Anni-Verve-sary Spotlight Hop ~ Day 6!

Hi there!!  It's the final day of peeks for this week long Anni-VERVE-sary celebration and I hope you've enjoyed it as much as I have!!   Hop along with the Divas today as one lucky commenter from today's hop will win the sets and dies featured today, so be sure and leave a little love in the Divasphere! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize details and deadlines.

Today the Divas are spotlighting a fantastic new set, Making a Statement, along with the Rounded Scallop Frame Die and the Loopy Blooms Die set.

Birthday Wishes For You:


Making a Statement is so fun!  I am in love with this set!  It has the most fun mix of fonts and the flowers are so unique.  But I can't forget the adorable scallop frame and the two sweet birds!  There is nothing about this set that I don't love!  You will, too!


For my card I used some new (yes, I'm ADDICTED to patterned paper) MME Lost and Found TWO Blush papers.  I used the new Loopy Blooms dies to cut out the flower and the leaves.  L.O.V.E!!!!  I stamped the scalloped frame in Dark Chocolate ink and cut it out with the Rounded Scallop Frame.   The Rounded Scallop Frame cuts out the center so you get an actual FRAME.  It's awesome....I stamped the sentiment in Dark Chocolate ink and assembled my card.  It was finsihed with some Linen Thread tied buttons and machine stitching.

Beautiful card! I see you got the new Lost and Found! I got it yesterday, can't put it down, all 4 lines are so gorgeous! I love how you have used them here, just stunning! Have a fantastic day, Jackie!

Dori said...

I really like how well these different patterns compliment each other. I also like how the twine "gathers" at the bottom with the button. It's all so adorable!!

I really like how you've used those patterned papers together - it would look a shambles if I tried it! :) I like those colours too, very nice. Oh, and the twine. And the button - oh, just all of it!! :)

joannhw said...

I'm so enjoying the new loopy flowers!!

Denisse said...

wow!! its beautiful! i love the cute little scalloped frame :)

Marisa said...

I just love those flowers and can't wait to use them more. Wonderful mix of DPs and the twine down the side is perfect. Do you put on the string and then use a separate piece to tie around all the twine to gather it? Inquiring minds must know as it always looks so neat and tidy - unlike mine LOL!

Niki Estes said...

Very pretty! I love the colors and flowers!

Ravengirl said...

I think you might be the queen of patterned paper! This paper is quite divine and just makes the card! I adore those sweet little houndstooth die cut flowers!!

I love this beautiful card. Gorgeous DPs (you are so good at putting them together) love the stitching on them. The twine and button accents are wonderful.

Quilting with Jannette said...

You aren't alone in your love of patterned paper - I think that I have more paper than cardstock! (I've been known to buy cardstock to match my paper...!)
I love the mix of prints you've used - the blend of different scales works so well together - and they'd make a great quilt if they were fabric!
