Verve May Spotlight Hops - Day 3!

Pin It


Welcome back to Day 3 of Verve's May Spotlight Hops!  It's an exciting day as there's new Verve in the store this morning! 2 beautiful new sets, 3 die sets and a sequin mix just released and they're all available to order right now. To celebrate our new release, we're putting on another blog hop!

Today's featured focus is designer's choice, so you might just sneak a peek at a whole bunch of must-haves!  If you've come from visiting Betty you're in the right place!!  Today I have two cards to share. This first one uses Beautiful Things along with the Beautiful Flowers Die Set and the Stitched Pennants Die Set!



The second card I have to share uses the Love Everlasting set along with the Everlasting Heart Die set and the Copper Blush Sequin Mix.  I stamped the heart repeatedly with an ombre ink.  I think it gave the card  toile look.  The little hearts and the right edge of the card are foiled in Rose Gold Foil.  I added some sequins to give a little more sparkle.  Next on today's hop is Christyne!  Thanks for stopping by all week and Happy Shopping!!

Verve May Spotlight Hops - Day 1

Pin It

Welcome to Verve's May Spotlight Hops! A new release is just around the corner and for the next couple of days we'll be shining our creative spotlights on the new Verve sets and dies releasing this Friday, May 20.  If you've come from visiting Betty, you're in the right place!!

Today we're sharing our first projects featuring the Beautiful Things stamp set, Beautiful Flowers Die Set and the Stitched Pennants Die Set.  I just LOVE the Beautiful Things stamp set and Beautiful Flowers Die Set and have loved creating with them.  For my card, I stamped and embossed the flowers in white onto blue cardstock and then die cut them.  I colored the centers with Copic markers to darken the cardstock and give some dimension to the flowers.  "Beautiful" was die cut in gold along with some white foam behind it so that it would stand up.  Next on today's hop is Christyne.

Red, White & Blue

Pin It


It's RELEASE DAY at Taylored Expressions!  All of the new products we've been sharing with you over the last few days are NOW AVAILABLE in TE Store!!  I have one more project to share with you and it uses the NEW Tagging Along Die.  Tagging Along is a fun new way to package little gifts or favors!  It creates a little box.  It's coordinates with the Tag Stacklets 1, which I've used it with for this project.

I created a shaker element in the front of the box.  The shaker bits were created using the Little Bits - Patriotic Confetti along with Summer Nights Sequins.  I just LOVE the little Statues of Liberty and those circle stars that are part of the confetti die.  So fun!!

The sentiment was created using the NEW Americana Script die.  I die cut it in Sugar Cube and then colored the pieces red and blue with Copic markers, and then die cut another out of gold cardstock and attached the gold stars on top.

Thanks for visiting! If you'd like to see more projects and new product information, please head over to the TE Blog for a complete list of our participating designers!  Happy Shopping!!
