Happy Wednesday! Wow! The week is flying by and it's already time for the first set of sneak previews over on the Verve Blog. Today the girls are showcasing two beautiful new sets called Swan Song and Wishing You which will be available immediately following our release party on Friday night. Be sure to hop on over to the Verve Blog today for a chance to win these two sets.
I used both Swan Song and Wishing You on my card for today. Wishing You is my version of an update on Wonderful Wishes and has several sentiments that pair with the Wishing You phrase. Since they're separate stamps and a goodly size (most are about 1.75" wide), they're perfect for starting on the outside and finishing on the inside, but they also look great stamped together for a sentiment focal piece. The swan from Swan Song can also double as a sassy little peacock by adding some knobbly kneed legs that are included in the set. Oh, and the tail feathers are super fun to layer and paper tole, like I did here on this card.
Thanks for all the well wishes on my tendinitis. I'm still working through the pain, but each day it gets a little better. Sadly, stamping is one of the things that hurts the most, so I haven't been able to do as much of it as I've wanted to over the last week. Ah, well, tomorrow is another day! :)

This blog is for personal inspiration only and all projects are my original designs unless otherwise stated. I own Verve Stamps and have received products and materials to work with from several generous companies over the years. While I have received free products from these companies, I maintain the freedom as an independent designer to say what I truly think of their products. I will never recommend something that I don’t personally use and enjoy.
