New Release Spotlight: Dream Big


Today I've got some sneak peeks for you using the new Verve set, Dream Big.  This is such a beautiful set with big, bold flowers and wonderful sentiments to pair with the flowers! 

I have a couple of cards using this set.  The first is very colorful adding a "silhouette" butterfly by using a punch. 

The second card I have layers the flower in yellow and orange.  The flower is also covered in glitter to make it extra sparkly.  I used a pearl brad for the center of the flower and embossed the background. 




Each day through August 19, we'll be previewing another set or two from our upcoming Anni-VERVE-sary release. We've hidden a prize on one of the participating blogs each day, so 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 Eastern Friday, August 20. Winners will be announced at our Anni-VERVE-sary Bash Release Party that night. And for even more chances to win new stamps, play along with our Anni-VERVE-sary sketch challenges, going on this week in our forum!
