The second card is from the Anniversary Birds set. See, I told you I couldn't decide which set was my favorite! LOL I also just LOVE the paper Julee sent to us. It's all Scribble Scrabble and I LOVE it. This particular one is from the Felicity Collection. I stamped the two birds and then masked them to stamp the stems and leaves behind them. Julee made me laugh when she said it looks like these birds are having a "secret rendezvous in the grass". That is too funny because she's right! LOL I used a small strip of mint green paper and made slices in it to look like grass and attached it along the bottom of the panel. The sentiment was stamped in Whisper White Craft in and VersaMagic Thatched Straw. I love how it shows up on the dark cardstock.
The last card is from the Easter Elegance set. I love the "wrought iron" look of the cross. For this card I used the Bouncing Brayer Technique to get the look of a "glow" of light coming from the cross. I added some orange rhinestones to enhance the glow. Finally I faux stitched around the focal panel with a Basic Black marker and added some black organdy ribbon.
Be sure and check out the Verve Gallery to see all of the AMAZING things the Design Team has come up with for these sets. I'm sure they'll make it hard for you NOT to want the sets! :) Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
