The Beauty of Dreams

Egads, have you all seen Verve Visual's May release??? I LOVE it all. Here's a quick card featuring the Floral Whimsy set. I modified the sentiment a bit. I thought this one worked nicely as well- Believe in the Beauty of Dreams. The original quote is "the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams". If you're wondering how I omitted the other words... I didn't use a marker. Instead I stamped the phrase on an eclipse masking sheet. Then I cut out the words I planned to use, keeping the rest of the phrase connected. I placed that on my paper, then stamped away. Voila, a new quote! I also had fun making the pattern vase. I used two stampin' spots, inking up the middle with orange, than added the pink along the ends, as well as pink stripes on the orange. The small shadow under the vase was added by a grey alcohol marker.

Stamps: Floral Whimsy
Ink: Pink Passion, Only Orange, Chocolate Chip, Black Ink
Papers: Pink Passion, Chocolate Chip, White, Summer Picnic
Accessories, etc.: oval nestabilities, American Crafts Orange Ribbon


  1. Great tip for stamping the modified sentiment! I may have to get some of the Eclipse tape afterall. Do you know where the best deal for it is? I'm always up for penny-pinching if possible, until our house sells anyway!

  2. Adorable card! Love the sentiment. Great tip for masking out the words! I've done it many ways but I think I like yours best! Thank you!
