Verve New Release Spotlights: Day 3


TO THE MOON, SMALLEST THING Plain Jane, EMERY Plain Jane

Hi Everyone,
Welcome to the last day of the Verve New Release Spotlights, where today the spotlight shines on the cutest stamps To the Moon, Smallest Thing (Plain Jane) and Emery(Plain Jane) which have the sweetest sentiments to welcome and celebrate any new baby! Julee will be releasing all of the stamps previewed tomorrow night at the Release Party 9pm EST- so make sure to stop by!

Today - I created a card using a combination of the two Plain Jane stamps - I love this sentiment from the Smallest Thing, that says: "Sometimes, the smallest things take up the most room in your heart" - SO true! It doesn't necessarily have to be for a baby card (although it works perfectly) but can be for any occasion, from Valentine's to Thank you, to Just Because cards. I paired up the sentiment with the super cute little Emery Elephant :) I paper pieced his belly and ears and popped him up on some dimensionals. I also used the Jotted Heart Die that will be released tomrorow also to create the four panels from the Mojo Sketch #171 that I used for this card (and just a wee bit of liquid pearls :)))

 Card Ingredients:
Paper: Alphabet Soup (MME) and PTI cardstock
Stamps: Smallest Things Plain Jane and Emery Plain Jane
Ink: LAdybug Red and Tuxedo Black ink
Dies: Jotted Heart Die from Verve Stamps
Accessories: ribbon from stash, liquid pearls, dimensionals, copics and scalloped rectangles.

I had so much fun creating this card with sweet Emery and can't wait to see all the creations today! 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 the stamp set featured today...  Love Notes!  Deadline for commenting is 6PM Mountain on Friday, January 7.  Winners will be announced during our ReLeAsE pArTy that night!


Thanks everyone for stopping by!
Hope you are having a fabulous week!
Big hugs,
Sankari :))

LOVE Emery's paper pieced ears & belly - sweet card!

Stacy O'Dell said...

Sankari, Like I said before, I just love your cards and really appreciate the inspiration they give me! I have a question--I always am drawn to the liquid pearls you use on your cards; do you mind sharing with me if you apply them from the bottle, or use a stylus (or some other tool?). Your dots are so incredibly even all the time which I find so difficult to achieve, but would LOVE to use my liquid pearls more often. Thanks so much and Happy New Year! Stacy

I would seriously nibble on their cheeks every minute! LOL

Sankari, What an incredible amount of work you did on this card. Great combination of stamps and layering, to say nothing of hte Pearls. lol It all works so well together! Emory has become my favorite but this card convinces me that I may need the "Smallest Things' sentiment, too. Hmmm, I may need them all! :-)
