September Verve Diva Inspirations Hop


Welcome to the September 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!

My card today is a little fall number, I'm so in love with this set!

I started this card by die cutting a circle from a piece of scrap paper. I took the negative mask, centered it over my cardstock and inked it up with a combination of Distress Inks. I used Milled Lavender, Bundled Sage, and Spiced Marmalade to get that fall sunset look. With the circle mask still in place, I stamped the pumpkin cluster and the moon from the Bountiful Harvest stamp set. I stamped these images again onto patterned paper, cut them out, and pieced them over my little vignette. The cute sentiment is from the same set... this is another fast favorite of mine, full of autumnal themes that work well into Thanksgiving. That little turkey is adorable!

There are lots of lovely Verve ladies joining us today - some of the release team is with us, so be sure to keep on hopping! Betty Wright is your next stop along the hop!

Take care, and thanks for stopping by!
