Teachers Count...



Welcome to our May 2013 Spotlight Hops!  Today we're shining our Verve spotlights on the new stamps Teachers Count, Apple Die Set, All Occasion, Occasion Frame Die and Promoted Plain Jane. Each of the release team Divas and Guest Divas below has posted her first look at these new stamps today. As you hop through the list below, you just might see some super sneaky peeks of new coordinating dies and ribbons, so keep your eyes peeled! Everything you see previewed along today's hop will be available in Verve's online store on Friday, May 10.

I stamped the image in Versafine Black Onyx and then added in the apple die and image with some foam tape.  I colored the apple with Copics and then added a layer of Glossy Accents.  Love how the apple just pops off the card!

As a former teacher, I can guarantee that your card will be treasured! I love this sentiment - one that speaks to what I aspired to do during my many-years' career (and one I'd consider returning to, depending...). Thank you for sharing and inspiring. I'm in awe of your 'white space is awesome' approach!!
