July Spotlights Day 4 Blog Hop

Hi Verve fans!  Release day is here and that means all of the stamps and dies you've seen previewed this week are available in the Verve online store right now!  Hooray!  We're celebrating with one last hop and today's theme is Diva's choice. Stroll along and see what each Diva chose to highlight from this release.  It's gonna be a fun one, and don't forget to leave some comment love, because today's prize is a doozie... the ENTIRE July 2014 Release Collection!

Before I get on with the hop, here's a little shopping info:  You can buy any of the sets in our July release individually, or if you've gotta have the whole enchilada you can buy the July 2014 Release Collection and save 20%! The collection includes all of the stamps and dies in our July 2014 release, bundled together for a limited time.

And here are shopping links for each of the products individually, on sale for 10% off!

Here's a quick little card I created with the Happy Place set.  A little more of my crumb cake addition in action.  {grin}  I embossed the big flower in black on the crumb cake panel, then colored with Copic markers.  Next I took a strip of Peach Parfait card stock and stamped the sentiment in black, then stamped the same flower in Peach Parfait off the opposing edges.  The little border is cut with the Scalloped Trim Trio Die Set from Poppy Parade card stock and I added a little Walnut Stain distress ink to all the panels.  I finished off with a bit of glossy glaze, stardust stickles and a rhinestone for the flower centers.

Supply List
Stamps: Happy Place (Verve Stamps)
Paper: crumb cake, poppy parade, peach parfait (SU!)
Ink: peach parfait (SU!), walnut stain (distress ink), black, copic markers
