Bundle of Joy - AVS Hop Day 9

Hi friends!  Happy Friday.  It's the final day of our Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops, which means our release party is tonight!  Come join us from 7-9pm Eastern!  The final set the Divas are spotlighting is a request from Jen del Muro for a set with all occasion sentiments using the fonts from Words of Wisdom.  It's called Treasured Words and well, I'll just let the Divas show you what it's all about!



My card is another CASS card.  It was totally CAS and then I had to add some liquid pearls... and embossing ... and ribbon and pretty soon it was still clean but only {sort of} simple! {grin}  It's so hard not to pile on all the fabulous embellishments that are just calling my name!  LOL  Anyhow, my idea for the card was mainly to just have fun playing around with the new dies.  I wanted to try the Arrow Die as an inner mat for the Pennant Trim Die.  It worked beautifully.  I just layered the arrows over the pennants, snipped off the ends and then used the leftover part of the arrows for an accent on the card.  How cute is that?  I cut the pennant trim down to just 6 pennants and then layered the Flourished Trim Die over it and added a bunch of silver liquid pearls to my die cuts.

The image and sentiment are both from the Treasured Words set.  The baby carriage is colored with Copics and punched out with 1-1/4" and 1-3/8" ircle punches, then layered onto Scalloped Flowers die cuts.  I finished off by embossing the polka dots on the card base and then adding a pool party seam binding bow up top.


I'm getting so EXCITED for tonight!  We'll be revealing all the sets in their full glory at our Release Party from 9-11PM Eastern. While you wait, you can take one last stroll through sneak peek land.Thanks so much for joining in our 5th Anni-VERVE-sary celebration the past couple weeks!

  7. I *love* the different way you've layered the dies. I like the layered Pennant Trim one, of course, but the layered flower one is wonderful! I'm always looking for an extra outside layer when I use my 1 1/4 & 1 3/8 punches!!
