Lots of Verve to share

Hi everyone!! Have you all have a chance to check out the new release from Verve Stamps this month? It was a BIG one -8 new stamp sets and 5 Plain Janes. Julee's largest yet! I have several samples to share with you.

This card uses the Plain Jane, Little Star. Plain Jane stamps are single stamps which are very reasonably priced. I SOOOOO love this stamp. Most of you know I am in a mom's group and I can see this stamp getting LOTS of use!

The card started out with Julee's Mojo77 sketch, but I couldn't make it work so it morphed into this. I love working with star punches, I think they bring so much to a card and the stars on the image are perfection in my book! Also, I am lovin' the Top Note pieces. I don't own that die, so a big thank you to WishRAK!! Here is a peek at the inside.

Card Deets:
Stamps - Little Star plain jane
Ink - Wild Wasabi, bashful blue (both SU!)
Paper - Bashful blue, Sahara Sand, Certainly Celery, Delicate Dots DP (all SU!)
Accessories - Top Note die, Small star punch and celery twill (all SU!), mini star punch, circle nestabilities (Spellbinder), Stardust stickles (Ranger)

This card uses the set, Everlasting Life. What an amazing set. Such elegant fonts, designs and sentiments. I just received my big SU order, so I had to bust into the Rasberry Tart DP! LOVE it! I think I am jinxed when it comes to sketches, I tried to use Jen's SFYTT, but it didn't work exactly. But, it came close enough, so I will call it good! The black brads, ribbon and button are from Pinkhedgehog papercrafts.

I couldn't fit the sentiment on the outside, so here is a peek at the inside.

Card Deets:

Stamps - Everlasting Life
Paper - Cameo Coral, white, black, Rasberry Tart DP
Accessories - rectangle nesties, black brads, copic markers, angel wings shimmerz, black dotted organdy ribbon, button

This card uses the set, Practically Perfect. Look at this cutie? I love this set. It's all about babies and there is something for everyone in the sentiments. Super duper cute!!

Card Deets:
Stamps: practically perfect
Paper: pretty in pink, barely banana, DCWV Nana's nursery
Accessories: pink taffeta, primas, brads, labels one nesties

This last card uses the set, Miracles Blossom and the sentiment is from Circular Sayings. I used some of the new Basic Grey, Porceline -what delicate colors it has! I just love these flowers Julee designed with these sets. Lots of possibilities.

Card Deets:
Paper - Blush Blossom (SU!), Desert Coral Light paper (Prismpaper), Porceline DP (Basic Grey), white
Ink - Cameo Coral, River Rock and Close to Cocoa (all SU!)Accessories - SU saffron brads, various primas, Saffron 5/8" grosgrain ribbon, double edged tag (spellbinders), swiss dots embossing folder (Cuttlebug)
