Hi Everyone! Today is day 2 of the Looking for Love Challenges over on the Verve SCS Forum and I've got a fun sketch for you. My sneak peek is of a new mini set called Jeremiah 29:11 (original name, I know! LOL). It will be available on January 10. Be sure to check out the Verve Blog today for more sneaky peeks of this set and another mini set called Sweet Valentine.
Inspired by Jen Tapler to test out some digi papers, I printed some papers from the A Little Birdie collection by Sugarplum Paperie. I stamped the cross in Soft Sky directly on the printed paper, then stamped the Jeremiah 29:11 verse over it with A Muse black ink. The panel is cut with the notched Nestabilities Labels and matted on Kraft cardstock. I used a paper piercer to pierce some holes around the edges of the mat.
For the background I cut another piece of the A Little Birdie paper and used a Piercabilities Victorian Border to cut the decorative edge and then matted with Chocolate Chip. I added a cute little knotted bow of Kraft taffeta to the bottom and then added some rhinestones for accent at each of the points on the border.
For my final accent I used my brand new Martha Stewart Classic Butterfly punch on the digi paper and then lightly sponged the edges with Chocolate Chip. I painted on a mixture of glitter and diamond glaze, then finished off with a couple itty bitty pearls for the butterfly body.
For the inside of the card, I used the negative of the butterfly punch as a mask and sponged Soft Sky ink directly on white cardstock. I added a sentiment from Here For You that I thought paired well with the verse to make this an encouragement card for a friend.
This blog is for personal inspiration only and all projects are my original designs unless otherwise stated. I own Verve Stamps and have received products and materials to work with from several generous companies over the years. While I have received free products from these companies, I maintain the freedom as an independent designer to say what I truly think of their products. I will never recommend something that I don’t personally use and enjoy.
