March Diva Inspirations Hop


Hello! Thanks for stopping by! Today I'm hopping along with the rest of the Verve Inspirations Divas and we're bringing you a bunch of inspirational projects using previously released Verve stamps and dies!

If you arrived here from the lovely Sankari, you're in the right place! The hop started with Julee at the Verve Blog, so head on back if you need to start from the start - there's an awesome prize involved just for leaving comments!

I LOVE the stamp set I've used today - Brighter Days. I used one of my favourite Verve dies, the Curvy Bookplate. I cut out the ribbon from the center of the sentiment, coloured it with Copics and popped it up on a foam dot.


I stamped the arrow in Riding Hood Red ink and cut it with the Arrow die. The edges of my panel are sponged with Antique Linen Distress ink.

I stamped the largest flower in the set four times, colouring with copics and fussy cutting before putting it back together with foam dots.

I also used the Leafy Sprigs die along with a co-ordinating stamp from the Sunny Days stamp set.

Here's the inside of my card...


I repeated the sentiment treatment from the front of my card and this time I cut the smaller two flowers with the co-ordinating Scalloped Flowers dies.


I'm going to send you on to visit the talented Sony now! Have fun hopping, and don't forget to comment to be in to win a $30 gift certificate to Verve!
