June 2015 Post Release Spotlight Hop Day 6

Welcome back to  the 6th and final day of Verve's June 2015 Spotlight Hops!  It's been a whirlwind of fun this week, sharing our new release with you!  Thanks so much for hopping along with us.  Everything is available and on sale in the Verve Store, so why not head on over an do a little shopping?  :)   

We've got one last stroll through Divaland for this release, and today's hop prize is a big one... THE ENTIRE RELEASE!  That's right, you could win all of the stamps and dies in our new release (a $156 value)!  Just leave a little love for the oh-so-talented Divas and special guests as you hop around their blogs today and you'll be entered to win!

Commenting on all of our spotlight hops is open until Sunday, June 21. If you missed any, here are the links to the master posts for our Day 1Day 2Day 3, Day 4, and Day 5 hops.  

Well, being a little bit caught up in the release, I realized right before I sat down to make a card for this post that I hadn't made a Father's Day card for my Dad yet.  We're celebrating this afternoon since Mark's Dad's birthday is on Father's Day. So, needless to say, I needed a VERY last minute Father's Day card!

So I pulled out the Deco Borders and Sparkly Dreams sets and whipped up a quick little something.  I love how the shorter borders in Deco Borders look across the tag from the Flourished Tag Die Set, so I cut a tag from lost lagoon and then stamped the sconce border across the top of the tag.  Next I stamped the Father's Day sentiment from Sparkly Dreams in the center and sponged the tag with lost lagoon ink.

For the old olive panel, I alternated the diamond print border in old olive and mossy meadow ink, then sponged around in old olive ink.  The background is an old QuicKutz embossing folder I found in my stash that I lightly sponged with crumb cake and vintage photo ink.  Layered it all together and I was done, lickety split!

The hop starts over on my blog, Poetic Artistry!
