Best of Luck...Verve meets gel-à-tins

Dscn0811_5 So, I ordered some fun embossing powders in assorted blues and a green and also my very first stamp set from gel-à-tins and I am LOVING the stamps!  I haven't gotten to use the ep's yet.  When I saw the set I got (wild things) on their website I had this idea immediately for the dandelion image.  I love dandelions and both of my girls do - especially my DD#2.  She adores them and will go miles to pick one and blow it if she sees one.  Anyway, I wanted to keep the card simple, so hopefully it achieved this while still looking spectacular.  I really like it. I didn't have White craft ink (it's in storage...)so I used white StazOn and it didn't work as well as I would have hoped. I then lightly chalked some green, brown and blue onto the images.  The blue is lightly dusted on the butterfly and I think you can figure out where the green and brown are.  Anyway, I hope you like it - would love to know what you think!

Stamps:  wild things (gel-à-tins) and sentiment from Great Expectations (Verve Visual)

Paper: Kraft CS

Ink: White StazOn

Accessories:  White organdy ribbon, Pastels

Have a great weekend!!!

PS - Does anyone know how to omit the extra line-spacing like you see above in my "recipe" in TypePad?  I can't figure it out.  Thanks!!


  1. Super card!!! Love it...
    Try holding the Shift Key when you press enter for the new line, it should drop it just one line instead of the double space

  2. I love it! I like that you used the chalk to make it have the different colors.

  3. Ooh! So very pretty!

  4. very pretty. I love the kraft card base and the simplicity of this card.


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment. I appreciate it and thank you for adding a little sunshine to my day.
