Winter New Release Spotlights: Day 3

Today is Day 3 of the Winter New Release Spotlights at Verve.  If you've missed them, you can head on over to the Verve Blog and follow the links to visit the Divas and see what they've been creating!  Today we're showing you two of the new sets, Merry Wishes and the Sweet Scallop Tag

My first card uses the Merry Wishes set along with some paper from the Tinsel & Twig Collection by the Girls' Paperie.  I used Beaded Ovals Nestabilities for the focal point and airbrushed Copic marker while the paper was still in the die. 

 I added some Dazzling Diamonds to the berries on the image.  This is a festive set that you'll love creating your Christmas cards with! 
 The second set we're spotlighting today is the Sweet Scallop Tag.  You'll recognize the Joy Plain Jane from the Day 1 Spotlights, but I stamped that after stamping my Sweet Scallop Tag onto Kraft cardstock with Crumb Cake ink. 
The Sweet Scallop Tag is great for adding to cards or is perfect for adding names to your packages!  Be sure to visit the rest of the Divas on today's list to see more with these two sets and don't forget to stop back tomorrow for more peeks!  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Here's the official link list of today's spotlight hops.  Happy hopping!
