Verve sneak peeks!!

Oh, it's that time again! This is my second month as a Verve Diva and I am so super excited!! Verve is releasing 5 new stamp sets on the 10th and it's sneak peek time! Today we are showing cards from the sets Abundant Blessings and So Happy. What amazing sets, Abundant Blessings have floral images to die for and So Happy is a sentiment set that rivals my all time FAV Happy Everything. You can hop on over to Verve's Blog to see what the other Divas have come up with!

I decided to make 2 similar cards, but different... QUICK... can you count the differences? First person to comment with the correct number will win a little fun ribbon assortment from me! I used my new Basic Grey Eva pack and paired it with some of the lovely retired Pomegranite satin ribbon that I received from my Elf last year!

EDITED: Janette was the first! Great eye Janette. Jessica, you got them too, but Janette beat you by seconds :-) Janette, I will mail out some fun ribbons from Heidi's store ASAP!

And of course there are PRIZES!! Just leave a comment on Verve's blog post telling us one thing you're thankful for before Tuesday, September 9 at 8:00 Mountain time (10 PM ET, 9 PM CT, 7 PM PT) and we'll pick a random winner to receive both So Happy and Abundant Blessings. The winner will be announced during our release party that night on the Verve SCS Member Company Forum.

  1. These are beautiful cards, Michelle! I would make a guess, but I'll let someone else try, since my ribbon stash is way out of control already! LOL. I'll be sure to come back and see if my guess was right, though! Now I need to know! :)

  2. Gorgeous cards Michelle! The number just depends on you count them I guess. I say 8 and here is what I came up with:
    gem color
    gem placement
    photo corners vs buttons
    piercing vs. none
    white gel pen
    ink color of image and sentiment
    scallop circle cardstock colors
    different sentiment

    can't wait to see the rest of the sneak peeks!

  3. I'm not quite sure how to count them (each individual thing, or groups?), but I'll guess seven. :)

  4. thanks so much Michelle and you know how much I love my ribbon since I use it on 99% of my cards LOL

  5. Your cards are both so wonderful I just can't pick! The designs are really wonderful.
