Release Day Spotlight Hop

Welcome to Day 4 of Verve's Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops! It's release day and that means all the new Verve that we've been sharing this week is available in the store.  To celebrate, we're putting on another hop and the prize is the ENTIRE release. Woohoo!  Today's featured focus is designer's choice, so you might just sneak a peek at a whole bunch of must-haves!  I'm the first stop on today's hop, so let's get to it!


For today's card, I pulled out the Kindness Matters stamp set.  I really wanted to use the kind and brave sentiment, so started by stamping the two sentiments on stitched circle die cuts and then sponging with broken china ink. I just adore these sentiments together. It seems like I tell my boys to be kind approximately 100 times a day. I hope the repetition sinks in and they turn into little humans with a heart for others. And ones that are brave enough to stand up for what's right when they see others being unkind.

Okay, on with the card... next I pulled together some neutral prints, distressing the edges with tip top taupe ink and rounding one corner.  The flower is embossed in white on tiptop taupe and cut with the coordinating Great Kindness Die Set.  I layered all three sizes of flowers one on top of each other and just love the look.  To finish, I added some black leafy spray die cuts from the Great Kindness Die Set and a teeny library clip on one of the sentiment circles.


Thanks so much for stopping by and thanks for all the wonderful support and comments the past few days.  I love sharing new goodies with you and it's so fun to hear your thoughts. Next up on today's hop is the fabulous Stacey!
