Verve Stamps October Release Celebration, Day 2


It's quite a busy week on my blog, so I hope you find what you're looking for! If you're looking for my Reverse Confetti sneak peek post, please scroll down to the post right below this one, thank you!!

**********************************************

Welcome back to Verve's October 2014 Release Celebration! Three new sets, three new dies and a sequin mix just released on Saturday and today we're back sharing our inspirations with a new set illustrated by Chaitali Narla called Masquerade and the new Gown Die and Mask Die Set!

You may recognize these stamps as I used them on my card on Saturday! Well I was pretty excited to pull them out again today, so lets get to it!


I was searching Pinterest for some masquerade ideas, and let me tell you...I really really really want to go to a masquerade party now! Talk about AMAZING masks...how fun would that be! Have you ever been to one? I think they seem so mysterious and romantic...fun stuff:)

I used both the new Gown Die and the Mask Die set for this card. I know the proportions are a little wonky, but I still thought it would be fun to pair these together. I embossed the dress, feathers, and ribbon in gold embossing powder. The mask I just stamped in black ink. I embossed the black background with a Cuttlebug folder and my big shot, and then sprinked some gold sequins.

Great card. I always combine this set with Mardi Gras. A local organization has a fund raising party in February and this set would be great for invites, etc.
thanks for sharing a beautiful card.
