Verve Preview Spotlights Day 2

Hello! This is my 2nd post for today, so if you're looking for my Sparkle Creations previews, please scroll down! Thanks so much:)
New Stamps & Dies coming April 13

So how are you liking the peeks so far? Pretty amazing release right? And it's only getting better, baby! Today we're previewing more fabulous sets and a new and...okay for lack of better word I'll use it again...a new AMAZING die!

First up I have the card I'm planning to give my pops on Father's Day! Using the new Super Dad set and the new Ribbon Banner Die, this card was a breeze!
I had so much fun making this card:) The star paper is from Jillybean Soup and the red polka dot paper is from EP! I created a rosette with MFT's rosette die and then layered the sentiment on top. I stamped two Ribbon Banners and then cut them out along the stamped line an then adhered them to another banner die I cut out with blue cardstock. The stars are from Super Dad as well and I thought they were a fun little detail to add.

Up next is a fun card I made for this week's Deconstructed Sketch!

These papers are from Jillybean Soup's Dutch Mustard collection! I used the new Ribbon Banner Die for the three rectangle panels and created a banner that I strung together with twine and buttons! The sentiment is from Small Celebrations:)

One last card to share, using the new Fringe Flower PJ and Small Celebrations!
I cut out two labels using the Curvy Bookplate die and then stamped the matching bookplate stamp from Tag Time and the sentiments from Small Celebrations and Purely Sentimental. I stamped the Fringe Flower on dp and then cut them out by hand (hand-cutting is very theraputic for me, I can sort of shut my brain off and focus on the lines, lol!) The dp is from MME and I did some distressing, some random sewing, and a couple buttons and brads!
