Happy Wednesday to you! Sneak Peeks started yesterday over at the Verve Stamps Blog! Yep, it's release time again, and Julee has cooked up 7 Vervealicious new stamps for you! :-) Today, the highlight is on the new Blessed Christmas and Star of Wonder sets.
Here is the card I created using the new Star of Wonder set (I looooove this set!!)...
The thing that struck me the most about this set (aside from the gorgeous images and beautifully scripted sentiments) was the simplicity of the the gorgeous stars! Isn't it amazing that one image can speak so much? And honestly, the simpler I kept my card, the more impact the star image had. So that's what I did...kept it simple! Elegant simplicity that has enough impact to stand alone, and still speaks of the true meaning of Christmas. Well, I LOVE it!
I embossed the star using Copper e.p. directly onto patterned paper from the Winter's Wings collection by Webster's Pages), and then added a rhinestone in the center. I roughed up the edges a bit, did some stitching, added a tag, some ribbon, a charm, and a punched border. That's it! Very simple and limited layers - perfect for the busy Christmas season! :-)
Julee is giving away one of the Blessed Christmas and Star of Wonder sets! For all the details, check out the Verve Blog!
I hope you enjoy your day! ~Laurie
