Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops Day 3!!!

Welcome to our Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops!

As many of you know, Verve is celebrating its 5th anniversary this month and the party is just getting started! Come join us over the next 9 days as we showcase the 23 new stamps and dies releasing from Verve! We’ll be counting down the minutes and revealing all the new sets in our forum from 9-11pm Eastern on Friday, August 24, so make plans now to join us for our release party!

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 and Guest 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 sets and dies. Check out the Verve Blog for all the prize details and deadlines.

Today’s hop features Doodle Occasions. This is such a fun set with loads of versatile sentiments and coordinating little doodle images. I ADORE this set! I stamped the set of three flowers onto Choice Snow White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored it with Copics and die cut it with a Spellbinders Circle. I used MME’s Stella and Rose Mabel 6×6 paper pad on a kraft cardstock base. I pretty heavily distressed the whole card with a Prima Distress Tool and Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. I also used the Thatched Banner PJ, Pennant Banner Die and Flourish Trim Dies. I added a bit of hand doodling with a Sharpie Pen here and there around the card as well as a bit of burlap thread.

Don’t miss out on the Anni-VERVE-sary sale going on now!
