Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hop


Welcome to the Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hop! Verve turns three today and we’re celebrating with a hop, hop, hop! If you've already been hopping along, you arrived here from Charmaines's blog (Oodabug Alley). If not, head on over to Julee's Blog (owner of Verve), for all the info on how to win prizes (after all, what's a party without presents?), and to start hopping from the beginning. If there's a hiccup along the hop, you can always head to the Master Hop List to get the full list of links.

Here's the card I created using the Cup of Life set.  I cut out a teapot shape on my Silhouette as the focal point of the card and then I created a hanging tea bag with one of the stamps and some embroidery floss.  The set was also used on the inside as you can see in the second photo.

Supplies:
Stamps: Cup of Life by Verve Stamps
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Adirondack Raspberry
Paper: K and Co, Georgia Pacific
Accessories:  Quickutz Silhouette (teapot shape and scalloped card --- both downloaded freebies from various sources), Prima flowers and pearls,  embroidery floss, K and Co die cut, Fiskars punch

Thanks for hopping by! Now it's time to hop on over to Melissa’s blog (INKclinations), for a little more Verve-y goodness.
