Verve and Ribbon Carousel Blog Hop



Well, is it Wednesday already?  I hope ya'll are taking the holidays nice and slow so far.  I'm trying to.  Even though I keep coming up with cool projects to make for gifts and my home, I'm using that two-letter word that's so hard to warm up to...NO.  What I have is enough and what I've already committed to do will keep me plenty busy without adding more.  I hope ya'll all can reach that happy medium!
 
With the slower pace I'm taking this season, I was happy to agree to participate in a little fun with Verve and The Ribbon Carousel--the sweet Verve Divas have partnered up with the talented Ribbon Carousel Crew to bring you some beautiful eye candy in the form of a joint blog hop! This hop promises to be overflowing with crafty goodness and lots of "loving" inspiration!


Most of the designers are using Verve's Stronger Love (this is what I used) and Wings of Love stamp sets in addition to the Arrow die. Corinna, owner of the Ribbon Carousel, sent us all some beautiful ribbons in whites, pinks and reds to use in conjunction with our 'lovey' stamps. We'd love for you to participate and hop along with us...do you know why? It's almost Christmas time and who wouldn't love some crafty gifts just for themselves!
Now, lets talk prizes!


Hop along with us today and leave some blog love for the Verve Divas and the Ribbon Carousel Crewmates to be eligible to win one of the 2 prizes up for grabs!  We'll select 2 random commenters from 2 randomly selected designer's blogs, so be sure to spread the love around!
The Verve Stamps prize is the ENTIRE November Release, and the RC prize is a NEW Ribbon Carousel with your choice of knob color! 
Ready to Hop?!

  2. I am loving all these "lovely" cards today. And I especially like your design tip of offsetting die cuts....I am going to have to try that out. If the results make my cards look more like yours, I'll be ecstatic! Great work.

  23. Ah, how gorgeous! I am always so jealous of those who can make multiple layers look so perfect, mine always looks a mess! With that in mind, I think I might try out your Susie Q-Tip and see if that works for me!
