Verve Holiday Spotlight Hop ~ Day Two

day2brightspirits
Welcome to our Holiday Spotlight Hops!  Hop along with the Divas over the next few days as we share our first looks at a few of the new products releasing from Verve this Friday night!  Oh, my! New stamps to stamp onto kraft paper!  BLISS! I’ve found that whenever I’m not sure how to cut out a fun image, I will use it to make a background instead!  The new Bright Spirits set comes with 4 adorable ornament images, perfect for creating a very merry background!  I also love holding up sentiments to all my die shapes to see which one looks good where…the winner this time for this sentiment was the Curvy Bookplate die :)  I stamped the sentiment off center so I could add the sweet little layered star/poinsettia also from Bright Spirits.  The dies for them are part of the new Winter Fun die collection (FUN indeed! No cutting!! LOL). Want to win this set, these dies and MORE?!
One lucky commenter from each day's hop will win the sets and dies featured that day, so be sure and leave a little love in the Divasphere! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize details and deadlines. Enjoy the rest of the hop and see you tomorrow!!
