Welcome to Verve's October Release Retrospective Blog Hop! Today the Verve Divas and Guest Divas are back with another dose of inspiration using the brand new release! All of our new products are available to order in the Verve shop and on sale through the end of October! Plus, we've got a sweet hop prize in store!
Another chance to take a look at all of Verve's new goodies!! I have a couple cards for you today!!
For my first card I played with Angel Voices and created a background by stamping one of the smaller angels in memento tuxedo black onto PTI select white card stock. Next I colored the angels with copics and stamped the small "crisscross" heart in red. To fill in the spaces between angels, I stamped the small star in memento tuxedo black. That sweet sentiment is from the same set- love the different fonts!! To finish it off, I added a few sequins and white beads.
This card uses Autumns Blessings stamps and Autumns Thanks dies. I'm calling this my "color blocking" card. The base was cut and distressed with a distressing tool. I stamped the dot image from Better Together in the upper left and lower right for a little interest. Next I die cut this sweet wreath twice and colored with copics. One wreath was adhered directly to a white circle - I added foam dots to the second wreath and adhered on top for some dimension. Sentiment was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed in white. Last- a little Verve seam binding to finish it off.
One more ditty- I love to make tags but, don't always think of doing that...these ended up being gift card holders.... here's some sweet/simple gift card holders using Angel Voices...
The polka dot background on these kraft glassine bags uses Verve's Bountiful Backgrounds (sorry it's retired). Added some paint splatters and made the banners using Verve's Banner Bundle die set. Below you can see how nicely a gift card fits. I'm thinking some young one will think they're hearing Angel Voices when they get their gift card :-)
All right enough of me... it's time for some good news...
