January Verve Diva Inspirations Hop


Hello!

Welcome to Verve's January Diva Inspirations Hop. It's the 5th of the month and that means it's hopping time! This year we're spicing up our monthly hops with the addition of a challenge! So in addition to a comment prize hidden along the hop, you can play along with the challenge and link up your creation for a chance to win another prize! Woohoo!

Our January challenge is:


The year is shiny and new, so let's add shimmer and shine to our cards.
Think glitter, sequins, rhinestones, pearls, heat embossing - anything with some gloss.

You are on the right track if you've arrived here from Amy's blog. The hop is kicking off on Sarah's blog, so be sure to head there so you don't miss any of the eye candy!


What better way to add shimmer and shine to your card than the twinkle of lots of stars! I flipped through all my Verve sets, and pulled any that had star images in them. Here I used: Birthday Bash, Holiday Greetings, and Learning to Sail. I stamped my star pattern onto my card first and then some extras onto scrap, which I cut out and popped up in my design. Some of my stars were glittered, others were colored with Perfect Pearls, and the rest I left plain. Then I added a sprinkling of rhinestones for good measure :)

The sentiment is from the Birthday Bash set and was stamped on an Embossed Oval die cut.


Need a little inspiration? Check out the blogs linked below to see what our Divas did with the challenge! It's sure to be a treat, and speaking of treats, we've got a prize for one lucky commenter along the hop! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize info and deadlines.  Betty Wright is your next stop along the hop!
