New Verve - Day 2

Welcome back to Day 2 of Verve's October 2015 Spotlight Hops!  The Verve Divas are back for another day of spotlighting the new release! It's release day and everything you've seen spotlighted yesterday and today is available to order in the Verve store! Due to manufacturing delays the Good Work set is available as a pre-order only. The Just Breathe set has limited quantities with more on the way very soon. Stay tuned next week on the Verve Blog for four days of spotlights from some very special Guest Divas, then we'll wrap things up with a Release in Review Hop next Friday!

Today's spotlight is shining on the Good Work set, coordinating Good Work Flower Die Set and the Psalm 150:6 plain jane. Also releasing today is our beautiful Frosted Snowfall Sequin Mix.
I decided to use the Psalm 150:6 Plain jane and some sweet, spring-y flowers:



The sentiment is framed on a Rounded Scallop Frame by from Verve. I stamped the sentiment in Versafine, added a few pearl drops and then layered the scalloped edge frames.

New Verve Day 1

Hello and welcome to Verve's October 2015 Spotlight Hops!
It's almost time for some new Verve to hit the store, and the Verve Divas are hopping today to share our first looks at a brand new set filled to the brim with encouragement called Just Breathe. You may have just arrived here from Amber's blog. Hopefully you're enjoying the show so far! Here's what I created with the Just Breathe set:


I just love the uplifting phrases this set, Just Breathe, contains. I added some stamped hearts and Verve's new sequin collection, Harvest Gold Sequin Mix. I also added some paper flowers, wood medallions, stick pins, crinkled ribbon, a paper heart doily and roughed up most of the edges.

New Verve ~ Day 4

Welcome back to Day 4 of Verve's June 2014 Spotlight Hops!  The Verve Divas and special guests are back for another day of spotlighting the new holiday release! And the wait is almost over... everything previewed this week will be available in the Verve online store on Friday, 6/19. So come hop along with us and see our first looks at today's featured products!
Today's spotlight is shining on The Buzz set illustrated by Julee Tilman, as well as the coordinating The Buzz Die Set and Proverbs 16:24 plain jane.


I never have enough Father's Day cards...between me and my husband, both sets of parents are divorced and remarried...so we have 4 fathers to send cards to. I figured this would get me a jump start for next weekend. Very simple design, I used the washi tape for a eye catching accessory and the stars also break up the monochromatic design.

I decided to go with a summery sunflower theme, paired with this beautiful Floral Notes set. I added a bit of bargain bin lace I bought from Michaels...a little sponging...some skewed panels...a liquid dot here and there...and finito!

New Verve ~ Day 2

Everything previewed this week will be available in the Verve online store on Friday, 6/19. So come hop along with us and see what's new at Verve! Welcome from Charmaine's blog!
Today's spotlight is shining on the Deco Borders set illustrated by Chaitali Narla.
Here's my take on this lovely set:


The side borders are stamped using this set as well as the sentiment. I stamped the butterfly from Day 5's sneak peek (shh!!) and added some Star Dust stickles to give it a little sparkle. The scalloped oval Spellbinders set is accented with light sponging and some liquid pearls.

New Verve ~ Day 1

Welcome to Verve's June 2015 Spotlight Hops!  This week the Verve Divas and a few special guests will be spotlighting 5 new sets, 2 plain janes and 4 new die sets! Everything previewed this week will be available in the Verve online store onFriday, 6/19. So come hop along with us and see what's new at Verve! If you're following the blog path, you should have arrived here from Charmaine's blog.

Today's spotlight is shining on the Get Together set illustrated by Julee Tilman and the new Psalm 19:14 plain jane. I've chosen to go with 19:14 for my sneaky peek:


It's been quite a while since I've posted and feel rather rusty about the process...hopefully I can revert back into the swing of this again! I chose to showcase Verve's newest faith-based verse stamp, Psalm 19:14, using Maja Design's Nyhavn collection. Though it looks busy, there's not too many accessories to this card, I basically let the stamp and papers do all the work. I did add some liquid pearl accents to dress up the design a bit, but I think it worked well regardless.

Today is day 1 of the hops...I'll be back everyday this week with more previews...and looking forward to being creative again!
