Verve Stamps November Spotlight Hops: Day 2

Hi there, lovelies!! Welcome back to Day 2 of our Verve Stamps November Release sneak peeks!!

Verve Holiday Spotlight Hops

 The Verve Divas and special guests are back for another day of spotlighting the new holiday release! Everything previewed this week will be available in the Verve online store on Thursday, 11/20. So come hop along with us and see what's new at Verve!
Today's spotlight is shining on the Pinecone Christmas set illustrated by Chaitali Narla and the coordinating Poinsettia Pinecones Die Set.



Pinecone Christmas

Holiday Sequin Mix


I created this fun card using papers from a few different collections, and don't know what they are cause they're all scraps, haha! Sorry! More than likely it's MMM or Simple Stories! I stamped the largest poinsettia image and clear embossed it on the green striped panel. I stamped a sentiment on a piece of cardstock in brown ink, and then attached a poinsettia I cut out of a piece of book paper using the new Poinsettia Pinecones dies. We have new sequins this month too, the Holiday Sequin Mix. If you have any Verve sequins, you know these are sparkley beyond all imagining! So gorgeous! I took three red sequins and glued them to the center of the poinsettia. 


The "holiday favorites" piece you see is just a pice of the patterned paper I cut out:)
