Today we're sharing our first projects featuring the Potter's Clay stamp set and coordinating, Pottery Die Set.  If you've come from visiting Betty, you're in the right place!!  I chose to do a little rock 'n roll stamping with these vases.  So I inked them up in red first, then rolled the edge in a brown.  It gives them nice shading and dimension. I watercolored a bit to ground the vases on the card.  Thanks for stopping by today!  Next on today's hop is Laurie!!

Today we're sharing our first projects featuring the Kindness Matters stamp set and coordinating, Great Kindness Die Set.  If you've come from visiting Betty, you're in the right place!!  For my card, I decided to use some watercoloring again.  This time, I used some heat embossing with the watercoloring.  I stamped the flowers and heat embossed them in white, then watercolored.  I die cut the flowers and then arranged them on the card.  I added the leaves and some Shine Bright Sequins for some sparkle, then finally the die cut sentiment.  Thanks for stopping by!  Next on today's hop is Laurie!!

SJC48 Be Still

Pin It

I have a project to share today using the latest Share Joy Challenge!  I LOVE the sketch and the fact that it's Clean & Simple.  I decided to use the Faith In Bloom set from Taylored Expressions.  I stamped and colored the sweet flower from the set and then stamped the sentiment.

In order to give the background some interest while still keeping the card clean & simple, I used the Damask Embossing Folder to create some texture.  The strips of Candy Corn and Granny Smith cardstocks tie in the colors of the flower.

I hope you'll play along with the Share Joy Challenge!!  It gives a great starting point for inspiration!!  Thanks for stopping by today and have a great day!

August Diva Inspirations Challenge and Blog Hop

Pin It

It's time for the Verve Divas to bring you our monthly Diva Inspirations Challenge and Blog Hop! There are TWO $30 gift vouchers to the Verve store up for grabs this month and two ways to win! First, comment on the design team's blog hop posts (linked below) for an entry in the first giveaway. Then to be entered into our challenge prize drawing, go get inky and link up your take on the challenge. You have until September 5 to link up. Feel free to play along with the challenge as many times as you like. Verve stamps aren't required to play, but we do smile a little brighter when we see them!

Summer brights fade into earthy tones for the dog days of summer. With the hustle and bustle of the end of summer coming, a breezy, free-spirited graphic is what we have in store for you this month. Follow the color pattern, or be inspired to journey where the creative winds may take you. We can't wait to see what you create!

If you've come from visiting Betty, you're in the right place!!  For my card, I used the Better Together set from Verve.  I used the background stamp from the set to create a background that mimicked the inspiration photo.  I alternated the red and green color in the stamping and then added strips of cardstock in varying lengths.  The doily reminded me of the piece in the dreamcatcher.  Finally, I added some sequins from the Signature Sequin Mix to add some sparkle.  

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you've been inspired to play along!  Next on the hop is Christyne!!

Challenge deadline: Monday, September 5.
