Thankful Hearts Blog Hop


After a fabulous day of set reveals and challenges over on the Verve Blog, we're topping off our Thankful Hearts Blog Party with a blog hop featuring three new sets that just released, all focused on thankfulness. This is the first stop on the hop, so you’re right where you should be to do the loco-motion with me!

My card for the hop features the new Thankful Accents set and some gorgeous papers from the Heart of Thankfulness kit by Sugarplum Paperie. For my focal piece, I embossed the large circle frame with Chocolate Chip ink, then cut out with Classic Circle Nestabilities. I did a little masking with various circle cut-outs to sponge Scattered Straw, Worn Lipstick and Vintage Photo inks on my circle to match the colors in the paper. The sentiment is punched out with a 1-3/8" circle punch and I stamped a little accent underneath it for interest.

The chocolate chip panel is punched on both edges with the fleur de lis border punch from EK Succes. I added some polka dot ribbon and wrapped a couple pink Sweet Blossoms around the knot. The final touch was some liquid pearl accents on each of the scallops.

Okay, that's all for my card. 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!

Thanks for hopping by! Next up is some amazing eye candy from the fabulous Amy Sheffer!

And in case you get distracted or there's a hiccup in the chain, here's the full list of hops:
