Tag Time

Welcome to Day 5 of our Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hop series! Hop along with the Divas all week long as we share our first looks at a few of the new products releasing from Verve on Friday night! One lucky commenter along today's  hop will win today's featured sets and dies.  So be sure and leave a little comment love as you hop around the Divasphere!  Check the Verve Blog for prize details and deadlines.

Our spotlight for today is shining on a new set called Tag Time, and its coordinating dies...Tagged Rectangle, Curvy Bookplate and Tiny Sweet Scallop Die SetMy card features the tagged rectangle die and coordinating stamp from Tag Time as well as a couple of other sets and dies we previewed earlier this week.



This set is built around a few different types of tags and some small words.  Lately I really like the look of words cut out and attached to a page, so I included several words in this set that you can do this with, or mix and match to make your own sentiments.  Here I stamped the dream, wish and hope words from Tag Time on Wild Wasabi, cut out and stapled to my card.

The focal point of the card started with the graph version of the Tagged Rectangle, which I distressed with ink a bit, trimmed by hand and then matted on the Tagged Rectangle Die cut in black.  Next I used the same tag stamp to stamp a background on the pennant nestability die cut, then trimmed off the end, hand cut a black mat for it and added the carpe diem sentiment from Words of Wisdom.  I tucked a couple leafy sprigs (stamped with stamps from Sunny Days and cut with the Leafy Sprigs Die Set) around the pennant and added some rhinestones and frosted pearls from Pizzazz Aplenty.  The background is made from strips of designer paper layered together to create a backdrop for my tag.  Here's a detail shot of the stamping...


Since we're speaking of tags, after seeing all of today's inspiration with tags, don't you want to add one to a card?  Well, if so, we've got just the challenge for you...our Tag Your It! Get Your Diva On Challenge.  The challenge is to incorporate a tag on your card or project OR make a set of tags.  Easy peasy!  The winner of the challenge gets to be a Guest Diva for a future release.  It could be YOU posting sneak peeks next time around just like Marisa and Sarah have been this week, so be sure to play along!  But hurry, the deadline is this Sunday. Check out all the details on the challenge thread in our forum.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Be sure to check out what the rest of the Divas have to share today and leave a little comment love as you hop about for a chance to win!  Next up on the hop is ... Charmaine!

  2. The whole composition and the colours in this card is really nice, but you know my favourite part? That little tiny clip on the top right holding that little piece of text paper! My eye was drawn straight to it, I think it's lovely :)
