Verve Diva Inspirations Hop


Diva Inspirations Blog Hop

Welcome to the June Diva Inspirations Blog Hop! Are you ready to start your day off with some eye candy? Our Diva Inspirations team and several special guests from the Release team are here to start your month off right with a little Verve inspiration! Take a little peek at each of the fabulous blogs below for some Verve-alicious eye candy and you just might win some Vervey goodness of your very own!

I have two cards to share with you today. First off, I used this week's Mojo Monday Sketch 193, and made it to look like a tire using sentiments from the Verve set Dad's Day, Classic Circle Scallops, Circle and Inverted Circle Spellbinders dies.
(Click on the photo for a closer look at the detail)

Here's the sentiment I included on the inside.


For my next card, I used a sentiment from the Verve set American Hero, embossed with Silver. The stars were made with the Spellbinders Star Nestabilities.


Here's the Master Hop List. You won't want to miss anything these gals have to share. Their designs are so inspirational!!
