August Release Project Parade ~ Day 12!!!


Happy Thursday!!! Today is my day, Lynda, to show you my project for Verve's August stamp release. I have decided that I don't like going toward the end of the parade! OH MY GOSH, seeing all the AMAZING project's the Diva's have made so far has put the pressure on to come up with something fantastic and I don't do well under pressure!!! LOLOL!!!

As you probably know by now, the theme this month is "Something Old, Something New". I had a hard time deciding WHICH awesome Verve sets to use!! When cleaning my craft room the other day, I ran across a scrap of old Cosmo Cricket holiday paper and knew I wanted to use that piece on my card. My layout STARTED using this week's Mojo Monday sketch but as I went along.....it really didn't look like the sketch at all!!! LOLOL!!!

The base of this card is Crumb Cake with a layer of Vintage Cream and finally, the darling Cosmo DP on top and Crumb Cake CS on the bottom. The bottom panel was embossed with my Quickutz diamond embossing folder and sponged with Antique Linen ink.

The sentiment, stamped using Vintage Cream, and the tree, stamped using Crumb Cake ink and Artichoke marker, are both from the O Christmas Tree set. The beautiful doves from the BRAND NEW Love Story set were stamped using Vintage Cream and heat embossed using off white embossing powder. The image was then cut out using my Spellbinders Labels Nine, sponge with Antique Linen ink and then matted the image with a Vintage Cream decorative mat.

The tree was accented with white Sparkly Fluff using my Quickie glue pen. Here is a closer look~
The final step was to add the pearl Zva flourishes.

Are you ready to play along? Here's all the details about how you can and win some VERVE:

1. Play along with us and link up your new SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW creation (posted August 25th or later) to the linky widget on the DAY 1 PARADE POST before midnight on Wednesday, September 15th. One lucky stamper will win a $30.00 gift certificate to the Verve Store.

  17. Lynda-
    This is goregous, absolutely goregous. Being close to the end is not always a bad thing, especially in your case because this card is very elegant.
