Verve Sneak Peeks, Day 3 ~ To the Moon!

Hello and welcome to Day 3 of the Verve sneak peeks! Can you believe how gorgeous these new sets are? While they’re really aimed at Valentine’s Day, you can use them for any “Just Because I Love You” card! I love leaving these for my husband. I’ll stick one in his truck, or leave one on his desk, just something unexpected. They love that kind of thing!

_______________________

**Details**
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!* Deadline for comment entries is 6PM Mountain Friday, January 7. Winners will be announced at our release party on Friday night!
___________________________

Today, we’re featuring a new set, aimed at BABIES! It’s called “To the Moon” and is just the sweetest set you’ve ever seen! It’s got animals, hearts, stars, and fabulous sentiments that we’ve come to LOVE from Verve!


This one is a fun little baby girl card I made. The animals in this set are SO sweet. I mean…just look at them! Doesn’t it make you want to go to the zoo? It does me! LOL! 


I stamped three of the animals in Espresso ink and colored them in purple Copics. I stamped the sentiment in a box that I cut out with Nesties. I didn’t pop this negative up, so it looks like  a purple mat is on top of the vanilla square, but it’s really nestled in the frame I made. I thought the rhinestones would frame the sentiment nicely and, really, what’s a card without ribbon???
________________________________________

I can’t leave you with just ONE card today now, can I? I think I may have painted myself into a corner and you’re going to expect multiple cards EVERY day, lol!
I made a baby girl card, so it only seemed fitting to make a baby boy card too...


This one is much less involved than the first one. I wanted to KISSS *Keep it sweet and simple*
I stamped the sweet elephant, who’s name is Emery *aww!* and then stamped the frame around him and embossed it in silver. The rest, is history!
____________________________

And since SO many of you like my jewelry yesterday, I thought I’d do something in that vain with today’s set! Only I made a magnet!


This was so easy it’s silly, lol! All I did was use that sweet frame from To the Moon and find some patterned paper I liked. This piece comes from Webster’s Pages! Like I said, I just stamped the frame, and them made the magnet!! Easy peasy! Look for a toot in a day or two!
