Verve/Ribbon Carousel Blog Hop



Hello Verve fans! We have a special treat for you today, the sweet Verve Divas have partnered up with the talented Ribbon Carousel Crew to bring you some beautiful eye candy in the form of a joint blog hop! This hop promises to be overflowing with crafty goodness and lots of "loving" inspiration! 

The Ribbon Carousel Designers are using Verve's Stronger Love and Wings of Love stamp sets in addition to the Arrow die. Corinna, owner of the Ribbon Carousel, sent us all some beautiful ribbons in whites, pinks and reds to use in conjunction with our 'lovey' stamps. We'd love for you to participate and hop along with us...do you know why? It's almost Christmas time and who wouldn't love some crafty gifts just for themselves!



I chose to use 2 new Verve sets:  Joyous Noel and Holiday Greetings

The pointsettia and sentiment are from Joyous Noel


The sweet trio, of ribbon and lace in the corner, is from the Ribbon Carousel, as well as that gorgeous trimmed red grossgrain ribbon.  I just sewed it along the center and gathered it to ruffle it up a bit.



The tree and packages are from Holiday Greetings.  They're both paper pieced and the tree is layered so each section curls a bit to give it a little more dimension.

Now, lets talk prizes!   
Hop along with us today and leave some blog love for the Verve Divas and the Ribbon Carousel Crewmates to be eligible to win one of the 2 prizes up for grabs!  We'll select 2 random commenters from 2 randomly selected designer's blogs, so be sure to spread the love around!
The Verve Stamps prize is the ENTIRE November Release, and the RC prize is a NEW Ribbon Carousel with your choice of knob color!

       


Ready to Hop?!

Thanks for dropping by!
Happy Stamping!
