New Verve Stamps!



Got home from work around 11:00 PM and there was happy mail waiting for me on the kitchen counter! New Verve stamps and dies and there was no way I was going to go to bed without getting inky first - lol!  Jen's Deconstructed Sketch Challenge is one of my fave layouts (one that I've nicknamed the "corner L" sketch).  I started with the dotted border stamped in Soft Suede, then layered a rectangle of designer paper from Prima's Botanical Collection.  I then stamped a Soft Sky chevron border and fussy cut it.  Next came the sentiment die cut with MFT Fishtail Flags Die-Namics.  The flower was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa on X-Press It Blending Card then colored with Copics.  The butterfly was die cut on vellum then stamped and gold embossed.  A sprinkling of sequins topped off the card. 

The colors are for the Color Challenge on SCS: Soft Suede, Soft Sky, Pear Pizzazz, and Crisp Cantaloupe with the dessert option to create a feminine card.

STAMPS: Happy Place (Verve) - flower and butterfly
                 Moments Remembered (Verve) - sentiment
                 Better Together (Verve) - chevron and dotted borders
ACCESSORIES: Happy Doodles dies by Verve, Citrus Blend sequins by Avery Elle, Gold embossing powder, Wink of Stella clear brush marker.
