I need a HERO - Hopping with the Divas

Verve just released 3 new sets last night and the Divas are celebrating with a new release hop today! I'm the first stop on the hop, so grab a cup of coffee, nestle in, and hop on down, hop on down, hop on down the road. :) We’ve hidden a little prize for one lucky commenter along the hop, so be sure to spread a little comment love around as you hop! Okay, well, maybe the prize isn't so little. {grin} You could win the ENTIRE release, so let’s get hoppin’!

Here's my girl-licious card using American Hero….

I just fell in love with this font when I saw it, and this Hero stamp was the very first stamp I designed with it.  I just love the look of it, especially with the trio of shooting stars perched below it.  I used the same trio stamp to create a little border at the bottom of the card, and colored them in with Copics.  The top stars are also from the set.  The stars up top are actually the same size, I just used the small SU! star punch for the black stars and hand cut around the pink star to make to make it larger.  The pink paper is totally glitter-tastic.  I found a pack of glitter paper on clearance at Jo-Ann's and have been excited to use it.  I embossed it with the star Cuttlebug folder for a little texture, then added some star rhinestones for accents all along my punched border and on my stamped stars.

Oh, the sketch is my take on this week's Sketch For You To Try by Jen del Muro.  There's a little Verve prize if you participate in this week's challenge, so be sure to check it out!  And since Jen's the next stop on the hop, I'm betting you just might!
Thanks so much for hopping by today! Just in case the oh-so-reliable Blogger malfunctions, I'll leave you with the complete hop link list.  Happy hopping!

  32. I just ordered my first Verve stamps late last week, rec'd them and used the Plain Janes and the sentiment set several times over. The other set I ordered was for the holidays so will be using them before to long--maybe Christmas in July.

    I have enjoyed the blog hop--I started with Charmaine and have maybe a couple more stops. Everyone does fantastic work and really shows what can be done with the newest release. Thanks for the chance to win the collection--I just might get lucky.
