Verve's April Release Spotlight Hop Day 2

Welcome to our April 2012 Spotlight Hops!  Hop along with the Divas as we share our first looks at a few of the new products releasing from Verve this tomorrow night! Today the Divas are spotlighting 3 different stamps sets and one coordinating die set. I've chosen to use the Small Celebrations set paired with a previously released die, the Scalloped Rectangle:

For my card, I made a glitzy frame with some Stampin' Glitter from Stampin' Up! and a Labels Eighteen die. I nested the two largest dies shapes on a piece of thick kraft cardstock and coated the whole frame with some Glossy Accents. I then sprinkled the glitter on and let it dry. I then layered the Scalloped Rectangle and a petite Scalloped Circle for my sentiment. The edges of the circle are sponged with distress ink and adorned with Platinum Liquid Pearls.

Here's a list of today's hoppers:
