Verve Nov. Spotlight Hop ~ Day 2

Welcome to our Holiday Spotlight Hops ~ Day 2! Hop along with the Divas today as we share a look at a few of the new products releasing from Verve this Friday night! One lucky commenter from each day's hop will win the sets and dies featured that day, so be sure and leave a little love in the Divasphere! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize details and deadlines.

I went a bit geometrical on ya'll today. I loved the look of the flakes (or stars, or poinsettias...they could really be whatever you want.), and thought they'd be fun to make a pattern with and color. Stamped like this, they remind me of poinsettias. They're from the set Bright Spirits, which is filled with beautifully fonted sentiments, dove's, hanging ornaments, bells, stars, etc. This set has a little of everything in it to make a variety of Holiday cards.

I diecut the stamped dove with the Love Birds Die set, and glittered him up, and added a hanging heart to the sentiment on the inside.

This card also fits with the CCEE Stamper's challenge, this week, which is to include 3 different shapes. I have a button circle, a square panel of the images, and whatever shape you want to call with the sentiment. Be sure to stop by the CCEE Stampers blog to see what shapes the rest of the gals have included on their cards.

That about sums up today's card. Be sure to check out what the other divas are sharing today.

Beautiful, Tosh! Love your geometric background... so striking. You've got about 300% more patience than me to line them all up! LOL

Luanne said...

Who needs patterned paper? This is wonderful! Love the inside too, that bird is perfectly placed.

Marisa said...

Fabulous BG you have created for the first card! Love the heart hanging from the sentiment on the second.

Pretty cards, Tosh! Love how clean and simple they are and yet very very elegant as well.

Wow, love the clean, crisp look of both your cards - they're very different, yet both very fabulous!!

The inside is as cool as the outside, Tosha! And I do like that clean, graphic look you made on the front; very clever. :) Have a great day!

saday said...

I love the pattern you made with the flowers! And the inside of the card is just as beautiful.

Wanda Cullen said...

Gorgeous card...inside and out! LOVE that bold geometric design (I could never line up an image that many times and get it so perfect!). :-)

Nicole said...

Very cool take. Not what I expected from you, and definitely not something this stamping-challenged perfectionist could take on, but I really like your patterned front. Love what you did with the inside.

Steph Herbert said...

Love how clean your cards are! Reminds me that sometimes less is more. Fantastic job!:)

Luanne said...

very beautiful cards. love how you stamped pattern the poinsettias, the button looks great on the card. Love the simplicity and cleanliness of the second card.

The colors, stamping and big button are so warm and inviting on the front and the inside is just as pretty as the front.

Lovely CAS cards!

Olena said...

Beautiful card. LOVE this Verse stamp! Olena

Queen Mary said...

OK, color me confused -- one card right? Beautiful, PTI-esque geometric pointsettias with an inside of soft sponging, sentiment and dove -- others have called them separate cards, which they could be! Either way, I love the geometrics, something I'm working to master, and I love the sentiment,ornament and dove -- I'm lucky! I like it all!

Crafty Math Chick said...

These are both so pretty Tosha - your style is so versatile! I like your pretty geometric background paper and your elegant sponging in your CAS card.

Kate Pape said...

How long did it take you to make that geometric pattern. Such precision!! Fantastic job, and excellent use of the poinsettia stamp.

I love the soft, quiet feeling of the second example. The dove, the sentiment, and the sponged(?) circle with no harsh line.

Sandydee said...

Very pretty card.

wendy said...
