October Day 2 New Release Spotlight Hop

Welcome to Day 2 of our  October 2015 Spotlight Hops!  All of our spotlighted products from yesterday and today are available to order in the Verve Store and ON SALE 20% off! Hooray!

Stock Update: We had a few manufacturing delays with this release, and our full shipment has not arrived yet.  We have limited quantities of the Just Breathe set on hand and if they run out before the next shipment arrives, we'll be accepting pre-orders.  The Good Work set is currently pre-order only.  I'm expecting  they'll arrive sometime within the next week and be in your hands very soon. :)  Please note, if you order an item with a pre-order status, your entire order will be held to ship once all items are on hand.

Okay, on with the hop!  In addition to some spectacular peeks at the new stamps, there's a chance to win today's featured products, so be sure to hop around and leave a little love for the oh-so-talented Divas! Scroll down for all the deets and the full hop list.

My card inspiration started with this week's Mojo Monday 420 sketch.  I used the new Good Works Flower Die Set to make the top of the tag shape and cut it to the size I needed for my sentiment, rounding the corners for a fun finished look.  The title sentiment from the Good Work  set is stamped in early espresso and then stamped again and offset with blushing bride for a bit of a shadow effect. I used a rays stencil and blushing bride ink to add the rays for a little interest down the side.

The flowers are stamped in calypso coral and then cut with the coordinating Good Works Flower Die Set.  I then sponged the inner portions with blushing bride and the outer edges with calypso coral and layered on dimensionals. For the tag topper, I added some ribbon from the Spring Fling Ribbon Collection, a wooden medallion and a bit of scrapper's floss that I inked with coordinating inks for a hint of blush. The card base is embossed with the woven embossing folder and I sponged with blushing bride and ground espresso inks.

Want to win some shiny new Verve? We'll be picking a random commenter on one of the Day 1 Hop spots to win today's featured products!

Today's spotlight is shining on the Good Work set and coordinating Good Work Flower Die Set. Also in the spotlight is the Psalm 150:6 plain jane and beautiful new Frosted Snowfall Sequin Mix.

This elegant scripture set has long verses perfect for adding to your Bible journaling or as a quick focal point to an encouraging card or bookmark. The layered flowers add a bit of whimsy and a wheat stalk and some maple leaves make this set truly one for all seasons.
