All men (Watu wote)...All creatures (Viumbe vyote)...Everybody (Awaye yote)...Praise the Lord (Sifu mungu)...

Good morning, y'all! I'm back with some more creations...yep! I'm on a roll! Today is the Verve release, and we're showing you some previews of the new set Text Objects. I love this set! As you can see...I couldn't stop at one card. *grin* So let's go, are you ready?


The first card I created is a pretty straightforward, clean and simple design. I stamped the Winnie the Pooh quote on the Kraft base layer, then added the larger coordinating sentiment on the cream panel I cut with my Vintage Oval Die. Here's a closer look:



The next card I created uses the Gandhi quote background strip & larger sentiment.


I also layered some lace, ribbon, and a couple of paper pieced hearts from the same set. Yep! There are a few images in this fabulous set to coordinate with the sentiments. Wait till you see!!
Here's a closer look at the sentiment panel and other details:
