I'm happy to introduce you to the newest Verve stamp releases, fresh on the market TODAY! I'll share a card with you using each of the new sets, ok?

This first card is made using Asian Flair, isn't it wild? I'm guessing my card's not too Asian looking (the pink and orange would be a dead-giveaway, LOL), but I love it anyways! I made it using a piece of PTI white cardstock. The whole pattern is stamped using the stamps in Asian Flair! First I stamped the pink squares in the background (Pink Passion), then I stamped the round pattern on a separate piece of white cardstock and punched them out using my 3/4 inch circle punch. I mounted them on top of the pink squares. Since I wanted the card to look like a gift to tie in with the sentiment, I added a ribbon and bow to the front of the card! This next card is made using Feeling Groovy, which is a set of 9 sentiments inspired by the lyrics from many popular songs! Included in the set are two flower images, which I must say, are my two new favorite stamps. I love these flower images. That's why I focused this card on them. When I think of the word "groovy", I think bright colors and flower chains worn around your head (reminiscent of the 60's). So I made a flower chain using one of the flower images, and then proceeded to color the flowers bright, hippy-like colors! Why I combined the lime green and teal flowers with bright pink stripes is beyond me (I tried several different paper patterns before I settled on the pink--it just looked the best to me)! Sometimes you just gotta go with your gut instinct and my gut instinct told me the pink looked best!
This next card features a sentiment from the new 6 sentiment set called Here For You. It's a collection of sentiments perfect for encouraging those special people going through trying times. Sometimes you just don't know what to say in situations like that. But these sentiments are perfect for putting into words what your feeling when they're hurting. These are a must-have in every stampers collection!
And the final set being released today is another sentiment set called All About You. It contains 6 sentiments (and a little swirl stamp makes for a total of 7 pieces in the set). These sentiments are fabulous for letting people know how special they are in your life! I made this card using one of Julee's (Poetic Artistry) most recent Mojo Monday card sketches....
And finally, Julee is releasing ONE more special line of sentiments over at Verve starting today! The stamps are called Plain Janes, a collection of individual sentiments that don't have an index printed on the acetate they're packaged in, thus the name, Plain Janes! They are dirt cheap and are a perfect way to add to your collection when your budget is slim (like mine is currently, LOL). This month's Plain Jane stamp is a bible verse (Psalm 37:4), which is a special one for Julee. This is the card I made using the new Plain Jane....
Well, I hope you enjoyed today's plethora of cards using Verve's new stamps sets! The good news is, all these sets won't set you back an arm and a leg! You can get all four of the new sets (excluding the Plain Jane sentiment) for just $42! That's a savings of $6 buck-a-roonies peeps! Who doesn't like saving money? $6 bucks will buy you a tank and a half of gas ladies! What a deal!
