Hope Blooms, Proverbs 16:9 Plain Jane and Floral Circles Die Set

Want to know more about today's featured stamps?  Read on...
Hope Blooms is an all-occasion set of 13 clear stamps. With three fabulous blooms and 10 mixed font sentiments, the name of the game is versatility.  Congratulations, encouragement, birthday, baby, miss you, feel better... we've got it covered, all in the beautiful font combinations you've come to expect from a Verve set!

With three sizes of blooms, the flowers in this set make stunning focal images, but also are fabulous for background building.  Use the set alone, or pair it with our new Elegant Leaves and Floral Circles dies.

When used in combination with the Floral Circles dies, pairing the three sizes straight across (large to large, etc.) will result in the outer edges of the flowers being cut off, giving a really fun natural look. Or, if you'd like a border around your flower, you can pair the blooms with the dies as shown in the photo.  Either way, this set is a whole lot of blooming fun!

And last but not least, we have our final sneak preview, the Proverbs 16:9 Plain Jane.  One of my favorite verses, I envision it for encouragement cards as well as a perfect verse for Father's Day, masculine birthdays, new jobs and graduations.

Thanks so much for hopping along with us this week!  We've had such a blast sharing our new creations with you and we hope to "see" you tonight at the party!

Happy hopping!
