New Release Spotlight - Day Three



Hey there!  It's Charmaine and today I get to introduce another new Verve set to you!  This set is called BlessingsBlessings is a set of 12 including wonderful sentiments and a few flourishes!  It's just beautiful!  You'll especially love this set if you're Irish!  :)  So let's see what the Divas have to share with you!

From Diva Laurie Schmidlin

Amazingly uplifting sentiments, beautiful fonts, & stunning images that coordinate perfectly...yes, Julee has done it again! Blessings is one of those "must-have" sets that can be used to create one-of-a-kind projects for so many different occasions! I just adore the unique flourishes that accompany the sentiments...ones that I will be reaching for over and over!



From Diva Jen del Muro:



I love what some refer to as "wedding season." All the pretty fresh colors and love in the air just makes for the perfect inspiration for a wedding card. This uses the soon to be released set, Blessings. Not only does this set have wedding wishes, but can be used for several other occasions. I look forward to making many more cards using this very versatile and fun set.



From Diva Shannan Teubner:


Hey, y'all! I'm so glad to finally be back with my fellow divas to showcase the upcoming release for April. Like I told Charmaine, it was good to finally get back into my stamp room and get messy...and boy did I!

I have been in love with the new Blessings set since I first laid eyes on it. This particular stamp in the set is especially close to my heart...our choir sang it many times in high school, and it is very special to me. My choir director is retiring this year, so I decided to make a special little gift for him to display in his office. Using the front page of a Basic Grey chipboard book as my starting point, I added Jillibean Soup papers, acrylic paint, jute, and buttons to create a wall hanging that would work just as well in a kitchen or bathroom as it would in an office or study. Now the hard part...letting it go!
 
 
 
From Diva Charmaine Ikach:
 

As you know from a previous Verve set, Beautiful You, this is one of my absolute favorite sentiments.  I was SO excited to see it in this set in another font!  This sentiment has always been a reminder to for me to "not sweat the small stuff."  Life is too short!  I also used the Hibiscus Plain Jane paired with one of the flourishes from Blessings.  I used Glossy Accents on the flower, so it really jumps out at you! 



From Guest Diva Christi Thorsen:

 
Blessed is a word that really describes me right now. I have a wonderful family, I am able to stay at home with my boys and do what I love, and I'm a guest Diva for my all-time favorite stamp companies. That's why I'm so excited to be showing off this gorgeous new set called Blessings. My stepdad recently lost his uncle so this set came at the perfect time. I based the colors of my card off of my new Marrakech dp from Basic Grey. I stamped my sentiment in Elegant Eggplant ink and one of the gorgeous flourishes from this set in Baja Breeze ink on either side of my sentiment, and cut it out using my circle Nestabilities and Cuttlebug. I cut out three panels from different patterns from the Marrikech pack, sponged the edges in Colorbox Chestnut Roan ink, and matted them onto PTI white cardstock. I added a strip of navy cardstock across the card and added some gray organdy ribbon and some silver beads along the outer edge of the circle to frame the sentiment a bit more. You are going to LOVE the elegance of this set. The flourishes and sentiments are just amazing.
