Verve Spotlight Preview: New Mercies


Hi there and welcome to the first day of the Verve Stamps Spotlight Preview!  Today the Diva's are introducing a beautiful new set called New Mercies.  New Mercies is beautiful sympathy set with heartfelt sentiments and quotes plus beautiful floral and leaf images.  In true Verve fashion, the fonts are stunning.



I stamped Psalm 130:5 and the floral image in Dark Chocolate ink, cut it out with Circle Nestabilities and sponged it with Antique Linen and Tea Dye Distress ink before removing from the die.  The floral image was colored with Copics.  I also added some tiny adhesive pearls to the flower center.  The main image was then layered on a Lacey Scallop Circle image.  Some crinkled ribbon, an adhesive pearl/gem flourish and some machine stitching finish the card.  The papers are from the Gabrielle Collection by Bo Bunny.

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, July 8, with THREE days of Spotlight Hops! And since new Verve is something to celebrate, there's abig 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 the entire July release! You can check out the Verve Blog for all the prize details and deadlines.
