Verve November Release Spotlight Hops - Day 2


Verve Stamps November 2016 Spotlight Hops

Welcome back to Day 2 of Verve's November Release Spotlight Hops!  The Verve Divas and special guests are back for another day of spotlighting our new release! Everything previewed this week will be available to order in the Verve online shop on Friday, November 4.

Today we're sharing our first projects featuring the Beyond Measure stamp set and coordinating Christmas Spirit Die Set.  If you've arrived from visiting Laurie, you're in the right place!!  I just LOVE this stamp set and plan to use it for Christmas cards this year.  Since I'd be mass-producing them, I had to keep it pretty simple so that the process wouldn't take too long!  :)  I stamped the three wise men in black and die cut it with a stitched circle die.  I added a little shadow below each wise man with a Copic marker.  The star was stamped and die cut, then adhered with foam tape.  The sentiment was stamped and embossed in gold.  I matted the piece with gold mirror cardstock to bring out the sentiment.  I hope this has inspired you to create your own Christmas cards this year!  Next on today's hop is Betty!!  Thanks for stopping by!
