Verve Stamps May 2016 Spotlight Hops


DAY 3 - Friday, 5/20/16
Welcome back to Day 3 of Verve's May Spotlight Hops!  It's an exciting day as there's new Verve in the store this morning! 2 beautiful new sets, 3 die sets and a sequin mix just released and they're all available to order right now. To celebrate our new release, we're putting on another blog hop!
Today's featured focus is designer's choice, so you might just sneak a peek at a whole bunch of must-haves!

If you got here from the fabulously talented 
Lori Craig's blog you are in the right place!





I have two cards to share today!  I went CAS with both.  For the first one, I used some patterned papers mixed with three layers of the Stitched Pennants die set.  




I stamped a sentiment from Love Everlasting stamp set.  I finished with some Verve Shine Bright Sequin Mix.


 For my second card, I distressed stamped the layered heart image from Love Everlasting stamp set in versamark onto red card stock.  I combined the new "Beautiful" word  from Beautiful Flowers die set and the letter "U" from I Heart U die set to create Beautiful You sentiment in gold foiled card stock. 



I  added a layered die cut heart from Everlasting Heart die set in white.  Instead of stamping the coordinating image, I chose to just use the die covered in some clear wink of stella for added sparkle.  I finished with some gold sequins from the Holiday Sequins Mix.
