I'm a DIVA!!

No, not in real life... I am a Verve Diva now! Last night at the Anni-VERVE-sary party on Verve Member Forum on SCS, Julee announced that I am the newest Diva to join her Design Team! I am super excited, most of you know that I love Verve Stamps, so I am very honored to be a part of the Verve family.

Today I will show you a couple cards I made using some of the newly released Verve sets.

This first card uses the Fairy Tales set. I love the elegant font on this set and thought it would make a lovely wedding card. I embossed circle border with silver EP and added a touch of 3 small pearls. I think the simple colors of vanilla, white and silver make such an elegant wedding card.

Edited to add: I have been asked where I find my flat backed pearls. I get them at my LSS, but you can also find them online at Flourishes. On page two of their Card-Making Essentials section. You can also find them on Ebay with this search, but they are more expensive. Happy stamping!!

Card Deets:
Stamps – Fairy Tales by Verve Visual
Paper - whisper white, vanilla, silver foil, wedding DP from Target
Accessories - silver embossing powder, SU vanilla taffeta ribbon, circle nestabilities, flatbacked pearls, pearl stamens from Michaels

This card uses the Artful Elegance set. This large swirly stamp immediately made me think of making a black and white card. I love black and white cards with a splash of color. For this, I used PTIs Lavender Moon. I put small bling on each of the diamond parts of the pattern, you could do so much with this design. The amazing black striped organdy ribbon is from Pinkhedgehoge Papercrafts. The sentiment square border has Art Glitter in Volare.
