Today's hop is spotlighting the Bloom Brighter stamp set and coordinating Blooming die set.


Today we have guest appearances from three rockstar Diva Alumni.... Amy Sheffer, Amy Kolling and Laurie Willison. I am so honored to still consider these amazingly talented designers part of the Verve family. I remember how ecstatic I was when each one said yes to my invitation to be a Diva and I'm just as thrilled today to hop alongside them once again! Over the years, each of these wonderful women has blessed myself and Verve with their time and talents. I am forever grateful.

Comment deadline for prize drawing is Thursday, August 31.

My card for today is bold and graphic. I love the drama of a pop of color with black and ivory. The flower from Bloom Brighter is embossed in black and then colored with Zig clean color real brush markers and cut with the coordinating Blooming Die Set. I also colored a few resist chipboard stars with the same marker for a coordinated look.


The tag is our Sweet Scallop Tag, still a favorite after all these years and I've stamped the sentiment on a stitched circle.  A sweet litle note to self planner sticker in the corner finishes things off so the recipient can be reminded over and over again just how awesome they are!



Bloom Brighter is a set of 13 clear photo polymer stamps that retails for $18. Our very first Anni-VERVE-sary release brought a special commemorative set where each design team member chose a quote to be made into a stamp. This set was called Beautiful You and the flower included in this set is one of my all-time favorites. It seemed only fitting to give this image an update and bring it back for our 10th Anni-VERVE-sary release. I gave the flower a fresh new look with more layers and some greenery.

If you downloaded our limited time Love From Me digi sets earlier this year, you might recognize the any day with you is my favorite day sentiment. I loved the fun font treatment and wanted it in stamp form, so it was the inspiration for the rest of the set.  I paired it with some super fun encouraging sentiments, perfect for celebrating a friend, a birthday or just sending an encouraging card.


Also in the spotlight today is the coordinating Blooming Die Set. This set of 4 steel dies will retail for $9. It includes dies to easily cut out the flowers and greenery in the Bloom Brighter stamp set.


The hop starts over on my blog, Poetic Artistry, so click on over for another card from me using this fun set. See ya there!
