Coffee Helps Spotlight Blog Hop

Hi friends!  Welcome back to Day 2 of Verve's March Spotlight Hops!  I'm the first stop on the hop, so settle in and come check out what's new at Verve! 5 beautiful new sets, 6 die sets and a plain jane just released on Friday and they're all available to order right now. So come hop along with us and take a closer look at the Coffee Helps and Cup for All Seasons die set.

It's also the first Monday of a new month, which means its contest week over at Mojo Monday!  Play along with this week's Mojo Monday 438 sketch for a chance to win some Verve of your very own.  I made a sweet little card with this week's layout and the new stamps and dies.


I started with the sentiment panel, testing out my new Distress Crayons to make a colorful background, then embossing the sentiment from Coffee Helps  in black and cutting with nestabilities dies.  I then stamped the floral cup in Melon Mambo, colored with Copics and cut with the coordinating Cup for All Seasons Die Set.  The sun and clouds are die cut with the new Partly Cloudy Die Set and the stitched circle center for the sun is from the new Springtime Stitches Die Set.  A little Frosted Lace Stickles on the cloud and coffee finish things off.

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! So be sure to leave a little comment on all the blogs below to increase your chances!
