Verve October Release Spotlight Hop ~ Day 3

Click HERE for today's Waltzingmouse post.


Welcome to Day 2 of 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 showcasing a new set called Joyous Noel, as well as a Plain Jane.  I will share a card I made with the Plain Jane tomorrow.  Today I wanted to focus on these unique and beautiful flowers.  I love the design and thought they'd be beautiful embossed with silver.  I also added some crystal glitter.  Sorry for the poor photos.  I have such a hard time photographing silver.  *sigh*

I'm in a CAS mood I guess.  I started out using these images with a beautiful die and couldn't get my card to turn out the way I wanted.  So it all ended up in the trash.  This is what I ended up with.


Here's a close up so you can see the sparkle a bit better.
And below is the hop list for today.


1. Julee6. Amber
2. Laurie.7. Amy
3. Maureen8. Andrea
4. Teresa9. Charmaine
5. Tosh10. Janelle
So glad you could stop by today.  Be sure to check back tomorrow.  Especially since everything will be available for sale that night!

Happy Stamping!
