Verve Release Spotlight Hop ~ Bloom & Grow

It's time to shine our sneaky Verve spotlight on some brand new stamps! We're counting down to Verve's release party this Friday night, April 15, with FOUR days of Spotlight Hops! And since we love to share, there's a prize hidden on one of today's hop spots! Just leave a little shout-out in the comments as you hop about for a chance to win some new Verve of your very own! You can check out the Verve Blog for all the prize details and deadlines.

Today the Diva's have a gorgeous new set to show you called Bloom & Grow.  Leave it to Julee to create MORE beautiful flowers.  I've always said that nobody creates flowers like Verve!  To go along with Bloom & Grow are two new A Cut Above Dies, Floral Circles and Elegant Leaves.  They coordinate beautifully with Bloom & Grow!


I pulled out my new Picket Fence Tiny Tablet by LilyBee Designs and got to work.  I stamped two of the flowers in two different sizes in Cherry Cobbler Ink and cut them out with the Floral Circle Dies.  The leaves were stamped in Pear Pizzaz and cut out with the Elegant Leaves die.  I layered the two flowers together, adding a decorative brad to the center.  The sentiment is from a new set that was peeked yesterday called Faithful Phrases.  A simple rounded corner and some brads finish the card.
