Diva Inspirations Challenge and Blog Hop!



It's 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! You have until December 5 to link up, so feel free to play as often as you like.

Our November challenge is Rustic Winter 
The days are turning cold and the splendor of fall is changing to the majestically rustic beauty of a winter woodland. This month we're challenging you to bring a little bit of that rustic winter to your creations. Follow the graphic or head off on your own trail, just show us your rustic winter creations!

If you came from Marisa's Blog, you're in the right place!  For my card, I used the Unto Us set from Verve along with some papers from the Timbergrove Collection from Fancy Pants.  I really took the colors from the inspiration photo.  I stamped and die cut the frame using the coordinating Classy Label Die.  

I stamped embossed the snowflakes from the set onto the woodgrain panel and also stamped and embossed the deer.  I used the Sprightly Sprigs Die Set to add some foliage to the card in both green and white.  The white was also coated in Icicle Stickles to give it some sparkle.  Next on today's hop is Stacey!!

Wow! I love the colors and the rustic feel of this card. The little deer are just too cute and the perfect touch!

Love the white embossing. I made 50 cards using embossing years ago and it put me off it for-nearly-ever. Maybe it's time to give it a go again! Thank you for the inspiration. The diagonal stripes, the layered foliage, the white embossing... All of it!
