Verve Stamps May Release Blog Hop!



This card was so fun to put together! I created that background with my Gelatos and blended the colors together with baby wipes. I then embossed the flowers from Be Blessed in white ep. I cut two other flowers out of some of the scrap background paper with the Petal Points die set and embossed those in white also. I popped them up on dimensionals and layered them over the sentiment panel. The sentiments are from Wonderful Marvelous!


Next up is a fun card I made with the Be Blessed set.


I stamped the flowers from Be Blessed in aqua ink on the card base. The sentiment you see is actually one stamp, but I cut it up so I could use it in pieces, particularly that happy image. I love that I was able to create this fun gradient sentiment!!! I'm crazy about this stamp set:) I also busted out the Sprightly Sprigs dies and cut a couple of those out also and layered them around the sentiment. For a last touch, I added some sequins from the Shine Bright mix.

Great cards...I really like the first because of the great details and the sentiment expressed. It would surely bring happiness to anyone lucky enough to receive it!

Love, love, love the first card! The background reminds me of rainbow sherbet--yummy. The sentiment pops on this background and you've done a beautiful job of adding raised elements and stitching.
