…Verve Day Release Peeks

card_1429

Happy Thursday, Verve fans!  In just a few hours Verve Stamps will be releasing a plethora of new stamp sets, and the Divas have been showcasing the new sets for the last five days.  You can find a list of participating Divas each day at the Verve Blog.  Today ends the sneak peeks, and these amazing sets will be released TOMORROW after our Release Chat at the Verve Forum.

Today we are showcasing “Great Friend”.  The 12-piece stamp set includes 3 sentiments, 6 flowers, and 3 leaf images.  I stamped one of the solid flowers twice in Lavender Lace Ink, then stamped the outline of those flowers in Black Ink twice as well.  I added a leaf to each end of the flower row, then added both Stickles and Rhinestones to the solid images.  I pierced the edges of the top White Cardstock panel, then stamped the sentiment in Black Ink.  I also sponged the edges large lavender panel with Lavender Lace Ink and a Sponge Dauber, then embossed the lavender horizontal panel with Cuttlebug’s Swiss Dots Embossing Folder.  I created the wavy edge on the bottom of the card front using the EK Success Bracket Edger Punch.  After adding tons of Dimensionals the card was complete.

Now let’s see what the other Divas have up their sleeves using this same set:

How would you like to win this set?  Be sure to leave a comment back at the Verve Blog each day during the previews.  One lucky commenter will be randomly chosen from the official sneak peek posts to win the set(s) being peeked that day. Deadline for comments is 6pm EST Friday, August 20.

That’s it for me today!  Thanks for stopping by, and I’ll see you back here tomorrow with another TGF Farm Fresh Friday Challenge!  Until then…
