Rising

Hi friends!  It's the 5th of the month and that means it's time for the Divas to put on a little hop to breathe new life into previously released Verve sets and dies.  I'm the first stop along the hop and I thought I'd let you know that there's a PRIZE up for grabs! Leave a little shout out in the comment section of each blog as you hop about to be entered in a drawing for a $30 gift certificate to Verve Stamps! Check out all the details and prize info over at the Verve Blog.

This month we're also saying a fond farewell to Jen del Muro, as this is her last hop as a Verve Diva. She's been a part of the Verve team almost from the very beginning and although I'm sad to see her go, I'm so excited to see the things she has up her sleeve for the stamping world!


My card uses this week's Viva la Verve! April Week 2 sketch and the Learning to Sail set.  I stamped the sentiment on cream cardstock, then stamped the sun and banner on yellow paper from the Park Bench collection.  The banner is cut out and popped up over the sentimetn and I hand cut the sun image and pieced onto the same stamped image layered onto the Frosty Snowflakes Die Set.  A little Antique Linen sponging around the edges and some black washi tape and sequin accents finish things off.  Oh and a bit of stickles and rhinestones for sparkle!

As a bonus to our hop this month we've got a WHOLE lot (as in almost 100) of sets & dies marked down 30%, to clear a little room for our next release. Check it out on our SALE PAGE (you'll also find our latest release sprinkled in there and marked down 10%). Okay, enough on the side note... time to hop along to the next stop....  Amy Kolling!
