Verve's May release

Hi everybody! Did anyone have a chance to stop by Verve's release party last night? It was super fun and this month, Julee released 6 new stamp sets and 2 Plain Janes!! All perfect for Dads and Grads!

I have 3 release cards to share with you. This first uses the new set, Dad's Day and Protector. I stamped the large sentiment stamp from Protector repeatedly in Soft Sky. I then stamped it separately in chocolate chip and cut out a couple words I wanted to highlight. I used my "go to" guy card embellishments - punched stars and aged copper brads.

This next card also uses Dad's Day . I went with a bright fun feeling with this card. I used SU!'s retired East Coast Prep DP. This one is pretty simple, just a couple oval nestabilities, some piercing and Wasabi striped ribbon.

This last card uses the Whimsy Tree Plain Jane and Dad's Day. For this one, I used SU!'s Wanted DP (or is it Apple Cider?) and some more punched stars. Gotta love them for guy cards! I also used a piece of my SU! Hodgepodge Hardware tin -I seriously HAVE to use these more often. I think I have used 5 pieces in 2 years!!

Sunday is my 3rd week as the Flourishes Limelight designer. Be sure to hop on over to the Flourishes Blog and check out my cards! Here is a sneak peek, but you will have to go to Flourishes' blog to see them all, there may even be a 3rd card there!
