Verve New Release Spotlight ~ Day Two

 bloomandgrow1

Happy Wednesday, everyone!!  Wow, looks like we got everyone going with the first taste of this fabulous Verve release yesterday..well, get ready for some more!!  Today we are spotlighting one fabulous stamp set, Bloom and Grow as well as 2 more dies!! Julee has read my mind and created a fabulous leaf image die to match the leaf stamp in Bloom and Grow.  As well, there is a set of three blossom dies that match the 3 different blossoms in the stamp set!!  You wanted more flower options?  You got it!! What’s neat about these flowers is that you can mix and match them with two step stamping, or use them by themselves.  This first card was two step stamped using the same ink pad, but the second image shows up darker because it’s been stamped second.  Up next is something that I REALLY love, stamping vanilla ink onto kraft!! How yummy is that background?  It looks like wall paper!

Here’s a closeup!
