I made my card for today using the beautiful stamps from the newest release and paired it with the super amazing (AH-MaH-ZING!) Seam Binding Ribbon from Verve stamps - you can check them all out here. I love the flower from the Surely Goodness stamp set and paired it with one of my most favorite sentiments "Shine Brightly" from the Remember This stamp set from Verve stamps.
I love this sentiment - I just can't tell you HOW happy it makes it to stamp this sentiment - its such a lovely sentiment of encouragement! All the sentiments in the Remember This set have that quality of being the most perfect sentiments - Julee is amazing like that - always creating such lovely sentiments! The CAS style of cards is a really hard one for me - I always struggle with it because I always feel like 400 jillion layers are missing! So here is my attempt to a CAS style card trying to keep the sentiment and the flower as the centerpieces :)
I stamped the flower from the Surely Goodness stamp set - it is such a gorgeous flower and I stamped it 4 times - each time cutting layers of the flower and then popping it up on the previous layer. I love the colors from the this MME DP so I kept the colors minimal and colored the flower only blue and then mixed some greens and grays for the leaves. Here is a closer up picture of the layers on the flower and the lines of pearls on the side of the flower and above the sentiment:
Stamps: Surely Goodness stamp set (flower) and the sentiment is from the Remember This stamp sets from Verve Stamps
Paper: My Mind's Eye, PTI white and gray Bazzill cardstock
Inks: Memento London Fog,
Accessories: photo angle chomper, line of pearl bling, dimensionals, spellbinders nestabilties, large pearl bling, Signature Ribbon collection from Verve stamps and copics.
I just loved making this card - I think I could make all my cards with this sentiment - its just so inspiring to the inside sunshine in all of us just to let that light that we are - shine out bright!!!
