Verve Sneak Peek - Dream Big


HI Everyone!
Have you been checking out all the gorgeous peeks of the upcoming August Verve Stamps Release over at the Verve Stamps Blog?! All I have to say is that Julee has outdone herself this release - every.single. image and sentiment in every single set is so beautiful - Gorgeous images, gorgeous fonts and all full of Verve-y yumminess!!! Today the Divas are peeking the beautiful stamp set called: Dream Big!

I love all the flower images and sentiments in this stamp set - scallopy wonderland I tell ya!! This set comes with three solid sized flowers and so I stamped them in different ink colors, cut them out and then popped them up on each other with a little button and bling in the center. I then stamped the leaf images twice - once onto the DP and the second one on white cardstock which I then cut out and popped up over the leaves.

Card Ingredients:
Paper: Echo Park Summertime, Prism cardstock
Stamps: Dream Big from Verve Stamps
Ink: Memento: LadyBug Red, RoseRed, Tangelo, Dandelion
Accessories: buttons, bling, ribbon from stash, Adirondack Liquid Pearls, butterfly punch from CM, dimensionals

I added some liquid pearls to the flowers and border and then stamped one of my favorite sentiments from this set: "Leave no words unspoken". Isn't that sentiment simply beautiful? It can mean so many different things to different people - it can mean to always say how much someone means to you, it can mean to never regret not saying something, it can mean to always speak from your heart... I love this sentiment so much.

It actually hits a little close to home. One of my uncles passed away two weeks ago very tragically - it was completely unexpected - he was in good health, good spirits, - but he passed away in an awful car accident. We were all shocked to learn of this tragedy and ever since then - I have always called my parents every day to say goodnight, I tell and show my DH and kids every day what they mean to me - and so when I was creating for today's Dream Big stamp set peek - I wanted to make this card for my parents to let them know what they mean to me. We were visiting them last week out East and I treasured every single moment that we shared as a family - it is so precious!

I love each of the sentiments in this set and can't wait to see how the Divas have used them in today's sneak peek of this gorgeous stamp set! Please hop with me and check out their creations below:

Wishing for you all to Dream Big and that all your Big Dreams come true!!!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
Hugs,
Sankari :)
