Verve May 2013 Spotlight Hop ~ Day 3

VR Day 3 - Anchor photo VRDay3Anchor.jpg

Welcome to Day 3 of Verve's Sneak Peek Spotlight Hop.   If you have come here from Christyne's blog you are right on track. If you just happened up on the Hop, you can follow the list below to get caught up.

Today's spotlights are Strong Anchor and matching Nautical Die set, as well as a Plain Jane called Adjusted Sails.  I chose to showcase Strong Anchor since June is a crazy busy month with year end activities at schools etc., and it was a perfect opportunity to get my Father's Day card for hubby done early!

I used the square version of last week's Mojo Monday sketch as I just loved the banners.  I created my own pattern on the banners using the anchor image on one panel and the wheel on the other.  The Curvy Bookplate die was a perfect frame for this fabulous sentiment.    Some embossing and a few buttons added some extra "oomph" and as hard as I tired not to , a bow somehow managed to make it's way on to the card.  Good thing hubby is man enough to deal with it LOL!

For my second card, I just had to use this fabulous verse Julee brought to life :)   The Banner Bundle Die Set cut out the flags/banners down the side, and I stamped the wheel image on each one of them for a little something.  The frame around the sentiment panel was created with the rope image in the set.   I omitted the anchor image on the sentiment so I could add a larger one off to the side, which I die cut with the matching Nautical die set.  Couldn't resist adding a twine sailor's knot up the side and a bit of burlap for the anchor to rest in.

Next in line is Andrea, and she always has some drool worthy creation to ogle, so head on over to see what she has created for you today.

Two wonderful cards. I love the white and blue combo and the way you stamped the anchor and wheel on the banners. I love the rope border on the second card and the way you hi-lighted the word anchor. Fun sailor's knot too.
