June 2015 New Release Blog Hop Day 2


Welcome to Day TWO of Verve's June 2015 Spotlight Hops!  Wasn't yesterday's hop just fabulous? If you missed it, you can click here or scroll down.  Commenting on all of our spotlight hops is open until June 21. There's a chance to win new products each day, so be sure to hop around and leave a little love for the oh-so-talented Divas and special guests this week!  Everything we preview this week will be available in the Verve online store on Friday, 6/19. So come hop along with us and see what's new at Verve!



For my card today, I paired one of the border stamps from Deco Borders with the previous released Strong Anchor set to make a beachcomber style Father's Day card.  I stamped the border twice in night of navy, then twice in pacific point and finally twice in marina mist and then sponged over them with the coordinating color of Stampin' Pastels.  I used a little glue and a heat gun to splatter some shabby white embossing enamel at the bottom of the panel to look like a big splash of sand and surf.

I braided a length of rope trim to adhere under the sentiment, then stamped the rope circle from Strong Anchor in cherry cobbler and the father's day wishes from the same set in Pacific Point.  This is cut out with spellbinders and matted with white.  Then I distressed the edges and was finished!



Want to win some shiny new Verve? We'll be picking a random commenter on one of the Day 2 Hop spots to win today's featured products!   Our prize drawing will be open until 8pm Mountain on Sunday, June 21.  Just leave a comment on the blogs linked below and you'll be entered to win!
Deco Borders

The hop starts over on my blog, Poetic Artistry.  



Today's spotlight is shining on the Deco Borders set illustrated by Chaitali Narla. She had another BIG release last week with the birth of a new baby girl, so was unable to hop along with us today.  It's been great fun working with her (she's the NICEST person on the planet!)  and having her illustrate for Verve this past year.  But sadly this is her last release with Verve.  We wish her much success in motherhood and in all of her future creative endeavors! Thanks so much Chaitali!





Deco Borders is a 4" x 8" set of  7 clear stamps and will retail for $18.  

This elegant art deco set includes three 5.5" repeatable borders in the art deco style, as well as two shorter 3.5" borders with iconic deco imagery perfect for adding a bit of glam to your creations!

That's all for today!  We'll see you back here tomorrow for another day of hopping!
