Verve January Release - Day 2 of Sneak Peeks!

Good Morning Everyone!!!
Did you catch the start of the sneak peeks on the Verve Blog?! Julee has created some amazingly beautiful stamp sets for the release this Friday!!! Yesterday, the Divas kicked off the sneak peeks with some amazingly gorgeous samples! Today, we continue the sneak peeks with samples from the stamp set: Accent Notes! Check out the Verve Blog to check out what yumminesssssss Michelle, Tosh, Shannan have created for your viewing pleasure!!! I totally adore every stamp in this beautiful stamp set and here is my card using the Accent Notes set:

You know me and sunshine - I can't get enough of it (especially with all the weather that we have been having!) The background of the card is stamped with one of the beautiful filigree stamps that Julee has designed. I stamped the circle motif and spellbinded it out (can that be a new verb? lol!) and then popped up the sentiment on a circle that I had punched out. I created little rays with just some strips of yellow paper attached with glue dots - and then created some stripes on the bottom with a copic and a gel pen :). And for the final touch - a bit of bling, a strip of ribbon and some liquid pearls :)

I can't even tell you how I loved making this card! The release party for all the stamp sets that Julee will be releasing will be happening on Friday Night!!! And you could win some awesome Verve-y goodness too!! We have 5 challenges lined up for you - all you have to do is to complete a challenge and upload it (you can check out the Master thread for more info!). You can also do all 5 to be a Verve Champion! Here are all 5 challenges:

Challenge 1 :
Chipboard challenge brought to you by Michelle (upload with key word: VSJAN10A)

Challenge 5

My challenge was to create a Valentine Favor Box! I created a cake slice favor box stuffed with Lindt Chocolates :) (which as Maureen was mentioning is a hard thing to make especially when you are trying to save enough chocolates for the picture you are going to take! lol!) I decorated a cake slice favor box that I had - but you can create one of your own with this template. Here is my favor box with a super sneaky sneak peek (more on this stamp set later this week!) from the stamp set called: Love's Flower which will also be released on Friday!

Here is a picture of the cake slice box from the side:

And then when it is opened to reveal all the yummies within it :)
(see, I didn't eat the whole thing! (just most of it :)

I hope you enjoyed all the sneak peeks today! You can check out the Verve blog here for more information - and check out this Master thread on the SCS forum for more details as to how to play along!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!!!
Big sunshiney hugs :)
Sankari :)
