Welcome to the Verve Believe Blog Hop. If you’ve just happened across my blog, you’ll want to start back at the beginning Julee's blog and hop your way along. Today we’re hopping for the Cure, sharing projects from a new set Verve just released called Believe. This set was designed in honor of breast cancer awareness and Verve is donating $10 from the sale of every Believe set to the Susan G Komen For the Cure foundation. We believe that we can make a difference. We believe that each day should be celebrated, each moment cherished and that every little thing we can do in the fight to find a cure matters.


For my card, I am using the word elements that come in this wonderful set to create an inspirational background card. I stamped randomly the key words and expressions along with a few touches of the ribbon of hope image. I sponged the ivory cardstock with some pink pirouette ink to soften the look. I added the sentiment quote and lightly stenciled the shaped nestabilities. I stamped two of the smaller flowers, colored with copics, cut them out, added some cotton candy stickles, and layered. I finished with a pink satin bow and heart charm with touches of silver pearls.

The background pink pirouette section is embossed with a sizzix plate and lightly sponged. I used the labels 8 to created layer border edges to my focal panel section sides.


Thanks for hopping by! Next up on the hop is Jessie Rone. Oh, and we’ve got a special gift hidden along our hop for one lucky commenter, so if you see something you really love, give a little shout out and you just might win a $30 gift certificate to Verve!

Stamps Verve Believe; Paper PTI true black, pink pirouette, Flourishes ivory; Ink Momento tuxedo black, pink pirouette; Accessories silver pearls, nestabilities, pink satin ribbon, heart charm, silver cording, sponges, foam circles, bow easy, silver pearls, sizzix textured plates

If you hopped here from the Sweet 'n Sassy blog, my card for that posting can be see here! Thanks so much for hopping by!
