New Verve...Day 1 Spotlight Hop

Welcome to our May 2014 Spotlight Hops!  We're so excited to share some new Verve with you! The Divas will be spotlighting 3 new sets, 3 plain janes and a couple dies each day through Friday, so keep your eyes peeled for some fresh Verve inspiration! Everything previewed this week will be available in the Verve online store on Friday, 5/23.


My idea for this card was to lean a little towards the CAS side, I stamped the button stamps in Versamark, sprinkled the design with white embossing powder and then heat set the design. I used a dauber in some Soft Sky ink to gently circle around each design. I then added some Shine Bright Sequins, stamped my sentiment and lastly added the Polka Dot Basics ribbon
