Well, here we are - the final day of Sneak Peeks before the big Verve Release Party tomorrow night! Today the Divas are sharing samples using the new set Great Friend - a set of 12 absolutely AMAZING stamps that you are going to love!! There are 6 flowers in 3 sizes, perfect for layering, in both solid and outline stamps, some leafy goodness and a few fabulous sentiments that you'll definitely be seeing A LOT of around my blog in the future!!
I went with a sort of "mod" look for my sample card today...
I layered the 3 sizes of the outline flower stamped in Versamark ink on Real Red, clear embossed and then cut out with my hobby knife. Of course, you'll note my standard Kraft with a bit of black and some retired Scenic Route DP. I added something totally new for me on this card - those swirly black jewel things. I had a little trouble getting them to go exactly where I wanted and I had to cut off one smaller swirl altogether to get it to fit on my vertical card (and it's not really oriented exactly like I wanted - I wanted it at a little more of an angle, but I guess those things take a little practice?) - but they were definitely just the right touch for this otherwise clean and simple card. I also added several smaller jewels to the flower center on top of the stamens (is that what they are? I don't know. I'm not a botanist.) then added the "Just Because" sentiment and rounded one corner of the main matted panel and it was done!
