Our spotlighted set today is Happy Place, illustrated by me.  Inspired by Chaitali's illustrations for this release, I set out to create a coordinating set with my own whimsical take on some of the Indian inspired designs I had just been introduced to.  The peacock wings from her set whispered to me that they wanted to be a butterfly, and who was I to tell them they couldn't? After all, everyone deserves a chance to fly.  So wings became butterflies and feathers became leaves and doodled flowers laughed and smiled and nestled into their Happy Place.

Happy Place is a whimsical little set of flowers, butterflies and happiness.  The stemmed flower images and the butterfly each have a coordinating die in the Happy Doodles Die Set (available separately). The sweet sentiments and whimsical images in this set make for easy encouraging cards. Happy Place will retail for $18 and includes 9 clear photopolymer stamps on a 4" x 8" acetate sheet.

The Happy Doodles Die Set is a set of 3 dies that coordinate with images in the Happy Place stamp set.  Each die leaves about a 1/16" border around it's coordinating stamped image and have alignment holes for easy stamp alighnment.  This die set will retail for $21.

And last, but not least, our plain jane for this release is 2 Corinthians 12:9.  Stamped image measures approximately 1-7/8" wide by 1.5" tall and will retail for $3.

I sneaked a little peek of this plain jane earlier this week on this card sample (see below) for the Mojo 353 sketch.  This week is contest week and Verve is sponsoring prizes, so be sure to play along for a chance to win!

All of the stamps and dies featured this week will be available for purchase in the Verve Store tomorrow (7/11/14)!

Thanks so much for hopping with us today!  Have a great day and we'll see you back here tomorrow for one last stroll through this new VERVE release!
