I have a network with 3 VLANs and currently I have 1 DHCP server per VLAN for two of the VLANs.  The third VLAN I just created and I need to configure a DHCP scope for it.  Is there a way to create this new scope for the new subnet / range on one of the existing DHCP servers that are on a different VLAN and have that work properly OR would you recommend that I just create a new VM server and put that on the new VLAN?

That depends on the equipment facilitating communications between VLANs. If it supports DBCP relaying and helpers, yes it is possible. But you'll have to refer to the equipment manufacturer for specifics on their implementation.

I am using a Cisco 3560 and some 2960s and I can configure IPHelper / relays.. I guess my question is what configuration would be subjected to less potential issues?

Neither. Just depends on how you wants traffic to flow, what your security stance is, and how you prefer to manage the scopes.
