Playing Along with Verve

I recently "discovered" Verve Stamps. (I love you, my blog buddies...but you sure are horrible enablers!) After browsing their website and penning a wish list that was a mile long, I settled for a few sets to get me started!




This is the very first card I made with my new stamps! I am posting it today because I decided to play along with their "Divine Details" Project Parade! You should play, too! Everyone likes a chance to win some stamps!

So, my divine details are:

  • the clear dew drops for an understated embellishment
  • the orange scalloped nesties around the circles to play off of the flower petals on the patterned paper, then adhered with dimensionals
  • the contrast of green/orange/brown
  • the big, chocolate stain ribbon


Stamps: Flowers of Tomorrow (Verve)
Paper: Whisper White, Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip, Tangerine Tango, Chatterbox Patterned Paper
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive markers, direct to stamp
Accessories: Robin's Nest Clear Dew Drops, SU Chocolate Satin Ribbon, Circle and Scalloped Circle Nestabilities

Thanks for stopping by! :)

My mouth is still hanging open (you could see my dentist's finest work, in fact!!) - this is BREATHTAKING!!! I can't figure out what I like the best - the colors (oh yeah)...the dp (yeah, that's it)...the focus on the sentiment (wait, I think that's it)...the layout (that's a good one)...or those dewdrops (okay...I give up!!)

Thanks to you - my horrible enabler!!

Ramona said...

Just beauti-MOUS! I love it. I have not dared to look at Verve stamps yet. I know about them though. YIKES!

Hmmm, I want to do NO paper for 100 projects. If you get to make an exception then, I want to make an exception too!! I want to buy the DCWV summer glitter stack before we start :)
I have to buy cardstock where needed for Stamp a stack and things I am selling and patterned paper for paper kits, but NOTHING for personal use until my 100 projects are finished. Sound fair? What are your terms?

Julie said...

Love the colors. The orange really stands out. Gorgeous.

Kim said...

HOLY COW that is awesome! What great stamps to get you started. Your background is amazing! Thanks for sharing your Divine Details.

thescrapmaster said...

Well, I want the Summer glitter stack! I think I am not going to be able to get it now that all the new ones are out though :( LOL I might have to just settle on one of these other gorgeous ones instead!! Choices choices! Not sure yet, but I am going to give myself 1 and that is IT!!!
