I was so excited to get my new Verve Stamps from Julee this week! I was so fortunate to have won the Mojo Monday contest at the beginning of the month and recieved some Verve Stamps for free.Thank you, Julee! I couldn't stop there, I had to pick up a few more that I was loving! So...let's just say I have quite a few images to play with in the next few weeks! You can check out all of the Verve stamps here: http://shopverve.com/ Julee has some fabulous stamp sets! I played along in today's LSC over at SCS. The challenge was to use black as our card base. I love using black as my base, but I will admit that it has been a while.
I started out using Verve's set called "Snowflake Splendor". I love this set because it has Christmas sentiments, but also some others just relating to snowflakes. It definitely makes the set more versatile. I thought this would be a fun thinking of you card that you could send anytime during the winter months. I also paired it with Muirfield DSP and Ski Slope DSP. I didn't want it to look Christmasy at all, so I just used Baja Breeze, White and Black. I added a bit of bling and of course a little *frosting* of chunky essentials glitter.
On another note...guess what is on it's way to my house as we speak? Yes! My new SU! goodies! I have some visitors coming at 11:00 and that is usually when Mr. Brown makes his appearance, so I will have to wait to tear into it after they leave! LOL! I don't want to scare my guests with my frenzy! LOL! Thanks for fluttering by!
