Here it is, my first sneak peak of Verve Visual's upcoming stamp release Fancy Florals. It will be available for all of you hard core stalkers starting August 20th.
Yes, I know, there are no "florals" on this card. But these are some of the flower centers, and they just screamed snowflakes to me. Aren't the shapes so gorgeously modern? I stamped "Many Thanks", one of four sentiments in this huge set, with Night of Navy on Paper Accents pearlized white (light weight), then added my three sizes of snowflakes in Bashful Blue, Ballet Blue and Brilliance platinum. Then I used three sizes of the star burst stamp on the bashful blue border, again in Brilliance platinum.
That giant corner scroll is a chipboard knot by Maya Road. I smooshed it into the Brilliance platinum ink pad. This is a VERY easy way to cover your chipboard, but it takes a l-o-n-g time to dry, we're talking overnight. Then I just used the applicator tip of my Star Dust Stickles to haphazardly apply a thin coat to the chipboard. If you wanted it perfect, you could use a small brush. I finished with a bit of May Arts gold ribbon and three gold brads. So, with the Brilliance ink, the gold ribbon, and the pearlized paper, this card has some serious shimmer and shine going on.
By the way, this card is 5-1/2 inches square. And I use:
