Today we're sharing our first projects featuring the Beautiful Things stamp set, Beautiful Flowers Die Set and the Stitched Pennants Die Set. Check out the Verve Blog post today for the full product reveals and a little bit about our fabulous Guest Divas, Lori Craig and Laura Jane!
I started the card by heat embossing the flowers from Beautiful Things in white on crumb cake and coloring with prismacolor pencils in blues. My boys were fascinated to watch the blending of colors, so it was fun for the whole family! Next I die cut them with the coordinating Beautiful Flowers Die Set (with Trevor's help cranking the Hello Kitty Big Shot handle, of course!).
For the sentiment tag, I cut both pennants from the Stitched Pennants Die Set in crumb cake, then added a little colored pencil border to each die, going just to the stitched line. I embossed the birthday sentiment in white, then layered them together and tucked in under my flowers.
The beautiful is also part of the Beautiful Flowers Die Set and here I cut it from white fun foam for some thickness and a layer of crumb cake for a bit of shadow. The leaves are from the same die set, cut from crumb cake and tucked in to fill out the layout. I finished with a couple fun neutral papers, aged with a bit of antique linen distress ink and tied a big twine bow.
Okay, that's all from me today. Thanks so much for stopping by!
