Verve New Release Spotlight - Many Blessings


It's almost New Release time at Verve!! Friday there will be a whole slew of fabulous new sets available and believe me, you won't want to miss this release!! Today begins a series of daily mini blog hops with several divas sharing projects each day for the next 3 days using some of the new releases. Today we're sharing projects featuring some of the new Plain Janes, Happy Fall, and Many Blessings.


I whipped up a quick and easy hybrid card using the new Many Blessings set and my favorite "Go To" layout (I use this simple layout on A LOT of cards because it's so quick and easy and is a great way to use up lots of scraps!!). The Many Blessings set features this adorable stemmed flower in 3 different sizes as well as the "Many Blessings" sentiment. I stamped the medium flower 3 times in a row and colored with Copics to match the printed digi paper from the Life is Good kit by Fee Jardine (Sweet Shoppe). I added a simple bow with the sentiment on a tag and it was done! Like I said, quick and easy!!

I just love these fun flowers in this set! I can see them in so many fun color combinations - colored with Copics or watercolored or even paper pieced with patterned paper. So many possibilities!!

I just love those flowers on your card. And the little tag...can I say love love love it. I am addicted to those little tags. They seem to pop up on my cards very often. It's exciting to know I will be able to have more sentiments small enough for tags! Love the paper you used on your card too.
