Before I get to today's card, a quick reminder that the January Fan Club gallery is now open to Fan Club members! This month, the dirty girls drew inspiration from our homes as we built a gallery called Making a House A Home. If you're an SCS Fan Club member, head on over there to see the gallery and to welcome in the two newest dirty girls. If you'd like more info on how you can join the Fan Club, click HERE. I'm sad to say this is my sixth, and last, month as a member of the Dirty Dozen. I have been so honored to be on this team, alongside so many stamping rockstars. The farewell is hard, but I'm also excited for whatever fun opportunities might come next!
In the frenzy of finishing up my projects, I neglected to post all of my samples from the most recent Verve release. I'll start with one of my favorites, a card that uses the newest Plain Jane, called Comfort. (Plain Janes are single sentiment stamps at a very wee little price of only $3 each). I'd be hard-pressed to tell you exactly what I like so much about this card - it just feels comfortable to me, like an old, worn quilt or something. The clear embossed floral image is from an older set called Serenity.
I've had requests to show the insides of my cards, so here's a look at this one. I usually keep the insides very simple, with just a few bits and pieces pulled in from the front. You might be able to see where I stamped the floral image from Serenity in VersaMark ink onto the bottom left of the large white panel. I love the super subtle watermark look. (I know it's really, really faint in the photo. It's much more noticeable in real life.)
Next is a project using Meditations. I made this as a full card, but the front could easily be turned into a piece of framed art instead.
Tomorrow, I'll have three Verve Valentine projects to share. See you then, and in the meantime, thanks for stopping by!
