August Verve Diva Inspiration Hop!


Welcome to Verve's August Diva Inspirations Hop. It's the 5th of the month and that means it's time for the Divas to serve up some fresh inspiration with their Verve stamps! Leave some comment love along the hop spots for a chance to win a prize, then grab some stamps and play along with our August inspiration challenge for another chance to win!

Our August challenge is Sequined Stunner:


I pulled out one of my favorite Verve sets:  Dream Big and the coordinating Scalloped Flowers Die Set.  Using a bold pink color for my flowers, I lined the centers with gorgeous Clear Sequins in 4mm/6mm/8mm.  I just love how they look as flower centers!  My background was created by spritzing a stencil with silver mist.

Sequins are the perfect embellishment - sparkly, affordable and with lots of texture. Add some sequins to your project this month to make it a sequined stunner! Feel free to use the graphic as inspiration or not.
