Verve Guest Diva & July 2017 Release Spotlight Hops - Day 1


Welcome to Verve's July Release Spotlight Hops! A new release is just around the corner and for the next few days we'll be shining our creative spotlights on the new Verve sets and dies releasing Monday, July 10.

Today we are sharing inspiration featuring the new Always Time stamp set and coordinating Kettle Time Die Set. Check out the Verve Blog post today for the full hop list, prize details, reveals and a little more on this fun new set.

I love creating Coffee themed projects and this newest release is filled with fabulous stamps sets and coordinating dies that won't disappoint!!  For my first project I created a card using rich patterned papers that made me immediately think of COFFEE.  I created my focal point by stamping on the Tagged Rectangle Die and added a finishing touch by doing one of my favorite techniques...paper piecing.  As you can see I did this to one of the sweet little coffee cups that are included in the set along with the Coffee word die previously released.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Always Time (Verve Stamps)
Ink: Dark Chocolate (GKD)
Paper: Crumb Cake (SU!), White & Dark Chocolate (GKD), Honey Cake (My Minds Eye)
Accessories: Tagged Rectangle Die (A Cut Above Dies by VERVE), Coffee Word Die (A Cute Above Dies by VERVE), Kettle Time Die Set (A Cut Above Dies by VERVE), Award Banner Die Set (A Cut Above Dies by VERVE), 1/4" Hole Punch, Ribbon, Twine

I also love to create matching gift packaging for my cards and thought this would be perfect for putting a gift card to the recipients favorite coffee.  I used the same papers and design from my card to make them coordinate into a special little gift set.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Always Time (Verve Stamps)
Ink: Dark Chocolate (GKD)
Paper: Crumb Cake (SU!), White & Dark Chocolate (GKD), Honey Cake (My Minds Eye)
Accessories: Goodie Bag Die (Lawn Fawn), Tagged Rectangle Die (A Cut Above Dies by VERVE), Kettle Time Die Set (A Cut Above Dies by VERVE), Coffee Word Die (A Cut Above Dies by VERVE), Ribbon, Twine
