December Diva Inspirations Hop!


Welcome to Verve's December Diva Inspirations Hop. It's the 5th of the month and that means it's time for the Divas to serve up some fresh inspiration with their Verve stamps! Leave some comment love along the hop spots for a chance to win a prize, then grab some stamps and play along with our December inspiration challenge for another chance to win!

This month's challenge is entitled O Christmas Tree:


Ribbons and sparkle and merry galore! Create a card inspired by the decorations of the season!


I loved all the ribbon in the inspiration photo and knew I wanted an oversized bow for my card today. Rather than using a Christmas tree stamp, I used the little pine boughs from Ornamental Christmas. The label and sentiment are from the wonderful Unto Us stamp set and the label was cut with the Classy Label Die. I created a shaker background filled with gorgeous Shine Bright sequins.

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!
