Verve's 10th Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hop ~ Release Day!


Welcome back to Day 5 of our Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops!  It's an exciting day as there's new Verve in the store this morning! 4 beautiful new sets and 2 coordinating die sets just released and they're all available to order right now. To celebrate this special 10th Anni-VERVE-sary release, we're putting on another blog hop, with a pretty cool prize!

Today's featured focus is designer's choice, so you might just sneak a peek at a whole bunch of must-haves, especially since we've got a full line-up of Divas, guests and Alumni today!

When I first got the "Cake and Candles" set out, I thought it would be cool to make a background with the stamps as they were on the acetate sheet.  So I turned the whole stamp set over, inked it up with versamark, stamped it onto some sweet blush cardstock, poured white embossing powder on it, then heated it up.  Below is the finished result before I put my card together. (hey, how do you like my new Canada EH? mug?!).  This card was snatched up by my sister as one of her birthday card set selection...I give my sister's a set of 10 cards as birthday presents.



Want to win some shiny new Verve? Today's prize is a BIG one. We'll be picking a random commenter on one of the hop spots below to win our ENTIRE new release! So be sure to leave a little comment on all the blogs below to increase your chances! Check out the Verve Blog today for the full hop list and all the prize info and deadlines!

Love your idea for stamping the background.
I'm never happy with the end-result when I
try to stamp a background but this would
be easy and look so good - have to give it
a go.
