Welcome to Day Two of Verve's Holiday Spotlight Hops! Hop along with the Divas this week as we share our first looks at a few of the new products releasing from Verve this Friday night! One lucky commenter from each day's hop will win the sets and dies featured that day, so be sure and leave a little love in the Divasphere! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize details and deadlines.
Are you ever in for a treat with today's sets and dies! Those who have already picked up previously released Christmas in the Air will be thrilled to see the Winter Fun Die Set, which includes a die for the tree in that set. And in case you haven't picked up Christmas in the Air (on sale now in the Verve store, by the way), now there's a slight variation of that tree in Plain Jane format: Winter Tree PJ! Not only that, but remember the sweet love birds in Love Story? Dies for those as well (Love Birds Die Set), plus the love birds make a reappearance in today's big set, Bright Spirits, which also includes, among many other wonderful images and sentiments, a six-point star image that handily works as a star, poinsettia, or snowflake. Versatility at its best! The Winter Fun Die Set includes dies for both sizes of that star, too! Whew!! Did you get all that? *grin*
For today's card, I went a little crazy combining papers and elements and came up with a busy, but fun holiday card. The papers are from Bo-Bunny's 6x6 Blitzen pack. I stamped the Winter Tree PJ onto ivory card stock, die-cut it with the Winter Fun Die Set, then paper pieced it using a green pattern from Blitzen. The tree is placed on a Sweet Scallop Tag and accented with one of the smaller birds from Bright Spirits (colored with Copics and die-cut with the Love Birds Die Set) and two snowflakes from Bright Spirits, colored with Copics and die-cut with the Winter Fun Die Set. If you look closely, you'll see an early peek (and literally just a peek) at one of tomorrow's featured dies, too. Julee peeked this die earlier this week, too. Check it out HERE.
Enjoy today's hop, and I hope to see you again tomorrow!
