Anni-VERVE-sary 2014 Spotlight ~ Day 5

day5maureenplut

Welcome to our Anni-VERVE-sary 2014 Spotlight Hops! If you’ve arrived from Stacey’s blog you are right on track!

This month Verve is celebrating 7 wonderful years and our release is filled with all sorts of treats! All week long the Divas will be spotlighting new stamps and dies and each day there's a chance to win a $50 gift code to Verve just for commenting on our posts! So tune in each day for a new spotlight and a fresh chance to win. Everything previewed this week will be available for purchase in the Verve online store on Saturday 8/30.

Featured Products: One Cup (illustrated by Julee Tilman), Cuppa Tea Die Set, Psalm 34:8 PJ
Today's Prize: $50 gift code to Verve

Oh, this set is so fun!  I have a tea loving sister so this set will be perfect for making her all kinds of cards :)  I paper pieced the stack of tea cups with the same paper pad I used for the whole card.  Have I changed beverage camps!?  Not at all!  Although, I do enjoy a cup of green or mint tea on cold winter evenings :)  The Sweet Scallop Die was the perfect size for the sentiment and I added another one in the back for some extra visual interest.  A paper doily, stitching, twine, ribbon and some more Shine Bright Sequin Mix give this card a vintage flair.  Love it!

Want to win some shiny new Verve? We'll be picking a random commenter on one of the hop spots below to win a $50 gift code to Verve!
