Verve Spotlight Hops - Be Blessed


Welcome to our May 2014 Spotlight Hops!  We're so excited to share some new Verve with you! The Divas will be spotlighting 3 new sets, 3 plain janes and a couple dies each day through Friday, so keep your eyes peeled for some fresh Verve inspiraiton! Everything previewed this week will be available in the Verve online store on Friday, 5/23.


Today I've used the fabulous Be Blessed stamp set. More gorgeous Verve flowers! And even better, these also match the Petal Points Die Set! More bang for your buck - love that!


I inked the flowers with Sage Shadow, then sponged Buckaroo Blue directly onto the stamp. I wanted a little more oomfph to the flowers, so tipped some of the petals with a B99 copic marker. I layered the new Sprightly Springs over the previously released Dreamy Leaves. The sentiment was stamped with the scroll image from Die Sidekicks, and I cut apart the sweet birthday wishes sentiment so I could angle it the way I wanted on the vellum scroll die.

Here's a peek inside my card...


Those stamped leaves from Be Blessed are just so fun! I love the highlights.
