Verve Divas Inspiration Hop {July}

Welcome to Verve's July Diva Inspirations Hop. It's the 5th of the month and that means it's time for the Divas to serve up some fresh inspiration with their Verve stamps! Leave some comment love along the hop spots for a chance to win a prize, then grab some stamps and play along with our July inspiration challenge for another chance to win!

Our July challenge is Red, White and You:



Red and white are always classic, pair this gorgeous color combo with a color of YOUR choice! Make a statement or keep it muted, it's all up to you! Feel free to use the graphic as inspiration or not, we just want to see you flash a little red, white and "up to you" color on your creation!

I'm such a literal stamper and so naturally, I used the colors from the photo for my take on Red, White & You today. 



I started with MOJO352 for the layout and picked up the dots from Bountiful Backgrounds and stamped them in Grout Gray ink.  I cut out the Build a Poppy Dies in Smooth White card stock and then stamped the poppies from Poppy Birthday, layering them together.


Need a little inspiration? Check out the blogs linked below to see what the other 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!
