Day 2 of Verve's November Inspirational Blog Hop!

Hello and Welcome! 

It is Day 2 of Verve's November Release Spotlight Hops!  Everything previewed this week will be available to order in the Verve online shop on Friday, November 4. 
Today we're sharing our first projects featuring the Beyond Measure stamp set and coordinating Christmas Spirit Die Set.  You should have come her from Julee's blog.  If not, you may want to head there to start from the beginning~


What a fabulous set!  Gorgeous sentiments and fonts plus elegant images make for stunning cards!


I started by heat embossing the small pine image on water color paper.  I added my color using Distress inks- I believe this is Candy Apple Red.  
I stamped several of the foliage images and die cut them with the matching dies.  I played around with various layouts and then decided that what I needed to finish it off was the dove image. It is stamped in a blue grey from Memento and sparkly goodness is added with the Wink of Stella Brush.


For even more sparkly goodness, I added a layer of gold behind a couple of layers.  I won't share my secret that this gold paper is actually gold wrapping paper.  Shhhh!  
The sentiment is heat embossed in gold and clear sequins are added to finish it off!  

From here, you are headed to the amazing Lynn Mangan's Blog!
