VERVE Peek: Floral Whimsy

Today starts the sneak peeks of the new sets over on the Verve Blog! Hooray, it's such an exciting week! Not only are we releasing four new sets on Friday, but we're also announcing the newest addition to our Design Team. Woohoo! Another Verve Diva that I know y'all are gonna love! So today's preview set is called Floral Whimsy and it's a set of 29 stamps with all sorts of floral possibilities, and a few fabulous quotes thrown in for fun.

This is the Mother's Day card I made for my MIL this year. For my main image I started by inking the solid round vase in Pixie Pink and then rolling the edges in Purely Pomegranate to give a shadowed effect. I absolutely love how this turned out. Next I stamped one of the smaller greenery stamps in Old Olive and then finished off each blade with one of the flowers in Purely Pomegranate. Next I colored each flower in with a pink Copic marker and then shaded around the finished image with a light gray marker. The panel is matted on Purely Pomegranate and then on Old Olive.

I knew for my layout that I wanted to use a circle for the sentiment panel, but the Happy Mother's Day stamps from Happy Thoughts just didn't fit the size of punch I wanted to use. So I started looking through my stash and realized that I could use the Happy Father's Day sentiment from the Father Figure set to extend the Happy Thoughts set. So I inked up just the Happy from Happy Father's Day! and then inked just the Mother's from the Mother's Day stamp from the Happy Thoughts set and then inked just the Day! from the same Father's Day stamp. I love that it was all able to fit on a 1 1/2" circle, and since the stamps are clear it was easy as pie to line them up. I finished off with one more flower on the sentiment panel and then added a tiny little pink rhinestone to the center.

The paper is from the White-Out collection from We R Memory Keepers. I saw it at the LSS the other day and went a *little* crazy. In my defense, I had a full punch card, so I couldn't waste my discount, could I? LOL! I'm sure you'll be seeing a lot more of this paper on the ole blog, here, because I am in paper love! ;)

So what do you think of the new set? Want to see more? Well skedaddle on over to the Verve Blog to see the eye candy the design team has for you using this set. And if you read all the way to the end, you just might find out how you could win this set for your very own! :)
