July 2017 Spotlight Hops Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of Verve's July New Release Spotlight Hops!  We're excited to be back shining our sneaky little spotlights on another set and die that will release on Monday, July 10. Each day through Monday we'll be putting on a daily blog hop to showcase the new products and also give you a chance to WIN some new Verve! Hooray!  If you missed yesterday's hop, here's the link to the Day 1 post.

All of the stamps and dies you see along the hops will all be available in the store on Monday, July 10.  Before then, you can pick up the entire release collection at a pre-order discount of 25% off. So if you know you need it all, go snatch one up, as the sale ends when the release goes live. {grin}

First up in the spotlight today is a brand new set called Happiness Is.  It's a sentiment builder set themed around the different things that might bring you happiness. Since the twins were born, a teensy bit of silence is definitely on my list of happy things! Chocolate, coffee, books and you are right up there, too!


If you hopped along for the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. you might have already seen this card over on my blog, Poetic Artistry. I had a bit of fun watercoloring the mug from Happiness Is, then some masking of sentiments to build my own word picture sentiment. I also paired it with the previously released Coffee Helps set and the Partly Cloudy Die Set. The steam is from the Always Time set.

Enabler's List
Stamps: Happiness IsAlways TimeCoffee Helps  (Verve)
Paper: dp scraps, 7 gypsies tag, watercolor paper
Ink: early espresso (SU!), ground espresso (Ranger Distress)
Accessories: Springtime Stitches Die SetPartly Cloudy Die Set (A Cut Above by VERVE)


Happiness Is is a set of 12 clear photo polymer stamps that will retail for $15. It includes an outline large mug for the coloring and paper-piecing lovers and a solid patterned mug for those who don't. It also includes a starry straw cup, which was part of the Three Cheers Digital Set we offered last summer. I just love this image and simply had to have it in stamp (and die) form.


Happiness in a Cup Die Set is the coordinating die set for Happiness Is. This set includes dies to cut the cups in this set as well as cups from the Fill My Cup set we'll be showcasing tomorrow. I love it when a die set can work for multiple stamp sets, don't you? It also includes a happiness word die in the same font style as our other word dies. This versatile die set of 4 steel dies will retail for $13.


Okay, if you're still with me, the hop starts over on my blog, Poetic Artistry! Come say hello.
