Blessings Be More and a HOP

Happy March!  It's time for the March Diva Inspirations Hop and I'm the first stop on the hop!  Hop around to the entire list and leave a little comment love for a chance to win a $30 Verve gift certificate!  Then once you've found a little inspiration, go ink up some Verve and enter yourself in our March Verve Fan Hop!  There's a couple more awesome gift certificates up for grabs if you do!  You can read all the details over on the Verve Blog today!


With the start of a new month, comes a new Stamp of the Month and this month we're featuring Blessings!  I used it here on a little home decor project.  The Blessings set has a few large Irish blessings, two elegant flourishes and several all occasion sentiments, making it perfect for St. Patty's Day and year-round use too!  And during the month of March it's 30% off!  Check it out over at the Verve store and while you're there don't miss the Spring Savings Sale page.

For this project, I created a wall hanging from a chipboard frame I picked up on clearance.  I covered the chipboard with Bo Bunny Paper, then inked up the edges with Vintage Photo ink.  The center frame is a QuicKutz die and I embossed the Irish blessing in Chocolate Chip Craft ink, then stamped the flourish in Bermuda Bay.  For embellishment, I chose a fabulous Prima butterfly from my stash then used some swarovskis and teardrop rhinestones from Pizzazz Aplenty.  To finish things off, I simply punched two holes with my crop-a-dile and threaded some May Arts ribbon through, knotting the ends on the back.

That's all from me today.  Be sure to check out the rest of the fabulous Diva inspirations below.  Next up on the hop is BETTY!
