Verve Sneak Peek ~ Richly Blessed {MTSC97}

Hi there!  It's New Release Spotlight time for Verve this week!  I'm so excited to show you some new and FABULOUS sets this week!  The peeks started yesterday and will continue through Friday leading up to the Release Party on Friday night from 9~11 EST in the Verve Forum on SCS.  I hope you're able to join us!!

Today the Diva's are spotlighting three new sets, Richly Blessed, Joy For the Journey and Vintage Oval Frame.  I have a sample of Richly Blessed for you today.  I combined it with another wonderful sketch from Mercy.....so I'll get right to it!


I started with the sketch and flipped it to work with the gorgeous cross and sentiment I wanted to use.  I stamped the cross in Pear Pizazz on PTI Rustic Cream twice, cutting the second one out.  I was going to pop it up for dimension, but just adhered it in the center (under the gem) and curled up each piece.  Love this look!  The sentiment I used here is two separate sentiments.....Jesus and then The True Gift Of Christmas.  They were stamepd in Dark Brown chalk ink.  The DP is Tinsel and Twig from The Girl's Paperie.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the Diva's and don't forget to leave comments as you're hopping around for a chance to win some new Verve!

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