Verve Preview Spotlights Day 3-Release Day!!

We've finally made it to release day, hooray! I bet you've got your lists already made and you're ready for the sets to hit the store, aren't you? I just know you're going to love everything released this month!
New Stamps & Dies coming April 13

I have three more cards to share today! I was just SO inspired by this months stamps that I couldn't help but crank out a ton of cards:)
This one would be fun for a tween/teen girl birthday card!
I love the wild, bold colors and know just who this one will go to! The background was created with the image from Small Celebrations stamped in different colored Impress Fresh Inks! The tag is cut out with the Sweet Scallop Tag and I stamped the circle flourish stamp (also from Small Celebrations) in black ink. The sentiment I cut out with a circle punch and mounted on dimensionals!

This next one was also created with images from Small Celebrations.
Can you tell I love this set? I stamped the flourish circle image in pink ink on the pink card base. I pulled out my Sweet Scallop Tag again and stamped the circle flourish (careful to line it up with the one previously stamped on the pink cardstock) and a fun sentiment! I finished this card off with some butterflies punched with the All Aflutter die set!

Last but not least is a card with my beloved Ribbon Banner Die!
You know, you can use this die to create a long banner, simply by cutting TWO (or three or four or however long your card will allow!) and cover the seams! I love having this die because I always cut my banners crooked, now it's fool proof! The sentiment is from Purely Sentimental and the flourish circle from Small Celebrations. 

Well I hope you've enjoyed our release this month and that you get your inky paws on every single new set and die! You will NOT regret this purchase;) Thanks so much for stopping by my blog all week and all your sweet comments:) I read and appreciate EVERY one of you!!

Here's the hop order in case ya get lost in the land of inspiration;)
