Verve Stamps October Spotlight Hops ~ Day 2

Welcome to our October 2013 Spotlight Hops!  We're so excited to preview Verve's newest stamp sets and dies with you! Over the next few days, the Divas will be shining their Verve spotlights on a different set each day, so stay tuned for a fun series of inspirational hops... and PRIZES, too! Everything previewed this week will be available in the Verve online store Friday night, 10/25.

Today, we're peeking the Holiday Treats stamp set and Cup of Cheer die set!


My card today is pretty simple, I wanted to highlight these amazing chevron tags and the adorable coffee cup/sentiment! 
I saw a card at Target this week that had like a circus tent in the background and some tickets hung on ribbon on the front of the card, it's what inspired me to make this card!


The chevron tag stamp coordinates with the Tagged Rectangle Die, and I can see myself using it MANY times in the future!! It's great for every day cards as well as some fun holiday cards!
The paper I used is from Basic Grey's Aspen Frost collection, as well as Kraft and Rustic Cream from PTI. The ribbon is from the Polka Dot Basics collection from Verve and the button and twine from PTI.
