Welcome to Day Two of Verve's Holiday 2012 Spotlight Hops!
We're releasing four new sets and a plain jane this Friday, November 2. Please join us each day this week as we showcase the new sets and count down to our release. And be sure to join us Friday evening from 9-11 Eastern for our Release Party.
Today's featured set is Merry & Bright. If you love snowflakes, fantastic all-purpose holiday sentiments (especially ones you can build and customize), and Julee's amazing font combos, this set is for you! Below is the full hop list. Be sure to leave comments along the way for a chance to win your very own Merry & Bright set.
For my peek, I combined two of the sentiments onto a large pennant strip:
then added a sweet little "from all of us" along the bottom:
Each of the three sizes of snowflakes has been stamped in blue ink, circle punched, colored in with a clear Spica pen, and topped with a glittery pearl gem. I went a little crazy with the whole circle motif, offsetting patterned paper circles behind each snowflake, then accenting with buttons, pearls, and rhinestones. Along the right, I added a Pennant Trim border die-cut in a dark taupe color. The papers are all from Carta Bella's Winter Fun 6x6 collection, except for the card base, which is Stampin' Up's Soft Suede.
If you're going through the hop in order, your next stop is Andrea. Enjoy!
