Verve Diva After Party Blog Hop!

Welcome to our January 2012 After Party Hop!  Last night we released 3 new stamp sets, 4 plain janes and 4 dies!  All of the new products we've been showcasing this week are available now in the Verve store! Be sure to leave a little comment love as you take a stroll through the Diva blogs. One lucky commenter from today's hop will win the ENTIRE Release! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize details and deadlines.

I am the caboose on this Diva party train, so if you arrived here from Shannan's blog then you're in the right place.  To start the hop from the beginning head on over to Amy's blog!

I LOVE this new release and it was hard to choose which set to use but I finally settled on Wings of Love with the coordinating Wavy Hearts die.  The sentiment is from Twitterpated.  I LOVE the simple sentiments from each of these sets and the heart with wings?  SWOON..........


I started my card with this week's Deconstructed Sketch, although I left off a couple panels in the long run.  It was, however, the inspiration for my card!  I stamped the heart/wings stamp in Versamark ink onto acetate paper and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  The heart itself was cut from corrugated cardboard with the Wavy Hearts Die.  I finished the heart by swiping some Vintage Cream ink across some of the raised cardboard.  The sentiment was cut with a die and was scored so I could fold it to give it "wings".  Some lace trim, adhesive gems and some twill ribbon tied with a button and some linen thread finish the tag.  I rounded the corners with a corner chomper and finished the card with some machine stitching.  All of the patterned papers are from the Crate Paper Paper Heart Collection (6x6).


Here is a close up of the corrugated cardboard heart and acetate wings......
