Verve New Release Spotlight: Christmas Blessings

It's New Release Spotlight time at Verve this week, and friends, oh my, are you in for a treat! The new sets are amazing, and I can't wait for you to see them! Before I get too ahead of myself, be sure to mark your calendars for this Friday, 9 -11 pm EST. That's when Verve will be hosting its Release Party in the Verve Forum at SCS, and I sure hope you'll join us if you can!

Today, the Divas are spotlighting four mini sets and two Plain Janes, so you're sure to see quite a variety. My sample features Christmas Blessings Plain Jane. Isn't that font so classy and elegant? I colored the stamp with markers for the two-color effect, then die-cut with a Labels Ten Nestabilities die. The loopy frame behind the sentiment was done with a Sizzix Frame Back Ornate #6 Bigz die. You could stop right there and have a nice tag to use with your Christmas packaging. I went ahead and turned it into a card by adhering the tag to a simple card base. All of the patterned papers are from the Tinsel & Twig collection by The Girls' Paperie.

I lightly misted the whole card front with some Sparkle Pssst shimmer spray. In this detail shot, you can see a hint of the sparkle (click for an even closer look). So festive!



Here's the official link list of today's spotlight hops.
