June Verve Diva Inspirations Hop


Hello!

Welcome to the June Verve Diva Inspirations Hop!

This is a regular feature on the 5th of the month and is a chance to breathe some new life into some much-loved Verve stamps and dies. Leaving a comment enters you into a drawing to win a $30 gift certificate to Verve Stamps! You are on the right track if you've arrived here from Amy's blog. The hop is kicking off on the Verve blog, so be sure to head there to get all the details!

Verve has such a great selection of sentiment and flowers sets, I truly can't help but want to put the two together each time. I needed a birthday card for a friend and, inspired by the bold colors of her gift wrapping, made this card.


This card pairs Sunny Days with Brighter Days. What a pair! We could all use some brighter, sunnier days :)

I stamped my flowers and colored them with Copics. The flowers centers were punched from navy cardstock and adhered with dimensional foam adhesive. Then I liberally applied some Stickles for crazy sparkle. I used the very handy Leafy Sprigs Die Set to die cut the leaves which may just be my favorite part). Adore those Brighter Days sentiments, too.

That will do it for me today.. sweetie Betty Wright is your next stop along the hop!

Take care, and thanks for stopping by!

    1. Hi Elizabeth,

      These flowers were cut by hand. I don't believe there is a coordinating die for these flowers yet. They were easy peasy to trim!
