Welcome to the first ever official Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hop. Verve turns two today and we’re celebrating with a hop, hop, hop! The party kicked off over on the Verve blog, so if you’ve just happened along, be sure to hop on over there to start from the beginning! And to make this party a real shindig, there’s a mystery jackpot hidden at one of the stops along the hop. One lucky commenter on that blog will win Verve’s entire August release! But of course, it wouldn’t be a mystery if you knew which blog, would it? So if you’re feeling the love, give a little shout out to the bloggers in the hop and you just might have a reason to jump for joy!
One of my very favorite Verve Stamps is Up, Up, and Away. The air balloon is pieced. The clouds are cut out and popped up and I added a little glitter. I made some hills, distressed the edges with ink, and add a zip zag stitch on my sewing machine. The I added the trees. the larger tree is cut out and popped up, and I added a few rhinestone. Then I added some lace, ribbon, and a butterfly charm. The edge punch is Martha Stewart. All the edges are sponged with Tim Holtz distressing ink in Tea Dye.
Thanks for stopping by! Now it’s time to hop on over to Carolina's for a little more Verve-y goodness.
