Previewing Filigree Fantasy and Your Chance to Win!

It's the second day for you to take a peak at one of Verve Visual's May 16th releases. Today we're featuring Filigree Fantasy, an elegant set of 13 versatile stamps.


From Laurie Schmidlin:

I absolutely love the elegance and versatility of this set! This can be a stand alone set, or would be perfect paired with other Verve stamps!
I chose to showcase this beautiful set with a Joy Fold card. I love embossed copper, and wanted to pair it with this S.E.I. patterned paper...but my copper embossing powder was a little too "pink" looking to match it well. I decided it needed just a little more yellow undertones, so I mixed in a little bit of gold embossing powder (2/3 copper e.p. and 1 /3 gold e.p.) to achieve the color that I wanted. To hold the top flap closed, I used some Basic Grey magnetic snaps (I hid them under the patterned paper layers).










From Amy Sheffer:

Tuxedos, evening gowns, and wedding dresses. Those were my first thoughts when I saw the elegant images in Filigree Fantasy. I love how easily these images can either be combined and repeated to create beautiful scrollwork backgrounds, or used individually, as I've done here. I started this wedding card with a single filigree image stamped in black. The secondary ring around the main image is done with the word "Love" from Wonderful Wishes Remixed. Several scalloped layers and lots of sparkle all combine to create an elegant medallion focal point. I've featured it against a backdrop of rich texture and lots of dimension to finish off this "black-tie" look.

From Bethany Paull:

I wanted to use some deeper colors with these great flourishes, so I started with olive, navy, mustard and ruby red. I stamped the center flourish first, then turned it 90 degrees to stamp the outer images. The sentiment is also included in the set. Yay! You're going to love all the different styles you can accomplish with Filigree Fantasy.

  6. I have many favorites but one scripture that I love is from Jeremiah 29:11: "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. These are such encouraging words when life gets laden and weary. Cheryl

    ReplyDelete
  9. Totally agree with Jessi. "Sprinkle each day with kindness" is warm without being too mushy.

    ReplyDelete
  10. My favorite quote is by the controversial author Henry Miller: The aim of life is to live, and to live is to be aware - joyously, drunkenly, serenely, divinely aware. I am sooooooo excited for this set; it looks like it's right up my alley! :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. What a talented bunch of design team. Love their creations!

    Here is my favorite "The Secret to having it all is believing that you already do..."

  40. Crafty Math ChickMay 14, 2008 at 11:06 AM

    I have always liked "Warmest Thanks" - I frequently have manythank you notes to write and I find that sentiments tend to be the main focus with thank you cards. I think this one is simple and elegant.

    Can't wait until Friday! :)

    ~Meredith

  41. My favorite sentiment currently is a simply Hi or Hello, and hten there is "Bloom Where you are planted". These sets look great.

  49. Beautiful stamps!

    One of my favourite quotes is:

    "Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body." ~ Elizabeth Stone

    I never really understood what it meant, until I had a child of my own :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. My all time fave: Henry Ford's "Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you're right." Not necessarily a great card sentiment, but this is what I try to instill in my kids. Love those flourishes, can't wait to see the whole set!

    ReplyDelete
  51. So many wonderful quotes! My favorite quote...

    "God provides abundantely when you're in a state of gratefulness."

    ReplyDelete
  52. beautiful new set! I like the sentiment "I'm praying for you" that is in the serenity set. I think this is great to let someone know that they are in your thoughts and prayers and is different than using "thinking of you"

    ReplyDelete
  53. My favorite Verve sentiment would be "My life is richly blessed by you". But another favorite of mine is "I'm too blessed to be stressed" which stops to remind me that I have so much in life to be thankful for even during trying times. Also, love the awesome samples from the Design Team!!

  54. Melissa D. (SCS honeybee7896)May 14, 2008 at 2:09 PM

    Some of my favorite quotes are from Helen Keller:

  59. I love to stamp Bible verses in my cards. My favorite would have to be John 3:16. Thanks so much for the chance!
    Michelle Adams

    ReplyDelete
  60. Two of my favorite Bible verses are Romans 8:38-39. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

    Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

    There are other quotes and verses that are meaningful to me, but I can't remember the exact quote right now.

    Love the new stamps. Can't wait to buy some.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I love the sentiment on the Father's Day set the best. It is so hard to find good quotes in stamps for dads and I think you hit this one out of the park!! Love it! (the serenity prayer design is awesome too.)
    Thanks a bunch!

  62. I think I'm going to love this new set. I love the name already. One of my favorite sentiments is "Keep your head and your heart in the right direction so you'll never have to worry about your feet". If only we could always follow that rule.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  72. My favorite is one that I have on a chalk board on my kitchen counter. I have five girls and it is something that I have to remind them of often. "If you want to be happy, be." I know it that can be deep, but it is true... we make the choice.

    Love the samples.... Love your blog.

    Don't worry, be happy! It was played over and over and over the first weekend I was a freshman at college. Brings back many memories, but it's a great quote to live by. All things seem better when you are happy and smiling.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Hmmm, I can't really think of a favorite quote or saying. I just like to use whatever seems to "fit" the card I'm working on at the time.

    ReplyDelete
  75. There's an Einstein quote that I love: "Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted."

    I use it most often in birthday cards for those who are dreading the big number. :)

  81. My all-time favorite quote:

    ReplyDelete
  82. favorite saying not sure on that one, my husband would say, that I say "I'm Awesome" alot lol. But lately [since I started home schooling a few weeks ago} I have been telling my children you can't have success without a little bit of failure & to learn from your mistakes.
    I tell myself when I am shopping and nothing is fitting right for whatever reason, extra bloated or muffin top shows too much, to skip the jeans and head right to the shoes. They always fit perfect and they can totally make your outfit lol
    I rambled sorry >"<

    ReplyDelete
  90. This is a cheesy one, but I adopted it as my mantra this year. "Don't sweat the small stuff." Not pretty like your quotes, but it helps me get through my days! :)

    ReplyDelete
  91. I think the reason I fell in love with Verve stamps is the sentiments! They are all so awesome, and you always make sure there is a variety to choose from in each set to fit the recipient!! My favourite is the one from Father Figure "There are so many words that define you. You're a man of integrity, a role model, provider, protector, teacher and friend" THANKS JULEE!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  92. I like sayings that are uplifting and encouraging, like "You are destined for Greatness", "Follow your dreams", etc. One saying I really like that I've never seen on any stamp is...
    "Memory is the one gift of God, that death cannot destroy." I don't know who wrote it or said it, but I put it in a lot of sympathy cards.

    ReplyDelete
  93. I am a big fan of Emerson - "Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail." Love the new stamps! ~chris

  101. May is my favorite month because all of the flowers are blooming. I absolutely love flowers. They just make me smile every time I see them.

    ReplyDelete
  102. My favorite set, by far is "Great Expectations." The sentiments can be used for so many occasions. I love what I'm seeing so far of the new sets too, so my 'favorite set' may be different after seeing the entire set!

    ReplyDelete
  103. "Forgive and Forget" ~ no one's perfect and life is too short to hold grudges, judgements, or negative thoughts of any kind! Was it Lilly Tomlin the the other day quoted on AOL as saying - "While your holding a grudge against someone else, they could likely be out dancing!" ??

    ReplyDelete
  104. I keep this quote on my desk. When I found it, I understood why I feel so much joy from doing unexpected nice things for others...especially strangers.
    The quote is "Life is measured by the joy one brings to others."
    Elizabeth Bead Diva

    ReplyDelete
  105. My current favorite quote is actually from a stamp set I own~"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, its about learning to dance in the rain." That puts a new perspective on things for me, a my family is going through some storms right now. Kris

    ReplyDelete
  106. This is a tough one. I think the motto that comes up in my life the most (and that I remind myself with the most) is "Be thankful for the little things"

    ReplyDelete
  107. I use just plain old words like happy birthday and thank you. I guess I'm just not a "quote or motto" kind of girl.

    ReplyDelete
  108. My favorite saying is "This too shall pass". I've been going through a lot lately and when I think of this quote it helps put things into perspective.

    ReplyDelete
  109. This is a favorite quote of mine because my grandmother always used to say it. She thought it was so funny! It reminds me to relax, and it always makes me smile.

    "How beautiful it is to do nothing and rest afterwards."

  113. I absolutely love this new set! Even if I don't win it, I'll get it! I'm truly in love with the Thankful Blossoms set too. ~Christy

    ReplyDelete
  114. I love all the great quotes, and sayings found in the Great Expections set...I also love the "Your Amazing" from I think Thankful Blossoms. Outside of verve stamps...I think my current fave saying is from the movie "The Wedding Date" and he says "I think I'd miss you even if we'd never met," I don't know why but I love that!

  121. I love this new set. It is a fantasy. My favorite motto is my To Kill a Mockingbird...always do the right thing no matter what the cost. It is my favorite novel and something I tried to teach both my children and my students.

  124. My favourite verse is from Matthew 6:33-34 which reads: But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

    This verse has gotten me through some very difficult times and it's one I TRY to live by!! I'm a worrier, in case you hadn't guessed!!!
