Button Best Day One Blog Hop

Hi friends!  It's release week at Verve and that means the Divas will be spotlighting new Verve products the rest of the week in a 4 day series of blog hops!  Hooray for new Verve!  Everything you see previewed this week will be available in the Verve online store on Friday, May 23.  And as with all of our blog hops, there are prizes to be won, so be sure to give a little shout out in the comments!  {grin}

Alrighy, I'm the first stop on the hop, so let's get this party started...


Today's featured set is called Button Best and while it has some beautiful floral images I'm sure to be showing off at a later date, today I wanted to feature this fun sentiment framed by a bunch of colorful stamped buttons from the set.  I started the card by stitching a frame on the inside of my sahara sand panel (it's actually covered up now, but it gave me the guide for placing the buttons).  Next I embossed the sentiment in white and then proceeded to stamp each of the 5 button images in the set on four different colors of cardstock (barely banana, crisp cantaloupe, peach parfait, coastal cabana) and then embossed in white.  I punched each button out with circle punches from my collection and then set to layering them around my stitched frame on varying dimensionals to give it character.  I did a little faux stitching around the edge with a paper piercer and white gel pen, then finished with some distressed edges.

So what do you think?  I'm kind of loving this color combo and how it pops against the sahara sand.  And I just love how the buttons turned out.  This is the exact card I had envisioned when I set out to design this set. So fun when it works out!

Okay, lots to see today, so I'll just send you off to the next stop on the hop... Charmaine.
