Sage Accents

Hooray for Wednesday! Today the Divas are peeking a new set called Accent Notes over on the Verve blog, and it's in the same vein as the Thankful Accents set we released in November. You'll see some familiar elements, along with some great background builders, another fun circular frame and a few sweet sentiments.

Although I'm a huge COLLECTOR of patterned paper, my first love is creating my own DP with stamps, and I've been finding myself getting back to classic cardmaking lately with just stamps, cardstock, ink and a few beloved embellishments. So I started my card with a sage shadow panel and stamped one of the square pendants from Accent Notes in Sage Shadow all across the panel. Next I pulled out the flower from another set releasing later this week (Love's Flower) and stamped it in chocolate chip in the spaces between each pendant. Once that was finished, I sponged with chocolate chip ink, rounded two corners and matted with chocolate chip.

I thought this printed ribbon I got from Michael's went really well with the motif, so I tied it around the panels and then got to work on my stamped panel. {Okay, so it looks like my bow is having a bad hair day. It's like those driver's license pictures where you swear you're looking good and then they click the button and you're stuck with a Medusa mug shot for another 4 years!} LOL Anyhow, I stamped the circular frame in chocolate chip, then colored with a sage shadow marker and added some chocolate pearls for accent. The thinking of you sentiment is stamped in the center and then I layered on petite scallop circles in sage shadow and chocolate chip. To finish off, I tucked a little Making Memories Shimmer Chipboard Flourish under my circles to qualify for Michelle's Release Week challenge to use chipboard on a project.

  16. Too funny. I thought "bad hair day bow" was hilarious. Your card "peek" is gorgeous. Love the colour combination and the embellishments really finish the look.

  17. I totally hear you on the DP collection - mine is huge! But, every time I use a sheet I wonder whether I should try harder to make my own. Thanks for being such an inspiration!

  18. I LOVE classic stamping, and get frustrated sometimes when I go to a 'stamping' event where we cut, embellish and maybe stamp one image. And I love stamped backgrounds. Yours are gorgeous. Can't wait for the new release.
