Welcome to Verve's September Diva Inspirations Hop. It's the 5th of the month and that means it's time for the Divas to serve up some fresh inspiration with their Verve stamps! Leave some comment love along the hop spots for a chance to win a prize, then grab some stamps and play along with our September inspiration challenge for another chance to win!



For my card I started with some Pebbles Special Delivery designer papers.  I love the patterns and the colors.   I am using Verve's Carpe Cupcake stamp set.  I stamped the cupcake onto 


white card stock, colored the bottom of the cupcake with copics, and paper pieced the top.  The paper comes from the  same paper pad.  The rick rack mimics frosting to me. 
I added some texture by using my Tombow Aqua glue to add some frosted icing effect to the rick rack pattern in the paper.   I let it dry and surprisingly it dried very similar to crystal effects(all of mine had dried up so I had to be resourceful). I finished my card with Verve's Shine Bright Sequin Mix.  I am playing along with this week's Mojo Monday Sketch. 



This month's challenge is entitled Sweet September:


Sugar-high! Get sugary sweet with pastels, cupcakes or candy. Create a calorie free confection to delight the senses! Feel free to use the graphic as inspiration or not.

  13. Great take on the sketch. I like how you made it go vertically instead of horizontally. Made the card extra interesting. I love the gingham background paper and how you popped the layers. Very cool card.

  24. Hi Betty ! I especially like your ric-rac frosting. A fun play on the chevron which is so popular right now. I also like how you really played up the use of patterns on this card - but it still wasn't overboard. Really sharp!
