Verve Guest Diva & July 2017 Release Spotlight Hop - Day 2

 

Welcome back to Day 2 of Verve's July Release Spotlight Hops!  The Verve Divas and special guests are back for another day of spotlighting our new release! Everything previewed this week will be available to order in the Verve online shop on Monday, July 10. And if you just can't wait, you can pre-order our July Release Collection at a 25% discount through July 9!

Today we're sharing projects featuring the Happiness Is stamp set and coordinating Happiness in a Cup Die Set.  These sets are filled with HAPPINESS and are perfect for your Coffee Creations!!

For my first project I created a card with lots of layers and yummy papers that made me think of the Coffee with a splash of cream!  Love how the color Crumb Cake totally makes me think of COFFEE.  I also had a little fun by paper piecing the sweet little mug in this set. 

 Supplies Used:
Stamps: Happiness Is (Verve Stamps)
Ink: Crumb Cake (SU!)
Paper: Crumb Cake (SU!), White (GKD), Honey Cake (My Minds Eye)
Accessories: Happiness In a Cup (A Cut Above Dies by VERVE), Small & Large Square Foil-Mates Dies (GKD), Simply Scallops Medium (MFT), Ribbon, Wood Veneer


For my second project I created a coordinating Gift Card Holder. It was super simple to create.  The base of the holder measures 7 1/2" x 4". On the 7 1/4" side you score at 2 1/4" & 5 1/4".  Adhere sides with adhesive (make sure gift card fits).  The belly band is 1" x 7" and I wrapped it around the holder and used a glue dot to adhere it to it's self to allow it to be removed.  Then I decorated it to coordinate with my card.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Happiness Is (Verve Stamps) & Always Time (Verve Stamps)
Ink: Crumb Cake (SU!)
Paper: Crumb Cake (SU!), White (GKD), Honey Cake (My Minds Eye)
Accessories: Happiness In A Cup Dies (A Cut Above Dies by VERVE), Corner Rounder, Ribbon, Wood Veneer
