Sneak Previews and a Chance to Win!

It's day three of sneak peeks of the new releases for Verve Visual. Today we are featuring two of the four new sets being released tomorrow, Friday, May 16. Be sure to see the end of this post to see how you can win one of these sets!

From Carole Burrage:
I love wreaths, and have lots of different ones I hang on my front door depending on the season. There are a couple of times a year, though (Easter to July; August to Fall) when my door is sadly bare. As I sat down to play with Verve's delightful new Petals & Stems set, I looked at the fun blossoms and polka-dot centers and decided to create the wreath I was wishing for out of paper. Here are the results! I think I could probably get my florist to whip something similiar up; now to just get someone to paint my door a cheery blue gingham... ; )


From Jen del Muro:
It's that time of year when all of us moms start thinking about teacher gifts. While my daughter is only in a Mother's Day Out program, I still want to do something nice for her "teachers." I plan on giving them each a set of cards using the Fluttering By set and some fun DP.


From Susan Liles:
For my sneak peek this month, I chose to do a project instead of a card. I actually made this simple and quick little gift card holder for my mom for Mother's Day and used the new Verve set called Petals and Stems to create a band to hold it shut. It's a great floral set with many possibilities including layering different sizes of these fun and hip flowers, not to mention it includes this sweet sentiment--one of my favorites ever! The flowers are super easy to cut out, so this is a great set to get your vervacious 3-D flower mojo going!!



Want to be the proud owner of these two sets?
All you need to do is leave a comment on this post with the answer to the following question by 10PM MT (midnight ET) on May 15. Then be sure to check back tomorrow, when we’ll announce the lucky winner and reveal the new Verve sets!
In your comment, be sure to answer the question that follows...

These stamp sets that are featured today scream "Summer" to me. Summer is my favorite season by far because of the warm weather and all the outdoor fun to be had. Plus in Texas, we have Sno-Cone stands that pop up everywhere. YUM-O! So I ask you this... What is your favorite month and why?

  1. My favorite month has always been August, because of me!!! My b-day is that month and it has always been exciting. Summer is turning to fall, my fave and football is getting started. Plus my son was born in Aug and my sister got married last year on my b-day!!!

  2. I love all of these samples! My favorite month is October! I love the fall..the color changes, the weather change, and the decorating! I love pumpkins and scarecrows and hayrides! Halloween is so much fun too!!

    I know #1 never gets picked, but I love the VV stamps and the designers are fabulous so I had to post anyway!

  3. My favorite season is fall. I'm not sure why, but I love the fall. To narrow down even more, I love November. Probably because of Thanksgiving and family time. My birthday on the 30th just ends it all nicely.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Love these sets! That sentiment is a must have! My favorite month is October because I love fall. The leaves are changing colors, the temperatures have cooled off but are still comfortable and lots of art festivals to go to.

  5. My favorite month is April. The start of new life here in the Northeast.

  7. Wow, I am early. Cute polka dot butterflies and the flowers. Cute ideas by the design team.
    My favorite month is January. Growing up in India, tropical mild winter, sitting around fires. We even have a holiday where we collect all the junk from around the house and burn it and use that fire to make hot water to use for the baths. Love those memories.

    ReplyDelete
  8. My favourite month is May - the long winter is well and truly gone, the plants have all come back and the leaves are back on the trees. Its warm, the birds are singing and flowers are everywhere. Its the start of the summer - what is not to love?

    ReplyDelete
  9. My favorite month is March, not only because my birthday is in that month... but it breaks up the monotny after all the holiday hubbub. Spring is around the corner, and weather is one of the best in the city. So, that's why....

    ReplyDelete
  10. I love May because it is the start of Spring (at least here) where the flowers are blooming and the grass is green, it's a time of new birth. I love all the little baby animals that are being born. It always gets me in the mood to change something about my self, a "re-birth" of something of my own. I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  33. These are fabulous cards. I can't wait to see the sets! My favorite month is May. The leaves are starting to come back on the trees (yes, we live in a cold area) and you can actually hear the wind rustiling through the leaves!

  36. Love the flower set can't wait to get that one it looks great. I would say my favorite month is April - the weather is warming up and I just love spring with all the trees blooming and the flowers coming back and the grass getting green - at least in Virgina where I live that is the case.

    ReplyDelete
  37. June is my favorite month for many reasons. Growing up in Colorado, June was the first month when you wouldn't get snow (usually) :) My garden that I planted in May is starting to flourish, the weather is so beautiful and everything is green - towards the end of summer everything starts to turn brown because it's so dry here. thanks for the opportunity! All these sets seem really great!

    ReplyDelete
  38. My favorite month is September, first it's my birthday month and you seem to get back into a normal routine, kids back in school, the weather is still warm but not hot and the nights are cool.

Thanks for the chance to win some awesome blog candy!

    ReplyDelete

  47. I usually LOVE May... not only is it my birthday month but it is normally warm enough that I don't have to heat with my wood stove, but still the heat of summer hasn't hit yet (this year I am STILL heating UGH!!!)

    ReplyDelete
  48. My favorite month is July! That's when my birthday is - I always have a bbq and a pool party for my birthday! Plus fireworks are only a few days after my birthday so that's always lots of fun.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I am so loving these previews. The floral wreath card is just gorgeous, and I love those butterflies, too!!

    My favorite month is September. The air gets cooler, it's my wedding anniversary month, and we have all the fresh veggies from the garden to enjoy. And because of all those years I spent in school, it always feels like a fresh start. Thanks for sharing :)

  59. It's so hard to pick just one month as my favorite. But I'll go with May. Cause of all the spring colors coming alive after winter. Every thing looks so fresh and new.

  60. I'm sure I won't win, but I LOVE the samples so I had to try. I like June best, for many of the reasons posted already...winter is finally a memory, it's not usually too hot, the flowers are blooming and the kids are off school so it's a leisurely time in our household.

    Thanks for the chance to win... :o)

    ReplyDelete
  61. September is my favorite month. The weather here is just beautiful (not too muggy, not too cool), the leaves are starting to change, and back to school starts. I was in school for many years, and still love all that "back-to-school" brings up in my head (shopping for new books & clothes, seeing friends again).

    ReplyDelete
  62. I just love these new sets and have to have them!

    My favorite month is November. Although I live in ever so hot South Florida, I love the fall and winter months. The changing of the leaves, the cooler weather and the snow that makes everything look fresh and new. I hope one day to be able to move back into 4 seasons again instead of 1.

    ReplyDelete
  63. OMGosh, I'm just loving all your sneak peeks this week! I think this may finally push me over the edge and I will own some Verve stamps before the end of the month! LOL Really cute samples, girls!

    My favorite month has to be April because it was the month that I was married and because nicer weather starts to arrive here in NE Ohio!

    Thanks for the chance to win! Keep up the awesome designs!

    ReplyDelete
  64. My favorite month is September. I was an odd kid and loved school ... and I am old enough that Sept. was the month school started for the year!

  70. My favorite month is October! The month starts off with my youngest's birthday, then the weather starts to cool and yu can feel Autumn in the air, next is my oldest child's birthday, and the month ends with a HUGE celebration (we call it Halloween-heehee). And of course, October is the beginning of the holiday season too!

    ReplyDelete
  71. I love October! I love how the hot Texas weather starts cooling off. I love football games, the excitement my kids share over Halloween and all of the preparations that go with it, and the anticipation of the upcoming holidays. I also think I am going to LOVE the sets coming out this month! Woohoo!!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Wow! I love the fluttering by set.
    My fave month is May - SPRING!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  73. January is my favorite month! Not only does my birthday fall in this month but it's also the month in which I became a mom for the first time. My oldest son, Jakob, was born two days after I celebrated my day. I couldn't have been more excited and blessed. I love the beginning of a new year!

  80. I have two favorite months. October and December. I loveeee fall--the colors, the cool, crisp weather, halloween cards...the time to pull out your scarves. And December (again the cool, crisp weather) but its also the time to see all the decorations in the store windows and most people are in a festive/giving mood this time of year -- plus the hot cocoa with lots of whipped cream.

    The new sets are beautiful--hope I win. =)

    ReplyDelete
  81. My favorite month is October. The leaves turn such fabulous colors and the air turns so crisp. I wish it could stay that way and avoid Winter. I'm from Michigan, what can I say?

    ReplyDelete
  82. Favourite month...I think it would have to be October. It's still nice enough to play outside (ahem, watch the KIDS play outside!), but with that crisp autumn scent in the air. Added bonus: almost all the mosquitoes are dead by October! lol

    ReplyDelete
  88. Wow, I am in awe of those samples!! If it weren't so hot here (Texas) my favorite month would be July. But, because of the heat - I love fall late October/November when things finally (maybe!) start cooling off around here.

    ReplyDelete

  100. I'm sooo excited for the release of the new stamps! they look awesome!!! My favorite month is June. The weather is gorgeous, snow's gone, flowers are blooming, and it's not the hottest month yet. It's also the longest days of the year, the sun doesn't completely set until after 10pm!

  101. Wow! Those are some beautiful samples!! My favorite month is October, I love all the changing colors and the cooler weather.

    ReplyDelete
  102. I love flowers so there are a few that have me intrigued :)

    Don't know if I have a favorite month. I love Spring as it brings out flowers and colour after a dreary and rainy winter (we get more rain that snow here on the West Coast). May is a nice month as the days are longer and the weather warmer.

    I also love the Fall colours so September is a nice month too - we get Indian Summers here quite often which means a sunny month with the afternoons till being quite warm and the leaves starting to change colour. And I can't forget December as I love Christmas as it means time with family and the celebration of Christ's birth.

    ReplyDelete
  103. I absolutely love June. Typically, we have nothing going on, and our days are spent lying around the pool and enjoying not having anywhere to go or anything important to do. Love that!

    ReplyDelete
  104. My favorite is May - everything blooms and comes to life. I'm in the Chicago area so even April is iffy, but May is beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  105. Favorite questions are tough for me! I love February for a selfish reason though...I love my birthday! But, I am also a teacher and so June is tied or maybe taking first place this year!!

    I love the flowers in this set! Can't wait to get 'em..unless I win 'em - that will be even better!

    ReplyDelete
  106. Great cards, love all the sets!

    My favorite time of the year is October. The leaves are turning, weather is just right. My anniversary is also in Oct. We live in the woods and take long hikes with the dogs. Perfect ending to a wonderful year.

    It would he to be October. I love the fall and so does my husband, we were married in October and loved everything about the crisp weather, the colors and we love the mountains. My daughter's favorite holiday is Halloween so I guess October is just a Family thing!

    ReplyDelete
  108. My favorite month is October when the air is crisp and the leaves are changing colors! I can smell it right now just thinking about it! Heather

    ReplyDelete
  109. Ooh another chance to win! I am crossing my fingers~! My favorite month is probably June. I love summer and it is always late getting to spring where I live, usually by June warm weather has finally arrived and the flowers are blooming...I love it! Thanks!

  110. July! We celebrate birthdays and have family reunions and we're finally in a routine since school let out.

    ReplyDelete
  111. This is weird but my favorite month is May because of what it represents to me. Both of my parents died in May. It was really a hard time. But mother's day comes along in May and I remember all the great times we had and it reminds me how to mother my own children. So I guess what I'm trying to say is that May is a month of great memories and great lessons.

  112. This is a hard one for me! I love the fall and winter time, being that I'm from Southern California and it's usually when we get a break from the hot and dry weather.

    I'd have to say that October is one of my most favorite months. I love the fun that is in the air with Halloween at the end of the month and the kick off to the Holiday season.

  114. My favorite month has got to be May as things are just starting to turn green after a long cold winter in central Manitoba, Canada, the Robins return, the cats will actually go outside and it is time for summer fun!

    My favorite month is May because it's the month my son was born. It's also my husband's birthday and Mother's Day so we all have a day to celebrate. Plus in upstate NY the flowers finally start to bloom and the trees bud. We're right at the base on the Adirondack Mountains so we really get back into the swing of hiking (without snowshoes! :)) as well! These sets are awesome! Can't want to see the others too.

  120. My favorite month is May. Winters here in Saskatchewan are so very long. We usually have snow sometime in October (here to stay in November) and the last snow fall is in April for sure, sometimes May. But thankfully, the April and May snow doesn't stay and (usually) doesn't kill the plants that have come up. I check for weeks to see any little spot of green where I think I remember tulips should be. May comes and finally the memories of green become real. Rise, grow and explode into yellow and orange and pink and red and purple. Flowers bring such joy. Even the tiniest vinca bloom (like the one I found yesterday out front!) "Take joy in the little things"...flowers are the epitome of that saying. And they start, here, in May.
    Blessings

  121. My favorite month is May. I am in total awe at the changes that happen as winter turns to Spring! This year I actually stopped each day to pay attention to the the flowering trees as they turned to leaves. It's just so beautiful to witness such an amazing change in the surroundings.

    ReplyDelete
  122. Wow! This looks like a fabulous set! I love September. The Hot Hot days of summer are over, but its still warm during the day and the nights are starting to have a chill in the air! I love the leaves turning colors. I love fall!

  123. Here in my part of Australia I would have to say May, right now, is my favourite season when the days are crisply cool and there is often a frost that greets us in the morning but the days can still be warm and the quality of light is dreamy, the trees are wearing such beautiful colours and the air is tinged with the scent of peoples wood fires burning in their homes.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Gorgeous samples. Can't wait to see the full set. Looks like a must-have. June is my favorite month and it's right around the corner. Not too hot..not to cold. Can plan day trips without watching the weather channel.

    So excited about these sets! My favorite month is probably April because the rains have (mostly) stopped, the hills are green, the flowers are in bloom on them, and most of all because it *usually* has my favorite holiday, which is Easter (or Resurrection Sunday, as I like to call it). I love the hope of the whole season, and that the earth is in bloom to celebrate! :o)

  128. My favorite month (today) is April because I love to see the rebirth of all nature. Where I live, birds start singing, the days get longer and the flowers and trees are amazing! Also, it's still cool...not hot and sticky humid. Thanks so much for giving the chance to win.

  129. October... when the leaves begin to change to beautiful earth tones, the air is crisp, we can pull out comfy sweaters, and we can turn the oven on! and bake cookies and cupcakes and breads! we don't sweat while standing in the shade and we can cuddle up with our little ones and plan out Halloween activities. Oh, and it's my birthday!

  136. ONe of my absolute favorite months in March - the snow melts and all the flowers start popping their heads out of the soil. I know at this poing winter is basically over. I can still wear a sweater, but also a short sleeve if I want.

    ReplyDelete
  145. This is a toughie!! I would guess my favorite would have to be December. It's my birthday month, and there's Christmas... plus I love to be cold. And top that off with hot chocolate and SHOPPING, and I think we have a winner. :)

    ReplyDelete
  146. My favorite month is definitely October. The air gets crisp, the autumn leaves smell so earthy, and it's the perfect time for walking -- not too hot and not too cold! I also love all the harvest fruits that crop up -- apples, pears, plums -- that make great "comfort" desserts. Yum!

    ReplyDelete
  147. I love the flowers. My favorite month is December because I love Christmas and getting ready for it!!!!!!!

  151. I love the month of September - hence my name is September. I have a wonderful brother that sends me 30 cards for each day during the month of September. He has always said, "If I must endure the name, then each day is a special day during my month."

  152. My favorite month is May. It's finally warm all the time (at least here in Texas), but the temperature has yet to reach its scorching summer heights. The spring rain is letting up and the flowers are blooming. It's a beautiful time!

    ReplyDelete
  153. My fav month is probably December cause I get to see my family (sibs and nieces) more than usual

    ReplyDelete
  154. My favorite month is a toss-up between July and August. It's mainly because I work at a school and I'm off work during the summer, but I also love the sunshine and being in my garden!
    Thanks for a chance at a super prize!!

  160. The cards are wonderful! Thanks for sharing your artistic talents with us! To answer the question, what is your favorite month....I think it has to be October...the fall colors invoke a serene sense in my spirit. I think of the changing seasons and how they truly reflect the cycles of life, knowing that winter is to come, but it will surely be followed by spring and we can marvel in the rebirth of nature (and the rising of the Father). I wrap my hands around a hot cup of coffee and thank God for my life....all year long, but especially when the frost is on the pumpkin.

    Thanks again for sharing and be blessed.

    October is my favorite month. I love the weather (yeah, yeah, it is also my birthday, but I don't think that is the reason). This month is when the crisp chill is in the air and you can crunch leaves as you goon leisurely walks enjoying the foliage, you can start to smell the fireplaces going and apple cider seems to taste better.

  172. My favorite month has to be October. When Mother Earth is getting ready for the winter months, the cool crisp mornings and the trees give on final blast of gorgeous colour before settling down for winter.

  173. These are gorgeous! I would be the proud owner of them for sure!
    My favorite month is December. I love the way the snow and ice look on the trees... I love the smell of the house as I prepare for the holidays. I love shopping and creating things for people I love. It's just the most special month of the year for me.

  178. I love this new set and the examples shown. It is summer!
    My favourite month is May. I met my DH in May, we married in a May and we had a baby in a May. So it holds lots of memories and is also the forerunner for summer and warmth and vacation times.

  179. June is my favorite month. We get to open the pool! I love summer! That is my favorite season. Lots of weddings, my birthday, and just being outside by the pool make it a wonderful month! Love the butterfly and flowres. Can't wait to see the sets.

  180. I have to choose two. . . I love April. Here in Oregon, EVERYTHING is in bloom in April. Days are warm and nights are still chilly. I love the hint of summer around the corner. Then by the end of summer I am so delighted with fall. The colors are spectacular, the smells wonderful and the feeling of weather is just perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  181. My favorite month is October. Fall is my favorite season and by October it's fall. Not too hot, not usually too cold yet, most of the bugs are gone, the leaves are changing...and if that's not enough, my DS #1 was born in October. :-)

  182. What great projects!! My favorite season/time of year is FALL. I love everything about FALL. It's crisp air, the turning leaves, hot cider and HALLOWEEN!! I love getting my kids all dressed up and ready to go!
