New Verve Valentine

Hi friends!  Welcome to February!  Today Verve is releasing a brand new set and ribbon collection! While I intended for this set to be a much earlier release, a busy life, sickness and manufacturing delays have me feeling blessed that the set has actually made it here.  Since these stamps are hot off the presses, our normal release hop is going to be a post-release hop on Tuesday, February 4 to share ideas with More than Love and the Pastel Polka Ribbon Collection.


I do have a card to share with you today using More than Love, though!  And you can see another sample over on the Verve Blog along with a little more info on our new release.


The layout for this card is this week's Viva la Verve January Week 5 sketch, converted to a 3.5" x 5.5" card because I'm kind of loving that size lately!  For the bottom layer, I stamped the smaller heart image from More than Love in crumb cake randomly across the panel.  Next I stamped the big striped heart image in wild wasabi and cut with the coordinating Wavy Hearts Die Set.  The circle in this panel was screaming rosette to me, so I pulled out some pink polka dot paper and a rosette die and got to work on that, then made the valentine's tag to tuck under it.

The smaller hearts are cut with the Heart Quartet Die and then stamped with the smaller heart image from More than Love.  The stamped image is slightly larger than the second largest heart in the die (the bottom green heart shows how the stamped brown image is slightly larger than the cut out green heart that's layered on top of it), which means you can stamp over it and get edge to edge coverage on your die cut.  You can also do the same with the smaller hearts in the die for an array of polka dot hearts!   After that, it was just deciding on some green ribbon down the side and adding a touch of bling to finish things off.
