World Making Card Day and New Verve!

Happy World Cardmaking Day and welcome to Verve's October 2014 Release Celebration! Three new sets, three new dies and a sequin mix just released this morning and the Divas are here to share some of our first looks at the new goodies with you! I'm so excited to show you a sneak peek of some new stamps that we're also going to be previewing for you next week! My card samples from the new Inspire Hope...which is full of uplifting and encouraging sentiments:


I started off shabbing up the edges with both a paper distresser and some Antique Linen ink. I then sewed the perimeters of all the patterns on to the base. There's a peek of a Floral Oval die cut off to the right and the sentiment is stamped on a Wavy Heart die...then lightly distressed with Tattered Rose distress ink. The floral cluster consists of roses, pearl/tulle stamens and a cannibalized raffia piece from another sticker. Lastly I added the Zva Creative crystal flourish.

  32. Sometimes I wish I could be in the room when you create to see what you reach for and how you blend all the elements of your cards. You have such a masterful touch and always have the perfect little something to put along the edge or nestle in the corner. Lots to love here! Thanks for the inspiration!
