Groovin' and another chance to win!

Welcome to the third and final day of the Verve Previews! Today we're showing you samples of Feeling Groovy, which will be available at the Verve Store on Wednesday, June 25th.

From Cyndi Bundy:
Cyndi was our sketch challenge winner last month, and she won the opportunity to be our honored guest for this release. This is one of my favorite cards she totally cracked me up! Stay tuned to see all of her wonderful creations later this week!

From Amber Hight:

The sentiments in the new release “Feeling Groovy” are among my favorites released by Verve thus far! My husband will be deploying in the next week or two and this set is going to come in VERY handy for the next six months! The sentiment I chose for this card is one that I say to him often. We’ve only been married for four years (five in September!) so it’s not like we’ve been married long enough to say “if I had to choose again after all these years, I’d still choose you!”. The sentiment has a very different meaning to me. We’ve been separated for at least 3 months of every year for almost the whole seven years we’ve been together. This sentiment says to him that if I had known back when we got married how often we’d be apart, he’s still the one I’d choose. Okay, enough sappiness, I know you’d rather know what supplies I used to make this card, right?:)

Stamps: Feeling Groovy, Filigree Fantasy, Petals and Stems (Verve Visual)

Ink: More Mustard (SU!), Versafine Onyx Black

Paper: Papaya Puree Light and Papaya Puree Dark (Prism)

Accessories: So Saffron ribbon (SU!), Paper Piercer (SU!), Dimensionals (SU!), Star Dust Stickles (Ranger), Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Folder (Provocraft), Square Scallop Nestibilities (Spellbinders)

From Carole Burrage:
I've said it before and I'm sure I'll say
at least a couple hundred more times: Verve Visual has the BEST sentiments in stamping! I'm especially excited about the new 'Feeling Groovy' set -- so many great song lyrics in one nifty set. And the timing could not be more

We just got back from Las Vegas, and my sweet husband arranged for us to see 'LOVE,' the Cirque du Soleil's tribute to The Beatles. The show was phenomenal, and being huge Beatles' fans ourselves made it even more magical. I wanted to tell him thank you,
and how much it meant to me that after 15 years of marriage, he still takes the time to think "Carole would really enjoy this..." and make special things happen. So I paired this adorable Elzybells UK image that had yet to see ink with the very fitting 'I want to hold your hand.' Wouldn't you agree that there are few things in life that are sweeter than holding the hand of someone you love?

From Charmaine Ikach:
Being a musical person, I LOVED the Feeling Groovy set when I first saw it. I honestly cannot use one of these sentiments without singing the song that the sentiment is from! LOL I thought one of these folded sock hop skirts would go perfectly with the "I Want To Hold Your Hand" sentiment. Who needs a card with a recorded song when the sentiment makes you sing it yourself? :)

From Jen del Muro:

I love the sentiments that Julee (creative genius that is Verve) comes up with for stamps. Often they are fun and quirky, other times, just perfect that that "just because" card. I paired the flowers from the Feeling Groovy set with the "With Love, From Me To You" sentiment. I like that this particular sentiment can be used on a card to a relative, a good friend, for sympathy or to your love.

How would you like to win this stamp set? Here's your chance! Leave a comment on this post by 10 pm MT (midnight ET) on June 24 with your answer to this question:

What song lyric would you like to have as a stamp?

Check back on Wednesday, June 25, when we'll announce the lucky winner and reveal all the new sets in full!


  1. Hmmm--that's a great idea, using a song for a stamp. How about "You are so beautiful", or "Hunka Hunka Burnin love" (gotta love that one) or even "Amazing grace"......I think I could go on forever here. What a great question. I can hardly wait to see what others have to say. BTW--just love your stamps....can hardly wait for the release.

  2. How about I "You light up my life".

  3. 'Lucy in the sky of Diamonds', 'Glamourous', 'Imagine'

  4. Looks like another fun set! How about "And I think to myself ...what a wonderful world"
    or "Can you feel the love tonight"

  5. I think "You Light Up MY Life" or "Groove Thing" would be great sentiments! Love the previews, I can't wait for the release!

  6. There are so many songs that would be wonderful as stamps. I love the lyrics from the "Amazed" by Lonestar. It's just a wonderful song.

  7. I am always looking for "appreciation" type stamps. If I had a stamp that said "Great is Thy Faithfulness" I would put it to much use. It could also be turned into an encouragement card for someone going through a rough time. Love that song, by the way. :)

  8. How about "You're the one that I want ..." from Grease?

    I like the "Hunka, Hunka" suggestion. ;-)

  9. Either "love is a battlefield" by Pat Benatar or "girls just wanna have fun" by Cindi Lauper
    TRace g

  10. You Lift Me Up is one of my favorites this week. Can't wait to get these sets! ~chris

  11. How about the song from my favorite movie. "I've had the time of my life...and I owe it all to you." I could definitely use that after a great night out with hubby. I am really excited about these new sentiments. I agree with the person who said "Verve has the best".

  12. What a great idea! I would love to see "Baby, kiss me" or "girls just wanna have fun".

  13. I cannot wait to get my hands on this set--and to win it would be the ultimate coup! A stamp set using the title, and some of the lyrics of the song "I Hope You Dance" released by LeeAnn Womack a few years back would be wonderful! Thanks, Rae C.

  14. Here are a few of mine....
    Piano Man
    Close to Me
    Girls Just Want To Have Fun (Isn't this what stampers do?)
    Dreaming My Dreams With You
    Love all the sneek previews and this little bird card is just to cute for words. Thanks for a chance.

  15. These cards are all awesome! Song lyric are a great idea for stamps.
    I could have danced all night.
    You had me from hello.
    Thank God, I'm a woman.
    Till the end of time.
    I could probably come up with lots more.

  16. Cool idea! I love that song "My Wish" by Rascal Flatts

  17. Boy this is a hard one. There are so many-How about " you are my sunshine"

    Michelle T

  18. Browsing my iTunes I found quite a few.
    Forever's as far as I'll go (Alabama)

    Only Love Can Break A Heart (Gene Pitney) the next line is:
    only love can mend it again

    You Decorated My Life (Kenny Rogers)
    Great set can't wait to see them ALL!

  19. OH I am loving this stamp set... I have always been an 80s music fan so I think that the lyrics that I would like to see are: "You really got me..." Great work ladies :) I am a beginning stamper and I am lucky that there are so many talented and creative people out there for me to draw inspiration from. Have a great week!

  20. How about
    What's the story, Morning Glory??

    it by Oasis- I aways say that line

  21. "I am strong... I am invinceable... I AM WOMAN!

  22. I would love to win this set! Ican think of all kinds of ways to use these wonderful sentiments!

  23. What a fabulous set of samples! I love each one more than the last - wow! for a song lyric on a stamp, hmmmmm that's tricky. How about "I get by with a little help from my friends" - has that been used yet??

  24. Oh man, I NEEEEEEEED that set! That is soooo great! I definitely think they should have one that says "I get by with a little help from my friends" and also "I love you oh so well" or "you light up my life" (wouldn't that be cute with a happy little lightbulb?)

  25. How about "Fly like an eagle"

  26. It was hard to come up with a song. But how about "I love you a bushel and a peck". My grandmother used to sing that song to me and now I sing it to my daughter. I would love to get my hands on some new Verve stamps.


  27. Love the "girls just wanna have fun" idea! I'd like something from the song Thank You along the lines of "Thank you for giving me the best day of my life".

  28. Love those birds, Cyndi!

    GREAT card!!!

  29. "Shake your booty"!! hehe, not that i listen to KC and the Sunshine band hardly every, that song just popped into my head! could be a good sentiment for a "celebrate" card?

  30. What fabulous sentiments. I'd love to have a "you are so beautiful" sentiment. I love to sing that song! These are just great. I'm more excited about these than I have been about any other release!

  31. "Give me just a little more time...
    and our love will surely grow"
    If not familiar with Carolina beach music (and shame on you if you are NOT!) this is my favorite song by General Johnson and Chairmen of the Board.

  32. oh don't get me started LOL -
    "if your friends are there then everything's alright" = Elton John -Friends
    "you can't always get what you want" (for the outside of a card, then) "but if you try sometimes you just might find you get what you need" Rolling Stones

    okay i better quit it - i'm have a major flashback

  34. Great blog ! I'd love to see "Have a Holly Jolly Christmas".

  36. Great ideas everyone!! How about:

  37. I would love to see the following verse in a stamp...
    I've found out a reason for me
    To change who I used to be
    A reason to start over new
    and the reason is you.
    I sing this to my son almost everyday. He is my reason for always striving to be a better person, have a better purpose, make a difference.

  38. How about weather stuff like: Singing in the rain and You are my sunshine. And spiritual like: Great is Thy Faithfulness and Amazing Grace. Thanks for sharing!

  39. I would love this set. Here are some of my favorites

    Thanks for the chance to win!!!

    God bless

  44. I suggest Love, love changes everything for starters, but You are my Sunshine is good as well.

  45. I'm a big fan of Broadway, but I think that this quote from the Phantom is really beautiful.

    Say you'll share with me one love, one lifetime . . .

  46. Groovey kind of love- Phil Collins
    Material Girl- Madonna (I think all of us know someone to send that sentiment to!

  47. Lots of song titles and lyrics running through my head right now... I think I'll go with "I Could Not Ask For More" as it was the song I danced to with my husband at our wedding...

  48. Ohhhhhhh, *song* sentiments! I like it! I love it!

    How 'bout

    "don't worry, be happy!"

  51. this seems like such a great universal set. thanks for the chance to win it.

  52. How about 'hopelessly devoted to you" Yeah, kinda sappy. Or, how 'bout 'wild thing, you make my heart sing'. Maybe 'you're beautiful'

  53. I just can't seem to come up with a song lyric so I will just pick everyone that has already been mentioned. Great cards.

  54. I would also like to see a few old classics from Nat King Cole:

    "Unforgettable... that's what you are to me." (Good for a thinking of you card)

    "I love you just the way you are" (Barry White)
    "Where you lead... I will follow" (Carole King)

    "How Sweet it is... to be loved by you" (The Four Tops"

    Or how about that 60's hit "You got me and baby, I've got you .....I've got you babe!" (could also be a baby or adoption card!)

  55. How about "Where you lead, I will follow" or "I feel the earth move"

  56. Wow! such great ideas already listed...How about "This is Us" by Mark Knopfler or "Just Another Day in Paridise" Phil Vasser

  66. "Wild Thing! You Make My Heart Sing!"

  67. 'In the arms of an angel" would be the song lyric I would love to have. Loving the stamps :) Your designers make wonderful cards.

  68. I'm not coming up with anything that hasn't been suggested already, so I'll just say thanks for the great sneak peeks!

  69. Eric Clapton's "Wonderful Tonight" is my absolute favorite song ever, so I would LOVE to see this part of the lyrics on a stamp!!....
    I feel wonderful because I see
    The love light in your eyes.
    And the wonder of it all
    Is that you just don't realize how much I love you.

  70. This is a hard question! I have no idea! I can't really think of anything. I really like what someone else suggested though, "there's no love like your love". That would make a great sentiment.

  71. I didn't read thru all the comments, so these may be repeats:
    Wild Thing
    I Can Only Imagine (Mercy Me)
    Lean On Me

    It's not a song that I know of, but I would like a stamp that says Live Out Loud too

  72. Loving all the previews.

    How about Amazed or Amazed by you!!
    MY fav song!

  73. "Uptown Girl" (Any of Billy Joel's song lyrics)
    "You look wonderful tonight" (Eric Clapton)

    Looking forward to tomorrow! Heather J.

  74. Hmm...good question. How about "Butterfly Kisses"? There's probably already one of those, but oh so many possibilities! That father-daughter dance, butterfly kisses on mama's cheek. Very fun!!!! Oooohhhh.... "I can only imagine" would be another good one.

  75. You're the Remedy - David Crowder

    I'll be by your side - 10th Ave North
    I am captivated - Shawm McDonald

    I want to fall in love with you - Jars of Clay
    The Day is brighter here with You - David Crowder
    You make everything glorious!- David Crowder

    Can you tell I'm on a spiritual kick.. Its hard to find good spiritual sentiments

  76. Oh I can't wait to see the new sets! I would love to see "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic" as a stamp. That would be fun on scrapbook pages or cards for friends.. I am a big Police fan (saw them on their reunion tour which was pretty amazing) so any of their lyrics would make me happy!

  77. Song lyrics for sentiments instantly connects. How about "I'm not a superwoman" or "I can show you the world".

  78. How about "I Get By With a Little Help From My Friends"? That was our class song in high school :-) It was the 70s, what can I say?

  79. How 'bout You Keep Me Hangin' On by The Supremes - or I Heard It Through The Grapevine by Marvin Gaye (i think).

    Oh, how 'bout a couple of Toby Keith's tunes like I Wanna Talk About Me, I Love This Bar or Who's Your Daddy

  80. "I'm singing in the rain"
    "Raindrops are falling on my head"

  81. One of my favorite lyrics is "all you need is love"

  82. I would love to have a stamp that says; "you and me, we've got a groovy kind of love." from the Phil Collins song. I love the word groovy and it's such a cute little phrase. Melissa

  83. I've thought of a some other lyrics that I think would make good stamps:
    "You want to make a memory"
    "It all comes down to love"
    "Thank God for you"

  84. My *baby* girl is growing up and growing away - so, I keep hearing: "How can 18 years just get up and walk away," which is kind of sad (and not to do with love for mate) but definitely how I feel!!

  85. I think "You've Got The Right Stuff, Baby" by New Kids On The Block would be awesome. I'm still a fan & will be screaming the loudest at their concert this fall--lol!!

  86. "Let me call you sweetheart" would be a nice one. Can't wait for the release.

  87. What fun! How about...
    Somewhere Over the Rainbow
    Don't Worry, Be Happy
    Precious Memories
    She Came in Through the Bathroom Window (maybe not)
    Hello, Goodbye
    Have a Little Talk with Jesus
    I'm a Believer

    I don't want to stop, but I must!
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  88. I'd like to see "I love the way you love me" (John Michael Montgomery) on a stamp - it was our wedding song and a great sentiment!

  89. I'm excited to see the sentiments and new releases in their entirity! I'm thinking of "Lean on Me" or "Pretty in Pink".

  90. My favorite song right now is "Falling in Love in the Coffeeshop". Every time I see that diamond comercial I just sigh!


  91. Wow, there are some good ones here. What a great collection. How about:
    You're in my heart, you're in my soul...You'll be my breath should I grow old...You are my lover, you're my best friend...You're in my soul... by Rod Stewart
    Ok, now I'm singing all these tunes. Can't wait for the release to see all the great stamps.

  92. Love these stamps!

    'You make me feel like dancing'
    'Crocodile Rock'

  93. This set looks great!!! I would love to see....

    "When I think about Angels, I think about you" - by Jamie O'Neil.

    I think this phrase would be great for a card or a scrapbook page!!

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  94. This is my favorite line from the Rolling Stones song:
    "Till the next time that we say goodbye, I'll be thinking of you."

    I love this saying and used it as my senior quote and currently have it below my signature on SCS. Can't wait to see the set!

  95. Wow! Love the sneak peeks and all the suggestions. I know this has been mentioned but I think Girls Just Want to Have Fun would be a great sentiment to have. Thanks for the chance to win.

  96. I think I would have to pick "Fearfully and Wonderfully Made".


  97. I would love the words "Amazing Grace" that song...brings tears to my eyes everytime I hear it.

    kim3timemom@yahoo dot com

  98. I would love to see "God only knows what I'd be without you" I am on a big anniversary kick right now can you tell? LOL :)

  99. Love this set. How about, "Wild thing...You make my heart sing."

  100. How about "Lean on me"? That would definitely be one that I would use!

  101. Wild thing, you make my heart sing!

  102. Finally! I've always asked for some song lyric stamps! "I've been waiting... for a 'set' like this, to come into my life... I'd love to see some Dean Martin/Andy Williams era lyrics, too *hint, hint*. "We're after the same rainbow's end" "wherever you're going, I'm going your way"

    "You are my sunshine, my only sunshine"

    "I can't give you anything but love, baby"

    I'll have lyrics running through my head all night now!

  103. I love old movies so how about "Somewhere over the rainbow, blue birds fly" or "Tiptoe through the tulips" or "Shine On, Shine On Harvest Moon","Everything's gonna be all right(Bob Marley). And "Don't worry , be happy!" Also, some lines from hymns would be nice like Amazing Grace, How Great thou Art, or newer songs or choruses. There are so many to chose from. Thanks for the chance to share and maybe win! :D

  104. Wow! I LOVE the lines you've sampled! And I am loving the suggestions too! I'm a big Beatles fan and I too, love Broadway stuff. There's a ton of things I've commented wanting before and not a single thing comes to mind today! But this set is going on my list! Thanks!

  105. This was a hard one for me, because several of the ones that came to mind are already on here. So the only other one I can think of is "I am a Suvivor" By Reba McIntire. Thanks for the chance to win, I am looking forward to the release.

  106. Ok, checking the ol' ipod . . what about "What a Feeling", "I Hope You Dance", or "You've Got The Look", "Hold on to the Memories"
    Great idea for sentiments.

  107. Nice work!!!
    Those cards are incredible. What a fun idea... I think that I would love to see "Love Life" as a stamp set... His song:

  108. I love this would be awesome to win it. Thanks for the chance. I think I would like to see lyrics from the song "I Cross My Heart" by George Strait. I think either of the following two parts of the song would be perfect sentiments for a card:

    You will always be the miracle
    That makes my life complete

    and this:

    As we look into the future
    It's as far as we can see
    So let's make each tomorrow
    Be the best that it can be

  109. Wow, so many titles and what a great prize to receive. Here's an
    old one that goes "Fly me to the moon, let me sit among the stars",
    or "Baby Love, oh Baby Love" by
    Diana Ross.

  110. What about Louis Armstrong, "what a wonderful World" (could be used for many different occasions and themes. Oh and it was I think of when I think of my Grandmother!
    Diane Cooper

  111. I would like to see "I am the Luckiest" from the song Luckiest by Ben Folds Five. It was my wedding song and I absolutely love the lyrics.

    Or "Groove is in the Heart"

    Thanks for the chance to win! Love the sentiments from this set.

  112. Fabulous cards everyone! A lyric...
    Don't worry, be happy!


    Probably too late to win, but I just HAD to throw that one it!!


  114. As always... you gals did AMAZING jobs on the cards... you make me want every single stamp set Verve has... (I HAVE almost every one Verve has... and it is time to shop again I see!)

    Beautiful work. (The dress card cracked me up... super creative!)

  115. I love Amazing Grace, but to be really really sappy, how about "You are the Wind Beneath my Wings." Hanky, anyone??

  116. Here are a couple I'd like to have:
    "Here Without You" 3 Doors Down
    "Far Away" by Nickelback

    My DH suggested some too:
    "Baby Got Back" by Sir Mixalot
    "Play That Funky Music" by WildCherry

    I'm sure, given a little more time, I could come up with a lot more!
