We are getting so close to the release, I can tell you all are wanting to get to the shopping cart by now. Hang on we have so many more sneak peeks and only a few more days left! Hasn't Julee just about amazed you with all these wonderful stamps and dies?!?!?!? Woo-hoo, let's get to the rest of the hop today!
I'm using the featured Learning to Sail stamp set and the Flourished Trim die on my card. I made the sentiment frame with the new Flourish die by cutting out two full length Flourishes and then two shorter ones for the tops. Once they were glued onto the sentiment paper, I cut the overlaps in each corner with utility knife from the inside to outside. The handmade flower and silk ribbon are hand colored to match some of the colors in the pattern paper. That flower is made from the Pointed Flowers and Scalloped Flowers die from this release as well. It's a bit of fussy coloring for a whole lot of satisfaction (if you ask this crafter anyway.) The card is inspired by the sketch over on the Anni-Verve-sary Challenge week forum. Julee and Laurie are the Diva Hostesses for that fabby sketch. It's totally worth it to participate, there are prizes, but the deadline is this Friday! Check out the many ways to win some new Verve by taking the links at the bottom of this post.
Happy hopping and see you tomorrow for another sneak peek day!
