Verve Stamps Splatters Stencils and Scallops

card 1

Welcome back to the final day of our Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops!  Today is release day!  That's right!  There's new Verve in the store this morning, including 2 beautiful new stamp sets, 3 die sets and a sequin mix just released, and they're all available to order right now!  Today's inspiration is designer's choice, our favorites from the release.  My card has bits and pieces from several of the new releases and is my favorite project so far.

card 2

I used a new stencil and texture paste to start my background, then used some Glimmer Mist sprays to add some color and shine.  I made a pool of Distress Ink and dipped my card in it to add a different shade of blue/green.  I splashed some of my sprays onto the background to create the splattered look.

card 3

I layered several paper flowers over a torn section of lace and crocheted lace, then tucked the foliage from the Great Kindness Die Set behind my flowers.  I mixed some vintage glass glitter with mod podge to form a paste, and used my palette knife to scrape it in sections around my card.

card 4

I love the flower die from the Pottery Die Set because it is the perfect shaped scalloped circle die and works beautifully with so many Verve stamps. Any product that works double duty is a great investment in my book.  Here I used the thank you sentiment from the Kindness Matters Set.  I wish you could see this card in real life, the color is so much prettier and it has a softness that didn't translate in the photos.
