Verve Holiday Spotlight Hop- Day Two

Welcome to our Holiday Spotlight Hops!  Hop along with the Divas over the next few days as we share our first looks at a few of the new products releasing from Verve this Friday night!  Whoohoo!! Today the Divas and a few Guest Divas are spotlighting Bright Spirits, Winter Tree PJ,  Winter Fun Die Set, and Love Birds Die Set.  

Bright Spirits is a large set with several images and sentiments in Julee's trademark fonts...happy sigh!! First up is a set of tags {just had to make tags in honor of my Guest DT win that was a set of tags!!}
 Close up of one of the tags...







I stamped two of the images onto whisper white, colored with copics, and cut out. The circle tag was cut with a nestabilitie die and thin cardboard, layered with dp. Added some strips of dp/lace/ribbon and stitching. Clear rhinestones on the images added a little bling.

I also made a card using the Winter Tree PJ and the Winter Fun die set. Kept this one pretty CAS. The lillybee paper was torn to create a little hill and popped some trees on top. The cardboard tree was made using the Winter Fun die set and the green trees were stamped with the PJ image and then, cut with the Winter Fun die set. Star was also made using the Winter Fun Die Set.
















I'm a little frazzled at my house... company coming in for the wedding, all those last minute "to dos" and I forgot to say "hey" to Wanda and Gretchen... isn't this fun!! And to Julee and the other Divas.... thanks for letting me join you this month!!

Here's the master hop list. One lucky commenter from each day's hop will win the sets and dies featured that day, so be sure and leave a little love in the Divasphere! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize details and deadlines.

Thanks for taking a peek and enjoy all the "eye candy" while you're hopping!!
