Verve Divas - May Inspiration Hop - Happy Mother's Day Cardset

Hi Everyone, 

It's the 5th of the month and time for the Verve Divas to bring you our monthly Diva Inspirations Challenge and Blog Hop! There are two ways to win Verve prizes: comment on the design team's blog hop posts (linked below) to see their take on the inspiration, then go get inky and link up your take on the challenge to be eligible in our prize drawings!

Our May challenge is Let it Bloom

Florals are always fashionable. Let your creativity bloom and use some fabulous florals on your card. Use the inspiration graphic as a starting point, or head off in your own direction – just show us some blooms!

April Showers do bring May flowers and our yard is just starting to bloom with bright beautiful peonies! So in honor of our challenge and Mother's Day coming up, I wanted to create some bright florals using the Joyful Blooms stamp set with the Rounded Scallop Frame Die. I created a little cardset using these stamp sets ready to send out to the mother's in our lives


Here is a close up of one of the cards: I stacked the flowers together and then added a little bling to the centers and some liquid pearls to the white space to look like some embossing and then added a butterfly to the side with some bling for fun :)


Here is another view of the card set - Love how they turned out:

Card Ingredients:
Stamps:: Joyful Blooms from Verve Stamps
A Cut Above Dies from VerveRounded Scallop Frame Die,
Inks: Lady Bug Red and Tuxedo Black inks from Memento
Papers: DP from Stash, Earl Grey (TE) Sugar Cube (TE)
Accessories: Best Glue Ever, Foam dimensional tape, bling, corner chomper, EK success scallop punch, butterfly punch from MS and liquid pearls
