Verve Release Spotlight Hop ~ Love Deepens

Hi there!  It's day three for the Verve release sneak peeks and 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 beautiful sentiment set to show you today called Love Deepens.  This is THE PERFECT set for any special woman in your life.  And in true Verve fashion, the font is as beautiful as the sentiments!


I paired Love Deepens with yesterday's spotlight set, Bloom & Grow.  The layout is Jen del Muro's Sketch For You To Try for the month of April.

I cut a square of white cardstock with Square Nestabilities and sponged it with Rose Coral Fluid Chalk Ink while it was still in the die.  I then stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black.  The flowers were stamped in the same Rose Coral ink and cut out with the coordinating Floral Circle Dies.  The leaves were stamped in Pear Pizazz and cut out with the Elegant Leaves Die (L.O.V.E).  The flowers were layered together and attached with a decorative brad from my stash.  I finished the card with some machine stitching.

It's time to hop around to see some more beautiful samples from the Diva's!
