Verve April Release Spotlights - Day 1

Hi Everyone,


It's time for another fun and super lovely release from Verve Stamps where today the DT and I are sneaking samples from 2 super cute stamp sets and dies. I chose the lovely flowers from the Joyful Blooms stamp set and coordinating dies to create this card: I love the sentiment: Celebrate Today! yay!!!





Card Ingredients:
Paper: MME and choice PTI paper
Stamps: Joyful Blooms stamp set 
Inks: Memento Rich Cocoa and Tuxedo Black
AccessoriesJoyful Blooms dies, black pearls from Want2Scrap, EK success border punches,oval nesties, and dimensionals 

I loved making this fun card because of the lovely coordinating dies! It was fun to stamp a flower and then use the die as a mat for that size of flower - and all the sentiments in this set are just so positive and fun!. I cut out an oval shape and then popped up the card stock on an A4 card and then added the popped up flowers inside the oval. An and all it was a super fun and easy card to create! 

I can't wait to see what the rest of the DT has created with the gorgeous stamp sets that are being peeked today - please check them out with me here:


Please stop tomorrow for more release day fun!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! 
Big Hugs,
Sankari :)
