Introducing Asian Flair and Your Chance to Win

Here at Verve, we're starting another round of previews leading up to our June 25th release day. I am so excited to introduce to you Asian Flair. This set of 13 sentiments, graphics and images is so stylish and sophisticated. You're going to love it! After checking out these samples, read on to see how you could be the lucky winner of this set.

From Susan:
Hey everyone! I am so loving the new Asian Flair stamp set! It's very versatile and comes with a fabulous array of images, some of which can be used multiple ways (not just Asian). I chose to use the little leaves and create a "forest" of bamboo. I simply drew sweeping lines with a couple different colors of Copic markers for a little depth across the white panel and added the little "joint" lines with a Prismacolor marker. I then stamped the leaf image in various shades of green to make the bamboo. I also decided I wanted to try out the Cracked Glass technique having NEVER done it before (you see, I'm not much of a technique person--I just make a big mess), and after a small snag of accidentally rubbing my bounce sheet all over the image (normally done in regular embossing when you don't want the extra powder to stick. In this case you want ALL the powder to stick!--oopsie!), I finally got it to work! I added the simple hemp cording and sentiment on white for some pop with a little round Asian accent and some gold brads. Now all that's missing is Kung Fu Panda!!

From Laurie:
Just when I thought I had a favorite Verve set...Julee comes up with something even better! I love this Asian Flair set! It has such unique design elements...all done with Verve style! And, of course there are the incredible sentiments/quotes that have become such a Verve trademark!

I created a tall card (3 1/8" x 6 1/2") with the emphasis on the quote by Thoreau. I popped up the butterflies for a little added dimension. I didn't have the right color of ribbon, so I dyed some Ivory taffeta ribbon with my Olive Copic marker.

Recipe
Stamps: Asian Flair Paper: Pearlized Ivory c.s., Night of Navy c.s. (Stampin' Up!), Blue Awning patterned paper (K & Co) Ink: Night of Navy craft ink, Old Olive (Stampin' Up!), Antique Linen Distress Ink Accessories: Clear detail e.p., Tag dies (Spellbinders), Ivory taffeta ribbon, Olive Copic marker, Hemp, Decorative brad, Paper piercer


From Bethany:
I went with a clean, bold style for this Asian Flair design. It's just what comes to mind for me. I guess you could call this an overlapping gate fold style. One front panel is slightly larger so the opening is off-center.

Stamps: Asian Flair (Verve Visual)Paper: basic black, whisper white, real red (Stampin' Up!)Ink: basic black, real red (SU!)Accessories: clear bubble (JoAnn Scrap Essentials); black (SU!); Swiss dots embossing folder (Cuttlebug); circle dies (Nestabilities)











From Natasha:
Here’s a card from Natasha Trupp…we liked her creations so much last month that we asked her to stay on as our guest for another release. Stay tuned to see who our other guests are!


Stamps: Asian Flair, Here for You (Verve Visual)

  143. The asian cards I have done feature
    red, black and gold or green, black and orange. I use orange on my koi fish.

  144. I do think that Red, Gold and Black tend to be more asian , But I think anything as long as Red is the main color it would do ,
    Whatever the colors are the card samples are just awesome ,I the first card with the tech. done on it it looks really sharp.The second one reminds me of those asian screens, and the last is like the asian hut you would eat dinner in ( cannot think of the name of it ,complete blank) the walls. Great work girls,

  146. Everyone's cards are sooo gorgeous. I can't believe this set. Julee... if I could only buy ONE stamp set for the rest of the year... I would jump on this one! Sooooooo cool.

    I would have to say that I first think of red and white... but actually I'm thinking cherry blossom pink, white, and grey would make a lovely asian combo... or even vanilla, celery, and dark green.

    Thanks for the chance to win such a beautiful set!

  149. I, too, think of red and black, but I have a beautiful satin robe from China that is blue and gold with tiny accents of pink, so I should try that, too! I love Laurie's card color combo. Can't wait to see the entire stamp set.

  157. While in Calgary, Alberta, my daughter and I visited a lovely sushi restaurant and the color scheme in the restaurant was very dark cherry red/brown furniture with cream and teal accents....not your typical asian colors but the effect was stunning!

    ReplyDelete
  158. I bought some gorgeous Asian paper (can't remember what it's called) that I've been hoarding for quite some time. The colors - a deep darker blue, sky blue, red-orange, and gold on one. And on another - white, a soft sky blue, olive green, rust and gold. Stunning!

    ReplyDelete
  159. I would have to say red black and gold would be my guess also....

    ReplyDelete
  160. What comes to mind is a 'bamboo' colour and celery green. Of course, all the other mentions of red, black and gold fit into an Asian style also!!

    ReplyDelete
  161. These are all gorgeous cards. True works of art, ready to be framed!

    ReplyDelete

  164. I think of red,jade,and black with gold accents. Think origami paper and it almost always has gold running through it. I also think of bamboo, soft jade, and tan/light brown for a softer feel. Thanks for the chance to win some wonderful stamps.

    ReplyDelete
  165. When I think Asian, I think Red Gold and Black, or bright blue and ivory.

    ReplyDelete
  166. I always reach for Red, Black and Gold. I was going for an asian theme in my living room at one point. Had nice lion's gold on the wall, VIVID red sofa, loveseat and Chaise and the accents were all black and bamboo. was actually really nice looking.

    Can't wait to see this full set.

    Thanks,

  170. My favorite Asian-color combination is usually red, gold, and black plus ivory.....but also pink, black, and gold. MollyK. at rom-obo@hotmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  171. These are sooo pretty!
    When I've done Asian themes I've used yellow with black quite a bit, sometimes throwing in some red. But doing flowers with Asian I use SU's Always Artichoke, Regal Rose and So Saffron.

  172. Black, red and gold! Just a lovely color combo...

    ReplyDelete
  173. Red, black, and gold always come to mind first, but close behind are yellows and pale greens with black.

    ReplyDelete
  174. I would definately say white and red with some black. I love the fact that asian brides wear red dresses, so cool!

    ReplyDelete
  175. Stunning cards everyone!
    I think the typical colours using to denote Asian flair, would have to be gold, red and black. A gorgeous combo indeed!

    ReplyDelete
  176. It would have to be red and black or turquoise and gold.

    ReplyDelete
  177. The colors that pop in my head are gold, black, white, and red/pink.

    ReplyDelete
  178. Well I would have to say Red Gold and Black they just seem to be the tradional colors used in representing the Asian theme. Thanks for the chance to win!

  182. When I think Asian, I always think Hello Kitty. So, I'm going with pinks, reds and whites. :)

    ReplyDelete

  185. Red, black and gold. Great creations here!

    ReplyDelete
  186. Yeah, before reading any of the comments my first thought would be red, black and gold. But on thinking about a recent trip to Japan purples and teal jump to mind as well. Actually anything colorful in a watercolor sort of way:)

    ReplyDelete
  187. Looking at a lot of the color combo's mentioned above I guess I'm a little out of the box... when I think of asian colors I think of musky blues and purples with tinges of green swirled in.

    ReplyDelete
  188. The only color combo that jumps into my head when anybody says "Asian" is red, black, and gold - very traditional!

    ReplyDelete
  189. What a great set!!!! The color that come to mind for me are bright colors like reds, orange, black, hot pink....

  190. I think Japanese blossoms when I think Asian. So the colors that I think of are black, pink, white and a touch of light green.

    ReplyDelete
  191. I'd have to say the first thing that comes to mind is the classic, black, red, cream & gold combo. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  192. Like many of the other comments I saw as I scrolled to the bottom... I think of red, black and gold when I think Asian.
    Living in the PNW, we have LOTS of Asian cuisine and almost every restaurant I've been in are decorated in this color scheme.

    ReplyDelete
  193. I agree with the majority. When I think Asian I think of bold red, black, white and an accent of gold. I've also seen an Asian inspired card done in gray and pink tones which was very pretty.
