July Verve Guest!!

Hello!

I warned you yesterday that I would be back today with some exciting news! Well, I am one of the July guest for Verve Stamps! I was so excited when Julee invited me! I adore Verve and they are the very first stamps I ever bought that had matching dies. I thought I had died and gone to heaven! :D


Soooo... welcome to the July 2014 Spotlight Hops!  I'm so excited to share some new Verve with you! The Divas and guest ( that would be me) will be spotlighting 3 new sets, a plain jane and a coordinating die set over the next few days, so keep your eyes peeled for some fresh Verve inspiration! Everything previewed this week will be available in the Verve online store on Friday, 7/11.

Here is my first card using the beautiful new set Moments Remembered.



I colored the gorgeous peacock image with my Copic markers and fussy cut him out. All peacocks are male by the way. My daughter informed me of this the other day. The females are called peahens. A little educational trivia for you there :) I added a couple of strips of patterned paper to the edge of the card. Stamped the sentiment and added the peacock with some foam tape. 




Want to win some shiny new Verve? We'll be picking a random commenter on one of the hop spots below to win today's featured products!
