New Verve...With Love

Welcome to our October 2013 Spotlight Hops!  We're so excited to preview Verve's newest stamp sets and dies with you! Over the next few days, the Divas will be shining their Verve spotlights on a different set each day, so stay tuned for a fun series of inspirational hops... and PRIZES, too! Everything previewed this week will be available in the Verve online store Friday night, 10/25. I've got a shabby delight to show you today featuring Chevron Love and Heart Quartet Die Set:


My Maja Design's Walking in the Forest paper collection went perfectly with Verve's new Chevron Love stamp set. I also used the featured 'Heart Quartet dies' that are being peeked today as well. Though with mine, I did distress the edges slightly and to give a worn appearance, I dipped my finger in some white craft ink and ever so lightly, blended the white ink onto the blue hearts. I love the look...like a comfy, well-worn pair of denim jeans! The sentiment panel was stamped with the verse, then I dotted the perimeter with some Copper Pearl liquid Pearls. There's a hint of the previously released Award Banner Trim die poking out the bottom...I did try to draw a little more attention to it with the chunky pearls.
