Saturday SMILES

Hi there!  Happy Saturday!  Last night I had a blast at our release party.  For once, I was ahead enough to actually get to chat for a bit instead of scrambling to finish the website at the last minute!  LOL  Anyhow, if you haven't heard, the new sets are available in the Verve store now.  Plus all of our new release stamps are 15% off through December 31!  No pack to buy, just a good old fashioned deal on the new stuff! {grin}

My card today features the Wild Flower plain jane.  This bold flower is just a bit on the wild side and I like it!  :)  When I first showed the image to Mark he thought it would be great for Christmas and well, I like the way he thinks, so I turned it into a Christmas thank you card, adding a portion of a sentiment from Amazing Wishes

I started by stamping the flower in real red on white cardstock four times.  Then I trimmed around three of the flowers and trimmed the inner portion of the fourth to pop up for some dimension.  The centers are glitzed up with some Stardust Stickles.  Then it was a matter of distressing some baja breeze, black and white papers with the Music Sheet Texture Fade folder and my new Heart Attack distressing tool.  I finished off with some black ribbon, a vintage brad, some little silver bells and some 2mm light sapphire rhinestones from Pizzazz Aplenty.

Okay, that's all from me today!  Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous weekend!

When I saw this card in the gallery last night I literally fell off my chair (well, not really, but you get the picture!) This is so GORGEOUS and today I am on the hunt for that Tim Holtz embossing folder! Gorgeous, Julee!!

Love this card- esp. the color combo, as I would never had thought to use that red with the light blue but it works beautifully! Enjoyed the Release Party last night and already have the new stamps ordered- can't wait to get them!

So pretty! I missed the release last night due to a dinner party my husband arranged for us to attend. I'll have to check out all the samples that I am sure are just amazing!
