June Diva Inspirations Hop


Well, it's time for the Verve Divas to bring you our monthly Diva Inspirations Challenge and Blog Hop!  You should have made it here from STACEY'S BLOG, but if you've just joined us, there's a link list at the bottom of this post so you don't miss a thing!  There are TWO $30 gift vouchers to the Verve store up for grabs this month and two ways to win! First, comment on the design team's blog hop posts (linked below) for an entry in the first giveaway. Then to be entered into our challenge prize drawing, go get inky and link up your take on the challenge. You have until July 5 to link up. Feel free to play along with the challenge as many times as you like. Verve stamps aren't required to play, but we do smile a little brighter when we see them!

Summertime is on the way and a soft beachy vibe is our inspiration this month. Soft neutrals and bold pops of color are sure to bring a bit of summer flair to your projects. Take your inspiration from the graphic or follow the color pattern, just have fun stamping. We can't wait to see what you create!


I love this color combo, and because Father's Day is coming up, I thought it would be a good time to make a sweet card for my sweet hubby.  He IS a good one!!!  I started by cutting the TAGGED RECTANGLE DIE from white as a nice focal point for my sentiment from the SPARKLY DREAMS stamp set.  The shape of the tag kind of resembles the jars in the picture!  Because I wanted to keep it pretty simple, I added the strip across the lower half of the card and tied some fun SEAM BINDING RIBBON across it in a beautiful bow.  I added several stars from the STARRY DIE and blinged them up a bit with some adhesive rhinestones. 

Next up on your hop lineup is TERESA!!!!! Go take a look at what she's sharing today, you know it will be beautiful!!!!
