Pin It

The Divas will be spotlighting 3 new sets, a plain jane and a coordinating die set over the next few days, so keep your eyes peeled for some fresh Verve inspiration!

Today we're featuring the Peaceful Medallions set.   This set is full of different size medallions that you can use by themselves, or layer with smaller or larger medallions.  I decided to create a background using a number of the medallions in different colors.  The sentiment was stamped and embossed in white onto black cardstock.

For my card today, I used the new Moments Remembered set.   I stamped the sentiment on the card base and the image onto yellow cardstock.  I colored it in using Copic markers and a white gel pen.  I added some washi tape along the bottom and some hearts that were die cut using the Heart Quartet Die.  A couple sequins from the Shine Bright Sequin Mix were added to the heart to give a little bling.

VLV You Are My Sunshine

Pin It

A new Viva la Verve Sketch was posted on Friday!!  It's been a while since I've been able to play along, but I just LOVE them.  They give me a nice starting point for a card.  This week's sketch is hosted by Christyne

I used the Rain or Shine set from Verve for my card.  The patterned papers are from the Nautical Collection from Fancy Pants Designs.  I tried to make the umbrella look more like a beach umbrella for a summery card.  Along the top of the card, I used the Scalloped Trim Trio Die Set.  The hearts were created using the Heart Quartet Die Set.   

Come play along with this week's Viva la Verve Sketch!  We always LOVE to see what you create!

Hello

Pin It


Do you find that you never seem to have enough masculine cards in your stash?  Today I have a card to share that's a little more on the masculine side. . .no bling, no ribbon, no fluff!  LOL

I used papers from the Be Different Collection from Fancy Pants along with the June Stamps of the Month, Bright Boutique.  I thought the colors and patterns were a little more "manly".  I stamped and hand cut the phone.  The arrow was stamped and embossed in white onto the card to double as the "phone cord" and pointing to the sentiment on the card. 

I die cut one of the banners using the coordinating die set, Hi, Hey Hello and stapled it to the phone panel on the card.  Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a wonderful weekend!!

I Dig You

Pin It



Three out of my four kids are readers now, and they LOVE to read!  Isaac just finished kindergarten and he loves to read books to us.  :)  I was playing around with the I Dig You dies from Taylored Expressions and decided to make a few bookmarks for the summer! 

Isn't the little pail and shovel adorable?  I thought they would make great bookmarks for my kids to use during the summer, and the sentiment from Big Bold Summer is the perfect sentiment!

I used the Banner Stacklets 3 to create the bookmark bases and then stamped the sentiment.  After I assembled the bookmarks and added the little pails and shovels, I tied some ribbon on the top along with some Baker's Twine.  A simple project, but something that comes together quickly. . .and I know my kids will love them!  Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you've been inspired to create!  Have a wonderful day!

Taylored Expressions and Fancy Pants Designs

Pin It



Good morning!  I hope your day is off to a great start!  I have a couple of projects to share with you today!  They use wonderful paper collections from Fancy Pants Designs along with dies and/or stamps from Taylored Expressions!!

These projects are being featured on the TE Blog today, so you'll want to head over there for the giveaway information!!  :)  The first project uses the Nautical Collection from Fancy Pants along with the Mischief Maker At the Beach set from Taylored Expressions.   I also used the Little Bits- Sandcastle and Little Bits - Beach Umbrella dies from TE. 

The second project I have uses the Be Different Collection from Fancy Pants.  I thought the Sack It To You Die and Sack It - Monster Die would work PERFECTLY with these papers!  I used the corrugated paper that came in the collection to create the monster's face. 



The little monster up on the star was cut from the actual patterned paper.  I used the Star Stacklets from TE to create the tag.  

Doesn't that monster from the patterned paper work perfectly with this die? 

Taylored Expressions is giving away a Butterfly Parade stamp set along with a Fancy Pants Designs As You Wish Collection Kit! To enter, visit the TE Blog

PLUS, Fancy Pants Designs is giving away a second prize pack! Head over to the Fancy Pants Designs Blog for all the details. Good luck!
