By the Light of the Silvery Moon

Happy Thursday!  Today’s the final day in our New Release Spotlight Hops and we’re shining our Verve spotlight on a new set called To the Moon and a couple coordinating Plain Jane singles.I’m the first stop along the hop, so be sure to check out the master hop list at the bottom of the post.  One lucky commenter on one of the hop spots today will win today’s featured stamps!  Hooray!


My card for today features the To the Moon set and the new Jotted Heart Die.  The I love you to the moon and back sentiment in this set has a trio of stars or hearts to mix and match with it.  I added the stars and accented them with some silver Stickles.  The sentiment is stamped on a Vintage Oval diecut and lightly sponged with marina mist ink.

I found a little scrap of fabric in my stash and cut it out with the Jotted Heart die, frayed the edges, then stitched to a cardstock heart and inked the edges with Marina Mist.  As I mentioned yesterday, my sewing machine and I are not friends, and my stitching was so terrible I decided to cover it up with silver stickles!  LOL

I had the glitter star in my stash and added a button and some silver cording to it, then decided I wanted some more glitzy stars, so I used the SU! small star punch and also stamped and cut out the moon from the set and covered with German glass glitter to match.  I finished off with some silvery ribbon and a background embossed with the Swirls & Stars embossing folder from Sizzix.

Okay, here’s the hop list for today!  Happy hopping!
