Day 3 - Verve's 10th Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops!



Verve Stamps August 2017 Spotlight Hops

DAY 3 - Saturday, 8/26/17
Welcome to Day 3 of the Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops!  It's time for another day of spotlighting the Verve release with the Verve Divas and special guests! We're super excited to have a couple very special Diva Alumni joining us for the hop today. Everything previewed this week will be available to order in the Verve online store on Monday, August 28. If you just can't wait, you can pre-order the entire release now as the August 2017 Buy it All Bundle at a 30% discount through August 27.

Today we're sharing our first projects featuring the Cake and Candles stamp set, another fusion of old and new. This birthday themed compilation includes some brand new birthday sentiments with a classy modern font pairing, as well as a few re-introductions of previous sentiments and plain janes.


If you got here from Maureen's blog you are in the right place.



I created a shaker card using That's My Boy Echo Park pattern paper and Cake and Candles stamp set.  




 I stamped the focal sentiment using Versafine Onyx black ink.  I used a variety of Verve's Sequin Mixes in my shaker.  




I colored and fussy cut the cupcake and added some wink of stella for some sugary shine.   I finished with a few gold sequins.





I am playing along with CAS(E) this Sketch.
