verve stamps may new release hop


I could not be happier about this sweet little verve stamp set and die that julee has created. You can see another card peek here. I have played along with the fusion challenge, a perfect set for the inspiration, link below. I have watercolored the background using lots of rainbow colors and then I heat embossed the butterflies in black for an extra pop and added a clear gem. This is also a 4bar sized card, the instructions for making it are as follows.....Cut a piece of 8 1/2 x 11 card stock to 3 1/2 x 9 3/4 and then score on the long side at 4 7/8...I like the way this size stands for a darlin flip up card. You should have come to me from the amazing marisa's blog. The next stop on the hop is the verve store to treat yourself to this stamp and die set and perhaps a few other goodies...happy shopping! 

fusion - inspiration/musical butterfly



for this card, I wanted it to be more fun and whimsical. I adore this sentiment "amazing grace, how sweet the sound"..all that sweetness called for polka dots and gold and aqua stars! I hope you find this stamp set and die something you can't live without! The hop list and more links are below.
