Verve After Party!

Hi there and Happy Monday!!  Verve celebrated it's newest release last Friday night and today we're having a little After Party!  All of the Diva's chose a favorite card they created for this release and are sharing them on the Verve Blog today!

This is my favorite card from this release.  I made it with my Mom in mind for Mother's Day!  I feel so ORGANIZED!  I already have her card made!!  I usually wait until about two hours before I'm going to see her to whip one up, but I don't have to do that now!!  Yay me!  LOL....

I used two of the just released sets, Love Deepens and Bloom & Grow.  I love this sentiment from the Love Deepens, but wanted it to say Nana instead of Grandma.  To remedy that, I simply covered Grandma with tape and inked up, removed the tape and stamped the sentiment without the word Grandma.  I then inked up the individual Nana stamp and stamped it just below the sentiment!  LOVE that!  The flowers from Bloom & Grow were inked with Taken With Teal and Cherry Cobbler inks.  I love that you can two~step stamp these flowers.  They were cut out with the Floral Circle Dies and finished with a button and some twine.  The leaves were also inked in Taken With Teal ink and were cut out with the Elegant Leaves Die.  I can't tell you how well these dies cut....Like BUTTAH!   A couple rounded corners and some machine stitching and the card was done!

The April 2011 Stamp Collection includes all of the stamps in our April 2011 release, bundled together for a limited time. Each stamp set is packaged individually, but by purchasing them all together you save 15%! Collection price is good through April 30, while supplies last.

Thank you for stopping by!  I hope you all have a great week!
