Verve Stamps: New Release Spotlights Day 3


Hi Everyone,

Today is Day 3 of the Verve Stamps New Release Spotlight hop - where today we are sneaking peeks from the amazing, versatile and beautiful stamp set: Love Deepens and the lovely Proverbs 31:28 Plain Jane! 

I can't even tell you how much I adore the Love Deepens stamp set - Julee has thought of all the combinations and the sentiments in this stamp set are so versatile with each other to create the perfect greeting or message for your beloved ones.

Speaking of beloved ones, our daughter's birthday was over this weekend and she was soooo happy - I think she knew that it was her special day and I don't think I have seen her so happy and excited :) I wanted to create a special scrapbook page to commemorate this special moment:


Here is a close up of the picture and the sentiment - I love her sweet smile - I call her my wee little bird - and so I wanted to add some paper birds and little flower accents around her: I snapped this picture of her at her party - I love that she wanted to wear a rose in her hair and I love the yellow of the dress. It's amazing that just when you think that you couldn't possibly love someone anymore ... you do - more than you ever thought you could....  :) I knew I wanted to use the gorgeous sentiment: My love for you deepens over the years."  that I stamped into the Sweet Scallop die from Verve Stamps. 


 Here is a close up of the banner that I strung through with some embroidery ribbon - I popped up each one and then curled it a little bit and layered it over the DP. I added a little rosebud to the sweet scallop frame with the sentiment and added some tiny liquid pearls around the edges:



FRAMED

I can't even tell you how much I loved making this page for my wee one - I kept thinking of how quickly life changes - how one minute you are holding a wee one and then next second - they are getting too heavy to hold - amazing how fast time flies!
I finished off the page with some flower and birdies from Prima and some heart puncbes from Martha Stewart and tied a little banner across the top of the page with some bling in the middle. And after I was finished, I put it in an 8x8 Shadowbox frame - I love that I get to see her sweet smiling face everytime I walk by :) Here is a picture of the framed page :


Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Love Deepens from Verve Stamps
Paper: Bo Bunny and Bazzill cardstock
Inks: Chalkbox inks: Dark Brown
Verve Dies: Sweet Scallop die from A Cut Above Verve Stamps
Accessories: liquid pearls, dimensionals, ribbon from stash, flowers/birds (from Prima), EK success scallop punch, Nestabilities (Labels 16) and pennants, bling from Bo Bunny, Heart punch from Martha Stewart.

My daughter really loved it when she saw it this morning and now my son is asking me where his scrapbook page is... lol! I can't wait to make one just for him :)
