Verve New Release Spotlight: A Cut Above



Remember the Sweet Scallop Tag from earlier in the week? And the snowflake tag with the same tapered shape, from Glad Tidings? Well, guess what? There's a Sweet Scallop Tag DIE to go with them! Yes, Verve has dies now! Well, a die, with more to come! The new line of dies is called A Cut Above, and I'll let Julee tell you all about it over on the Verve blog!


As you hop through today's spotlights, you'll be seeing just how versatile this die can be. As with our other hops this week, we've hidden a PRIZE on one of the participating blogs, so leave a little comment love as you hop around to be entered into a drawing to win today's featured die and coordinating single stamp! Deadline for comment entries is 7PM Eastern tonight.

For my project, I stamped and die-cut the Sweet Scallop Tag image, then layered on some paper-pieced mittens from Winter Mittens and an offset oval sentiment, also from Winter Mittens. The papers are all from Crate Paper's Snow Day collection, and the layout is this week's Mojo 162 sketch. Lots of glitter and bling on this one!

Thanks for visiting, and hope to see you tonight at 9 pm EST in the Verve Forum for our Release Party!
