January Diva Inspirations Hop.....

Hi there!  I'm happy to welcome you to the very first Diva Inspirations Hop of the New Year!  I have made a few changes in my stamping life and moving from the Verve Release Team to the Verve Diva Inspiration Team is one of them!  I'm really excited to be here!

  The Diva Inspiration Team is here to start your month off with a little Verve inspiration!  You may notice we've changed the date to the 5th of each month......same fabulous inspiration, different date!  You can start the Hop at the Verve Blog!  Continue to each blog and leave a comment as you go for your chance to win some Verve goodness of your own!



I started my card with this week's awesome Mojo Monday sketch, Mojo222.  The sentiment, from Making a Statement, was stamped in Dark Chocolate ink and was cut out with the Curvy Bookplate Die.  The outline stamp, from Tag Time, was stamped in Taken With Teal ink.  The butterfly, from Blue Skies, was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black, was colored with Copics and was cut out.  I glued the center of the butterfly down and popped with wings up with foam squares.  Some adhesive gems and machine stitching finish the card!  All of the papers are Authentique Splendid (6x6).

Your next stop on the hop is to the amazing blog of Jen del Muro!




Thanks for stopping by!

You always make so many layers look easy. This is very pretty Jackie. Congrats on the new assignment.

Nicole said...

You pulled out some of my favorites!! Definitely think this would be the design team I'm best suited for. Love to dip into the older sets, I hate that they get shuffled away so soon as new product comes out. Not enough time in the day to make all we want to. Thanks for the reminder of the Blue Skies butterfly. He flits from set to set quite nicely, doesn't he?

Oh I love all the different papers you used for this! I'm curious...did you use a die for each layer? Or did you freehand cut the one with a "v"? It's so perfectly straight...something I can never accomplish freehand...just curious.

Gorgeous creation and welcome to the inspiration team!
