You're Amazing! {VLVJuly2011}


Hi everyone and happy Friday!!   With a new Friday comes a new Viva la Verve sketch over the Verve Forums.  Laurie is our hostess this week and she has a beautiful sketch for everyone to play with!  I took a few liberties with the sketch, mainly because I had already glued down my main panel, AND I went in a different direction than I normally do.....Shabby.

I cut two hearts from Fossil cardstock using the Jotted Heart Die.  I sponged the edges of each with some Tea Dye and Vintage Photo Distress Inks.  I have been loving all of the crimped embellishments I've been seeing around lately and dug out my paper crimper, crimping both the hearts.  (So glad I decided to hang onto the paper crimper!)  The rose patterned paper was cut with Labels Three Nestabilities, the edges were sponged with the same distress inks and then were machine stitched.  The red polka dot and Vintage Cream layers were distressed with a distressing tool and then sponged with distress inks.  Some wonky stitching finishes the bottom panel. 


The sentiment was cut out with a Tiny Tag die from PTI.  I stamped the sentiment, from the new Small Phrases set, in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, sponged the edges and finished it off with some Kraft colored twine.  Some beautiful seam binding, a couple heart stick pins and adhesive flourishes finish the card.  All of the patterned papers are from the Cosmo Cricket Odds and Ends Mini Deck.

I hope you have a fantastic day!  Thanks for stopping by!
