merrychristmasmaureenplut

It's release day at Verve and we're celebrating with Day 4 of our November 2014 Spotlight Hops!  Have you enjoyed the spotlights we've been sharing this week? Well, the wait is over and everthing previewed this week is available in the Verve online store now! And to cap off this release, we're giving away the entire release to one lucky commenter along today's hop, so come along with us as we share one last look-see at our holiday spotlights!

Today's spotlight is on the November 2014 Release Collection, so grab a treat and hop along!

I’ve got more traditional colours going on today!  I used the masking technique to create my sentiment panel.  I stamped the “Merry Christmas” onto my white panel and then onto a sticky note and cut it out.  Then I put the mask over my sentiment so I could stamp the poinsettia.  Here’s a photo if you are a visual learner like me :)

Once the mask was protecting the sentiment, I stamps the pointsettia, then removed the mask…here’s what I was left with…
