New Stamps!

I have some new, gorgeous stamps from Verve Visual. I started both of these cards before I got sick this weekend, but took a few minutes last night to finish them up.

I stamped the cross on SU! Whisper White card stock and then stamped it again on Basic Grey's Perhaps DP. I outlined all the flourishes and swirls with a gold gel pen; it mixes with the black and looks so cool IRL! Hopefully the 2nd picture gives you a glimpse of all the sparkle!

The sentiment "Easter Blessings" is also from Verve's Everlasting Life stamp set. It's a beautiful stamp set with great images and sentiments; I'll be using this set for years to come!

The layout for both cards comes from Mojo Monday Week 77 challenge - I didn't follow the layout exactly, but pretty close.

The next card is much more whimsical with lots of flowers and butterflies. I used the same card stock colors and layout, but used Verve's Miracles Blossom stamp set.

The butterflies are from a Martha Stewart punch; it cuts one large butterfly & 2 small butterflies. I added liquid pearls to the center of each butterfly. All the flowers were paper pieced twice; the 2nd one mounted with dimensionals for lots of 3D effects.

Thanks for stopping by; it's great to see you! Hugs, ~M.
