Verve New Release Spotlight - Day 2

Welcome back for Day 2 of New Release Spotlights!  Today we're introducing the You and I set, the I Heart U Die Set and the Nicest Thoughts Plain Jane.   Remember, one lucky commenter from each day's hop will win the sets and dies featured that day, so be sure and leave a little love in the Divasphere! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize details and deadlines.

My first card today uses the You and I set along with the I Heart U Die Set.  I used papers from the Hippity Hoppity Collection from We R Memory Keepers.  I stamped "i" from the You and I set in white craft ink onto orange cardstock and stamped "u" in Ocean Tides onto the teal cardstock and die cut them with the I Heart U Die Set.  The heart was also die cut using the die set and I stamped "love" on it as well as stamping "so much" below the die cut sentiment.  I added stitching all around the card. 

I do have a second project using the I Heart U Die Set AND the Nicest Thoughts Plain Jane.  It is also for Jackie's Get Your Diva On Challenge that starts today, Tag, You're It!  We'd love for you to play along in Jackie's GYDO Challenge!!

This time, I didn't stamp the letters, I die cut them out of patterned paper from the Life of the Party Collection from My Mind's Eye. 

Thanks for stopping by today!  Please come back tomorrow for more sneak peeks! Next up on the hop is Tosh!!
