Spring Fling Blog Hop

After a fabulous day of sneak peeks, challenges and set reveals, we’re topping off our Spring Fling Blog Party with a blog hop featuring the four new sets and five plain janes that just released from Verve. If you arrived here by way of Jen del Muro’s blog, then you’re on the right track, if you just happened along, be sure to head back to Julee’s blog for the start of the hop.

And to celebrate our new release, we’ve got a very special treat hidden along the hop. One lucky commenter will win our entire release! So as you’re hopping along, be sure to give a little shout out in the comments if you see something that makes you smile. The lucky winner will be announced Tuesday evening, {March 10} on the Verve Blog.

One of my favorite sets of this new release is Let it Shine - so many fun, happy images and sentiments!!

I created this cheerful card using one of the floral images from the set, colored with Copics. I then made a 3-D "frame" for the images by punching out circles from a piece of textured Old Olive CS and then popping that layer up on dimensionals on top of the image layer. (this idea was inspired by Kristina Werner). I took the colors from the Scenic Route DP and added some white twill ribbon to the top and was done!

Thanks for hopping by! Next up on the hop is Diva Mercy Kerin!

And in case you get distracted or there’s a hiccup in the chain, head on over to the Verve Blog for the full list of hops.
