Verve New Relase Spotlight: Text Objects


It's Day Two of Verve's new release spotlights. The new sets will be available in the store tonight immediately following our Release Party in the Verve Forum. Stop by the party and visit a while - anytime between 9 and 11 EST! You won't find a friendlier bunch of stamp enthusiasts!

Today we're featuring a fun, unique and highly versatile set called Text Objects. This set is filled with  a wide variety of large sentiments that are positively gorgeous on their own. Then there are images that compliment the quotes beautifully. And last, here's the unique part, there are also background stamps with teeny, tiny text that coordinates with the larger quote stamps.

For my peek card, I've created a scene using some of the Text Objects elements, along with the Wordy Birds pair from yesterday's peeks. I've stamped the green rolling hill with one of the text background stamps.



Then I've pulled in a larger sentiment stamp for the banner. The stamp comes as the full word "LOVE" in a beautiful, timeless, classy, all-cap font. I just stamped each letter individually in order to make the banner.

 
Be sure to see the rest of today's spotlights:
