Verve October Spotlight Hop - Day 3

Hi Verve fans!  We're back with Day 3 of our 4 day blog hop series celebrating our release that's schedule for sometime tonight.  (My twins have been sick all week, and I'm running behind, so I'm not sure on an exact time that the website will be ready, but definitely sometime before Saturday morning!)  

Today the Divas are shining their sneaky little spotlights on a new set called Unto Us.  Along with some gorgeous Christmas sentiments, this set sports some wintry images, with coordinating dies in the Reindeer Fun Die Set, as well as a chevron label to work with the beloved Classy Label Die.  So settle in for some beautiful Christmas creations along today's hop! 


We'll be drawing a random comment winner from all of the comments along today's hop, so be sure to leave a little shout out at each stop as you hop around!

Today's Blog Hop Prize:  Unto Us + Reindeer Fun Die Set
Comment Deadline for Prize Drawing:  Sunday, 10/27 at 5pm Mountain

For my card today, I wanted to keep the layout simple, so this Christmas sentiment could be the focus.   I've used the "They shall call His name Jesus" sentiment and the chevron label stamp from Unto Us and paired it with the cross images from Each Day (part of our September release).

The crosses are stamped in Cherry Cobbler and hand cut.  The Chevron Label was stamped on white card stock and cut with the Classy Label Die.  I then stamped it again on designer paper and paper pieced the inner portion of the label, then popped the cross image up over the top.  A cherry cobbler seam binding bow and some teeny nail art rhinestones are the only embellishment.

Supply List:
Stamps: Unto Us, Each Day (Verve Stamps)
Paper: Santa's List (Teresa Collins), early espresso (SU!), white
Ink: early espresso, cherry cobbler (SU!)
Accessories: Classy Label Die (A Cut Above by VERVE), cherry cobbler seam binding (SU!), nail art rhinestones




Unto Us is an elegant Christmas set with sentiments focused on the true meaning of Christmas, as well as winter imagery and a classy chevron label that beautifully frame each of the sentiments in this set.  The reindeer silhouette and snowflake have coordinating dies in the new Reindeer Fun Die Set, and the label coordinates with our very popular Classy Label Die.

 Thanks so much for stopping by today!  We'll be back again tomorrow with our final tour of the new release!  Until then, be sure to hop around if you haven't already!
