Verve October 2013 Spotlight Hop ~ Day 3

Welcome to Day 3 of Verve's October 2013 Spotlight Hops!   If you have come here from Jen'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.  Everything previewed this week will be available in the Verve online store on Friday night,  October 25th!  

Today's featured set is Unto Us and the Reindeer Fun Die Set.  I'm swooning over the fabulous, scripture sentiments in this set as well as the wonderful, bold, chevron border stamp that coordinates with the Classy Label die. 



Making Christmas cards is always such fun!  Managed to snag a few new papers at my LSS by Carta Bella and Imaginisce.  The snowflakes and Christmas coloured polka dots made me swoon!  Think I'll go back for a few more sheets of each before they are all gone.  Diva Christyne's VLV sketch was my starting point and I created the focal sentiment panel from the Unto Us set.  Used the Banner Bundle Dies to cut the banners, and then over stamped the main sentiment with one of the stars from Star of Wonder.  The secondary sentiment along the bottom is also from that set.  Gotta love how you can mix and match your Verve sets :)

We'll be picking a random commenter on one of the hop spots below to win today's featured products!  So be sure to leave a little comment on all the blogs below to increase your chances!

What a beautiful Christmas card. I love how you are getting your VLV sketches done for the month too. I do like the over stamped star on the sentiment here. I agree that it's wonderful being able to mix and match Verve stamps and dies...that's part of what I love so much about Verve. I love how Julee has created new stamps in this release also that will coordinate with existing sets and dies.
