Verve Release Day!




Welcome back to Day 3 of Verve's November Release Spotlight Hops!  It's an exciting day as there's new Verve in the store this morning! Two beautiful new sets and coordianating die sets just released and they're all available in the shop right now. To celebrate our new release, we're putting on another blog hop with a fabulous giveaway!

Today's featured focus is designer's choice, so you might just sneak a peek at a whole bunch of must-haves!

First up is a card featuring Jolly Jingles. I embossed the sentiments and images and then add a touch of color with patterned paper and coordinating Verve sequins. To finish off the card I used a touch of twine and rounded the bottom corner.  My preppy loving heart loves the combination of pink, green, gray and blue. 


For my second card, I had fun with a touch of water coloring.  First I embossed the sentiment from Beyond Measure in gold.  I then stamped the leaf images.  I applied a brush to the leaves to blend them in a bit and then added a touch of blue behind the sentiment to finish off the card.  

I hope you've been inspired and are ready to shop and pick up some new Verve goodies!
