June Diva Inspirations Blog Hop

Hi friends! It's the 10th of the month and that means it's time for our monthly blog hop and challenge! I'm the first stop along today's hop, so settle in and let's get hopping!

There are TWO $30 gift vouchers to the Verve store up for grabs this month and two ways to win! First, comment on the design team's blog hop posts (linked below) for an entry in the first giveaway. Then to be entered into our challenge prize drawing, go get inky and link up your take on the challenge. You have until July 5 to link up. Feel free to play along with the challenge as many times as you like. Verve stamps aren't required to play, but we do smile a little brighter when we see them!


For my card, I pulled out the newly restocked Dream Big stamp set. It's one of my favorites, and I was super excited to stamp with it again. I embossed the flowers in tangerine tango on some BasicGrey designer paper, then cut with the coordinating Scalloped Flowers Die Set.  The leaves are stamped in smoky slate on the same color of card stock and cut with the coordinating Dreamy Leaves Die Set.  I accented with a starburst rhinestone.



The sentiment is stamped in smoky slate on a Stitched Pennant and then I layered a bit of cheesecloth behind for some texture.  The cloudy dp seemed like the perfect backdrop, so I finished off with some distressed edges.


Thanks so much for stopping by today! 
The challenge deets and hop list are below and Betty's blog is the next stop along the hop!



Summertime is on the way and a soft beachy vibe is our inspiration this month. Soft neutrals and bold pops of color are sure to bring a bit of summer flair to your projects. Take your inspiration from the graphic or follow the color pattern, just have fun stamping. We can't wait to see what you create!
