To show off the new stamps and dies, I took to the most perfect sketch, Viva la Verve October Week 3, to showcase a LOVE collage!  The new stamp set, Chevron Love not only matches up with the Heart Quartet Die Set, but also the previously released Wavy Hearts Die Set, Scalloped Trim Trio Die Set & Jotted Heart Die!


I die cut some of the precious hearts with patterned paper and stamped a couple of them with images from the new set!  After adhering them together in a clustered collage, I stitched each one of them separately with the sewing machine.  I add a sprinkling of those dainty sequins, too, from the Pastel Sequin Mix that was released last month!


I must send a shout-out to my friend, Annette Allen at My Clever Creations!  She gave me pile of patterned paper pads when I visited Denver...and I used one of those pads on my card today, Echo Park Love Story.  Big hugs, Annette!

Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!  See you tomorrow for Day 2 of Verve Stamps October Spotlight Hops!
