July Verve Diva Inspirations Hop


Hello!

Welcome to the July 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!

Strong Anchor is one of those sets that has been keeping a permanent spot on my desk. I love the nautical theme, and the sentiments in this set have been really meaningful to me. Since we're in full blown summer and just celebrated the 4th, my card is a little red, white and blue nautical goodness.


I started by adding strips of red and white cardstock to my card base. I die cut an oval and stamped my sentiment. The anchors are from the Nautical Die Set, which I totally recommend as a companion to Strong Anchor! I punched a hole in the top of each anchor and threaded some twine through them. Its fun to add this ropey look to your nautical cards.

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

Take care, and thanks for stopping by!

  11. Wow Anya...this one just speaks volumes to me. I adore anything with an anchor as my son's best friend who was 21, and a Junior at the U.S. Naval Academy lost his life last year in a tragic car accident. Your sentiment is perfect for this....thanks for sharing.
