Welcome to our Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops!  As many of you know, Verve is celebrating its 5th anniversary this month and the party is just getting started! Come join us over the next 9 days as we showcase the 23 new stamps and dies releasing from Verve! We'll be counting down the minutes and revealing all the new sets in our forum from 9-11pm Eastern on Friday, August 24, so make plans now to join us for our release party!

In the meantime, we've got a fun filled hop for you today! So let your fingers do the clicking and peek into the creative minds of Verve's talented Divas and Guest Divas as they give you a little tour of what's to come! Inspiration abounds, and so do the PRIZES!

That's right! We've picked a mystery blog from today's hop and hidden a prize! So be sure to give a little shout out in the comment section as you hop around to each blog on the list. We’ll draw a random winner from all of the comments on the mystery blog to win today's featured sets and dies. Check out the Verve Blog for all the prize details and deadlines.


Today's card spotlights Treasured Words stamp set.  I am also using Borderline stamp set and Verve's Cut Above Mini Vintage Oval, Pennant Trim, Rounded Rectangle  and Rounded Scalloped Frame dies.

 I started with some MME Lost & Found Sunshine dp.  I decided to keep this card fairly simple since it is a baby card.   I stitched the inside panel only.  I stamped the adorable baby buggy that comes in the set and paper pieced.  I did accent the dots with copic marker.  I added the layer sentiment.  I told you all I LOVE these new mini frame dies.   I just had to use this one.    I added three little pennants trim pieces to the bottom of the scalloped frame each topped with a tiny button brad.  I finished with a coordinating seam binding bow and button.
