Blog Hop Day 4 - Verve Release Day!

Hi friends!  It's VERVE RELEASE day!  We're back with Day 4 of Verve's new release spotlight Hops and all of the stamps and dies we've featured this week are available in the Verve Store right now!  Woohoo!  

 
So, do you want to win some of this fabulous NEW VERVE???  We're giving away today's featured stamps and dies to a lucky commenter along the hop!  So be sure to leave a little shout out at each of the blogs to let us know what you think and be entered to win!  Check out the Verve blog post today for the full reveal of today's featured stamps and all the giveaway details!  Today's featured products are: Teachers Count, Apples Die Set, On Occasion, Occasion Frame Die and the Promoted Plain Jane.


My card for today features the On Occasion set and the Occasion Frame Die.  And I just had to throw in a little I love you sentiment from Take Note to finish off this birthday card for a special someone.  The frame from On Occasion is stamped in black and then cut with the Occasion Frame Die. The birthday blessings is stamped in black at the top of the frame, then I did a little highlighting to both the frame and the sentiment with a Blushing Bride marker.  Next I stamped three of the flowers from the set on Blushing Bride and once on Pear Pizazz, then fussy cut and layered on dimensionals to build my flower.  I embellished the center with four teeny little rhinestones.  The I love you from Take Note is stamped onto a Flag It Die cut and I hand cut a black mat for it.




The ribbon on the diagonal is the new glimmer twill in the Black Beauty Ribbon Collection.  I simply laid down some scor-tape, placed the ribbon over the tape and cut off the edges.  (I added a touch of fray-check to the ends of the ribbon so it wouldn't fray where it was cut.)  The photo didn't capture the shimmer of the ribbon, but it sure does make me smile when I see it!  I added a little Flourished Trim die cut to the top and bottom of my grey panel, then highlighted them with a layer of black liquid pearls.  I just love that black on black look! 


Alrighty!  That's all from me, now it's time to hop on over to see what fabulous little thing Charmaine has to share with you today! Enjoy the hop!!!  Be sure to hit the Verve blog today to see a super sweet CAS Mother's day card using this set.
