Welcome to 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!
If you got here from fabulously talented Amber's Blog you are in the right spot, otherwise, you may want to start at the very beginning at the Verve Blog so you do not miss a thing!
I just think all of these stamps and dies are pretty perfect! I decided to create a watercolor background with some distress inks. Next, I die cut, stamped and white embossed the sentiments from the new Simply Amazing stamp set using Verve's Mini Classy Label dies. I lightly sponged some white pigment ink around the edges. Then, I die cut the word "perfect" form the new Amazing Adjectives Word Die set. (This is a must have set for sure! Love the font and the word choices!) I die cut the word twice with regular white card stock and stacked together.
To continue with the watercolor look, I again used some Ranger distressed inks and watercolored a subtle ombre background in shades of red, then die cut the "perfect" word from the watercolored paper once it dried. Again, I glued this piece to the top of the word stack for added thickness and dimension. I finished the card with a few sequins.
