November Diva Inspirations Hop!



It's time for the Verve Divas to bring you our monthly Diva Inspirations Challenge and Blog Hop! There are two ways to win Verve prizes: comment on the design team's blog hop posts (linked below) to see their take on the inspiration, then go get inky and link up your take on the challenge to be eligible in our prize drawings! You have until December 5 to link up, so feel free to play as often as you like.

Our November challenge is Rustic Winter 
The days are turning cold and the splendor of fall is changing to the magesticly rustic beauty of a winter woodland. This month we're challenging you to bring a little bit of that rustic winter to your creations. Follow the graphic or head off on your own trail, just show us your rustic winter creations!

Click here to link up your challenge entries
Challenge deadline: Thursday, December 5.
Prize: $30 gift voucher to the Verve online store!

Well, of course I just had to use the phenomenal Unto Us and Pinecone Christmas stamp sets for my card today! When I saw the graphic I thought I'd make something layered and inked and distressed - but when I sat down to create, out came this simpler take. No paper, just stamping. Back to basics!


I've also used the Sweet Scallop Die and the coordinating Reindeer Fun 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!
