Verve May 2014 Spotlight Hops: Day 1!

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 iinspiration Everything previewed this week will be available in the Verve online store on Friday, 5/23.

Today I am showing off a FANTASTIC new stamp set called Button Best! I just adore this stamp set and I used it to create a Mother’s Day card for my mom, thought this set is so versatile it would be great for any time of year just to show mom how much you love her!

Happy Mother's Day by Jen Shults, Stamps and dies from Verve Stamps

I started out with some gorgeous paper from Bella Carta’s Sew Lovely paper pad that I knew would be perfect for a card for my mom. I stamped the flowers from Button Best on white cardstock and then sponged the pale pink ink on with a sponge dauber and used gray Copic Markers to add the shadow detail between the petal layers. I stamped Happy Mother’s Day on kraft paper with kraft colored ink and then die cut it with the Rounded Rectangle die. I edged the horizontal pattern with pink paper die cut using the Scalloped Trim Trio Dies Set (hearts). The greenery around the leaves is cut using the new Sprightly Sprigs die set from Verve!
