Verve Stamps November 2016 Spotlight Hops


Welcome to Verve's July Release Spotlight Hops! A new release is just around the corner and for the next few days we'll be shining our creative spotlights on the new Verve sets and dies releasing Monday, July 10.
Today the Divas and special guests are sharing inspiration featuring the new Always Time stamp set and coordinating Kettle Time Die Set. Check out the Verve Blog post today for the full hop list, prize details, reveals and a little more on this fun new set.

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




I just love this set.  It is so perfect for many situations.  I started wtih a plain white base and a patterned background.  I chose to stamp and die cut the teapot and a flower cluster from the set.  



I colored each with Copic markers.  I lightly sponged the background in a soft yellow.  I added some foam dimensionals to pop up each image.  



I fell in love with this sweet sentiment.  A great one for a coworker or friend who has to endure long hours at the office to get a project completed.  A great pick-me-up  motivational card with the added bonus of a cup of tea or coffee in hand, of course.  I finished my card with a tiny touch of bling on the flower.

  27. Your card is so soft and pretty. Rarely do I think about adding a black print, especially with pastels but it works so beautifully with it. Love the soft yellow glow and then the teal pot just makes it pop! It'll put a big smile on someone's face.
