Verve New Release Spotlight: Kind Words & Happy Hello

Hi Everyone,

Today the amazing August Verve Sneak Peek Release continues with two more amazing sets that Julee has created called: Kind Words and Happy Hello! I am always amazed by how Julee is able to create magic in every set - and these sets are pure Verve-y magic - gorgeous fonts and absolutely gorgeous sentiments!

The Kind Words stamp set is full of kind and encouraging words - the sentiments are so unique and from the heart. I couldn't wait to use the sentiment: "You are such a joy to me" and wanted to create an embossed silhouetted image from the super sweet flower in this set. I used the Mojo Sketch #152 from this week to create this card:

Card Ingredients:
Paper: Prism cardstock
Stamps: Kind Words from Verve Stamps
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and Potter's Clay
Accessories: EK success die punch and large and small scallops punch, Spellbinder's Nesties, Adirondacks liquid pearls, Cuttlebug embossing folder, dimensionals and ribbon from stash.

The second card that I made for today's peek is from the Happy Hello stamp set - and let me tell you - these are definitely the Happiest Hello sentiments EVER! :))) I love me some sunshine - and as soon as I saw this quote: "You are Sunshine for my Soul" I knew I had to use it. I wanted to make a sunshiney card and so I stamped the sentiment in the circle stamp and punched it out (I LOVE that all the sentiments fit into the circle and square shapes in the stamp set). And I couldn't help BUT use the gorgeous flowers from the Dream Big stamp set that was peeked yesterday - so I put the sentiment right in the center of the flower:

And I LOVE the little dot stamps in this set and created a border from the dot stamps inked in red - Here is a closer peek at a sideways view little red dot border:

Card Ingredients:
Paper: DP from Sassafrass Lass and Prism cardstock
Stamps: Happy Hello and Dream Big stamp sets from Verve Stamps
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and Potter's Clay
Accessories: Adirondacks liquid pearls, dimensionals, Crystal Effects, bling from Want2Scrap, ribbon from stash

I love how these stamp sets come packed with sentiments that allow you to create a card straight from the heart and I can't wait to see all the gorgeous art pieces that the Divas have created using these gorgeous stamp sets. So come along and hop along with me and check out their amazing blogs! Please leave them a little love there is a hidden prize in one of their blogs for the chance to win these stamp sets for one lucky commentator!!!

Wishing you all the happiest of days!!!
Hugs :))))))))))
