Verve Release day and Designing with Hope Stamps Eternal!

Hi everyone! Lots of excitement today! I am very happy to announce that I am part of the new amazing Hope Stamps Eternal design team -the DT coordinator, in fact!! Woot! I was so thrilled when my friend Rachel decided to put together a team for her amazing store, Hope Stamps Eternal. There were MANY AMAZING applicants, and it was very hard to narrow it down, but without further adu, here is the new team:

Rachel Hope Baird, owner extraordinaire - Hope Stamps Eternal
Michelle Woerner, DT Coordinator (ME!!)
Bonnie Sharp - The Lucky Clucker
Carolina Buchting - Carolina's Creative Pad
Colleen Wold - Glitter Ink
Jessica Colligan - Shamrocks and Seashells
Kelli Caslow - Yard Sale Kind of Luck
Natalie Dever - The Dougnat Diaries
Tammy Hershberger - Stamp Happy

What did I tell ya? Fantastic team, huh?!? Each week the team will be playing along in the Cupcake Inspiration Challenges and everyone is welcome to play! The challenges are posted each Sunday, but that day may change as the team takes shape. I hope to inspire you to play along, stay tuned this Sunday for an AMAZING cupcake :-)

AND, today is the final sneak peek day for Verve Stamps and we are peeking the set, Forever In our Hearts. This set is an amazing sympathy set. In true Verve style, the sentiments are just beautiful.

My card uses the monochromatic colors of black, cream with a touch of metallic cardstock in Champagne. The prima flowers each have a black Kaiser pearl in the center and the black flourishes are a combination of spellbinder dies cut up and glued. The background panel was embossed with my all time favorite folder, Swiss Dots!

PLEASE join us for the Verve Release Party tonight at 6pm (Pacific time)!! There will be lots of fun chatting, more DT sneak peek cards and of course PRIZES!! It's always a good time and we hope to see you there!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
