Verve Stamps: New Release Spotlights Day 2


Hi Everyone,

Welcome to Day 2 of the Verve New Release Spotlights - where we are sneaking peeks from the July Release of Verve Stamps that will be released tomorrow July 8th! Today, we are sneaking peeks from the gorgeous new stamp set: Words Cannot Express - and truly Julee has outdone herself with these gorgeous fonts and such perfect sentiments from the heart! 

TODAY'S Featured Set:


Its absolutely amazing to read all the sentiments in this stamp set - everyone is a gem - but I think my favorite is this sentiment that reads: "I'd thank you from the bottom of my heart, but for you, my heart has no bottom." What an absolutely sweet sentiment... and that is exactly the way you feel with your closest friends, parents and siblings. I loved creating this card from heart with this sentiment of the heart:


I had fun pairing up these colors (could be that I was channeling the Baltimore Orioles color scheme when made this card while I was in Baltimore ;) After I finished I added a little heart to the top corner of my card and finished it off with some butterfly punched DP with some pearls in the middle. Here is a closer peek at the sentiment:


Card Ingredients:    


Stamps:  Words Cannot Express by Verve Stamps
Paper:  Webster's Pages and Basic Grey with Black cardstock from Bazzill
Inks:  Memento Inks Tuxedo Black and Tangelo
Accessories:  ribbon from American Crafts, butterfly punch from MS, pearls from Want2Scrap, liquid pearls (buttercup), heart punch border from MS, dimensionals, Spellbinders, heart punches and corner chomper


Its so fun and easy to create a card when you just love all the sentiments - and I think the hardest part of making this card was to decide which sentiment to use - because they are all so very amazing! Speaking of amazing - please check out these amazing Divas and their creations using this beautiful stamp set:
