Verve August Release Spotlight Hop - Day 2

Welcome back to Day 2 of our Anni-VERVE-sary August Release Spotlight Hop!

Verve Stamps May 2016 Spotlight Hops

The Verve Divas and we guests are back for another day of spotlighting our new release!
Everything previewed this week will be available to order in the Verve online store
on Friday, August 26. Today we're sharing our first projects featuring
 the Kindness Matters stamp set and coordinating, Great Kindness Die Set.

If you hopped over here from Marisa's blog, then your in the right place!

For my card using the new set I followed the August week 2 sketch from Viva la Verve.
I stamped one of the wonderful sentiments from Kindness Matters in CTMH Slate
on a white circle cut out with Nestabilities Small Circles. I cut out the two smallest
flowers from the set using the Great Kindness Die Set and then I stamped
the flowers in Versamark and embossed with Recollections Silver Powder. I then
used my CTMH inks in Buttercup, Glacier, Sorbet, and Sweet Leaf along
with a water brush to color in the flowers to match the CTMH Zoey paper that I used.
I popped the flowers up using 3D Foam Squares and finished off with silver enamel dots.

Next up on the hop is the fabulous Betty! If you just stumbled upon this hop, you
