September Verve Diva Inspiration 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 the until October 5 to link up, so feel free to play as often as you like.

Our September challenge is Autumn Lovelies
September brings to mind crisp apples, bouquets of sharpened pencils, baked pumpkin delights, rainbows of fallen leaves and don't forget Pumpkin Spice Lattes and Salted Caramel Mochas! This month we're challenging you to to show us your autumn inspired creations. Use the inspiration graphic or go off on your own tangent, just share a little autumn loveliness with us!
 
  So let's get to it---The hop started over on Julee's blog HERE and you should have hopped all the way through to SARAH's Blog and then here.  I'm glad you made it!
 
Can I just say--I LOVE FALL!!!  So when I found out the theme for this month's hop, I was eager to pull out some new fall papers and get stampy with some of my favorite "older" VERVE stamp sets and dies.  For the main focal point, I used a combination of three stamp sets.  I started off with the framed background from the INSPIRE HOPE set and handcut it out.  The sentiment is stamped onto the little dotted piece using the BOUNTIFUL HARVEST set.  Finally, I added the stamped leaf from the HARVEST BLESSINGS stamp set.  The fun little orange border is one from the SCALLOPED TRIM TRIO DIE SET.  I think all these products "play" so nicely together (once again, the beauty of VERVE stamps!)!
 
OK, it's time to keep going on the hop, so head on over to see what MAUREEN did for your inspirational enjoyment!  I'm sure she's got something beautiful to share as always!
