To the Moon...

Hello Everyone!!
Its the final day of  VERVE New Release Sneak peek....

This Friday, January 7, Verve is releasing some fabulous new sets and dies! To countdown to the release, we’re putting on a series of mini blog hops Tuesday through Thursday of this week to preview the new sets! And because a new release is something to celebrate, we’ve hidden a prize on one of the participating blogs each day! Just leave a little comment love as you hop around to be entered into a drawing to win that day’s featured stamps! Deadline for comment entries is 6PM Mountain Friday, January 7. Winners will be announced at our release party on Friday night!


Today the Verve spotlight is on a lovely stamp set ~To the Moon  and two coordinating Plain Jane singles.


 I love this set ...its super cute, you all are gonna love it too!!!
I used Sassafras lass DPs and SSS89 sketch for this card.
The cute Monkey peeking..how fun is that!!


Next up is super  fun card...not for Valentine...not girly either!!

Oh Ho!! The giraffe on the top is in lot of trouble...Oh Boy!! Poor guy :(
I double stamped the sentiment just to show that he is wobbly...you all can imagine I had a blast creating this card!! 
Again this a very versatile stamp set...great for boy cards too!!
The bright and fun DP is from Echo Park~ Little Boy collection.
I used JUGS sketch ...

This card is also for Cooking It Up With Katie challenge ( - use a button or 2, ribbon, an animal )



And at last is a girly pretty card...

 I paired up SK010111 sketch and lovely K & Co. Valentine papers for this card...a CAS one!!

Love this Plain Jane sentiment...I stamped it on the Classy label diecut.
I used a little making technique with the classy label stamp from Love Notes to create the label frame.

Next stop is  lovely Maureen's Blog....

If you get lost along the way, you can find the entire list on the Verve blog!


See you all at the Release party....
Friday night, January 7!!!
9PM Eastern, 8PM Central, 7PM Mountain, 6PM Pacific, 4PM Hawaii
