Verve Divas Inspiration Hop - January 2013

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to our January Diva Inspirations Hop!  Today the Divas are dusting off some Verve favorites and putting on our monthly hop to inspire you with a fresh new spin on the stamps in our stash! So grab a drink and hop along as we share a little Verve with you! There's a great little prize involved, too! A random commenter on one of the hops will win a $30 gift certificate to VERVE, so be sure to leave a little love in the comment section as you hop about! You can find out all the prize details over on the Verve Blog today. 

 For my project today I used the darling stamp set: Sweet Valentine to create a little valentine's day card using some vellum and some EP Your's Truly papers. I love this happy font - the swirls and the hearts are just so sweet! I adhered the two background papers (the red/white and the gray papers) and then cut out a circle in the middle with my spellbinders. I then turned the circle around so that the gray side was down and then popped it up over the cut circle area and added the sentiment "happy valentine's day" on top of that. The stamps were cut and popped up again over the sentiment:
 I also stamped the larger joined hearts on vellum paper and then outlined the heart shapes with a white gel pen and then attached them around the sentiment and one at the bottom. I added a line of scallops at the top and then penned a line of faux stitching with the gel pen. Here is another angle of the card:
 
 

 All of Julee's creations are so lovely - and stay tuned there is some New Verve on the way to ring in the New Year!!! I really enjoy going back and stamping my older Verve sets and I can't wait to see what all sets and creations these lovely ladies have used in their projects today! Please hop with me and check them out!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Ciao for now,
Sankari :)
