New Verve Release - May 2014 Spotlight Hops - Day 2

How Wonderful

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 sets, 3 Plain Janes and a couple dies 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!

The first card is for my very own "dear ole dad!"  There is a bit of word play with the "DAD" and coordinating sentiment from Wonderful Marvelous over the kraft card stock, and everything is layered up in masculine-themed papers.




Hope and Confidence 


This stand alone sentiment is Plain Jane Jeremiah 17:7...and it is perfect for the special men in your life...father, husband, son.  There is a bit of Banner Bundle Die Set to display this amazing stamp, too!

I used some new My Mind's Eye Market Street papers on both of my card today...fabulous manly prints in this collection!  There's a bit of The Twinery's Solid Caribbean Twine on the second card!
