Verve October Release Spotlight Hop ~ Day 1

Click HERE for my Waltzingmouse Sneak Peek.



Welcome to our Holiday 2012 Spotlight Hops!  We're releasing four new sets and a plain jane this Friday, November 2! Please join us each day this week as we showcase the new sets and count down to our release! All of the stamps you see featured will be available in the Verve store following our release party from 9-11pm Eastern on Friday, November 2!

In the meantime, we've got a fun filled hop for you today! So let your fingers do the clicking and peek into the creative minds of Verve's talented Divas as they give you a little tour of what's to come! Inspiration abounds, and so do the PRIZES! 

That's right! We've picked a mystery blog from today's hop and hidden a prize! So be sure to give a little shout out in the comment section as you hop around to each blog on the list. We'll draw a random winner from all of the comments on the mystery blog to win today's featured stamps. Check out the Verve Blog for all the prize details and deadlines.




Today we're featuring the set Peace on Earth.  The sentiments are beautifully fonted and lend themselves to a variety of ways to showcase them with special framing.  I stamped the "magic" sentiment with Versamark and embossed it with Black EP (Judikins).  It was framed using an Antique Frame and Accents die (Spellbinders), and I used flowers and leafy dies as embellishments.
