Cake and Candles ~ Verve Anniversary Hop



Welcome to Day 3 of the Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops!  It's time for another day of spotlighting the Verve release with the Verve Divas and special guests! I am super excited to be guest designing for Verve to help celebrate it's 10 year Anniversary.  How awesome is that.  I had the privilege of being on the Verve Design Team from 2009-2012, and it was seriously an honor.  

Today we're sharing our first projects featuring the Cake and Candles stamp set, another fusion of old and new. This birthday themed compilation includes some brand new birthday sentiments with a classy modern font pairing, as well as a few re-introductions of previous sentiments and plain janes.

I decided to go a bit vintage with the cupcake in this set.  I stamped the cupcake with Gray Flannel Memento Ink, onto X-Press It cardstock and colored it with Copics.  I cut it out and burnished it to give it some texture and dimension, and popped it up on some Rossi Belle Prima Cardstock.

Below is a close up so you can see the dimension of the cupcake a bit better.  If you click on the photo, you can see how the frosting is puffed up, and the cupcake wrapper is pleated.


That's it for my project today.
 
Everything previewed this week will be available to order in the Verve online store on Monday, August 28. If you just can't wait, you can pre-order the entire release now as the August 2017 Buy it All Bundle at a 30% discount through August 27.
