Verve's Anniversary Sneak Peek!!


I'm so excited to finally be able to share a sneak peek of one of Verve's newest Anni-VERVE-sary releases. I combined the two sets: Delightful & Delicious and A Cup of Life, to make a 3 x 3 Notecard set. I also found this sweet little box designed by Andrea Walford. You can find her template HERE.


This was easy as pie to make. All the dp is Periphery (Basicgrey). I know it's old, but it's my all-time favorite!! I LOVE the colors and patterns. The main images and sentiments were stamped with Espresso (Adirondack Dye Ink), and for the matting and base I used Birchtone Light and Dark (Prismatics), and sewed around all the edges. Each panel is ink distressed with Frayed Burlap (Ranger Distress Ink), and I added a bit of bling with Mini Muliticolored Rhinestones (Zva Creative), and Spring Rain Twill (PTI) with SU! buttons.

Finally, the paper distressing was all done with one of my favorite distressing tools....my fingernail. *grin*

Be sure to check the SCS Verve Forum for some fabulous chances to win Verve Bucks, and the entire new Release. You have until this evening at 6:00 pm Eastern Time.
