Verve October 2013 Spotlight Hop ~ Day 1

Welcome to Day 1, of Verve's October 2013 Spotlight Hops!   If you have come here from Jen's blog you are right on track.

We're so excited to preview Verve's newest stamp sets and dies with you! Over the next few days, the Divas will be shining their Verve spotlights on a different set each day, so stay tuned for a fun series of inspirational hops... and PRIZES, too!   If you just happened up on the Hop, you can follow the list below to get caught up. Everything previewed this week will be available in the Verve online store Friday night, October 25th.   

Today's featured set is Chevron Love and Heart Quarted Die Set.  I love chevrons and I love hearts so this set has been great fun to ink up!

I picked out some Echo Park and American Crafts papers, and then used one of the coordinating Wavy Hearts dies to cut out the heart image (pssst...the other heart image in this set coordinates with the Jotted Heart die).  A doily was my working mat and I layered the Elegant Leaf die (stamped with the matching image from Bloom and Grow), the heart image, and then added one of the hearts from the new Heart Quartet die on top.  The sentiment is stamped on a die from the Flag It die collection.  The heart trim is from the Scalloped Trim Trio die set and the yummy blue seam binding is from the Spring Fling Ribbon collection.  



Want to win some shiny new Verve? We'll be picking a random commenter on one of the hop spots below to win today's featured products!  So be sure to leave a little comment on all the blogs below to increase your chances!
