Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight: Day Five


 Welcome to Day Five of Verve's Anni-Verve-sary Spotlight hops. Remember, one lucky commenter from each day's hop will win the sets and dies featured that day, 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, we're featuring a wonderful workhorse of a set, Tag Time, along with three more dies. Actually, four dies, because Tiny Sweet Scallop, is a set of two. If you love making tags, you're going to love this set and all of it's shapely tag components!

For my spotlight, I went with a delightfully out-of-character, clean-and-simple (CAS) design. I stamped the large rounded rectangle tag from Tag Time in light blue onto white, die cut it using the Tagged Rectangle die and stamped "xoxo" in black. The stitched grouping of colorful hearts was die-cut with the new From the Heart die set (featured yesterday) using paper from Jillibean Soup's Blossom soup collection. I added two rhinestone gems to the heart grouping and some random, messy, horizontal stitching to the card base for a little extra pizzazz. I deliberately left the stitched ends untidy, which helped give this exactly the homespun, yet graphic, feel I was hoping for!



For a look at even more Tag Time possibilities and all the coordinating dies, here's the list of Divas posting spotlights today:
