Gettin' my Verve on!!

Hi everyone!! Happy Friday!! I haven't been feeling tip top for the past two days, and I have yet to share some of my Verve samples using the AWESOME new stamps from the upcoming Verve release on March 8!! Did you know that this is the BIGGEST Verve release ever? And let me tell you...when I saw the stamps, I said, out loud..."HOLY CANNOLI" (which, if you know me, is what I saw when I am totally and utterly blown away by fabulousness!!!). These stamps are ROCKIN'!!!

Now that a few more sets have previewed over at the Verve Stamps blog, I can show you some of my creations!!! Being a Verve Guest Diva is the BOMB!! Thank you SO much Julee (She is the BOMB too!!!!).

The first card I want to show you tonight features Bunny Duet!!! LOVE this set!!!

When I first saw this AWESOME image, I thought it would be SO much fun to make a Wedding card!!! Soooooooo...I stamped the bunnies onto white cardstock and I colored them with Copic Markers. I then took the hat from the snowman in the Snow Wonderful set (already released), stamped it, cut it out and placed it on the boy bunny's head at a jaunty angle!! The sentiment is from Practically Perfect, which is also being released on the 8th of this month!!

The DSP is Rockabilly from SU! and I added some pearls to make it a little fancy!! The sentiment was cut out with Lots of Tags (Label #1) from the SU! catty (Sizzlits). I just have to say...I really like this card!!! I don't normally LOVE my stuff at all, but this one really gets me!!!

The second card I have to show you tonight is using Chocolate Bunnies!!! SUPER cute right???

I stamped this little sweetie onto white cardstock, and colored him with my Copic Markers!! All the DSP is from Delicate Dots DSP (I find this particular DSP SOOOO hard to work you?), and I FINALLY used my new Eyelet Border Punch!!! I finished this off with some piercing (duh!), So Saffron Polytwill Ribbon and Barely Banana Brads!!!

OK...want some more???? LOL!! OK! Here goes!!

OK...I'll admit it...I really like this card too!!! On this card, I used a simply GORGEOUS new set called Everlasting Life!! Oh my word...this set is FABULOUS!!!!! For my card, I REALLY tried to change up my layout (I feel like all my cards use the same layout!!), and, while these are not Easter colors, I think that they work!! I used Urban Garden DSP on this card and used it to paper piece the cross. I added some black brads and tons of piercing on this as well! I stamped the sentiment onto the DSP and punched it with my wide oval punch, which I then layered onto circle and Scallop circle punches!! This card will be for my Nani on Easter, which is also her 90th birthday!!!

OK...last but CERTAINLY not least!!!
I LOVE this new set...LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!! This set is called Miracles Blossom, and it just makes me feel like Spring!!!! I stamped this FABU image onto white cardstock and colored it with my Copic Markers. Now, this layout is one I use again and again, I love how it really shows off an image!! I framed my image in Oval Nestabilities, and the DSP is from Pink Flamingo, one of my favorites!!! I LOVE this sentiment, as I LOVE all the Verve sentiments, and I stamped it directly onto the Pink Flamingo DSP. I finished off my card with some sheer polka dot ribbon and some White Brads by American Crafts!!!
