You Have Got Style! (a Verve peek!)


Good Morning Everyone!

Happy Tuesday!!! I am so excited to be one of Julee's Guest Designer for her newest Verve release coming soon!!!! Mercy is Julee's other guest designer this release and I am so excited to work with her! I adore Julee and I absolutely adore her lovely stamps! And beyond anything else - Julee is just absolutely soooo sweet and encouraging and generous and fantabulous! Here is a card that I made from the stamp set Express Yourself that the Verve Divas are peeking today over at the Verve blog using the AVS201 Sketch which is one of the 5 Anni-Vervesary skethches that Julee has created - (play along with all five sketches and you could have a chance to win the WHOLE release!!! You can check out all the sketches here)


This is a special card for one of my friend's who is constantly styling and profiling it - even if she is wearing sweatpants - she looks uber fabulous! And she has a bday coming up - so I wanted to make an uber special card for her. I used Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite color challenge #14 where she encouraged us to embrace purple :) I do adore purple - love it - but somehow its hard for me to use it in cards sometimes because its so... purple :) This was a really fun group of colors and I SOOOOO wish I had these shoes in my closet!!! Wouldn't that be lovely! Of course I would probably be tripping all over the place since grace isn't exactly a quality of mine but it would be soooo nice if I had these shoes in my closet :) 


here is a close up look at the shoe -
 I added some Tiny Twinkles from Taylored Expressions
 and some liquid glaze:

Card Details:
Paper: Basic Grey for the Cream cardstock, Taj Mahal papers from DCVW
Stamps: Express Yourself from Verve
Ink: Eggplant from SU!
Accessories: K&CO bling, tiny twinles from Taylored Expressions, scallop punch from SU!, Circle cutter from CM, circle punch from CM, liquid glaze and dimensionals

I seriously love this set - I had so much fun playing with the yummy stamps! I love the flourish stamp too with this set - the possibilities are endless!! 

Check out Julee's blog Poetic Artistry for her beautiful cards with this set and keep checking the Verve Stamps blog this week for more sneak peeks!!!

Thank you so much for coming over to visit!!!

Big hugs to All!
Sankari :)
