...Verve September Sneak Peeks ~ Day Three

It's day three of the new September Release of Verve stamps coming out tomorrow...what do you think so far? I hope you have been enjoying yourself, because I have two more sets to showcase today!

This card was made using the elements from the set Harvest Blessings. I used four images from the set to create this card: the wreath, the individual berry (on both the wreath and the background paper), the sentiment, and the small bough on the patterned paper (from the retired Spring Break Designer Series Paper pack). I used the color combo Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Certainly Celery, and Whisper White. The only embellishments used were Silver Brads, and Rich Razzleberry Dotted Ribbon.

This card was created using the new set Happiness Found. The sentiment was stamped and embossed on the Whisper White Cardstock while the leaves were stamped in Classic Ink (Soft Suede, Pumpkin Pie, and Bermuda Bay). I cut the card base and focal panel with my Spellbinders' Mega Curved Rectangle Nestabilities, and I also embossed both. The only embellishment I used was an orange button from the Sherbet Designer Button collection with some Linen Thread.

That's it for today! If you're loving the stamps you've seen so far, then you definitely need to be ready for the official release Verve after the Release Party on Friday, September 18 @ 9:00 p.m EST! Verve will be releasing 6 new sets and a scripture Plain Jane immediately following the . The Divas will also be sharing sneak peeks (and a giveaway) at the Verve Blog, and also on their individual blogs. There are also some Release Week Challenges at the Verve Forum
that you can play along with for a chance to win some FREE STAMPS. Until tomorrow...
