Verve's September Release Sneak Peak- Day 2

Welcome back! Only one more day until the new sets from Verve release! And I'm back with more sneak peaks for you! Today we're peaking two new amazing sets: You Rock and Starstruck. Brace yourselves for an epically long post! :)

I absolutely love BOTH of these sets and know I'll be using them a bunch in the future. I am dreaming of all the background possibilities I can create using some of the stars in Starstruck. And what a fun thank you card or for fun card the sentiment from You Rock makes! Fun, fun!

For my first card, I pulled out the new set, You Rock. I started with the fun fleur de lis covered star, stamped it repeatedly with Versamark and clear embossed them. I stamped the one sentiment in Taken with Teal, and then separately in So Saffron so that I could cut the little star out and pop it up. I also covered the little star in yellow stickles. One more fleur de lis star in So Saffron, and popped it up even higher than the sentiment. Some little white brads finished off the corners nicely.

For even more fun, I used Julee's release challenge from over on the Splitcoast Verve forum! I was slightly inspired by her sketch sample colors. ;) And you can play too!

To play along, just make a card with the provided sketch and upload to your SCS gallery with the challenge keyword {Sep09A} before 6 PM Eastern on Friday, September 18. This will get you entered into a drawing for a $25 Verve Stamps Gift Certificate! If you want even more of a challenge, just participate in all 5 of our September Release Week Challenges for a chance to win our entire release! Check out the Sep ‘09 Master Challenge Thread for all the details! Winners will be announced at our release party Friday night.

Verve Stamps are not required, but we love to see ‘em if you’ve got ‘em!

Phew! Are you still with me?

All of the release party fun starts tomorrow night at 9pm est! Come join us all over on Verve's Splitcoast forum for all of the celebration fun!

  1. Wonderful card! I love the colors and the fleur de lis design in the star. TFS.

  2. Hey Diva....that's my new nickname for you :) Am loving your release cards....and am still a little green you get to play early with them :) I have been in a Verve state of mind all week...hard to stay focussed at work. The kids are slowly learning the routines, but it's slow going...I really like November and on when they know the class so well and are so independent.

  3. Congratulations, Kristina! I love all your cards for the September Release. They are stunning!! :D
