Verve Divas Inspiration Hop {November}

Welcome to Verve's November Diva Inspirations Hop. It's the 5th of the month and that means it's hopping time. We love to get our Verve inky around here, whether they're hot off the presses, or a little worn around the edges. So today you'll see Diva creations to inspire you with both old and new Verve! It's sure to be a treat, and speaking of treats, one lucky commenter along the hop will win Verve's October Release Collection! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the details.



And since the holidays are just around the corner, Verve has a little holiday sale going on through November 26!


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

I feel like I am so far behind in getting birthday cards made.  The kids start school and the birthday party invites start pouring in!  Luckily, this cutie was super easy to make.  I grabbed some All About a Boy 6x6 papers from Echo Park and this week's MOJO318 sketch and got to it.



I started by stamping Happy Birthday to YOU in black ink on my green tag and then stamped the little cupcake from With Love in green ink off to the side of the sentiment.  I was going to color it in, but decided it looked pretty good just as an outlined image.  I used the Pennant Trim Die to give the chevron strip a little pop and then added the Arrow Die with the polkadot image from Brighter Days on top of the tag.  I switched out the hearts in the sketch for some stars.

There is so much more to see from the other Verve Divas, so be sure to stop by and see what Sankari has whipped up for you today - she is next on the hop.
