Verve New Release Spotlights Day 1


 Swirling Hearts, Sweet Treats, new dies

Hi Everyone!  
 
I just realized that this is my first post of the New Year! Happy New Year everyone! Sorry to be MIA - I started off the New Year with a stomach flu -not a fun way to start off the new year! The real way to start off the new year is with some awesome new stamps that Julee will be releasing from Verve stamps this Friday! Today, we are kicking off the New Release Spotlights from Verve with sneak peeks from 2 new stamp sets: Swirling Hearts and Sweet Treats and some AWESOME new dies!!! Holla!

Julee has created awesome stamp sets with beautiful stamps that also coordinate with some awesome new dies! One of the dies is this awesome heart die (which will coordinate with a stamp set that will be peeked later this week!) I created this card using the stamp set Swirling Hearts, which coordinates with the Vintage Oval Die. I stamped the die image with some different inks and then cut it out with the die and cut out the center of the image and popped it up over the sentiment: "Be Mine". I cut out the hearts with the new Jotted Heart Die from Verve and after dotting it with some liquid pearls I placed them here and there. I love all the papers from the Be Mine collection from EP and loved this DP with the post card :) I finished it off with a bit of sewing and a wee bit of bling :)


Card Ingredients:
Paper: Cardstock: Bazzil and DP: EP's Be Mine
Stamps: Verve Stamps: Swirling Hearts
Ink: RoseRed Memento Ink and Tuxedo Black
Accessories: dimensionals, bling, sew easy, white gel pen, ribbon from stash, corner chomper and liquid pearls.




This Friday, January 7, Verve is releasing some fabulous new sets and dies! To countdown to the release, we’re putting on a series of mini blog hops Tuesday through Thursday of this week to preview the new sets! And because a new release is something to celebrate, we’ve hidden a prize on one of the participating blogs each day! Just leave a little comment love as you hop around to be entered into a drawing to win that day’s featured stamps! 

Sankari <---- You are here! yay!
