Verve November Release Day 3: Christ is Born

Welcome back to Day 3 of Verve's November 2014 Spotlight Hops!  



Verve Holiday Spotlight Hops


The Verve Divas and special guests are back for another day of spotlighting the new holiday release! And the wait is almost over... everything previewed this week will be available in the Verve online store tomorrow (Thursday, 11/20). So come hop along with us and see our first looks at today's featured products!

If you've come from the talented  Amber's blog, you're in the right place. If you just happened upon the hop, you can check the hop list below to get caught up.

Today's spotlight is shining on the Weary World set and Psalm 119:105 Plain Jane illustrated by Julee Tilman, as well as the coordinating Starry Stable Die Set.

I just adore this manger image in this set.  It's simple yet just delightful.  I first stamped it in black and then masked a panel to make my night time scene.  I also masked the manger so that I wouldn't get my blues all over it.  I tried not to put too much ink near the star so that it would look like the star was giving off light.  I then embossed in silver the sentiment and added stars using a white gel pen as well as a silver glitter pen.  The stars were made with the matching dies using craft metal sheets.
