Hi Everyone,


Today is Day 2 of Release Peeks from Verve Stamps and Julee has created such cute designs with the Bright Spirits stamp sets and the Winter Tree Plain Jane! There are two coordinating dies that match the stamp sets - the Winter Fun Die Set and the Love Birds Die set that you can use to cut the the images out from the respective stamps or can die cut from DP. I wanted to create a simple card layout and I love the Winter Tree Plain Jane - SOOO much fun! I did a little back to back gluing of the tree and then popped adhered it to the Rounded Scalloped Frame from A Cut Above Dies from Verve Stamps

Card Ingredients:
Paper: Bazzil, vellum paper and Authentique Wonder collection
Stamps: Bright Spirits (Sentiment and star) and Winter Tree Plain Jane from Verve Stamps
Inks: LadyBug Red and Tuxedo Black 
Accessories: Spellbinder's Dies, bling, liquid pearls, felt, Rounded Scalloped frame die from Verve Stamps, Lace border punch from Martha Stewart, eyelet, ribbon from stash, Glossy Accents, large Snowflake punch out of vellum paper from Martha Stewarts and dimensionals

The sentiment and the star is from the Bright Spirits stamp set - I love the fonts in these gorgeous stamp sets - and I tried to keep it very simple in terms of layout so I can try to make more! I can't wait to see what everyone has come up with using these gorgeous stamps and dies - please check them out:
