Welcome to Verve's April Release Spotlight Hops! A new release is just around the corner and for the next few days we'll be shining our creative spotlights on the new Verve sets and dies releasing Tuesday, April 10.
Today the Divas and special guests are sharing inspiration featuring the new Risen Savior stamp set. Check out the Verve Blog post today for the full hop list, prize details, reveals and a little more on this fun new set.
If you have come here from Laurie's blog you are right on track. If you just stumbled upon the hop, you can check the hop list below to get caught up.
I just couldn't put this wooden cross image down as I absolutely love it! With Good Friday and Easter Monday still fresh on my mind, I stamped and fussy cut three crosses and arranged them to resemble that heart wrenching Good Friday event. The sentiment in the set gave me an idea to overlay it on a vellum heart (inspired by Diva Laurie who is the queen of using vellum!). Grounded the scene with the black panel and balanced things off with some black twine. The vellum heart was a bear to adhere and reminded me why I shy away from using it, but was well worth the struggle.
Best part: the whole time I was creating this card I was humming "Because He Lives" as the sentiment is a line from that wonderful hymn. My heart is indeed full in many ways, especially the fact this card represents deep gratitude and what I hold most near and dear to my heart ♥
