Verve Holiday Spotlights- Day 1

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!! The day is finally here and let me say, Julee has a fabulous release {well, she always has fabulous releases}!! Today the Divas and a few Guest Divas {lucky me!!} are spotlighting four new Plain Janes and one new A Cut Above Die, Cross Set. I made a couple cards using the Jeremiah 33:3 Plain Jane and the Cross A Cut Above Die.

My first card uses the Cross A Cut Above Die paired with Verve's Richly Blessed. If you are new to Verve stamps, Julee always creates sets that mix and match with older sets, as well as the new ones, wonderful, huh!! Sentiment was stamped on a circle nestabilitie and mounted on two Fleur de Lis accents, distressed with ink and popped up for a little dimension. The cross image was stamped in Cherry Cobbler and cut out with Verve's Cross Die set. Added a little bling, lace, crinkly ribbon, and twine.


The next card uses the Jeremiah 33:3 Plain Jane. The sentiment was stamped on the Verve Classy Label- A Cut Above Die, heat embossed with clear, and layered on an embossed oval nestabilitie. Added some crinkly ribbon, a rose, and a couple stickpins {one with gold to add a little color}. 

Here's the full hop list for today and remember, 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.
