Heart to Heart Spotlight #5- Verve Visual

Continuing with my goal of honoring the companies who graciously donated to the Heart to Heart Blog candy, today I am featuring VERVE VISUAL.

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.

Here is a better view of the sentiment stamped on the pail:

Thank you Julee / Verve Visual for your generous donation to the Heart to Heart Blog Candy. You are amazingly talented and have a big HEART too!
Thanks for stopping by!

What a cute pail!!!! How did you stamp on it? Did you roll your stamp a little? I have some white mailboxes from the Target $1 spot from last Feb. I bought like 20 mailboxes, LOL! I think I am going to stamp on them, thanks for the idea.

I love that bunny bucket! I also want to know how you stamped on it. Did you just hold the stamp (not on a block)?
