Verve Stamps August 2017 Spotlight Hops



DAY 5 - Monday, 8/28/17
Welcome back to Day 5 of our Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops!  It's an exciting day as there's new Verve in the store this morning! 4 beautiful new sets and 2 coordinating die sets just released and they're all available to order right now. To celebrate this special 10th Anni-VERVE-sary release, we're putting on another blog hop, with a pretty cool prize!


Today's featured focus is designer's choice, so you might just sneak a peek at a whole bunch of must-haves, especially since we've got a full line-up of Divas, guests and Alumni today!

If you got here from Maureen's blog you are in the right place.







I love all of the sets, but  I chose to make another Birthday card!  I just love the Cake and Candles  stamp set.  It has everything you need to make a great birthday card.   


Even if you want just a clean and simple design, some of the sentiment are both sentiments and images all in one. 




The card I made, while clean and simple, could work for anyone young or old, male or female.    I did top off the candle flicker with some sparkle pen.  I finished this card with a trio of enamel dots.









Want to win some shiny new Verve? Today's prize is a BIG one. We'll be picking a random commenter on one of the hop spots below to win our ENTIRE new release!

DAY 4 - Sunday, 8/27/17
Welcome to Day 4 of the Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops!  It's time for another day of spotlighting the Verve release with the Verve Divas and special guests! We're super excited to have another very special Diva Alumni joining us for the hop today. Everything previewed this week will be available to order in the Verve online store on Monday, August 28. If you know you want it all, today is the final day to pre-order the August 2017 Buy it All Bundle at a 30% discount! Only one more sleep until release!


Today we're sharing our first projects featuring the Scripture Medley 5 stamp set. This set includes the re-introduction of the final 2 scripture plain janes, as well as 9 all new scripture verse stamps.

If you got here from Maureen's blog you are in the right place.





I started with some watercolored paper.  I stamped the floral image from Scripture Medley 5 stamp set several times using versamark and embossed in white.




I used my Kuratake Gonsai Tambi watercolors and created a watecolor wash using hues of blues, greens, and yellows.  I dabbed the color with a crumpled paper towel to remove some color and to create some color variation for added dimension and depth.  I created this process two to three times until I achieved the saturation of color that I wanted. 



I added some splatters of black watercolor for effect.  I die cut and stamped the scripture for the focal point onto vellum.  I attached it with a tiny attacher.  I finished my card with a few of Verve's Shine Bright Sequin Mix.

I created a shaker card using That's My Boy Echo Park pattern paper and Cake and Candles stamp set.

I colored and fussy cut the cupcake and added some wink of stella for some sugary shine.   I finished with a few gold sequins.





I am playing along with CAS(E) this Sketch.

If you got here from Maureen's blog you are in the right place.


I started with a 4.25 x 5.50 piece of white card stock.  I stamped both of the small leafy images in the Bloom Brighter stamp set in different shades of warm colors.  For added filler I used the tiny dots images from Poppy Birthday stamp set.  


Next, I die cut and stamped one of the bold sentiments from the set and embossed in white using the Stitched Pennant die set.  I added two stamped and die cut leaves using Blooming Die Set to the focal sentiment for added detail. 



I popped up the focal sentiment using some foam tape.  I added some loose threading for added detail.

Verve Stamps August 2017 Spotlight Hops
DAY 1 - Thursday, 8/24/17
Welcome to our 10th Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops! Verve is celebrating 10 years of bringing stamps to the world with a release of new and classic Verve! For the next few days we'll be shining our creative spotlights on the new Verve sets and dies that will be releasing Monday, August 28. We hope you'll join us as the design team, special Guest Diva Kelly Lunceford, and some fabulous rockstar alumni Divas share their inspirations with the new goodies this week.

If you got here from Maureen's blog you are in the right place.

Today's feature is on the Little Ones stamp set and coordinating Little Ones Die Set. A fusion of old and new, this baby themed set brings back some of Verve's most popular plain janes, mixed with a few new designs to tie it all together.




For my card I just had to ink up this adorable chick from the Little Ones stamp set!  I die cut with coordinating Little Ones Die Set and colored with copics.  




I paired this chick with some fun pattern papers. I added the sentiment using versafine onyx black included in same stamp set.  


 I added some wink of stella to the chickie for some added sparkle and shine.  I completed the card with a few of Verve's Shine Bright Sequin Mix.
