Joy to the World!

Joy to the World! It's finally release day! There are so many exciting things going on at Verve today. Seasonal Circles and Winter Wonder are now on sale at the Verve Store. The Verve Gallery has been updated with fabulous projects from the Design Team. And we've added a fabulous new design team member... Charmaine Ikach! Woohoo! Oh, and check out the Verve Blog for some awesome Guest Designer projects by Taylor Van Bruggen! Are you excited? :)

Today's card uses images from Seasonal Circles and the Joy to the World sentiment from Winter Wonder. I started by stamping the snowflake circle on Mellow Moss with Handsome Hunter. Next I punched it out with my Mega (ETA: Oops, I mean Extra Jumbo - the blue one) scallop circle punch and matted on a Handsome Hunter Giga (ETA: Oops, I mean Mega - the pink one) scallop circle punch. Next I punched the center out with a 1" circle punch and stamped the flower in Ruby Red on Pearlized Cream. I added a Red Sheer Gold Edged Bow to make it look like a wreath and popped it up on foam tape. The paper is from the Cosmo Cricket Be Good line and is stitched together with a zigzag stitch on my Janome Sew Mini. The sentiment is punched out with the small SU oval punch and layered on the large SU oval punch.

  9. Oh my Gosh your blog is AWESOME! I have been scrap booking for almost 12 years and I can't make cards as beautiful as you! I am definitely going to start visiting Verve more often and working on some cards myself! You do fantastic work as well as your DT and I love it! Your stamps are awesome too but until I go back to work I will have to wait on buying some as funds are short. Love your cards!!!!
