New Verve...So Fluttery & Beautiful

Welcome to the second day of our February 2013 Spotlight Hops!  I'm back again today with a couple of cards previewing upcoming sets for release this Saturday from Verve!   Today we're shining our Verve spotlights on the new stamps... So Fluttery, Shining Star & Beautiful Plain Jane .When I received these stamps in the mail, Julee had included some beautiful, colorful seam binding, and while my cards tend to be on the neutral/pale side, I couldn't resist putting this vibrant card together, using a new Plain Jane...Beautiful:


This seam binding collection is called Spring Fling. The colors matched perfectly with this new paper pad I bought, Zephyr by Prima. All edges are distressed and I added Verve's Pennant Trim die for a little interest. There are crystals and pearls from Zva Creative and a cute little glass button of unknown origin :)

This card is using another set being previewed today, this one is called So Fluttery. Full of sweet butterflies and sweeter sentiments...and the butterflies fit Verve's previously released Flutterby die, which I used here. The sentiments are stamped on another Verve die set, the Tiny Sweet Scallop Tag dies.
