Julee Tilman is the owner and illustrator of VERVE and she is also a FABULOUS designer. Her cards leave me speechless so (unfortunately) I spent more time second guessing my projects than actually designing them!
The first project is a card that features Abundant Blessings. I stamped the ferns and brown accents first on vanilla cardstock. I stamped the flower images each one time on white cardstock and colored them with Copics. Then, I applied a layer of Shimmerz Paints over the marker (I used Sunflower and Pumpkin Pie.) I also outlined the tag and the vanilla main piece with Sunflower Shimmerz to add some sparkle and color to the edges. I added some Olive Shimmerz to the greenery. I attached each layer of the flower with a dimensional--to give it a lot of depth. I curled the edges of the flower to make it look more realistic.
Finally, I added some crystal stickles to add even more shine. I completed the card by adding some raffia and matting the main panel on brown cardstock that I scored with my Scor-Pal. On the mustard layer I added some piercings.
Here is the flower close up:
You can see a bit more shimmer in this picture although it is much more sparkly in real life.
And here is a cute little project that features Some Bunny. I love this stamp! I thought this would make a perfect tag for this white pail I found at the dollar store (3 for $1--SCORE!) This would make an adorable shower favor (maybe I can convince my little sister to have another girl so I can make these!) or even a little lift for a friend.
I stamped the sentiment "Some bunny loves you" in black Staz On right onto the pail. Worked perfectly. I added a bit of ribbon and the candy and done! Easy to mass produce but sooo cute.
