New Verve...Happy Birthday

Welcome to our October 2013 Spotlight Hops!  We were so excited to preview Verve's newest stamp sets and dies with you over the last few days. Today the Divas will be shining their Verve spotlights on all the different sets, so stay tuned for a fun inspirational hop... and PRIZES, too! Everything previewed today has become available in the Verve online store as of last night, 10/25. I chose to use Chevron Love and made a Fall-themed birthday card:


I started off with Authentique's Thankful papers and just arranged a bunch of scraps that I had saved from my last project. I distressed all the edges, added a lace bow adorned with a paper flower and some Zva Creative pearls and crystals. For a little interest, I added Verve's Award Banner Trim die to the bottom portion and stuck pearls in the middles of the circles. A little line of Hot Chocolate Liquid Pearls finishes off the sentiment panel.


Want to win some shiny new Verve? We'll be picking a random commenter on one of the hop spots below to win today's featured products...and today is the whole release! So be sure to leave a little comment on all the blogs below to increase your chances! Check out the Verve Blog today for full set reveals and all the prize info and deadlines!
