Hi peeps! Welcome to our July Diva Inspirations Hop! It's the 5th of the month and that means it's time for the Verve Inspirations Team to breathe new life into some much-loved stamps and dies. And there's a PRIZE up for grabs, so be sure to leave a little shout out in the comment section of each blog as you hop about to be entered in a drawing for a $30 gift voucher to Verve Stamps! Check out all the details and prize info over at the Verve Blog.
You should be visiting from Sankari's blog, if you need to start at the beginning, head on over to see Julee.
Wishing You and Love Monkey. We have a giggle over the way Shanan makes monkey noises when he's reading to Jackson, so the monkey was perfect for this card! I'm also linking up to Stacey's birthday celebration!
I stamped the monkey on x-press it cardstock and coloured with copics. I stamped the hearts in red ink then filled them in with Xmas Red Stickles. The background is embossed with my fave folder and I went for a tilted panel layout. The gorgeous border is from the Scalloped Trim Trio Cut Above Dies.
Here's the inside of my card...
I've kept the Scalloped Trim Trio dies together, so I get three borders cut in one pass - I had to use the cute star border on the inside of the card as well as a sentiment from Love Monkey.
It's time to hop on over to see the lovely Sony now!
