Welcome to Verve's November Release Retrospective Blog Hop!

Have you had a chance to get your inky fingers on the latest Verve release? It's a beautiful holiday release and the Verve Divas and November Guests are hopping again today with a fresh dose of inspiration using the new stamps! Everything in the shop is on sale 25% off right now, so it's a great time to stock up. Come take a tour of our blogs to see these fun stamps in action, then leave a little comment love as you hop about for a chance to win today's prize!

For my card I just had to create a snowman scene shaker card with the Jolly Jingles stamp set and Winter Friends die set.  I mixed some pattern papers that I had in my stash.  I stamped a few snowflakes on the background scene, tore some white card stock for snowdrifts, added some wink of stella, then die cut and colored my snowman.  I did add some wink of stella to him, too!

I added the sentiment to the heart from Verve's Wavy Hearts die set.  I added sequins from Verve's Shine Bright Sequin Mix and Verve's Frosted Snowfall Sequin Mix.   The snowfall mix has little snowflakes.  I glued a few to the background.  I had to add a few of these beautiful sequins to the outside of my card, too!
