Light Tomorrow With Today

Happy Monday! If you missed out on Verve's release party last Friday, be sure to check out the Verve store for all the new goodies! Today, we're having an After Party over on the Verve blog, a special post featuring the Divas' favorite cards from this release. So much eye candy all in one post -- check it out!

One of my favorite cards from this release features the Light Tomorrow Plain Jane. Beautiful sentiment (die-cut with Verve's Classy Label die), gorgeous font, lovely The Girls' Paperie papers (Jubilee collection), some crinkled and dyed seam binding, and a fabulous layout from Tosh's Viva La Verve Sketch Challenge ... this card practically made itself!

Also, today begins a new "Get Your Diva On" contest -- your chance to strut your stuff for a shot at a future guest designer spot! Maureen is our challenge host this month, and has come up with something really fun -- Pretty Purse Plastic, where your challenge is to use gift cards as your inspiration. Check out all the details HERE.

Julee is including a fabby goody bag with each purchase over $75!!  Awesome new Verve stamps AND free papercrafting doesn't get much better than that!!

You won't want to miss the July 2011 Stamp Collection!  All three brand new sets (Small Phrases, New Mercies, & Words Cannot Express) and 3 new Plain Janes (Light Tomorrow, Philippians 1:6, & Life is Good) are all bundled together at a 15% discount!  Prices are good through July 31st, while supplies last.

I love those colors, this is really good together!!

Julee (Vervegirl) said...

Oh my goodness, Amy! I think I need to invent a whole new word to describe this card, because gorgeous just doesn't cut it! First of all those papers are to die for ... that strip of music at the bottom made my heart skip a beat... the shabby stitching is perfection and the rose/ribbon/twine accent is a decadent bit of icing on the cake! I think I could just get lost in this card. Don't mind me if I just hang out here for a while! {grin}
