Verve's April Release Spotlight Hop Day 3

Welcome to our third day of Holiday Spotlight Hops!  I do hope that you'll hop along with the Divas today as we share our first looks at a few of the new products releasing from Verve tonight! Today the Divas are peeking a card or project using the new stamps from either of the past two days. Since there are multiple sets released each day, I have another opportunity to show you a card using a brand new set, Super Dad. Julee has also designed new dies to coordinate with this set in particular...take a look:


See that sweet banner? The stamped inside is part of the new set and then there's also a coordinating die... that's good news since I have such a hard time cutting both tails of my banners equally. Problem solved! I used Jen Shults' Deconstructed sketch for last week as my design:


Here's a list of today's hoppers:


One lucky commenter from each day's hop will win the sets and dies featured that day, so be sure and leave a little love in the Divasphere! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize details and deadlines.
