Be Blessed Day 3 Blog Hop

Hi friends!  I'm back again kicking off Verve's Day 3 Spotlight Hop!  Come join in the fun and check out the Divas' first looks at Be BlessedLuke 1:45 Plain Jane and Sprightly Sprigs Die Set.  And there's a prize to be won, so be sure to leave a little shout out as you hop around to the blogs on the list below! {grin}


For my card today, I used all of today's featured products, plus the Petal Points Die Set we peeked earlier this week.  That's right, the Petal Points dies work with the flowers in both the Be Blessed and Button Best sets!  That's my kind of two-fer! {grin}  I started by inking the solid flowers from Be Blessed in perfect plum, then I rock-n-rolled the edges of the stamp with wisteria wonder and stamped onto white cardstock.  Next I cut the three medium and one large flower with the Petal Points Die Set.

I wanted a bit more layering to my flower, so decided to stamp the smaller solid flower three times and hand cut to pop up over the flower centers.  I really like the effect this gives, and it would be a great way to add a traditional yellow flower center to a stamped image.  Next I sent the Sprightly Sprigs Die Set through my machine two times with some designer paper so I'd have a bunch of greenery to work with once I started gluing things down.

I pulled out the Luke 1:45 sentiment and decided I wanted it to look like the worn cover of a prayer journal, so layered some green papers behind, embossed the scripture verse in perfect plum on vellum and then distressed a little with a paper distresser and a paper crimper.  For the back panel, I layered two designer papers together and then started putting all the pieces together.  I wanted there to be a lot of greenery and a bit of distressing around the edges to convey that maybe it's been a while between the promise and the fulfillment.

Alrighty, next up on the hop is Charmaine!  Thanks so much for stopping by, I'd love to hear what you think of today's features.
