Welcome to the January Diva Inspirations Blog Hop! Our Diva Inspirations team is here at a new date, the 5th of the month, to inspire you with a little Verve ! You can start the Hop at the Verve blog.  Continue through and comment on each fabulous blog and leave a little comment love and you just might win some Vervey goodness of your very own!  If you got here from the  Verve blog you are in the right place.



For my card, I am using Verve's Love Story, Words Cannot Express, Sunny Days, and Celebration of Thanks stamp sets.    I am using Verve's Cut Above Lovely Marque die, Tiny Sweet Scallop die, Leafy Sprigs die, and From the Heart Dies. 

  I stamped the Marque frame image from Love Story and die cut it with the Lovely Marque die. I stamped the sentiment from Words Cannot Express inside.     I die cut one of the Tiny Sweet Scallop die  and stamp it with one of the sentiments in Celebration of Thanks.  I also used the flourished image in the set to accent the edges of the tag.   For the sprig, I used the sprig image from Sunny Days .  I rocked and rolled the image with some aqua mist and Memento pear ink.  I die cut using the Leafy Sprigs die.  I love how perfectly these dies cut out.  Speaking of which, check out this image of From the Heart Dies.   Each die comes with these circle  cut outs on the edges so the dies can be lined up perfectly.  However, here I chose to use those tiny circle dots for an accent on my leaves and top right of the card instead of just throwing them away. Love that especially with the glitter cardstock that I used here.  It is like little faux gems.  

I finished my card with some stitching, a seam binding bow,  and a solid button!  

As always thanks so much for stopping by!  Next on the hop is super talented Dawn's blog!
