Verve Spotlight Hop Day 4

Welcome to the last day of our February 2013 Spotlight Hops!  Everything you see previewed along today's hop will be available inVerve's online store today! 

I have a couple more cards to share with you today.  This first one uses a sentiment from Shining Star and the Starry dies.

I simply cut the dies out of the card front and then took those die cut stars, and colored them with Copics.  This way I didn't have to run them all through with different card stock colors.  Fun huh?

This next card uses a new Plain Jane, You Make Me Smile.  I masked off the "you" and used Verve's I heart u die instead.  I added some a little chevron pattern from the Borderlines set.  Then to finish it off, I added in some black pearls and a resin rose bud.

I also have one more card for the Viva La Verve Sketch Challenge...



I love this CAS sketch by Janelle!  In this card, I used one of the new Scalloped Trim Trio Borders and the largest banner from the new Banner Bundle.

Brilliant cards Laurie! Love the massive 'U' die cut on the second, but really impressed with the idea to colour the die cut stars with the first to avoid using coloured cardstock! Very clever!!

Kath said...

Love the cards - especially the die cut stars.

Wonderful! All three are so clean and awesome! The bright colors of the stars really had me on your first card, but I like the fun way you used the letter U and the bright flower on the "smile" card and the softness of the "twinkle" card is perfect to celebrate a new blessing! Thanks so much for sharing!!!

Valentyna Komisarenko said...

Love your cards, Laurie! Starry is my favorite!

All of these cards are just amazing, but I love the star one the best! And how simple to reuse the cutouts to create the color underlay. No waste!

BeccyH said...

I cannot wait to get my heads on these!! What eye candy!

Crestajune said...

Three amazing cards! I love how you used the star die. Brilliant! I also especially like the "U make me smile"... one of my favorite sentiments, and the "U" is one of my favorite Verve dies... I am always looking for new ways to use it. Thanks for the inspiration! Have a fantastic day, Laurie!

All your cards are great but I do love the first one! I was convinced that was colored CS behind the stars - how great to just color the cutouts with markers. Thanks for sharing your creative talents with us!

WOW! What else can I say? Especially love the first one.
