Verve's October Spotlight Hops - Day 1

Hi Verve fans!  We're taking a short break from our Tag You're It Diva Dare to bring you a brand new release!  We've got four days of blog hopping planned to celebrate our release that's schedule for this Friday night, October 25, then we'll jump back to our Diva Dare on Monday.  So stay tuned for a fun series of inspirational hops... and PRIZES, too! 

This release is filled with chevron, labels, tags and some super fun holiday sentiments and images.  Designed to work well with 3 new dies and also a few of our existing dies, your holiday projects will come together in a snap!

Today's Blog Hop Prize:  Chevron Love + Heart Quartet Die
Comment Deadline for Prize Drawing:  Sunday, 10/27 at 5pm Mountain

For my preview I decided to feature the Heart Quartet Die along with a Happy Birthday sentiment from Chevron Love   The Heart Quartet Die is similar to our Starry Die, as it is a single die that cuts four hearts at once.  It doesn't cut any alignment holes, so you can use both the negative and the positive cuts from the die.  Here I sent the die through with two colors of designer paper and a crumb cake circle, then sponged all the edges and lined up.  I popped the largest heart up for a little more dimension then scattered some mini heart rhinestones and embellished with pearls.

Supply List:
Stamps: Chevron Love (Verve Stamps)
Paper: Bramble Rose (MME), crumb cake, early espresso (SU!)
Ink: early espresso (SU!), vintage photo (Ranger)
Accessories: Heart Quartet Die (A Cut Above by VERVE), circle nestabilities (Spellbinders), pearls, rhinestones, corner rounder

Chevron Love isn't a holiday set like the rest of our release, but it is great for making cards and tags for gift giving!  You'll see images to fit the Jotted Heart Die, Wavy Hearts Die Set, All Aflutter Die Set and even a couple that work with the Starry Die and Arrow Die.  A couple of string-less balloons round out the images and you'll have a blast with the new Heart Quartet Die that can be layered inside the chevron wavy heart from this set.  Lots of fun and such a versatile set!

 Thanks so much for stopping by today!  We'll be back again tomorrow with our first looks at another new set and die!  Until then, be sure to hop around if you haven't already!
