November New Release Spotlight Hops Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of Verve's November New Release Spotlight Hops!  Weren't yesterday's spotlights fantastic.  I'm always amazed by our Divas and guests! We're back again for another day of hopping and shining our sneaky spotlights on the new Beyond Measure and coordinating Christmas Spirit Die Set . All of the stamps you've seen yesterday and today will be available in the Verve shop tomorrow, November 4! Hooray!  We've also got a giveaway along today's hop, so be sure to give a little shout out to the gals as you hop about for a chance to WIN some new Verve!

First up in the spotlight today is a brand new set called Beyond Measure.  It's filled with elegant scripture, sentiments and imagery to help make your Christmas cards truly meaningful this season. I am all about the layers, but during the holidays a simple card usually fits a little better into my time budget.  This card was quick, simple and also mailable!  A triple threat in my book, and bonus that it uses scraps from my huge pile of Christmas papers.  {grin}

I cut the papers first, adding a bit of ink distressing around the edges.  The bird and sprig images were stamped in versafine onyx black and colored with Zig markers, painting on a bit of Nuvo crystal drops to make the bird shimmer.  I then stamped the sentiment, cut the square with a die cut, sponging around the edges and added to a card base.  Easy peasy!

Want to win some shiny new Verve? We'll be picking a random commenter on one of the hop spots below to win today's featured products! So be sure to leave a little comment on all the blogs on the hop list below to increase your chances!
