Verve Stamps New Release Spotlight

Friday, March 4, 2016




So pinch me, please!  This girl is living the dream.  So totally thrilled to be a Guest Diva for Verve over the next week :)  When Julee e-mailed me and asked if I'd like to do this hop it took me about 1.5 seconds to reply.  Ummm. yes, hello???, of course, I want to join in the hop and play with some shiny new Verve!

So here it is...welcome to the first day of Verve's March Spotlight Hops!  It's an exciting day as there's a whole bunch of new Verve in the store this morning! 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!

And here's my first card using Hip Hop Bunnies, Bunnie Hop Die Set, Partly Cloudy Die Set and Welcome Plain Jane:


For my background, I cut a couple of stencils from some heavy card stock using the two clouds from the Partly Cloudy Die Set. Then I added some white gesso through the homemade stencils with my finger. The oval is some designer paper that's been stenciled with translucent gesso and rubbed with some more of the white gesso to soften the look of the paper.  Don't you just adore that sweet little polka dotted bunny? And there are two more adorable little bunnies in this set too!

I've stamped the Welcome Plain Jane on some coordinating designer paper and die cut it with the Curvy Bookplate Die.  A trio of resin roses completes the card.
