Verve New Release Spotlights Day 2


LOVE NOTES

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to Day 2 of the Verve New Release Spotlights, where today we are featuring the stamp set: Love Notes that I know you will fall in love with - they are filled with such a perfect combination of sentiments that you have always wanted and the sweetest stamp images that coordinates with the dies that Julee will be releasing! 

I made this card for my DH - as soon as I saw the You + Me sentiment - I knew it was for him - because I remember writing that in the sand when we were first dating :) and I love the combination of sentiments - the "you + Me always" with the sentiment " together forever" :) I created a border of xoxoxo's in the background and love that the stamped image of the Classy Label Die has dotted lines and it was fun to stamp the sentiment ontop of it. I created a little frame with the ruffled ribbons and then attached the little stamped hearts to the corners. Using the large Jotted Heart Die I layered that first and then added some hearts ontop of it and finished it off with just a wee bit of liquid pearls on the scalloped border:

Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Love Notes from Verve StampsPaper: We R Memory Keepers (DP) and PTI (Cardstock)Ink: Ladybug Red Memento and Tuxedo Black ink from Memento Dies: Jotted Heart Die and Classy Label Die from Verve StampsAccessories: ruffled ribbon, bling, epoxy hearts, dimensionals, heart punch, white gel pen, EK success punch and red lined tape.

I was so excited to create another project with this stamp set, especially with the sentiment: "I love you to the Moon and Back". I stamped the sentiment in the classy label die and used the heart stamped image with the dotted lines to use as a journaling tag. I wanted to create a little framed scrapbook page with my wee ones with this sentiment - because we say this to each other at bedtime (although, our kids try to out do each other by telling us that they love us not just to the Moon but to Jupiter and back!). I added a wee bit of blue wash to the photo so that it would bring out the blue in the DP :
Card Ingredients:Stamps: To the Moon by Verve Stamps
Paper: :October Afternoon DP
Ink: Memento: Tuxedo Black ink
Accessories: red ribbon from stash, EK scalloped punch, liquid pearls, dimensionals, copics and bling. Shadowbox frame in black.

 I totally loved creating these projects from this awesome and fun stamp set and it was so much fun to create a little page of my wee ones :) This stamp set is seriously FILLED to the Brim with awesome and perfect sentimetnts! Check out what the Divas created with this awesome stamp set and don't forget: We love to celebrate here at Verve, so we've hidden a prize along the hop today!  One lucky commenter on one of the Diva Hop Spots below will receive all of the sets and dies featured today...  Swirling Hearts, Sweet Treats, Classy Label Die, Jotted Heart Die and the Embossed Oval Die!  Deadline for commenting is 6PM Mountain on Friday, January 7.  Winners will be announced during our ReLeAsE pArTy that night!
