Verve New Release Spotlights Day 1

Hi  Everyone!

This week is release week at Verve Stamps (WOOT!!!) and each day on the Verve Blog the Divas are showing samples from all the gorgeous and beautiful stamps that Julee is releasing this Friday (Mark your calendars for the wonderful release day party on SCS at 9pm EST!!! Today the Divas will be sharing samples from 5 different stamp sets!: Winter Mittens, Holiday, Friendly and Munchkin pieces Stamp set!!! I wanted to use the stamp set: Winter Mittens because I couldn't wait to paper piece those mittens!! Using my nesties, I stamped the sentiment and mittens and arranged them using the Mitten Weather from Cosmo Cricket, I created the card below.



Card Ingredients:
Paper: Bazzill mettalic red, PTI cardstock, Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather
Stamps: Winter Mittens 
Ink: Colorbox Cranberry Red
Accessories: Kaiser Rhinestones, Cranberry dimensional pearls, Spellbinders, ribbon (twill), Martha Stewart snowflake punches, want2scrap bling, dimensionals.

I loved making this fun card - and can't wait to meet more!!! I kept the layout pretty simple so that  I wish I had mittens like that (that matched!)  The sentiments and mittens are SO lovely to use IRL!! Julee is SO sweet and generous  **** each day we will be giving away of one of the featured stamps that from each day to one random commenter :) There is a cut off for comments which is 7pm EST on Friday - and the winners will be announced that Friday night at the Release Partayaaaay!

I can't wait to see what gorgeous samples the ladies have created!!!!





Thank you so much for stopping by today!  
Tomorrow is filled with more stamps sneak peeks - so come on by!!!
Big hugs to all,
Sankari :)
