November Release Spotlight Hop Day 3

Hi Verve fans! It's release day here at Verve and that means all the fun stamps and dies we've been previewing this week are loaded on the website, waiting to be adopted and head to wherever you call home!  We're celebrating with one more hop and a BIG prize... leave a comment on our hop posts today for a chance to be entered in our drawing to win the ENTIRE release!  Woohoo!

And to celebrate our holiday release in style, all of our stamps, dies and embellishments are 25% off! Hooray for good deals! I can't wait to see the fun things you create with this release.  Be sure to #vervestamps if you post on social media so I can come take a look-see.

My card for today looks quite a bit like yesterday's card using the Beyond Measure stamp set.  That's because I used the Viva la Verve November Sketch 1 that I'm hosting starting today. It's a simple layout that's just perfect for easy Christmas designs and I hope you'll play along! I dressed the sketch up today, adding a few more layers to the square panel.

The holy family silhouettte stamp is embossed with a dark brown embossing powder and then cut out with a stitched circle die and matted with a pinking circle die cut. The sentiment is embossed directly onto the designer paper and I ran the thin pennant through my paper crimper for a little interest.  I finished off with the star embossed in gold and cut with the coordinating Christmas Spirit Die Set.

Okay, on with the hop. Today's featured focus is designer's choice, so you might just sneak a peek at a whole bunch of must-haves!

I'm the first stop on the hop over on my blog, Poetic Artistry.

Want to win some shiny new Verve? Today's prize is a BIG one. We'll be picking a random commenter on one of the hop spots below to win our ENTIRE new release! So be sure to leave a little comment on all the blogs below to increase your chances!
