New Release Spotlight: Kind Words/Happy Hello

For the Our Craft Lounge Blog Hop, please scroll down to the next post!  Thanks!

Today I have two new sets to show you from Verve!  My first two projects use the Kind Words set.  I just LOVE the flower image in this set and the sentiments that go along with them! 
For my first card, I used bold, bright colors.  I colored the stamp with markers and then spritzed it with water for a watercolored look.  I also added a few score lines above and below the focal piece along with some lines of glitter.
The next card is not quite as bright!  :)  I decided to go soft and elegant with this one.

I still used scoring as an accent along with a border punch and some faux stitching. 

My next card uses the Happy Hello set.  This is a fun set!  If you like to create geometric patterns or a more modern look, you will LOVE this set! 
I created the background on this card using the circles from the set, a couple of markers and a ruler. There are also squares if you prefer those! 
This sentiment is just perfect.  A different way of saying you make me happy, don't you think?  I just love it! 

Remember, if you'd like to win these sets, leave some love (comments) for the Divas!  I'm sure you'll love the eye candy they have to show you anyway!

All three of your cards are great, but I really love the second one. White on white is so elegant, or at least it is the way you did it. And I love how you used the bookplate die from PTI on the last one as the focal point. A great way to increase the verstility of that piece.
