Verve Stamp Release {no matter what!}

foreverandalwaysmaureenplut

Welcome to our No Matter What Hop!  Today we're releasing a lovely little set that you might have spied during Verve's Thanksgiving weekend sale. It's officially available for sale now, along with three brand new color collections of seam binding! There's a lot of eye candy today, so hop along with us for a chance to win some brand new Verve!

My card features 2 new sentiments from No Matter What.  I wanted to show you that all the large sentiments fit perfectly into the Hearts and Swirls stamp and die.  It also wouldn’t be a true Verve Valentine card without the fabulous Jotted Heart die and matching image from Love Notes :)  If you think the heart looks a tad bit longer, it is!  I cut the heart in half (eek!) and elongated it to fit perfectly behind the hearts and swirls die.  Today’s card also uses the brand new Viva La Verve sketch.  I’m hosting this week, so come visit over in the forum for some fun chit chat and inspiration before playing along.

As we're saying hello to a few new products today, we also say goodbye to a couple dear designers. This is our final hop with Amy and Tosh as part of the Divahood, so be sure to let them know how much their AMAZING Verve creations have inspired you.

So... want to know about the prizes? We're picking THREE mystery blogs from today's hop to select a random commenter to win No Matter What plus one of our three new collections of ribbon! So be sure to give a little shout out in the comment section as you hop around to each blog on the list. Winners will be drawn from all of the comments on the mystery blogs. Check out the Verve Blog for all the prize details and deadlines. Enjoy the rest of the hop!
