Fairy Tales Preview


Happy Sunday! Hope y'all are having a great weekend. Things around here are all abuzz, with the Verve release coming up in just a few short days. The Verve Divas are previewing one of the August 13 releases, a set called Fairy Tales, today on the Verve Blog, so I stole a pocket of time this morning to duck into my studio and make a preview card with this set. The layout uses Anni-VERVE-sary Sketch #10.

I started knowing I wanted to use the big swirly circle frame to make my own patterned paper, so I stamped it with Versafine Onyx Black all over a piec of white cardstock. Next I pulled in some red accents by stamping one of the flourishes in each of the circles with Versafine Crimson Red. Next I used a pinstrip paper from the All Dressed up DCWV paper pack for the bottom half of the card background. A strip of white cardstock with a black mat became my divider and then I took three rectangles of Riding Hood Red and stamped the flourish about 6 times on each piece to make a nice background. For the image panel I stamped one of my favorite sentiments from this set...Life is Beautiful in black and then stamped th two mirror image flourishes in Crimson Red for a little accent.

To complete the card I punched a 1" circle of Riding Hood Red and a 1.25" circle of black, matted them together and cut in half to place on opposite corners of the card. I added some Liquid pearls all around the outer edge of the half circles. In the top circle I punched a horizontal slot and added a cream taffeta knotted bow and in the bottom half circle, I stamped one of the flourishes.

Okay, that's it for today. Remember Mojo Monday has been postponed for another week, in lieu of the daily Anni-VERVE-sary sketches. There's a link to a PDF of all the Anni-VERVE-sary sketches in -->this thread<--.
