Day 3 Verve sneak peeks

WOWee! Have you all seen the gorgeous Verve Stamps sneak peeks so far? Pure heaven I tell you. This month, Julee is releasing 8 new sets and 5 Plain Janes! There is definitely something for everyone in this release.

Monday on the Verve Blog, we peeked the set called Practically Perfect. Here is a little sample from me. I combined the sample with the SCS Clean and Simple #4 challenge and the Mojo76 sketch.

I colored the bunny with Copic markers and the DP is Basic Grey Gypsy. See how her tummy is pieced?

Then yesterday (Tuesday) on the Verve Blog, we showed some sneak peeks for the sets Beautiful Kindness and Circular Sayings. MAN oh MAN! I love them BOTH! Here is a little sample using Beautiful Kindness.

I used some of my new Citrus matstack from DCWV and matched it up with tempting turquoise, pumpkin pie and so saffron. The butterfly is adorned with silver stickles and 3 silver brads. See the bead pin? I have been using these quite a bit. I love using up all those beads that have sat idle for years!

And today... drumroll please... the peeks are for the sets Chocolate Bunnies and Bunny Duet!! AND this is the day that my card is profiled on the Verve Blog! Woohoo! Be sure to check the post out and see the samples my lovely co-divas Susan and Jackie did with these!

This time I colored the bunny with prismacolor pencils and pieced each of the eggs with DP. Once again, I used my Citrus DP and did a bead/pearl combo with a corsage pin. The yellow pearls were colored with a copic marker. Super cool, you can buy plain white pearls and get matching colors anytime you want.

Do you like the sets so far? Wellll....there are two ways to win them! First, you can leave a comment on each day of the release sneak peeks on the Verve Blog. AND you can participate in Julee's contest on the Mojo Monday Blog! Lastly, mark your calendars for Sunday, March 8th at 5pm Pacific time for the Verve Release party in the Verve Forum on SCS.

Thanks for stopping by!

On a side note, my stamp area revamp hit a MAJOR snag, unfortunately the 12' long table won't work -UGH! So, I have to make an emergency trip to IKEA and start from scratch. Wish me luck!
