Verve Sneak Peek ~ Text Objects

Hi there!!  It's day two of sneak peeks for Verve and the Diva's are peeking a FABULOUS new set called Text Objects!  I can't wait for you to see this set in it's entirety!!  You're going to love it!

I also did something that I don't normally do......I made two fairly CAS (for me) using the same layout and NO PATTERNED PAPER!  I won't keep you in suspense anymore....hehe



For this card I used the one of the scripty font stamps and stamped it repeatedly in Pure Poppy ink.  I punched an oval and then adhered it to the black mat with foam tape.  I stamped the larger heart from the set in Memento Tuxedo Black, cut it out with scissors, popped it up on foam tape and attached a Divine Twine buttony sentiment (yes, that's the techical term) with a glue dot.  The Pure Poppy layer was embossed in a diamond pattern using my Scor Pal.  A few small black brads finish the card.


 You can see here how I added the heart in the open space I had punched out. 

 
And here is the second card, done in different colors and using a the ship from the set.  I used another font stamp for the background and instead of embossing with my Scor-Pal, I embossed the Marina Mist layer with the Seeing Spots embossing folder.  I also added some Divine Twine in a different way.  After using the twine on this card I wished I had done it on the first, but I wasn't going to tear the card apart!!  LOL!  So what do you think?  Different for me, but fun to mix it up a bit!  OH, and these cards took less than an hour, which is LIGHTENING FAST for me!


I hope you'll join us tonight for the Verve Release Party at 9 pm EST in the Verve Forum on SCS!  The stamps will be available immediately following the party!

Don't forget to hop on over to the Diva's Blogs to see what they've done with Text Objects!


Thanks for stopping by!
