamped and embossed a floral image from Serenity on Kraft cardstock and trimmed it in lace ribbon. I also had a couple doilies on my desk that I've been wanting to use so I spritzed it with Glimmer Mist (to tone down the stark white) and mounted the main image on top of if. I sewed around the Lemon Tart card base and then added the sentiment and some twine and a button.
Last one for today, using a sentiment from Happy Phrases...
I know this looks valentine'y, doesn't it? LOL! That wasn't my initial plan, but why fight fate?:) I used that other doily, some Raspberry Fizz ribbon/button, and the heart is cut out with the Jotted Heart die! I ran it through my Big Shot and Seeing Spots embossing folder and then added the sentiment strip. I wanted to add a few red pearls for texture as well, I love how it turned out!
