Anni~Verve~sary Blog Hop with Cake and Candles

Welcome back to Day 5 of the Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops!  It's an exciting day as there's new Verve in the store this morning! 4 beautiful new sets and 2 coordinating die sets just released and they're all available to order right now. To celebrate this special 10th Anni-VERVE-sary release, we're putting on another blog hop, with a pretty cool prize!




I'm super excited to share the card I made today using Verve's new set called Cake and Candles!!  I knew as soon as I saw the "Happy Cake and Candles" sentiment, that I was going to try something I have wanted to for quite some time.  I just needed the right image.

I bought a Chibi Lights kit quite awhile back and never got around to using it....until today that is!!  It was super easy too.  I used the "Light up Interactive Card" tutorial by Jennifer McGuire and it came together perfectly.  Seriously...no mishaps.  And for me...that is seriously rare!!


In this close up, you can see the candle lighting up with a push on the sentiment.  Isn't that just super fun?  And the background was just as easy.  I just sprayed some Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron Distress spray Stain onto my craft mat, and added some spritzes of water to it.  I then laid some cardstock over the ink and voila...a beautiful splotchy background!!  This card was so easy and super fun!!!

That about sums up my project for today's hop.
So, want to win some shiny new Verve? Today's prize is a BIG one. We'll be picking a random commenter on one of the hop spots below to win our ENTIRE new release! So be sure to leave a little comment on all the blogs below to increase your chances!

Making backgrounds is getting so
easy and they always look like
you've spent hours on them.
Beautiful card. I've had
those lights for several months
and I haven't done anything
with them either. You gave
me a push to get them out.
thanks for sharing.
