February Verve Diva Inspiration Hop!


Diva Hop


It's time for the Verve Divas to bring you our monthly Diva Inspirations Challenge and Blog Hop! There are two ways to win Verve prizes: comment on the design team's blog hop posts (linked below) to see their take on the inspiration, then go get inky and link up your take on the challenge to be eligible in our prize drawings! You have until March 5 to link up, so feel free to play as often as you like.



The pop of color in this industrial style loft speaks of the hope of spring in the midst of winter. Kind of like February... it's still cold and wintry, but new life is on the horizon. Feel free to take your inspiration from the photo or the color combo, whatever suits your fancy! We can't wait to see what you create.

With this inspiration photo, I loved the florals and color.  I went with a lightly sponged polka dot background in grey.  I white heat embossed flowers from Surely Goodness and watercolored with Distress Inks.  I added some watercolored diecut leaves from Leafy Sprigs and added them behind my flowers.  My sentiment, from Poppy Birthday, was stamped in grey ink onto my sponged background.  A few sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh were added as an embellishment.

Dreamboat2 

Hello!  I'm sharing a card that's up on the Avery Elle blog today.  

I had so much fun with this card!  I did a little background watercoloring!  I created my own background stripes with watercolor paper, paintbrush, and Distress Ink!  I love how it turned out!  This was my first attempt!  I also watercolored some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and used a wavy die from my stash to cut the "waves".  I layered the waves over my striped background.  The "sun" in the background was also watercolored!

I used the adorable set called Dreamboat and it's coordinating Ellements Dies.  My boat and little people were all Copic colored and a few white accents were added using my white pigment Signo pen.

Share the Love Event!


Share the Love 

Hello and welcome to the Share the Love Blog Hop! The idea of this event is to make a card and send it to someone you love. We are part of an amazing hobby and we can use our talent to put a smile on someone’s face. You can send it to a friend or family member who has a birthday, needs some encouragement, or just to say hi. Make sure to leave a comment on all of the blogs on this hop to be eligible to win a $25 gift certificate
to the Mint Owl Studio store. There will be one winner chosen, so the more blogs you comment on, the better your chance is to win!


I used a new(er) set called Some Bunny from Mint Owl Studio.  This set is darling!  I knew that I wanted to pair them with one of the Woven embossing folders from We R Memory Keepers for some texture.  My bunnies were colored with Copics and added to a diecut circle with foam adhesive.  And for some sparkle, I added some gold glitter hearts and a few banners.

Reverse Confetti February Blog Hop!


Swirlies2 

Welcome to the January Reverse Confetti Blog Hop!  Have you seen some amazing new stuff this week from Reverse Confetti?  With 4 new stamp sets, 6 new Confetti Cuts, and new QCP.....there is something for everyone for this release!  I just LOVE that we have some SPRING goodies to share!


The hop started over on the Reverse Confetti blog and I am the next stop! It would be worth your while to start at the beginning of the hop, so you don’t miss a thing. We have tons of inspiration for you to see using Reverse Confetti stamp sets and dies!  The new release is AVAILABLE now!

My first card uses lots of new products including these new multi step flowers called Garden Bunch.  I've arranged my flowers over a Swirlies Confetti Cuts and added some Leafy Confetti Cuts.  My white panel was cut using the Edgers Confetti Cuts.  For my sentiment, I added a diecut "hello" from Fancy Words Confetti Cuts.  As a final touch, I HAD to add some Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

My next card uses the newest addition to the Pretty Panels Confetti Cuts: Bold Line.  I've layered it onto the tag from Tag Me, Too and added some diecut hearts from Love Note Confetti Cuts.

Garden Bunch

Who doesn't love a good floral set?  A layering one?  I know I do!  Garden Bunch is a fantastic floral set that you can stamp as layered as you want to!  I did some second generation stamping on the floral colors to get the two tone look to the colors.  My flowers were diecut using the matching dies.  These were added onto a Wreath Confetti Cuts and layered onto a scored note card.  I did add in some Leafy Confetti Cuts too!  My sentiment is from the new set called The Lord's Strength and was stamped inside my wreath.  A few Pretty Pink Posh sparkling clear sequins were added to give it some shine.

Oh this release is just FABULOUS!  I am sharing a card made using the new Flower Wrap Confetti Cuts.  My flower wrap was diecut from Kraft cardstock and folded adding some Pink Sorbet twine to attach my tiny tag.  I also cut a smaller scrap of white cardstock from the Flower Wrap and trimmed it down to add as "tissue paper" inside the flower wrap.  For the flowers, I diecut them using the dies included and colored/shaded with Copics.  My flower wrap was layered onto a diecut Gift Card Holder Tag with a diecut center using the new Hoppin' Dots QCP.  To finish this off, I added a stamped sentiment from A Friend Like You onto the tag from In the Bag.  I just love the BOLD black sentiment!
