Verve Holiday Spotlight Hops

The Verve Divas and special guests are back for another day of spotlighting the new holiday release!

So come hop along with us and see our first looks at today's featured products!

Weary WorldStarry Stable Die Set
 
Psalm 119:105 Plain Jane

Here's my card using Weary World and the Starry Stable die set 


On a 3x3 inch square of Tim Holtz watercolor paper, I sponged a few blue Distress Inks to create the night sky. Next, using the Starry Stable dies, I cut out the stable and the smallest star. I colored the images with my Tombow markers and then adhered the small star into the big one at the top of the stable. I attached this piece to the 3x3 sponged background with dimensionals and created some snow fall and the snow drifts with white dimensional effects. 


I have a few piece of this polka dot vellum from Michaels that I've had forEVER and decided to finally use some! It looks a bit like snow to me, so I thought it worked! I finished the card off with a couple stamped sentiments and the silver cord.
