Unto Us Verve Spotlight Hop

Hi friends!  It's Day 3 of our spotlight hops and today the Divas are shining their sneaky little spotlights on a new set called Unto Us.  All the sets and dies we've peeked this week will be available in the Verve store sometime tonight.  (Not quite sure an exact time, since my little guys being sick this week has left me a bit behind schedule on the website side of things).  But the Divas will be back hopping tomorrow morning, so it will definitely be ready by then!!!  {grin}

Unto Us has some beautiful Christ-centered Christmas sentiments as well as a chevron version of the Classy Label Die and some winter imagery that coordinates with the new Reindeer Fun Die Set.  I'm the start of the hop, so grab yourself a treat and settle in for a hopping good time!  PS.  There are prizes to be won, so be sure to leave comments as you hop about to the blogs linked at the bottom of this post!



I think Christmas cards are one of my favorite things to make.  I rarely make the same one twice, although this one was so fun and easy, I might just have to make it again and again!  I love the look of book paper and when I saw this kraft book paper in a collection of 8.5 x 11 papers at Michael's I was sold.  I stamped the chevron label from Unto Us in black, the cut with the coordinating Classy Label Die.  The sentiment is also from Unto Us  and stamped inside the label.  I added a strip of the same paper behind as a little banner, then used the Banner Bundle Die Set to cut three banners of varying sizes and lengths from scraps.  The base layer is embossed with a snowflake folder from Darice and I wrapped some seam binding and twine around it, tied a bow and added a couple rusty jingle bells to finish it off.

Okay, time to hop along to the next stop....  Jen Shults!

    I love the sentiments in this new set and your card showcasing one of them. The bells on the bow are the perfect touch here. I think it's wonderful that you are adding new stamps that co-ordinate with previous sets and dies.
