Playing with Verve

Published by at 7:36 am under Verve Stamps

Hello!! Hope you’re all having a great week!! It’s been SO nice here, feels like fall is around the corner and I LOVE IT! :) I wanted to share a few more of my new Verve samples with you! I hope you enjoy! :)

This one uses the Grateful Elegance set! This whole card was dipped into a pot of Shimmerz! 😉  I colored the flowers in Rustic Red, then I did the background patterned paper with the Candle Light! I distressed all the edges and did the faux sewing just eying it out! The strip behind the flowers was stamped on a transparency sheet.

This card uses the Artful Elegance stamp set!  I used the new Ambrosia paper by Basic Grey! I also was reminded making this card how much I love clear stamps! Made it MUCH less time consuming to do the scrolls then using a stamp a ma jig! :) I ran the top part of the card through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder. When I was done I sponged everything to make the dots stand out a little more!

I hope you enjoy!! If you didn’t see the details for the new Jacksonbelle Embellishments Card Contest, please scan down to the previous post for the deets! 😀 Have a great day!

    These are both fantastic, Lindsey! I love the one *dipped* in Shimmerz (especially that random stitching) and the combination of the black and white with the BG Ambrosia on the second is so stunning!

    These are incredible, Linz! The black and white contrasts beautifully with the orange in the Ambrosia and you totally rocked the floral card with the stitching and the acrylic strip! The Verve style stamps are just made for your style- and I like it!

    These are both wonderful and too hard to pick a favorite. I like the dimensional flowers on the first and the background is just perfect for them. The second one has such interesting BG’s that reall create interest!
