Ooo la la!! There are some Vervalicious new sets coming this Friday, and the peeks have officially begun over on the Verve Stamps blog. That means both some great eye candy each day for the rest of the week AND chances to win free stamps, so be sure to check it out!
Today's featured stamp set is Kindred Spirits, and it is a real beauty, I tell ya. I've long been partial to the fleur-de-lis image, so this set is right up my alley! For today's card, I went a little clean-and-simple, pairing up an image and sentiment from Kindred Spirits with some of the beautiful patterns from Cosmo Cricket's Everafter collection. Tres jolie! I inked all the edges with Antique Linen distress ink to add to the aged look the paper already has. I also added a little depth to the fleur-de-lis cluster with a darker gray Prismacolor pencil, then finished the card off with some decorative borders and some machine stitching.
When can YOU get your hands on this set? This Friday night! The festivities begin with a Release Party beginning at 9 pm in the Verve Stamps forum on SCS. Hope you can join us!
