Three beautiful new sets and coordinating die sets just released and they're all available in the shop right now.

Today's featured focus is designer's choice, so you might just sneak a peek at a whole bunch of must-haves!  If you've come from visiting Wanda, you're in the right place!  For this card, I used the Fill My Cup stamp set along with the Happiness in a Cup Die Set.  I just LOVE the cups with the straws that come in both stamp sets Verve is releasing this month.  It's always great to have thank you cards on hand. . .and thank you cards with a coffee pun for a sentiment are awesome because I love to stick a Starbucks card inside!  :)

I hope you've enjoyed the hops these last few days!  Thanks for stopping by!  Next on today's hop is Marisa!!

Verve July Release Spotlight Hops - Day 2



Welcome back to Day 2 of Verve's July Release Spotlight Hops!  The Verve Divas and special guests are back for another day of spotlighting our new release! Everything previewed this week will be available to order in the Verve online shop on Monday, July 10. And if you just can't wait, you can pre-order our July Release Collection at a 25% discount through July 9!

Today we're sharing our first projects featuring the Happiness Is stamp set and coordinating Happiness in a Cup Die Set.  If you've come from visiting Wanda, you're in the right place!!  I decided to go clean and simple with this set.  I just LOVE the die cut "happiness".  It just makes me happy and I wanted it to stand out on the card.  As far as the "teensy bit of silence". . .anyone with multiple kids would understand!  ;)  When I stamped the sentiment, I inked it up with a medium blue ink and then just inked up the bottom parts of the sentiment with a deeper blue to get the ombre look.  I LOVE how the mug looks distressed. . . and that's all part of the stamp!  How cool is that?!  Thanks for stopping by today!  Next on today's hop is Marisa!!

If you're coming from visiting Julee, you're in the right place!  I have two card today using the NEW Butterfly Grace set along with the coordinating Graceful Butterflies die set.  I just think this set is beautiful!  I love the different butterflies, the beautiful sentiments. . .and the coordinating dies make it even better!

I stamped and die cut each butterfly.  The sentiment was stamped and embossed.  The papers are from the Sugar Chic Collection by Heidi Swapp.  I also used this week's Mojo Monday Sketch for my first card!

My second card is more on the simple side.  The papers are from the We Are Family Collection from Echo Park.  I used the tiny butterfly die from the die set for this card as well.  They are just SO sweet! Both cards have some Shine Bright Sequins for some sparkle.  Thanks for stopping by today!  Next on today's hop is Christyne!!

Let Your Dreams Take Flight


Hi there!  Today Taylored Expressions is partnering up with Word Art Wednesday for their weekly challenge!!  Taylored Expressions is sponsoring a $25 Gift Certificate to the TE Store, so we hope you'll play along!!

When I think of word art, I think of clean and simple so that the word art is the focus.  I used the Dreams Take Flight stamp from Taylored Expressions for my card.  In order to make it stand out, I stamped and embossed it in white and then stamped it again to create a mask for the butterfly and flowers.  Once I applied the mask to the images, I sponged some Cookie Monster ink onto the cardstock.   Because the image was heat embossed, the white embossing resists the ink so that the sentiment shows up beautifully.

After removing the masks, I used markers to color in the images.  As a finishing touch, I added some Snow Flurries Sequins for some sparkle.  I hope you'll play along with the challenge!!  Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful day!!
