Oh, since the day I saw you I have been waiting for you...you know I will adore you till eternity...

Welcome to our January 2012 After Party Hop!  Last night we released 3 new stamp sets, 4 plain janes and 4 dies!  All of the new products we've been showcasing this week are available now in the Verve store! Be sure to leave a little comment love as you take a stroll through the Diva blogs. 

I created a fun card using the a bunch of the new Die Sets...and some old ones!


I cut out these fabulous hearts with the Wavy Hearts Die from some Funky Christmas paper, then added the little accent pieces in Melon Mambo, which are from the Charming Oval Die Set cut in half and embellished with Liquid Pearls. The little turquoise heart is from the From the Heart Die Set. I use these little hearts ALL THE TIME! I especially love them in felt. I love keeping a baggie full of die cut scraps so I can put them all together and use what I need. That way when I cut things, I fill up the plate and cut a whole bunch to use later!


Next I stamped the Happy Valentine's Day Plain Jane in Versamark and embossed it in White embossing powder. The finishing touch was the little butterfly from Twitterpated cut with the All Aflutter Die Set. Then I colored it with Copics and covered it with Martha Stewart Coarse Crystal Glitter.

That's all for me today, folks! One lucky commenter from today's hop will win the ENTIRE Release! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize details and deadlines. Have a fabulous day!
