Verve Project Parade: Day 4

Good Morning Everyone,

The Verve Project Parade has started on the Verve Stamps blog and this month, we are creating projects with the theme"Something Old, Something New." This doesn't mean wedding (but of course it could) - its a challenge for all the Verve divas and anyone who would like to play along to use a previously released Verve stamp set with one of the new sets that was just released this August 20th. (If you don't have the newest Verve sets - no worries, just mix and older set from your stash with a "new to you" stamp set and join the fun!

In thinking of something old and something new - I thought I would create something new from this old wooden box that I have had for over 10 years.

I painted the box the colors from the Pixilicious colors from Cosmo and then as I waited for it to dry, I cut the cardstock for my card (measures 5.5" x 5.5"). I wanted to use all the lovely flowers that Julee has designed in her Verve stamps, but couldn't fit them all into one card ;) so I picked three sets with the gorgeous flowers that Julee has designed and created a coordinating gift box to go with it as well.

I love everything about Julee's stamp creations - all the details and fonts are so perfect and in mix and matching the stamps - the hardest part was choosing which stamps to use! Julee always amazes me with her amazing designs! I love all the Verve Flowers - Here is a close up of the card: The big flower and the third flower are from the Great Friend stamp set, the second flower is from the Feel the Sun stamp set and the last flower is from the Dream Big stamp set. The inspiring sentiment is from the Kind Words stamp set - I absolutely love the font in this sentiment!

Here is another picture of all the different flowers from the different stamp sets:

Here is a picture of the giftbox that I painted. I used the sentiment and border from the Framed Wishes stamp set.
Here is another angle of the flowers - I paper pieced them as well as colored them in with copics and then layered them with some dimensionals:

Card Ingredients:
Paper: PTI base cardstock and Cosmo Pixilicious papers
Ink: Memento Tangelo, Pear Tart, Bamboo, Grape Jelly,
Stamps: Framed Wishes stamp set. Great Friend stamp set, Feel the Sun stamp set, Dream Big stamp set and the Kind Words stamp set from Verve Stamps
Ingredients: Liquid Pearls (Adirondack), ribbon and button from stash, Eucalyptus stickles, dimensionals, glaze, spellbinders, dragonfly embellie, white gel pen and plain wooden box and acrylic paint

I loved creating this little gift set and loved using all the gorgeous flowers that Julee has created (you can see all the Verve stamps with flowers in them by clicking this link here!). It was so fun to mix and match my Verve stamps and I hope that you will play along with us! There's lots of chances to win some Verve stamps - so for more details check out the Verve Blog and stop in every day to see a new project from the Verve Divas!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Wishing you the BEST day ever!!!
Sankari :)
