Verve Preview #2: Just for You

Hello, everyone! Happy Thursday! It's day two of the Verve Sneak Previews, and today's set is called Just for You. This set has beautiful sentiments meant to let someone know you care. Just For You and all the new Verve stamps will be available after the Release Party this Friday night.

I made two projects with this set. The first is this card. It's a pretty simple design, but I just love this color combination! I used SU! Parisian Specialty dsp and Circle Nestabilities, and I embellished with ribbon, buttons, sponging, lace edge border and machine stitching.

I really love this next project! When I saw this sentiment I immediately thought of gift tags. Then I ran across a scrap of Let it Snow paper (Flair Design), and this Christmas tag was born! I did some sponging with SU! Close to Cocoa ink around the paper panels and the snowflakes to give it a vintage look. I pleated and stitched the ribbon on the bottom, and I added Icicle Stickles to the larger snowflake.

Stop by the Verve Stamps Blog to see more samples from the Verve Divas. While you're there, you can find out how you can win a set of your own!

There is one more day of previews tomorrow, then the release party tomorrow night! I can't wait! I'm also excited because Megan comes home tonight from France! I am really looking forward to seeing her and hearing all about her trip. We've missed her around here -- even with three kids still at home, it was a little quieter! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Have a wonderful day!
Christina
