The new Verve sets are now officially released, and we’re topping off today's Thankful Hearts festivities with a blog hop. If you arrived here from Julee, you’re right where you should be. If you’ve just happened by, then you’ll want to go one step back, to Poetic Artistry, where Julee kicks things off for us tonight. To make this hop even sweeter, we’ve got a special treat hidden along the way for one lucky commenter. So if you see something that makes you smile, be sure to give a little shout-out in the comments for a chance to win our entire release!
For my project, I combined stamps from Thankful Accents and Celebration of Thanks to make a vintage-style thank you card.
The sentiment, from Celebration of Thanks, is stamped on designer paper from the Life Stories Collection by My Mind's Eye. Behind that is a vertical strip made from some of the punch-outs in the same MME collection and some dark brown twill. Then behind that is the circle image from Thankful Accents, which has been stamped onto one of the other punch-outs. Last is the card base, made of brown card stock topped with a piece of Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossed Kraft card stock with EK Success Scalloped Diamond borders. I embellished with some lace, buttons, and machine stitching.
Some of the design elements are carried over to the inside, where I added another sentiment, this time from Thankful Accents:
Your next stop on the hop is the oh-so-talented Mercy! I know she'll have something gorgeous for us to drool over!
Enjoy the rest of the hop!
