You cannot believe how excited I am to jump on board with a Verve release this month! Thank you Julee and the Diva's for letting me hang with you this week.
For my shiny spotlight card today, I'm using the new Get Together Stamp Set, that has all the right sentiment combinations of hot bevvies that I would use for my friends and family!
I stamped the butterfly teacup in safe black ink to color with my Copic markers, I believe R32, R42 and R39, on the teacup. Stamped the sentiment in two layers from the same Get Together Stamp Set one on the white paper cutting out with a nesting circle die and the other on colored paper from My Mind's Eye Jubilee Paper Pad and cutting it out with the A Cut Above Scroll Die from Verve.
I finished up the card layering a pattern paper and black cardstock together for the base panel and a black cardstock cut with the Flourished Trim Die for the negative cut of the die for an edging. A piece of burlap paper was wrapped and tied with black #10 cotton thread before layering it onto the card base and adding the sentiment layers. The sentiments are popped up with a few foam squares here and there. That's it!
Your next hop from here will be to see fellow Guest Diva Amy Tsuruta on her blog! Thanks for stopping by my blog!
I think this card would go well with the Inspiration Challenge this month at Verve. What do you think?
