Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hop ~ Day 1!!

Welcome to our Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops!  Hop along with the Divas all week long as we share our first looks at a few of the new products releasing from Verve on Friday night!  One lucky commenter from each day's hop will win the sets and dies featured that day, so be sure and leave a little love in the Divasphere! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize details and deadlines.

Today the Divas are introducing a beautiful new set, Sunny Days along with the new coordinating Leafy Sprigs Dies and Where Flowers Bloom Plain Jane!

You Are A Treasure:


If you're a fan of Verve flowers like I am, then you're in for a real treat!  Happy Days is a set of 22 stamps consisting of 8 flowers (2 each of 4 designs in 2 different sizes), three different types of leaves (2 of each), 6 sentiments and two coordinating button stamps! 

I used the two sizes of one of the flowers from the set.  They were stamped on patterned paper and cut out.  The flower centers were finished with a button and twine.  The leafy sprigs were stamped in Always Artichoke ink and cut out with the Leafy Sprigs Dies (L.O.V.E.).  The sentiment was made into a little flag and was popped up for dimension.  All of the papers are from the MME Lost and Found Union Square pad.
