Pinecone Christmas Spotlight Hop

Welcome back to Day 2 of Verve's November 2014 Spotlight Hops!  The Verve Divas and special guests are back for another day of spotlighting the new holiday release! Everything previewed this week will be available in the Verve online store on Thursday, 11/20. So come hop along with us and see what's new at Verve!

I'm the first stop on today's hop, so grab a treat and hop along with us to see what's new at Verve!
Today's spotlight is shining on the Pinecone Christmas set illustrated by Chaitali Narla and the coordinating Poinsettia Pinecones Die Set.


I loved the multi-step stamping concept of this set, so started with the pine cones in mossy meadow, then adding the branch in brown sugar, as well as the pine cone duo.  I embossed the Happy Holidays sentiment above in cherry cobbler, then sponged the edges with brown sugar ink.  The poinsettia with leaves is stamped in brown sugar and then cut out with the coordinating die from the Poinsettia Pinecones Die Set.  I then stamped the solid flower in cherry cobbler and the solid leaves in mossy meadow for a super quick colored image.  A Flourished Trim border die cut separates my layers and I embellished with some cherry cobbler seam binding and a gold rhinestone.

  35. Thanks for sharing your GORGEOUS card. I LOVE the two-step stamping in this set AND that it has a coordinating die set.
    Okay I have to admit to an ah-ha and a little duh moment here. lol. I have your Flourish Trim border die and never thought to use it to cut the edge of the paper it was going to border to make that cute edge. I know crazy right. lol.
