Verve Stamps July Release - Always Time and Kettle Time Dies

A new release is just around the corner and for the next few days we'll be shining our creative spotlights on the new Verve sets and dies releasing Monday, July 10.

Today the Divas and special guests are sharing inspiration featuring the new Always Time stamp set and coordinating Kettle Time Die Set. Check out the Verve Blog post today for the full hop list, prize details, reveals and a little more on this fun new set.

 I'm super excited to be a Guest Diva for the July Release!!  Not only is it an incredible honor - thank you, Julee - but I'm a coffee addict and the Always Time and Kettle Time Die Set just speak to my soul!!  The tea/coffee images are adorable and perfect for using on pattern paper and the sentiments...oh, so perfect!


For my card, I used several coordinating pattern papers (I just love pattern paper!) and white embossed the sentiment on the distressed wood grain paper.  I stamped and die cut the pot and cups from pattern paper and filled in the "coffee" with a copic marker.  The finishing touch...what else?...coffee beans!

I also created a couple little gift cards using the Coffee word die on the right side one.  I stamped on the muslin bag with one of the sentiments and filled it with coffee beans.
