Verve Divas Inspiration Hop {April}

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!

If you are following the hop, then you have arrived here from seeing the ever so fabulous, Jessica.

I'm playing with one of my new favorite sets, With Love, today - I just love the sentiments in this set!  I grabbed some Collectable "Notable" 6x6 papers from My Mind's Eye and used up some scraps with this gorgeous MOJO287 sketch.  Psst!  There is still time to play in this week's MOJO sketch challenge and you can enter for a chance to win more Verve!  Yum! 



I stamped the heart from the set in Blu Raspberry Ink and then stamped over it with Hot Fudge Ink.   Back to basics with this one, right?  I love this clean look. 


There is much more to see from the other Verve Divas, so be sure to stop by and see beautiful, sunny Sankari - she is next on the hop.

And just in case you missed a Diva, here is the hop list for you so you can catch up:

1. Julee 7. Sankari
2. Amy 8. Sarah
3. Anya 9. Sony
4. Jen d. 10. Susan
