Verve Diva Inspirations July 2012 Blog Hop

It's July 5th and that means it's time for another Verve Divas Inspirations Blog Hop! On the 5th of each month, the Verve Divas Inspirations Team will be sharing creations using some of our favorite Verve sets from both past and present, and as always, there are PRIZES!!

You can start the hop at the beginning on the Verve Blog and continue on through each fabulous blog - be sure to leave a little comment love along the way and you just might win some Verve goodies of your own! If you arrived here from the talented Jen d's blog, then you're on the right track!


I kept things pretty simple this time. My birthday card stash is getting low, and so is my free time stash, so I whipped up a quick and easy girly birthday card - I have several girlfriends with birthdays coming up and know I'll be needing a few of these (unlike most people, flowery / girly cards are actually much harder for me to create than masculine / boy cards).


I used some of the papers from the new Heydey line from Studio Calico and practiced a little more with splattering my Mister Huey's mists - I think I'm getting a little better at it? Then I pulled out my Great Friend stamp set and used all three of those amazing flowers, layering them on top of each other. The sentiment is from the newer coordinating Joyful Blooms set. After adding a quick baker's-twine-tied button to the flower center, I was done! Like I said, quick and easy!


That's it from me today. Julee is next up on the hop, so head on over to see what kind of fabulousness she's created and then keep on hopping along! Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to stop by the Verve Blog as well to check out the new specials going on this month!! Believe me, you won't want to miss it!!

Love the flower and the splatter! Isn't it funny, if you don't want something to splatter you get an oops, but when you really want one it is so hard to get it right!

Heather said...

It sure doesn't look like you have a hard time with "girly" cards! : ) LOVE your flower. That set (and dies) are next on my list of "must haves". Love it in white and your papers are gorgeous!

Anne B said...

I also have trouble doing girlish cards, and I appreciate the simple design you've used for this card. I also need to make some birthday cards for friends, and this one is perfect. Looks like I now have yet another Verve stamp and die set going onto my wish list!
