Verve's September Release Sneak Peak- Day 1

Good morning! And welcome to the first day of sneak peaks from Verve! I am still absolutely tickled pink that I get to bring you all these fun previews. Today, the Divas and myself are bringing you peaks of two new sets that will be released on Friday- Swan Song and Wishing You. Both of these are such beautiful sets, done in Julee's fantastic artistic style and beautiful fonts.

I loved having the chance to play right away with Wishing You. This is solely a sentiment set with the beginning words of "wishing you" and lots of phrases to end your wish. I can totally see myself using this set for everything from weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, and get wells! So versatile! Love it!

For my card, I decided to feature the first half, "wishing you." I made a little 4x4 card to keep it simple and added some pretty layers around the sentiment to make it really pop off of the page. Can I just mention that I really like how simply I could incorporate other Verve sets into cards with these sentiments?! I whipped out my Beautiful Kindness butterflies (and a flourish inside) and added them to the card as well. Lots of stickles, both turquoise and star dust, surround and cover different elements of the card. You can't see it (it's inside and I forgot to take a picture of it before it got dark), the other half of the sentiment says, "the best day ever."

There's tons more being sneaked over at the Verve blog, even a little giveaway! And definitely make sure to stop by Verve's forum on Splitcoast Stampers for lots of Release Week Challenges!
