Guesting with Verve!

I'm so excited to be guest designing with Verve's latest release and couldn't BE more giddy over the delicious stamps that arrived from Julee - the fonts are just dreamy, and take a look at that wheat stamp! Speaking of Julee, the beauty, brains and brawn behind Verve, she's ever so generously giving away a $30 (yes, $30!) voucher to the Verve store to one lucky commenter on today's blog post!!
I've got two cards to share with you today using Good Work and Just Breathe, so let's get started.  

My wonderful wheat card starts with a card base stamped repeatedly with the wheat stamp in Versamark ink to create a whispy background. So easy with such impact. Then I tied burlap ribbon across the top and tied a stamped tag to it. The tag is stamped with a sentiment from Good Work in Versafine Onyx Black using my MISTI for nice, solid coverage. (Click HERE for a product review of the MISTI, it really is incredible.)

 My second card uses one of the many sentiments from Just Breathe, a wonderful set filled with encouraging words centered around breast cancer but so appropriate for many different occasions as well. I can't tell you how much I love that 'B' in Brave! 

I stamped the sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black with my MISTI over wide pink stripes and then layered it behind a rectangular opening. I'd considered making this into a shaker card but opted for a few wood veneer stars instead and really love how this one turned out. Clean and simple with a little fun sprinkled in.



Verve will be selecting a random commenter on this post to win a $30 gift voucher to the Verve Store! So leave a little love before Sunday, November 1 to be entered in the drawing. Winner will be announced on the Verve Blog on November 2.

I hope you've enjoyed my projects using Good Work and Just Breathe and am so thankful to be included in the October release at Verve.  I'll be back tomorrow with more Verve. Thanks for stopping by today!

Love those cards! I like how you off-set the second one.

Two gorgeous cards, Amy, that showcase your unique style: simple, with a twist, that makes people smile. And I'm definitely smiling! I'm especially smitten with the first, having spent summers and falls, while growing up, surrounded by fields of wheat. So gorgeous!

Two lovely cards. Those wheat stalks are perfectly subtle, but don't get lost in the background. The burlap bow really draws you into the focal point. Your black and pink card is stunning. Love the off-kilter focal point. Awesome cards! Bev (fellow Wisconsinite...)
