So is anyone ready for another contest? We've got some exciting new changes going on at Verve, and to celebrate we're holding another card contest. The winner will be our Guest Designer for the month of June. If you love Verve stamps and think you've got what it takes, this is your chance to strut your stuff. To enter, here are the rules...


1. Make a card using the sketch.
2. The card must be a long card.
3. You must use at least one Verve Visual stamp on the card.
4. Submit a link to an online photo of your card by April 30, 2008. Please submit links as a comment on this post.

The contest winner will be announced on May 2 and will be our Honored Guest for the month of June. If you need a little somethin’ somethin’ to rev up your engines, be sure to check out the samples below from our brand spankin' new Design Team members. Check out the Verve Gallery to see what the rest of our talented Design Team did with the sketch.

Yep, that's right! We've been busy here at Verve, and we're excited to introduce you to the four newest faces of Verve.

Amy Sheffer comes to us from Pickled Paper Designs. She has a unique style that's both clean and crisp, and well layered and embellished. It's always a treat to see what Amy's been up to in her studio, and I know you're going to enjoy her Verve creations just as much as we do.

Carole Burrage comes to us from her blog, Mother's Little Helper. Her fabulous flair for color and design combine to produce the most uniquely original designs. And if the amazing eye candy wasn't enough, this chickadee has a fabulous sense of humor. I know you'll love checking out her projects as well as tuning in to her witty blog posts.

Susan Liles comes to us from her blog, Susiestampalot. Her fantastic creations wowed us when she guest designed for Verve in November, and we're so excited to bring her back as a permanent member of the team. Her projects have amazing dimension, are perfectly embellished, and are always fresh and fabulously fun to look at it.

Laura Fredrickson comes to us from her blog, Scrapnextras. Laura has a crisp, clean style that is always perfectly executed. Her creations are a joy to behold with a classy feel and beautiful embellishments. We know you're going to enjoy each and every one of her creations in the coming months.

We also want to congratulate Shannan Teubner who has accepted a position as our new Design Team coordinator. She's an amazing design team member and we're so excited to have her helping to keep us all organized.

Be sure to check out their blogs, as they'll be doing a little bit of celebrating Verve Style this week. :)
