Verve February Spotlight Hops - Day 3

Pin It

Hey there!  It's Day 3 of the Spotlight Hops!  Only one more sleep until all of these new products are available for purchase!  :)  Today the spotlight is on Purely Goodness and the Happy Anniversary Plain Jane.  I actually have cards using both today.

My first card uses just the Purely Goodness set.  I stamped the flowers in white ink onto black cardstock and heat embossed them.  The sentiment was stamped on a pink panel and then I die cut a border from the Scallop Trim Trio in a darker pink and added that to the edge of the card.  To finish it off, I used some seam binding from the Truly, Madly Deeply Collection to make a bow. 

My second card combines Purely Goodness with the Happy Anniversary Plain Jane.  I started by stamping a pattern as a background using different colors.  I tied some seam binding from the Stormy Skies Collection on the seam of the cardstocks.  The anniversary date from Calendar Countdown was stamped onto a piece die cut with the Flag It Die Set.  I finished the card off with some lavender pearls.

Everything you see previewed along today's hop will be available in Verve's online store tomorrow, Friday, February 22.
