September Verve Diva Inspiration Hop!


Welcome to Verve's September 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 September inspiration challenge for another chance to win!

This month's challenge is entitled Sweet September:


Sugar-high! Get sugary sweet with pastels, cupcakes or candy. Create a calorie free confection to delight the senses! Feel free to use the graphic as inspiration or not.

As soon as I saw this inspiration photo, I knew I had to use the Carpe Cupcake set in my stash (was released back in August of 2010).  I've Copic colored and paper pieced my cuppie.  I added some "sprinkles" to the top and glossy accents.


9.5.14

My sentiment is from the new(er) set called Cupcakes and was nestled into the die cut Rounded Scallop Frame.  Before adhereing the pieces, I used my Heidi Swapp Color Shine spray in GOLD to add drops of the gold.  :)
