Verve's 10th Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hop ~ Day 2


Welcome to Day 2 of the Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops!  It's time for another day of spotlighting the Verve release with the Verve Divas and special guests! We're super excited to have a few very special Diva Alumni joining us for the hop today. Everything previewed this week will be available to order in the Verve online store on Monday, August 28. If you just can't wait, you can pre-order the entire release now as the August 2017 Buy it All Bundle at a 30% discount through August 27.

Today we're sharing our first projects featuring the Bloom Brighter stamp set and coordinating, Blooming Die Set. A fresh take on the flower from the retired commemorative set Beautiful You, this beautiful encouragement set is perfect for a variety of cardmaking occasions.

For this card, I chose the papers I wanted to use first.  Then I used ink on an acrylic block and my water pen to colour parts of the bloom.  Yes, leaves can be grey when colour coordinating your cards!  I added a few extra sprigs with the old Dreamy Leaves dies so I could frame that gorgesou sentiment :)
