Vintage Love

I am so excited to share a card with you using a soon-to-be-released Verve Visual stamp set. First off, let me say that all five, yes FIVE, sets are fabulous. They have been my favorite Verve stamps to date. Really easy to work with. You're going to love seeing them in all their glory on January 10.

Here, I used the set called Heart to Heart. The hearts in the set are made with such classic lines and this great swirl pattern that you can use them for just about any style. And this style? Can I call it a modern take on vintage?

I cropped down this piece of Daisy Bucket paper to fit a standard-sized vanilla card. Punch both the Daisy Bucket and the vanilla card with a corner rounder. Stamp the hearts on scrap vanilla card stock. Cut out and layer on with dimensionals. You will love how easy it is to stamp your sentiments, even directly on this lined paper, with Verve's new CLEAR stamps. And, I might add, they stamp beautifully. Clear and crisp the first time, both when I tried dye or hybrid inks. Accessorize, and you're done.

This set includes two heart images and a total of SEVEN sentiments. And these live up to the high standards Verve has set for sentiments. They're beautiful, both visually and in meaning.

Stay tuned every day through release date, January 10, for more sneak peeks from the design team.
