July Spotlights Day 2 Blog Hop

Hi there Verve fans!  We're back with Day 2 of our July Release Spotlight Hops!  I'm getting so excited about our upcoming release this Friday.  It's always so awesome to see all of the designers' first looks at the sets.  I'm just a little bit giddy to see what they've all done with today's set, so let's get to it!

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!

Today's set is the second set in Chaitali's debut release!

Chaitali joined our design team in May and has been keeping super busy illustrating sets for you.  The behind-the-scenes process takes a while, but I'm so glad to finally be sharing some of her fantastic illustrations with you in stamp form.  Both yesterday's set, Moments Remembered and today's set, Peaceful Medallions, are Indian inspired designs that are unique, versatile, elegant, and a whole lot of wow.  Be sure to check out Chaitali's blog today for her own back story on this set.

Peaceful Medallions, is an elegant take on Rangoli folk art design.  With small and large ornate medallions that can be mixed and matched for countless options, these medallions are super versatile.  The two larger medallions are also perfect as frames for smaller sentiments.  And since the medallions coordinate with common sizes of circle punches and dies, this set has so many layering possibilities.  Peaceful Medallions will retail for $18 and includes 13 clear photopolymer stamps on a 4" x 8" acetate sheet.

All of the stamps and dies featured this week will be available for purchase in the Verve Store on Friday, July 11.

Thanks so much for hopping with us today!  Have a great day and we'll see you back here tomorrow for some more fresh new looks at VERVE!
