Verve Anniversary Release August 2017~ Day 1


Welcome to our 10th Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops! Verve is celebrating 10 years of bringing stamps to the world with a release of new and classic Verve! For the next few days we'll be shining our creative spotlights on the new Verve sets and dies that will be releasing Monday, August 28. We hope you'll join us as the design team, special Guest Diva Kelly Lunceford, and some fabulous rockstar alumni Divas share their inspirations with the new goodies this week.

Today's feature is on the Little Ones stamp set and coordinating Little Ones Die Set. A fusion of old and new, this baby themed set brings back some of Verve's most popular plain janes, mixed with a few new designs to tie it all together.

If you have come here from Charmaine's blog you are right on track.  If you just happened upon the Hop, check out the hop list below so you can get caught up.

Love the sentiments in this Little Ones set, and I love the "s" stamp so you can add it on to boy and girl if you have an occasion for twin boys or girls.   You can also combine sentiments to form your own as I did on my baby girl card.

I used this month's Viva La Verve sketch for my card (sooo happy these sketch challenges are back as I have been in Julee sketch withdrawal since Mojo Monday stopped) and I combined two sentiments from the set to create the one on my card.  The rattle and hearts were cut using the Little Ones Die Set and a touch of twine, buttons and bling finished things off.

For my second card, I just had to create a baby boy card so my baby card stash is even LOL!  Kept things on the simple side letting the colours pop off the white.
