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.

Hi everyone!!!

The release party last night for the November Release of Verve Stamps and Dies was amazing - so much fun and full of fun and exciting news too ;) (you can check out the party here) and today we are doing our final day of blog hops where the team is showing a creation from one of the new release - I peeked this letter wooden block set at the end of the party and thought I would also show it here today.

It uses the Bright Spirits stamp set, the Santa's Helper stamp set (with cute little Rudy), the Winter Tree Plain Jane stamp set, the Glad tidings stamp set from last year and the coordinating Snowflake Tidings dies, and the Sweet Scallop dies.

I took blocks about 2x4 blocks and sanded them down and painted them a metallic copper and then adorned it with the St. Nicks Fancy Pants paper collection. The letters were cut out of glittery red paper on the Cricut and then popped up onto the white papers. On each of the blocks I tried to use a different stamp or die combo and a different element - I truly LOVED making this and smile everytime I walk by it :)


My kids also love it - except every morning I see it rearranged in new ways - they are trying to see what new words they can spell from the word "peace" ha! Love their creativity :) here is a top view of the blocks, some have bling on it, some have ribbon, and one has a ruffled ribbon trim to it:


Please check out all of the amazing ladies on the hop today - and you could win the whole release by dropping a little love on their blogs! Sweet! 

Thank you to everyone who so kindly left comments on my blog during this release week! You guys are the sweetest - and you beyond make my day with your kind words and encouragement!!! Big hugs!
