Verve October Release Blog Hop

Click HERE for my SugarPea Designs Tick-or-Treat Blog Hop
 
Welcome to Verve's October Release Retrospective! 
 

I've had a great time playing with the beautiful October release stamps as one of the Verve Guest Divas and am back with one last look at Good Work and Just Breathe. Everything spotlighted is available to order in the Verve Store and is currently 20% off! Plus, we've got a sweet hop prize in store, so read on for more!

 My first card uses the Good Work stamp set and coordinating Good Work Flower Die Set

I watercolored a bright purple background over my white embossed sentiment. I used the same technique on the die cut flower and love the serene softness of it. Then I created a rectangular opening for a shaker card and sprinkled in color coordinated sequins and clear micro beads and rain drops.

My second card also employs a watercolor technique using acetate to smoosh the color onto the watercolor cardstock. I also smooshed color into masked stripes on the card base, lightening the color as I worked from the bottom up.

A single sentiment from Just Breathe is embossed in copper embossing powder and embellished with a trio of wood veneer stars for a clean and simple card. These beautiful sentiment stamps in Just Breathe and Good Work can definitely hold their own. I can't wait to spend a little more time with both sets and think you'll agree!

Lovely cards! I especially like the shaker card. The window cut really sets off the sentiment well and the little sequins really look like part of the design. I love it when shaker cards do that. Very cool.
