Have you had a chance to check out the Sneak Peeks that have started over on the Verve Blog this week? I have a few projects to share with you today...
First is this simple little card I created with one of my favorite sentiments from the new Heart's Desire set from Verve Stamps (available after the Release Party Friday) for the Embellish Hearts Color Challenge, which was to use Red, Black and Pink on a Valentine's day project that incorporates hearts. You can read all about the challenge and see the beautiful challenge image HERE on the Embellish Magazine Blog. I kept it pretty simple with the hearts poking through in the printed digi paper from the Mia paper pack (Designer Digitals). I used a textured black CS background and added a strip of pink pom-pom fringe (love how that looks!). The "be mine" sentiment, from the new Heart's Desire set from Verve, was stamped on black CS in Versamark ink and heat embossed with detail white EP. I also used my Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder to dry emboss the white cardstock for some added texture.
Next up is this set of fun little "Love Notes", very Dawn McVey-ish, which is my "official" Sneak Peek project over on the Verve Blog today - be sure to stop by and see what the other Divas are sharing with this new set, Heart's Desire, - and leave a comment over there for a chance to win some Verve loot! You can read all the details about these cute little Love Notes over on today's post on the Verve Blog.
And finally, my favorite project of the day, is this fun photo keepsake that I created for one of the Release Week Challenges going on in the Verve Forum over at Splitcoast. This project is specifically for Michelle's chipboard challenge (using chipboard base as well as an added chipboard heart embellishment). I also incorporated one of my old favorites, Bountiful Backgrounds on this project!! I just love this photo of my 3-yr-old son, Dean taken last month and had been wanting to create a special keepsake with that photo as the focal image. I love how it turned out! Here are the rest of the ingredients:
Stamps: Heart's Desire, Bountiful Backgrounds (Verve)
Paper: printed digi paper from Cloud 9 by Kristin Cronin-Barrow (Sweet Shoppe); HP Semi-Gloss photo paper
Ink: Real Red (SU); Fresh Snow (PTI)
Accessories: On Board Heart Book, Chipboard heart shape, ribbon (SU); heart ghost shape (Heidi Swapp); metal mesh (Making Memories); button (PTI); pom-pom fringe from local quilt store.
