Verve Sneak Peek Day 2


Are you ready to see more of Julee's latest Verve designs? Hopefully, you hopped along yesterday to the first day of our spotlight hops...if not, scroll down to my previous day's post to check it out! Today, you get to see a fabulous set with 20 (yes, I said TWENTY) stamps in one set and wait until you see the gorgeous fonts for the Christmas sentiments! They are truly droolworthy! Here's a card that highlights one of the elegant sentiments...
I paired it with a fave tag die and added some sprigs from Verve's Merry Wishes set. The poinsettia is a fun new Spellbinder's die with edges sponged with Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive inks. The rounded tip of the petal roller tool was used to curve the edges of all leaves/petals.

My next project is a set of 3 x 3" gift card enclosures with a variety of fun little images from Bright Spirits and the Winter Tree PJ!

Here's the hop list so you can check out more new creations by all the Divas! Be sure and leave a comment on each blog for a chance to win free Verve!
