January Diva Inspiration Hop!



Welcome to Verve's January Diva Inspirations Hop. It's the 5th of the month and that means it's hopping time! This year we're spicing up our monthly hops with the addition of a challenge! So in addition to a comment prize hidden along the hop, you can play along with the challenge and link up your creation for a chance to win another prize! Woohoo!


Our January challenge is:

 
The year is shiny and new, so let's add shimmer and shine to our cards.
Think glitter, sequins, rhinestones, pearls, heat embossing - anything with some gloss.


Deconstructed Sketch 132During Christmas break from school, I spent some time cleaning my  craft room.  For my card I am using some "vintage" Basic Grey Sugar Rush designer papers that I found while cleaning.  What I had discarded before, I liked now and thought to give it a try.   I am using Verve's Love Flower and No Matter What stamp sets along with Verve's Cut Above Heart die setI embossed the focal image in Zing embossing powder.  I added red glittered card stock heart dies.  I finished with a seam binding bow in cherry using Verve's Truly Madly Deeply Ribbon Collection.    I  am using Deconstructed Sketch #132   turned to make a vertical card. 

Need a little inspiration? Check out the blogs linked below to see what our Divas did with the challenge! It's sure to be a treat, and speaking of treats, we've got a prize for one lucky commenter along the hop! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize info and deadlines.
