May Diva Inspirations Hop - Font Focus - WIN!


It's a very busy blogging day today, please scroll down to see my two previous posts also!


Welcome to Verve's May Diva Inspirations Hop. It's the 5th of the month and that means it's hopping time! This month we've got a fabulous challenge that's sure to take you on a sentimental journey! So in addition to a comment prize hidden along the hop, you can play along with the challenge and link up your creation for a chance to win another prize!

We're also welcoming Chaitali to the Diva team this month - yay! Welcome!

Our April challenge is Font Focus:


Fancy fonts are all the rage! Let your inner wordsmith shine and make a gorgeous sentiment (or two or three!) the focus of your card. Whether you draw inspiration from the graphic or take some poetic license of your own, just flash us some fonts!



No doubt about it, Verve sentiments are amazing! I particularly love the Plain Jane range, talk about bang for your buck! These stamps are small in price but pack a big punch. I've used the Adjusted Sails Plain Jane on my feminine nautical card. 

The sentiment is stamped on a Banner Bundle die cut, and lightly sponged with Scattered Straw Distress ink. To carry on the banner theme, I used the Pennant Trim Die. The beautiful seam binding is from the signature collection.

Here's a peek inside my card...


I've used stamps from the Strong Anchor stamp set, and matching Nautical Die Set

Need a little inspiration? Check out the blogs linked below to see what the other Divas did with the challenge! It's sure to be a treat, and speaking of treats, we've got a prize for one lucky commenter along the hop! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize info and deadlines, and a little bit about our brand new Diva!
