from Diva Amber Hight:
The stamps being released this month are nothing short of exquisite! I think we can all agree that Julee has that special touch and can turn anything into gold! I chose to work with the Medallion PJ because I saw a couple matching medallions on a much smaller scale in the new Wishful Elegance set. I thought it would make a really nice background so I created my own dp! I hope you're enjoying the peeks this week, much more goodness to come!
from Diva Amy Sheffer:
I've been a big fan of Verve's Plain Jane line ever since it was introduced, and I'm an even bigger fan now, because this month, in addition to two new sentiment stamps, for the first time, Verve is introducing two image stamps as well! I was especially drawn to the Medallion image. It is quintessential "Verve" -- sophisticated, elegant, timeless. Plus it's versatile enough to use as a focal point or as an accent or background. I paired it with some formal papers from the La Creme stack by Die Cuts With a View to make an anniversary card. Fancy paper piercing and dry embossing, black satin ribbon, bling, as well as two different decorative borders all help play up the elegance. To keep the focus on the medallion, I placed the sentiment on the inside, which is also decorated to coordinate with the card front. While this image works beautifully as a focal point, long-time Verve enthusiasts are sure to appreciate how well it goes with so many of Verve's previously released sets.

This month's Plain Janes are amazing! It's the return of the amazing 6 petal flower from Grateful Elegance!! My card uses the Mother's Day Plain Jane. The size of this stamp is big enough to be the focal point of the card. I love how the "O" in Mother is that gorgeous flower! I colored the flower with a copic marker and put a tiny rhinestone in the center. The other flowers are colored the same way and stamped from another set to be peeked soon!! The designer paper is Basic Grey Infuse and the lovely taupe silk ribbon is from Sharon Johnson's Ribbon store. Doesn't it make the most lovely bows??
from Diva Charmaine Ikach:
When I first saw the Plain Janes for this month's release, I chose my favorite right away! The Sunshine Plain Jane is so perfect for me and the "everyday" kind of cards I make. It might also be because "You Are My Sunshine" is an all time favorite song of mine and one that I sing to my kids regularly. :) Who wouldn't smile if they opened up a card with this sentiment? I also used the Wishful Elegance set to create the background for my card. You'll see peeks of that set tomorrow! :)
