Asian Flair



The new Asian Flair set from Verve Stamps** is among my favorite Verve sets ever -- I absolutely love it!! The images are so fresh and unique. The set has a wonderful Asian feel, but the images are by no means limited to Asian-theme cards, and the two sentiments are awesome (of course, it's Verve after all!). I cut the curved edge on my card using one of the ovals from the Creative Memories cutting system. After I got all my stamping done and the layout in place, I felt like the River Rock card base was looking a little plain, so I added some scoring (I used my Scor-Pal) to echo the lines in the medallion image. It kicks it up a notch without competing with the rest of the card. Instead of reaching for your paper piercer or Cuttlebug, try adding some creative scoring instead! I love my Scor-Pal!!

** Verve Visual is now Verve Stamps! A short while ago, Julee began clearing out her inventory of paper and embellishments in order to focus exclusively on STAMPS. To go along with the name change to Verve Stamps, both the store and blog have had a little makeover. Check them out and and be sure to tell Julee what you think of the new look! She's got so much good stuff in the works for Verve over the next few weeks and months -- I can't wait!!

Another thing I can't wait for is tomorrow's challenge over at Our Creative Corner. We have some really exciting news to announce along with tomorrow's fun challenge, so be sure to stop by tomorrow morning! There might be something in it for you (hint, hint)!

Have a great day!
