September Diva Inspirations Hop


Welcome to Verve's September Diva Inspirations Hop! It's the 5th of the month and that means it's time for the Verve Divas to breathe new life into some much-loved stamps and dies. And there's a PRIZE up for grabs, so be sure to leave a little shout out in the comment section of each blog as you hop about to be entered in a drawing for a $30 gift voucher to Verve Stamps! Check out all the details about prizes and this month's sale over at the Verve Blog.

For my creation, I started with this week's Mojo Monday Sketch.   This week's a contest, so might want to check out Mojo Monday this week!  ;)  As I was searching through my stamps, I decided to use Cup of Life from Verve.  This is definitely a set I haven't used in a LONG time!  Too long!  :)  I used some papers from the Lush Collection from My Mind's Eye.  I love all the different colors in this collection.  I stamped one of the teacups from Cup of Life onto Kraft cardstock in Kraft ink.  The focal sentiment was stamped in Early Espresso.  I added a little Prima flower and used some Truly, Madly, Deeply Ribbon to create "leaves".  The card was finished using some stitching and some adhesive pearls. 

Please visit the rest of the Divas to see some gorgeous eye candy!!  Thanks for stopping by!

I am chuckling as I sit here with my cup of tea and enjoy your card and the Verve sentiment. Workmen sawing and hammering all around me, but the cup of tea calms my soul. Those Mojo sketches are the best and yours is a keeper!

Thanks for sharing your talent!

All is good with kReN @
