I Finally Got My Verve On!


Hello there! I hope you all had a great weekend, and I hope all of you mothers had a fantastic Mother's Day! It's been a few days since I posted -- our Internet has been on and off (actually, more off than on), and it was impossible to post anything yesterday! I'm not having much luck today, either -- hopefully everything will stay functional until this post is finished! I'll make it quick...

I have been a stalker of Julee Tilman's blog for a while, and I have had many Verve Visual sets on my wish list -- well, I finally took the plunge! I'm glad I did, too -- the stamp designs are beautiful, and they stamp so well!! Anyway, I received my first sets yesterday and went immediately to Julee's Mojo Monday Sketch for inspiration. I cut apart the sentiment to create the tabs called for in the sketch, and I sponged and stitched around the image panel. Other than that, it's pretty simple!

I have some other Verve sets waiting for some ink -- I'd better get busy! Thanks so much for stopping by -- have a great day!! :)

Stamp set by Verve Visual; all other products Stampin' Up!
Stamps: Serenity (Verve Visual) Ink: Soft Sky, Chocolate Chip Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White Paper: Afternoon Tea Other: Vintage Brads, Choc Chip 7/8" grosgrain, Soft Sky stitched grosgrain, sponge, dimensionals

This is just so beautiful! I love the layered ribbons, the colors and the way you split the sentiment. Thanks for playing! :)
