New Verve Release - May 2014 Spotlight Hops - Day 1

Strength and Dignity

Welcome to our May 2014 Spotlight Hops!  
We're so excited to share some new Verve with you! The Divas will be spotlighting 3 new stamp sets, 3 Plain Janes and a couple die sets each day through Friday, so keep your eyes peeled for some fresh Verve inspiration! Everything previewed this week will be available in the Verve online store on Friday, 5/23. 

You should have arrived here by way of Chaitali!  If not, make sure you start at the beginning of the hop at the Verve Stamps Blog!  You won't want to miss of beat of the inspiration today and peeks at the new May VERVE Release!

For this first card, the Proverbs 31:25 Plain Jane stands alone for a faith-filled statement on my first card, with a few sprinkles of Shine Bright Sequin Mix.  The bible verse in these fabulous combination of fonts speaks for itself, truly beautiful!


Happy Mother's Day

The flowers in the new Button Best stamp set are AMAZING, especially die cut with the coordinating Pointed Petals Die Set and displayed with Elegant Leaves Die and Pastel Sequin Mix sprinkled about!  

On both cards, there are papers from the Teresa Collins Something Wonderful collection and white doilies from Freckled Fawn.
