Verve April Release Spotlight Hop


Hey there stampers!! Verve is releasing four new sets and a Plain Jane on Friday, and we get to share some peeks with you the next few days. Today we're featuring the two sets Joyful Blooms and Purely Sentimental. The flowers from the Joyful Blooms set have a die to match now too, appropriately called Joyful Blooms die. ;) Woot!! I stamped the flower, with Versamark, onto some Authentique dp, embossed it with white ep, and layered it. I stamped the leaves, from the set Bloom and Grow (Verve), with Sage (a muse), and diecut them with the Elegant Leaves die (Verve). The sentiment was diecut with one of the Charming Ovals die (Verve)., and I framed it with a diecut Floral Oval and Classic Oval die from Spellbinders.

edt: I forgot to mention that I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch for the inspiration of this card.

That about sums up my card for today. Be sure to visit tomorrow. I have a denim masculine card to share.

I'm the last stop, but here's the hop order in case you missed a stop along the way. Now that would be a shame because these girls are full of inspirational ideas. Be sure that you leave comments along the way. One lucky commenter will receive the sets and dies featured today.
