Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hop Day 2...


Welcome to Day 2 of the Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops!  It's time for another day of spotlighting the Verve release with the Verve Divas and special guests!

Today we're sharing our first projects featuring the Bloom Brighter stamp set and coordinating, Blooming Die Set. A fresh take on the flower from the retired commemorative set Beautiful You, this beautiful encouragement set is perfect for a vareity of cardmaking occasions.

For this Bloom Brighter card, I did a little Zig Marker watercoloring....

First, I took the card front die cut and lined it with vellum.  I heat embossed the sentiment, "you are a whole lot of awesome" on the bottom panel.  I added foam tape to the back of the card front to pop the vellum panel up.  After I watercolored up a few flowers, I attached them, along with some silver thread, to the front of the card.  I finished it off with some dew drops for a little bling.
