Verve Stamps May 2016 Spotlight Hops



Welcome back to Day 4 of our Anni-VERVE-sary 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!


I made two cards to share today!   For my first card, I started with some pattern paper from my stash. 
I die cut the Flourished Tag die set tag in white.  I stamped one of the scriptures from Scripture Medley 4 in a medium gray ink.  



I stamped the heart from Verve's With Love stamp set over in a coral color to coordinate with the paper.  I added some black and white twine cut and attached with tiny staples.  I finished my card with some of Verve's Shine Bright Sequin Mix.



For my second card, I chose to do some more background watercoloring.  I started with watercolor paper.  I stamped and white embossed the flowers from Joyful Blooms stamp set.  I colored with copics.  I added a tumble glass distress ink wash to the background along with some splatters in tumble glass and white.  I stamped my scripture from Scripture Medley 4 using a black hybrid ink onto vellum and let it dry.  



I wrapped the vellum top to bottom and taped it on the back of the card.  I added a touch of leaves across the bottom using the Flourished Tag die set again.  I finished with one gold sequin in the center of this leafy sprig using Verve's Gold Package Sequin Mix.
