 Welcome to Verve's October Release Retrospective Blog Hop! The Verve Divas are hopping today and serving up some more inspiration using the October release stamps & dies! Besides a look-see at some really nifty cards, there's also a comment prize up for grabs!


For my card I started with Pebbles Walnut Grove designer papers.  I combined the newly released Inspire Hope stamp set with Verve's Love Notes stamp set.   I die cut Verve's Classy Label Cut Above Die in rustic white card stock.  I inked the frame from Love Notes stamp set.  I stamped the sentiment, leafy frame, and floral center from the Inspire Hope set.  Love the many options with the floral frames and sprigs that come in this set.  

Deconstructed Sketch No. 173
I am playing along with this week's Deconstructed Sketch 173.   This sketch called for three circle elements in the bottom right corner peeking from the horizontal panel.  In order to create those, I used the larger of Verve's Cut Above Loopy Blooms dies.  I cut the larger bloom in half.  I added some ink distressing for dimension, some sewing machine stitching for some added detail.  I finished the card with the iridescent sequins from the newly released Verve's Pink Sparkle Sequin Mix.

  12. I would never have thought to put all the colors together like you did, but they turned out marvelously. The big die cut is good for your layout, and the Inspires Hope sentiment is very lovely. Good job.
