Spring Fling: Sneak Peek 4 Let It Shine

Happy Spring Fling, Verve fans! It's Mercy, and I am here to sneak another stamp set for you. I know you all are having a ball with all of these challenges and sneak peeks at the new sets that will be released later on tonight! I am here to show you the set called "Let It Shine". This fabulous 4X8 set boasts of 5 various sunshine-like shapes, and 7 beautiful sentiments in clean and whimsical fonts. You are going to be overjoyed with the versatility of this fun and fantastic set!

From the uber-talented Diva, Charmaine:
I am SUPER excited for this Verve release. I get excited for every release, really, but I especially love this one because there is a lot of sunshine this release! I have loved previous sentiments like "Hey there, Sunshine!" and this set, Let It Shine, is all about sunshine! Wonderful "sunny" sentiments accompanied by suns of different sizes and designs make this a must-have set in my opinion! For my card, I chose to use one of the sun images stamped twice, cut out and layered. I used one of the smaller images to create sunflowers and a scene. Some faux stitching, Stardust Stickles and jute provided the perfect finishing touches for this happy card!
From Diva.....ME! :)

Month after month, Julee's designs bring a smile to my face and sunshine to my soul. Gorgeous fonts and phrases, and whimsical-yet-elegant images that show her unique and impeccable sense of style. I started with a Kraft Cardstock base, then created a mountain scene by tearing a piece of Kraft Cardstock and sewing it to a piece of patterned paper from the Love Me Do collection by My Mind's Eye. I stamped the large and small suns in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, then colored each with Copic Sketch Markers. I added some Crystal Stickles to the larger image for some sparkle, and attached Silver Brads to the corners of the focal panel. The sentiment was stamped in the same black ink, the suns were cut out, and attached to the panel using Dimensionals.

Stayed tuned for one more challenge at 7:00 pm! Be sure to jump on over to the SCS Forum @ 7:00 Mountain for our Spring Fling Chat where you will see more sneak peeks and be able to chatter with the Divas!

Can't wait to see you there!
