Hello Creative Friends,
Today’s the big day for the Verve Anniv-Verve-sary Blog Hop and I’m so thrilled to join in since I’ve become a real fan of their stamps. I find their stamps to be encouraging and fun stamps and there’s a lot of Bible verses and inspirational sayings which I of course just love. It’s their 3 year anniversary and I wish them many more years of further success!
If you’ve already been hopping along, you arrived here from Martha’s Blog. If not, head on over to Julee’s Blog (owner of Verve), for all the info on how to win prizes (after all, what’s a party without presents?), and to start hopping from the beginning. If there’s a hiccup along the hop, you can always head to the Master Hop List to get the full list of links.
My daughter, Tara (my 12 year old) told me this card looked “so Verve-y!”. She said the colors were Verve colors. I guess because Verve packaging is aqua and brown and the website color, aqua. I decided I couldn’t go wrong with a “Verve-y” card for the Verve Anni-Verve-sary so this is the one I decided to use!
For my card, I used some brown and aqua patterned paper along with one of Verve’s newer stamps (from the June release), Always On My Mind. It’s a great set for general thinking of you cards which I sometimes need a lot.
I stamped the little hanging flower-ettes (not sure what to call them) directly onto the card and then re-stamped them on aqua card stock, cut the flower part out and glittered with some Dazzling Diamonds glitter and added them with foam mounts to the ones I’d already stamped on the card. The middles of them have mini brads. I layered a Top Note die-cut along the top of the card and the rest is pretty self explanatory.
Thanks for stopping in. Be sure to hop on over to Wendy’s Paper Therapy Blog to see what Verve-y goodness she’s cooked up for you!
Remember, just stop into the Verve Blog for the master list if you want to start at the beginning of the hop.
