September Spotlight Hops - Day 4

Hi Verve fans!  We're back with day 4 of our release week previews and today we're shining our spotlights on a new set called Poppy Birthday.

Since we LOVE to share our Verve, we've got a giveaway every day this week!  Just hop around to the blogs on today's hop and tell us what you think in the comments at each stop and you'll be entered in a drawing to win today's featured stamps!  Woohoo!



The first thing from the release I pulled out to try was the Poppy Birthday set and coordinating Build a Poppy Die Set.  I was just so giddy to play with them, and they did not disappoint!  I made a super simple card in about 5 minutes and that's the card that inspired this one..  If you want to see the Poppy Birthday set and dies in action, I made a short little video yesterday as I started on this card. I've embedded it below, or you can click this link to view it on YouTube.  After I finished the video, I added the Award Banner Trim, a few more sequins and some liquid pearl accents to dress it up a bit.



On with the hop.  I'm the first stop with another card using this fun set!

I'm a huge fan of poppies.  When I art journal, I really enjoy creating them with paper shapes and doodling around them, so I decided to create a stamp set and die set that I could use both for mixed-media projects and cards.  The set includes sketchy poppies in three sizes and solid blooms in 5 sizes, creating a myriad of options for layering, 2-step stamping, paper piecing or coloring.  I've included some super fun scripty sentiments perfect for birthdays, too!

  2. Love the fact that you have coordinating dies I definitely like anyway to reduce fussy cutting (mainly because I can never find my glasses, lol). Love the sentiment in this set too - such great fonts.

  9. I love this set-especially with the dies!!! I wish I had it to play with now as I'm working on a bday card that isn't inspiring and this set would be perfect for the recipient.I think it's a "must have" and a forever "go to" set. I can't wait.
