Day 1 July Release Blog Hop

Hi friends! It's the start of a fabulous weekend of blog hopping in Verveland. The Verve Divas and special guests are excited to be sharing their first looks at the new sets and dies that will be releasing on Monday, July 10.  I'm the first stop on the hop and am so glad you're here! Hop around to each of the blogs on the hop list and leave a little love for a chance to win today's featured products. Check out the Verve Blog post today for the master hop list, prize details, reveals and a little more on this fun new set.



If you just know you're going to need it all, we are accepting pre-orders for the July Release Collection at a 25% discount through Sunday, July 9. Once the release goes live, the price goes up, so be sure to snag some savings!

Today, we're shining our sneaky little spotlights on the Always Time stamp set and coordinating Kettle Time Die Set. Talk about coffee loving goodness!  I'm smitten with this set, especially the retro style coffee/tea cups and kettles. I'm sure this set will be staying on my desk for quite some time!


For my card, I chose two of the cup images and stamped them each 2 times and colored with Copics. I then cut them with the coordinating dies from the Kettle Time Die Set.  Next I took a pre-made white tag and stamped the hope this perks you up sentiment in onyx black.  I snipped off the end of the tag to make it fit my card, then brought in a hint of the scallops on the cups with a die from the Scalloped Trim Trio Die Set.  I also used this same die to edge my aqua paper scrap and added a couple strips of orange papers to add a little oomph to the layout.  I finished the tag with some orange taffeta ribbon and then layered the cups on the tag.  The card base is embossed with stars for just a hint of starry texture.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoy seeing the new goodies in action along the hop. Next up on the hop is one of our fabulous Guest Divas, Kathy Schweinfurth. I know you're going to love what she has to share today!

  16. Love the bright splashes of color on your card, Julee! I never quite know how to use tags on my cards. Having the stack of cups drifting over the edge of your tag die cut pulls everything together. I need to try that!! Thank you for sharing your beautiful card and for the chance to win this lovely and gracious set!
