Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hop ~ Day 5

day5brighterdays

Hello! We are on our ‘hump day’ of the Verve New Release Spotlight Hops!  Woohoo, not too many days now :)  If you’ve arrived from Laurie S.’s Blog, you are right on track, if not, check out the Blog List below. You’ll want to visit each participant and leave a little comment love for the chance to win today’s featured stamps and dies…

Today’s card showcases the soon to be released Brighter Days set along with the Scalloped Flowers and Arrow dies.  Now the arrow that I’ve used is a bit longer, but I felt it was too long for the card so I cut the notched end a bit…perfect! I’ve also added an older sentiment from Small Phrases because I love to add another little coordinating sentiment somewhere :)  Before I go, I just wanted to share a photo of how I’m preparing for all these new Verve Stamps!  Binder #4!  They didn’t have the exact same turquoise this year, but that will remind me EXACTLY where this over the top fabulous release is!

Lovely card! I love the notepage with the sentiment stitched to the side, such a neat touch. Really love the Brighter Days sentiments and how you can use the arrow.

Colleen Dietrich said...

I like your method of storing Verve, Maureen! What a good idea.

Your card is a beauty too, with a neat mix of dimension and images. The little binder clip is super sweet, goes well with the 'notebook' page. :)

Holy moly! What a stunner! I love all these flowers, plus the layers upon layers of beauty. Gorgeous ribbon and buttons, too. You must teach me your stitching :)

I started binders as you'd suggested, but I don't find my stamps stay in them worth a darn when I lay them down to look at them.
