Verve Divas Inspiration Hop {August}

Welcome to Verve's August 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 August inspiration challenge for another chance to win!

Our August challenge is Sequined Stunner:


Sequins are the perfect embellishment - sparkly, affordable and with lots of texture. Add some sequins to your project this month to make it a sequined stunner! Feel free to use the graphic as inspiration or not.

I made a super clean and simple card.  I wanted the sequins to really shine and stand out. 



I stamped the little heart from With Love in red ink and then filled in all the sequins, attaching them to the card stock with Glassy Accents.  I stamped the sentiment from the same set in black ink and then added some striped paper along the left side for a little zing.

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!

  4. The heart is beautiful. Great way to make a faux shaker card. I was trying to figure how you had made such a small shaker until I read the narrative. I love the way the heart was covered with the sequins. thanks for the idea.
