December Diva Inspirations Hop Verve Stamps

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to Verve's December 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. So pull up a chair and take a tour of some fun creations using Verve favorites .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.

For my card today, I decided to get sweet Rudy out and ink him up for some holiday fun using the Santa's Helper stamp set from Verve stamps, which is also on S A L E right now (oh yea!). I love this little guy - he is so cute with that little top hat! omgoodness!! I decided to keep the card layout a little simple and tried to do a little rustic CAS with this little guy :)

 After coloring him, I popped him up on some dimensionals and onto the Sweet Scallop die from Verve stamps. I couldn't just stop at one card - he is tooooo cute - so I kept going and made some more cards mixing up some ribbons - they will totally come in handy in the next week or so while putting together teacher's gifts at school. Here are the cards that I made using the same stamp:
Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Santa's Helper stamp set from Verve Stamps
Inks: Memento Bamboo Leaves and Tuxedo Black and copics
Papers: Kraft cardstock and scrap DP
Accessories: Sweet Scallop die from Verve stamps, white gel pen, paper crimper, twine, gingham ribbon, grosgrain ribbon, snowflake punch from MS, bling and corner chomper

I loved coloring in Rudy and creating these cards :) and I can't wait to see what the rest of the team has created - please hop with me and check them out and leave some love with a comment and you could win some fun Verve stamps!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Big hugs,
Sankari :)

Darling...When I first pulled up your page I didn't see that you had made 6 of these!! I was thinking that all that faux stitching around the edges must have taken forever...and then to see that you had made 6...you go girl!!
