We're also hosting a little giveaway,so why not join in the fun and hop along with us? Just leave a little shout out in the comments at each stop and you'll be in the prize drawing for the new products. Check out the Verve Blog today for a little more about the new goodies and all the prize info and deadlines.

If you're coming from visiting Julee, you're in the right place!  I have two card today using the NEW Butterfly Grace set along with the coordinating Graceful Butterflies die set.  I just think this set is beautiful!  I love the different butterflies, the beautiful sentiments. . .and the coordinating dies make it even better!

I stamped and die cut each butterfly.  The sentiment was stamped and embossed.  The papers are from the Sugar Chic Collection by Heidi Swapp.  I also used this week's Mojo Monday Sketch for my first card!

My second card is more on the simple side.  The papers are from the We Are Family Collection from Echo Park.  I used the tiny butterfly die from the die set for this card as well.  They are just SO sweet! Both cards have some Shine Bright Sequins for some sparkle.  Thanks for stopping by today!  Next on today's hop is Christyne!!

Let Your Dreams Take Flight

Hi there!  Today Taylored Expressions is partnering up with Word Art Wednesday for their weekly challenge!!  Taylored Expressions is sponsoring a $25 Gift Certificate to the TE Store, so we hope you'll play along!!

When I think of word art, I think of clean and simple so that the word art is the focus.  I used the Dreams Take Flight stamp from Taylored Expressions for my card.  In order to make it stand out, I stamped and embossed it in white and then stamped it again to create a mask for the butterfly and flowers.  Once I applied the mask to the images, I sponged some Cookie Monster ink onto the cardstock.   Because the image was heat embossed, the white embossing resists the ink so that the sentiment shows up beautifully.

After removing the masks, I used markers to color in the images.  As a finishing touch, I added some Snow Flurries Sequins for some sparkle.  I hope you'll play along with the challenge!!  Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful day!!
