Verve Beach Party!!

Today is the first day of the Verve Beach Party Release Spotlights!! Head on over to the Verve Blog to see some sneak peeks at the first of several new Verve Stamps!! I'm sharing 2 creations with you today...

This first card uses the new Relax stamp set, a FABULOUS new beach / tropical set of 19 stamps that is sure to fill a big void in your stamp collection!! I used Kraft and Chocolate Chip CS along with printed digi papers from the Color me Crazy kit by Melissa Bennett (Sweet Shoppe). I finished it up with some messy stitching. Isn't it fun!?
In addition to the New Release Spotlights going on over on the Verve Blog this week, Julee has cooked up a whole group of Beach Party Release Week Challenges for even more chances to win Verve prizes!! My next card is specifically for the Color Challenge.

I used the new Hibiscus Plain Jane (in addition to a sentiment from an as-yet-to-be-peeked new release, so shhhh!!) on my card along with retired DP from Scenic Route. I stamped the hibiscus image (isn't is YUMMY!?!?) 3 times and colored with Copics to match the color challenge and my printed papers, then cut them out and popped them up on dimensionals. I added some stitching and my sentiment and this simple Mother's Day card was done!!

Don't forget to join us for our Beach Party Release Party Friday night at 9 PM Eastern!! See you there!! Aloha!
