August Verve Diva Inspirations Hop


Hello!

Welcome to the August 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!


I am starting to get crazy for fall already. I used one of my new favorite Verve sets, Autumn Splendor, for my card. I love that this set has the outline and the solid insides to stamp the leaves. I stamped the outlines in gray and then went back with a fun color combo of orange, olive, and aqua for the leaves.

I also used this week's Mojo Monday sketch:


There is so much going on with Verve, contests and prizes for their anni-Verve-sary! :)

We're celebrating 6 years of VERVE this month with a huge sale! Your favorites are bound to be marked down, since all stamps and dies are 10-50% off during the month of August! Now that's something to celebrate!


Gotta love a ginormous sale! ;) Be sure to treat yourself to something stampy! If you need a little help deciding, keep hopping - Betty Wright is your next stop along the hop!

Take care, and thanks for stopping by!
