Felt Thanks

Pin It


I don't use felt nearly enough in my projects.  I don't know why. . .I guess I never really think about it.  I do love it, though!  I created this card using some of the new, yummy colors available at Taylored Expressions!! 

The background was created using Carrot Felt along with the Lattice Cutting Plate.  The leaves were created using the Leafy Branch Die with Split Pea Felt.  The flowers use the Friendship Blooms Dies with Marshmallow Felt and some Birthday Boy Dots.  The greeting was created using the Band It Die with Caribbean Felt and the sentiment from the Shades of Thanks Die with Marshmallow Felt

I just LOVE the texture that felt gives a card.  You can't help but touch it!  Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

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.

Pin It

Taylored Expressions is having its first ever Retirement Sale! Since 2008, TE has released more than 500 stamp sets and to make room for new products they are bidding a fond farewell to 75 beloved sets. These retiring sets are 40% off and, once they are gone, they are gone! Visit the Retirement Sale HERE and collect your favorites before they get away. 


I am using one of my favorite sets from TE, Bugabee.  I am very sad that Bugabee is retiring!  I also used the coordinating Bugabee Bugs Dies.  I stamped a flower from the set on the card base just for a fun bit of color.  This is a happy set that is sure to bring a smile to anyone's face!!

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!
