November 2013 Verve Release

There are some brand new Verve releases today and we're celebrating with a blog hop!   Julee has created a fabulous, new Plain Jane, an adorable Christmas set, and several Scripture Medley sets for you to check out over at the Verve Store.  

If you have come from ) Laurie W's blog, you are right on track.  If you just happened upon the hop, there is a full hop list noted below.

The current VLV sketch was perfect for showcasing this adorable little bird.  I paper pieced his outfit with Echo Park's 'Tis The Season papers and added one of the patterned seam bindings from the Black Beauty Ribbon Collection.  The sentiment is on a die cut from the Flag It  set.  The glitter snow he is standing on is a bit hard to see, but it's there, honest!

My second card uses the new Every Heart Plain Jane.  Love this sentiment and all it stands for!  Pulled out some of my hoarded Lost and Found MME Christmas papers, used the Tagged Rectangle Die for the sentiment panel and over stamped the sentiment with the cross from Richly Blessed.  The heart is from the Heart Quartet die set and the yummy polka dotted ribbon is from the Polka Dot Basics ribbon collection. 



All the new sets are available over at the Verve Store today.  In addition, take a little time to check out Verve's Thanksgiving Sale (25% off all stamps and dies) which starts today!  The perfect time to do a little Christmas shopping for yourself and/or for you family on your behalf wink, wink!

Both cards are very well done. The black matted patterned paper panel layers look great against the white cardstock on the first card. The second card displays wonderful warm tones and a very interesting layout. The bow is beautiful and adds a nice touch.

LOVE that second card!! The sentiment is wonderful esp super-imposed over the cross in the bg. Love how you used a heart in the design which goes so well with the sentiment, but is rarely seen in a Christmas card. Love the loopy Christmas tree pp, also. Wonderful card!!!
