Verve Release Day Blog Hop

Hi friends!  It's release day at Verve and the start of our New Release 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 and they're all available to order right now. Throughout the next week we'll be spotlighting each of the new sets with a hop to show you just how versatile these sets are.


Today the Divas and special guests are showing you their first projects with the new release. And it's designer's choice, so you might just sneak a peek at a whole bunch of must-haves!
Want to win some shiny new Verve? Today's prize is a BIG one. We'll be picking a random commenter on one of the hop spots below to win our ENTIRE new release! So be sure to leave a little comment on all the blogs below to increase your chances! Check out the Verve Blog today for the full hop list and all the prize info and deadlines!

For my card, I chose to use the Simply Amazing set along with the coordinating Simply Daisies Die Set and Amazing Adjectives Word Die Set.


I started by stamping the outline daisies twice with the smaller stamp and once with the larger stamp on coastal cabana.  I then cut them out with the Simply Daisies Die Set.  These dies are an exact cut, so there is no border around the stamped image.  I added a little more depth by snipping between each petal with scissors and hand fluffing.  The centers are stamped in barely banana, cut with the dies and accented with stardust stickles.

I used the same outline flowers to do a little background stamping both on the coastal cabana and the crumb cake layers.  The sentiment is stamped in black and I added the fantastic die cut from the Amazing Adjectives Word Die Set layered in coast cabana, crumb cake, then white cardstock and accented with more stardust stickles.  The layout is the Viva la Verve March Sketch 1 that I am hostessing today.

Alright, next up on the hop is the lovely Amber.  And don't forget to take a peek at all of the new products in the Verve Store.
