Verve Sneak Peek ~ Merry Wishes {SFYTT}

Hi there!  Welcome back to another day of Sneak Peeks from Verve!  Today the Verve Diva's are showing you sneak peeks of a wonderful new set called Merry Wishes and a new single stamp called Sweet Scallop Tag!  I have a sample using Merry Wishes, so let's get to it!


I started out today's card with Jen del Muro's Sketch For You To Try from last Saturday.  The dp is Good Cheer by October Afternoon.  The snowflakes were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black, colored in with Copics and cut out.  I added a small button to the center of each and finished them off with some Rustic Jute Twine in Cream.  Merry Christmas was stamped in Dark Brown Fluid Chalk Ink, was cut out with Circle Nestabilities and was sponged with some Tea Dye Distress Ink while still in the die.  I layered it on a Pure Poppy Scallop Circle and layered it once more on a Labels 3 Nestability.  Some rounded corners with my Corner Chomper, twill ribbon and adhesive gems finish it off!

Don't forget to check out the rest of the Diva's and what they have cooked up for you today!  And don't forget to leave comments along the way for a chance to win!

Here's the official link list of today's spotlight hops.  Happy hopping!

This is jaw-droppingly GORGEOUS Jackie! WOW! i love the look of a scalloped circle inside the Labels 3 die, the contrasting yet coordinating DPS in the same color family, with the flowers on top and the stripes on the bottom, your meticulous cutting of those star ornaments... WOW! I would not be able to part with this one if I were you!
