Final day of Verve peeks and RELEASE DAY!

Hi everyone! I am so excited! Today is the final peeks for Verve's anniversary release. AND I'm REALLY excited about the 2 sets peeked today, Delightful and Delicious and A Cup of Life. They are COFFEE AND TEA sets! Done with the Verve style that only Julee can create. I have to say, MY FAVORITES of the month! There are some amazing projects posted on the Verve blog using these sets, be sure to check them out.

Here is a peek of my card posted there.

I have a couple other cards to share using these sets. This first one uses the A Cup of Life and Bountiful Backgrounds. I colored of the teapot and cup with copic markers and popped up the cup. The bottom portion is made by embossing the polka dotted bg stamp (from bountiful backgrounds) with clear EP on kraft.

Some silver pearls (from Michael's) help show off the images. I used a combination of bashful blue and PTIs dark brown DSP -I just love blue and brown, so rich!

This next card uses the Delightful and Delicious set AND some of my new K&Co DP, Que Sera Sera (which I won from a contest over at the Spotted Canary). The butterfly is part of the paper, so I carefully trimmed the piece to place it at the top corner and added the Zva rhinestone flourish for the tail. I continued the rhinestone swirls for the coffee steam. The flowers were colored with copic markers to match.

AND, YES! That's stitching you see around the card. I finally busted out my clunker machine and jumped on the sewing bandwagon. I AM NOT a sewer, so you will probably only see white thread and crooked stitches -LOL!!

Don't forget about all the Diva Giveaways going on in the Verve Forums on SCS there's lots of chances to win Verve prizes! My game is a word game of sorts and is sooooo fun!! There is STILL time!!

The Release party is tonight at 5pm Pacific over in the SCS Verve Forum! See you there!

AND I also wanted to mention that there is NEW 6x6 COSMO CRICKET paper in stock now over at Hope Stamps Eternal. Oh, be still my little heart. Rach has all 4 lines and even some coordinating chipboard!
