July 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 August 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!
We're headed into the lazy days of summer,
 and this outdoor scene is sure to inspire some cozy creations.
Take your inspiration from the graphic or follow the color pattern, just have fun stamping. We can't wait to see what you create!
This inspiration graphic is so pretty, I just wish I could hang out in that space.  I especially love the colors and the variety of pattern.  I so wish I knew how to layer a living space like that.  For now, I guess I will just settle for layering that style into my card!  I'm choosing to believe that there is coffee in those pots, so I created a coffee themed card this month using the BETTER WITH YOU stamp set.  In following the latest Viva la Verve Sketch HERE, 
 
 
I used the BANNER BUNDLE die set for the main sentiment and made my focal point from the COFFEE WORD DIE cut 3 times from different colors.  The orange one is stamped with one of the word stamps also from BETTER WITH YOU to give it a little more depth, along with the "coffee rings" along the bottom of the orange piece so it kind of resembles the rug in the picture.  The finishing touch is the old stand-by, the PENNANT TRIM die going across the bottom of the sentiment panel.  I just bent it a little to make it curve.  See?  Lots of pattern and color--it's so ME!!
