Verve Contest Card!!


Have you been over to Julee's blog?? Actually the Verve Visual blog has all the details......there's a contest going on!!! And I KNOW how you all love contests!! There are several prizes too, so hop on over and check it out!!!

This is one of the cards I have entered into the contest, which is to make a card that features some of the Verve Visual stamps!! This was my first time playing with my new Fancy Florals set and I just wanna tell you that these are high quality unmounted rubber!! They were awesome to play with!!

Now you will notice that these are a little different than my regular style but every once in a while I like to veer away from the everyday and try something new!! I really like the way that these stamps go together and you can do lots of two-step stampin' with them! You get 28 stamps in all different sizes and it includes 4 sentiments in beautiful fonts!!

Anyway, I pulled out some Perhaps Basic Grey papers and decided to also use Julee's sketch from last week. I really like the colour combo and also used some Rose Red and River Rock SU cardstocks. I cuttlebugged the one layer, stamped over the second layer in River Rock and sponged everything! For my corner pieces, I just used my Scalloped Square punch and punched out the four corners of a piece of River Rock cardstock and attached them with some Rose Red eyelets! For the main image I stamped both the solid and the outlined largest images in River Rock in opposite directions, instead of how you would normally stamp them one on top of the other. Then I stamped each of the medium outlined and solid stamps on a separate piece of whisper white and cut them out, then layered them on top of the main piece. I then took the littlest outline stamp and stamped the corners in River Rock. I matted everything and added the lovely sentiment with more eyelets and added some stitched grosgrain ribbon! There are SO many layers to this card and Emileigh said that it's so heavy, she can't believe it can stand up!!

So here's another challenge for ya!!! Try something different today.....step outside your comfort zone and see what you can create!! And hey, Julee has another sketch for this week!! Check it out!!

I see what you mean about the layers! As usual -- the "color sense" on this card is wonderful!
Beautiful work.
