July Diva Inspirations 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 the rest of the month to link up, so feel free to play as often as you like.
Our July challenge is Sensational Stripes
Stripes go with everything! Make them nautical, or pair with florals for a graphic look. Use stripes however you're inspired! Use the inspiration graphic or head off in your own direction, just show us your stripes! 


I was inspired by all the beachy goodness in the photo - the beach is definitely where I go to dream, so this sentiment from Words of Wisdom seemed appropriate. 

The little tab peeking out was cut with the Classy Label Die. The Banner Bundle provided the flags behind the focal layer, an I embellished with stars from the Starry Die.

Challenge deadline: Friday, July 31.
Prize: $30 gift voucher to the Verve online store!

The Confetti Crew are hopping today, just like we do on the 8th of every month, to bring you even more inspiration using this release. You should have made it here from Kay's blog - if you need to start at the beginning of the hop, head on over to the Reverse Confetti blog


I have a scrappy card to share using the fab Globe Confetti Cuts and My World stamp set - love these! I also ADORE that Woodgrain Confetti Cuts - it's going to get a workout on my cards, that's for sure. 


My sentiment is stamped on vellum cut with a Stitched Flag Trio Confetti Cuts. I've also used my fave Triple Chevies as a layer in the background. Some washi, enamel dots and woodgrain alpha stickers finish the card. 


It's time to head on over and visit Laurie now, thanks for stopping by!

SFYTT June - Masculine Birthday


Hello! I'm popping in with my take on this month's Sketch For You To Try! This is my lovely husband's birthday card, he's 33 today!


Here's my take...


Roundabout Additions was just perfect for this sketch, and I've used lots of lovely Confetti Cuts to build the layers - Documented, Circles 'n Scallops, Triple Chevies, Shakers 'n Frames.


I used the Oh My Stars Confetti Cuts to cut some embellishments. The balloons are from the fun Monkey Business set.  

Here's a peek inside...
