Verve Final Holiday Spotlight Hop!

Welcome to our final Holiday Spotlight Hop!  Last night we released 2 new stamp sets, 5 plain janes and 6 dies to coordinate with new and old Verve holiday sets!  All of the new products we've been showcasing this week are available now in the Verve store! Be sure to leave a little comment love as you take one last stroll through the Diva and Guest Diva blogs. One lucky commenter from today's hop will win the ENTIRE Release! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize details and deadlines.


Were you able to join us last night for the Verve release party last night?  It was a ton of fun!  I always enjoy chatting with my paper crafting friends!  Anywho...onto my card!

I used the just released set, Bright Spirits for my card.  I paired this set with the awesome Mojo Monday sketch from this week.  I will definitely be using this sketch again!

I have been hoarding saving the new My Mind's Eye Signature Christmas for awhile because I was afraid to cut into all of the beautimous papers, but took the leap for this card.  Aren't the blues so soothing?  The sentiment was stamped in Dark Chocolate ink and was cut out with the Curvy Bookplate die.  I lightly sponged the edges with some Tea Dye Distress Ink.  The poinsettia/snowflakes were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and were colored with Copic markers.  Some machine stitching and adhesive pearls finish the card!
