Day 4: Verve's April Release Spotlight Hops!


Verve Stamps April 2018 Spotlight Hops


Welcome back to Day 4 of Verve's April Release Spotlight Hops!  This month we're combining our release hop with our monthly Diva Inspirations Hop & Challenge. We're stamping with a yellow color scheme this month and would love to see what you create. Hop along to see our takes on the challenge, then get inky and show us your take!




And since this is our April release hop, there's new Verve in the store this morning with a fabulous prize along our hop! Three beautiful new sets and coordinating die sets just released and the entire April collection is up for grabs to one lucky commenter on our hop today!

Today's featured focus is designer's choice combined with our April inspiration, so you might just sneak a peek at a whole bunch of must-haves! Check out all the challenge details on the Verve blog today.

If you got here from our Guest Designer's blog, Michele you are in the right place!




For my card  I mixed some DCWV pattern papers.  I chose to use this wonderful sentiment from Risen Savior stamp set.  


I combined the sentiment with the newly released  Hope Lifts stamp set and coordinating Lifted Hope Die Set for this lovely butterfly.  I die cut, stamped, and colored with copics.  I added lots of wink of stella for some added sparkle and shine.  


I also used the newly released  Lacey Trim Duo die sets along with Verve's Falling Leaves die set for the stitched rectangle center panel.  I finished my card with some clear sequins.

  2. As I look at this beautiful card I think - what is not to like - Nothing fo course - the layout and colors are lovely as well as the products - but what caught my eye was the border die cut - did you know on the right side it looks like a pair of glasses tucked in there - at least to me! Super and thanks for showing us your work during this hop!
