Anni-VERVE-sary 2014 Spotlight ~ Day 1




Welcome to our Anni-VERVE-sary 2014 Spotlight Hops! If you’ve arrived from Stacey’s blog you are right on track!

This month Verve is celebrating 7 wonderful years and our release is filled with all sorts of treats! All week long the Divas will be spotlighting new stamps and dies and each day there's a chance to win a $50 gift code to Verve just for commenting on our posts! So tune in each day for a new spotlight and a fresh chance to win. Everything previewed this week will be available for purchase in the Verve online store on Saturday 8/30.

Today I’m using Cupcakes (illustrated by Chaitali Narla) to make this fun cupcake card.  I’ve created that yummy icing by stamping the cupcake top with pink ink and then glazing it with Glossy Accents.  I’ve added some white sequins from the Signature Sequin Mix for a bit of fun and a bit more sparkle!



Want to win some shiny new Verve? We'll be picking a random commenter on one of the hop spots below to win a $50 gift code to Verve! So be sure to leave a little comment on each blog on the list to increase your chances! Check out the Verve Blog today for full set reveals and all the prize info and deadlines!
