Diva Inspirations Hop - Statement Thank You!


Welcome to our Diva Inspirations Hop! It's the 5th of the month and that means it's time for the Verve Inspirations Team to breathe new life into some much-loved stamps and dies. And there's a PRIZE up for grabs! So be sure to leave a little shout out in the comment section of each blog as you hop about to be entered in a drawing for a $30 gift certificate to Verve Stamps! Check out all the details and prize info over at the Verve Blog.

This month we're also saying a fond farewell to Jen del Muro, as this is her last hop as a Verve Diva. She's been a part of the Verve team almost from the very beginning and although we're sad to see her go, we're so excited to see the things she has up her sleeve for the stamping world!

Fittingly, I've used a stamp set based on a concept from Jen, Making a Statement.



Here's my card....
I needed a thank you card for a special friend and had so much fun playing with the whimsical stamps in this set! I've used the Rounded Scallop Frame for my focal layer, adding a strip of patterned paper with the sentiment. The Loopy Blooms flowers were cut from cardstock and paper and layered with buttons.

I've cut out a half circle from my base layer to incorporate a large bow. Some jumbo brads anchor a flag to finish everything off.

Here's the inside of my card...

I added a couple more flags and stamped half of one sentiment by selectively inking. I added that cute little bird on top and paper pieced his wing.

It's time for you to go visit with the talented Sony - happy hopping!
