New Verve...Stronger Love

Welcome to our Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops!  As many of you know, Verve is celebrating its 5th anniversary this month and the party is just getting started! Come join us over the next 3 days as we showcase the 23 new stamps and dies releasing from Verve! We'll be counting down the minutes and revealing all the new sets in our forum from 9-11pm Eastern on Friday, August 24, so make plans now to join us for our release party! Today's focus is on a set called Stronger Love, Scroll Plain Jane along with it's coordinating Scroll die:


In keeping with my ever present shabby mood lately, I've incorporated a doily, lace, pearls, stitching, flower and silky bow to enhance the sweet stamp from Verve's new Stronger Love set. It was so hard for me to narrow down the sentiment as all of them are beautiful, heart warming and soulful. I tried something new on this card, to color in the flowers, I used Liquid Pearls. I would not recommend that for a larger image, but for those sweet little flowers, it came out wonderfully! 


 We've got a fun filled hop for you today! So let your fingers do the clicking and peek into the creative minds of Verve's talented Divas and Guest Divas as they give you a little tour of what's to come! Inspiration abounds, and so do the PRIZES!

We’ll draw a random winner from all of the comments on the mystery blog to win today's featured sets and dies. Check out the Verve Blog for all the prize details and deadlines.
