Verve August Release Retrospective Hop


Welcome back to Day 4 of our Anni-VERVE-sary August Release Spotlight Hop! 
Today is the Retrospect Hop and Product Release!

Verve Stamps May 2016 Spotlight Hops

It's an exciting day as there's new Verve in the store this morning! 2 beautiful new stamp sets, 
3 die sets and a sequin mix just released and they're all available to order right now!!!
To celebrate our new release, we're putting on another blog hop! Today's featured 
focus is designer's choice, so you might just sneak a peek at a whole bunch of must-haves!



If you hopped over here from Marisa's blog, then your in the right place!

For this first card I used a verse from Scripture Medley 4 with my CTMH paper and ink and due cut the stars using Verve's Starry die.

For my second card I used a wonderful quote from the Kindness Matters stamp set. I used a cute paper pack from Paper Studio and made a double loop black grosgrain bow with my Zutter bow-it-all.

For my final card I used a wonderful verse from the Potter's Clay stamp set as well as the flower from that set and coordinating Pottery die set. I embossed my flowers in gold and watercolored them with my CTMH ink. I used a retired CTMH paper for this card.



Next up on the hop is the fabulous Betty! If you just stumbled upon this hop, you
