Verve Stamps Sneak Peek ~ Day 1

Good morning!!!  It is with great pleasure that I share a little sneak peek of a new Verve set available this Friday after the Release Party.  Julee has gone all out this time and I'm sooooo excited to help her and the Divas celebrate Verve's 3rd Anni-VERVE-sary as Guest Diva with Sony Christoph. It really has been a dream come true :)  Julee has created something extremely special with her company, not just fabulous stamps, but a fabulous community as well :)  This was the first card I made for the release.
It was not hard to come up with inspiration for a Love Story {insert heart here...lol}.  With our wedding still fresh in memory...and on a CD disk...I printed out one of our professional wedding photos.  I got the idea of printing out photos for cards from Kristina Werner.  She did one of her and her dad for Father's Day last year and I thought it was so unique and personal.  It could be a photo of anyone for any occassion :)  I just love this curly frame...it's perfect for this sentiment and for the many others in this set :) 
 

Want to see more?  The Divas have more samples of Love Story so check out
these blogs or head over to the Verve Blog.  And join us for the Release Party this Friday night...it's gonna be crazy fun!!!


What's in it?
Stamps: Verve Love Story
Ink: SU going gray, stazon black
Paper: PTI shimmer white, white, SU soft sky
Accessories: stitching, seam binding ribbon (Etsy), button (craft supply) floss, gemstones, cuttlebug ef (textile textures), printed photo
