Sweet Trio - Verve Spotlight Hop

Happy Tuesday!  Today is the first day of Verve's New Release Spotlight Hops and we're starting things off with a bang! Our previews today includes three new dies and two sets.   For the full list of hops and prize info, be sure to read to the bottom of this post! 

This cute little trio of tags showcases two new sets, Sweet Treats and Swirling Hearts that coordinate with our existing A Cut Above dies as well as a couple of new dies!  I stamped the swirly tag from Sweet Treats on white card stock in regal rose, real red and melon mambo, then cut out with the Sweet Scallop Tag Die.

The center of the stamped tag has an opening to stamp a sentiment, but I chose to just punch a 1.25" circle in coordinating cardstock as a background for a little sentiment tag.  The smaller sentiments are from the Swirling Hearts set and will all work with your smaller punches and dies.  On the first two tags, I've used the Stampin! Up! modern label punch for the sentiment, then layered some Martha Stewart felt hearts and accented with pearls and rhinestones from Pizzazz Aplenty.  The sweet treats sentiment is from the Sweet Treats set, and I hand cut the little flag, drawing in a thin little frame.  I finished each tag off with a little baker's twine.  Such a simple project, but so fun to make!

The Prize Info:  Okay, since a new release is definitely something to celebrate, we've hidden a prize along the hop today!  One lucky commenter on one of the Day 1 Hop Spots will win today's featured stamps and dies... Swirling Hearts, Sweet Treats, Classy Label Die, Jotted Heart Die and the Embossed Oval Die!  So be sure to leave a little comment love for the Divas, so you can be one of the first to get these yummy new toys!  Comment deadline is 6PM Mountain on Friday, January 7.  Winners will be announced at our ReLeAsE pArTy that night! 

If you've already been hopping along, I'm the caboose, and thanks so much for hopping along with us today!  And if you've just happened along, be sure to check out the list of hops below.
