Welcome to Verve's August Release Retrospective Blog Hop! The Verve Divas are hopping today and serving up some more inspiration using the August release stamps & dies! Besides a peek at some really cool cards, there are also a couple of prizes up for grabs!

For my card I combined some Fancy Pants As You Wish designer papers with Verve's newly released Coffee stamp set, Verve's Cut Above Coffee Word and Cuppa Joe dies.  I stamped the sentiment in Momento Cocoa.  I die cut the word twice and glued together for some added stability. I die cut and stamped the grande mug.  I used some copics for shading.   I accented the card with some clear gems and some silver sequins from Verve's Signature Sequin Mix.   I thought this simple design was a great way to house a fantastic coffee shop gift card.
