Verve Sneak Peek Spotlight Hop ~ Day 3

Verve Anniversary photo VRDay3Anniv-1.jpg

Welcome to Day 3 of Verve's Sneak Peek Spotlight Hop.  Today's hop is showcasing Surely Goodness and Mercy and the Happy Anniversary Plain Jane.

My first card showcases the Happy Anniversary Plain Jane.  I love making white on white cards, especially for weddings, so this card was great fun to create.  Rolled roses is also a bit of an addiction, and I used them along with the Dreamy Leaves die to frame the sentiment.  Sorry about the picture quality...having some issues photographing white cards, but working on perfecting it :)

My second card showcases the Surely Goodness and Mercy Set.  The large flower and matching die were calling my name -- loudly (they can be quite demanding at times LOL), so I decided I had better make a card using them.  Since I am not much of a colourer, I decided to just stamp the flower image and go bold and dramatic with the colour combo.  Topped the card with the heart die from the Scalloped Trim Trio set and the little thanks tab is an elongated version using one of the dies from the Flag It die set.

An absolutely stunning wedding card, Marisa. Nothing is better than white on white. Love the roses.

First of all, Marisa, congratulations on becoming part of the release team, SO well deserved!! I've been away for a bit and trying to catch up! Both cards are lovely. The white on white is just elegant with the sentiment framed with the rolled roses and dreamy leaves. The second card is beautiful too with the touches of blue against the black and white. I love that you didn't color the flower, I think it's more eye catching this way. Two beautiful cards!

I love the black/white/blue combo on your second card. I like how you left the bloom white too. The peek at the Scalloped Trim Trio has just confirmed for me that I need it. But then I also "need" this new set too.....and the others that we've seen already.........ooohhh my cc is already complaining;)
