Come join us over the next 9 days as we showcase the 23 new stamps and dies releasing from Verve! We'll be counting down the minutes and revealing all the new sets in our forum from 9-11pm Eastern on Friday, August 24, so make plans now to join us for our release party!

In the meantime, we've got a fun filled hop for you today! So let your fingers do the clicking and peek into the creative minds of Verve's talented Divas and Guest Divas as they give you a little tour of what's to come! Inspiration abounds, and so do the PRIZES! 

That's right! We've picked a mystery blog from today's hop and hidden a prize! So be sure to give a little shout out in the comment section as you hop around to each blog on the list. We’ll draw a random winner from all of the comments on the mystery blog to win today's featured sets and dies.

In today's card, I am using one of the new frame dies and a sentiment from Borderline.  These frame dies are amazing because they include a little mat for the smaller shape!  I love it!

I had to breakout some pattern paper and a little ribbon today.  I thought this was a fun color combo for a birthday card!  Your next stop is Jen's blog.  And below is the list of hoppers if you would like to start back at the beginning!  

Hope you are having a great day!  Hope to see you tomorrow for the last day of hops!

Beautiful card. I love what you did with the ribbon... It gives the impression that it was just flowing across the page, but got stopped up at the edge!

Oooh, I love dies that have a small mat - yummy! The ribbon looks really pretty - I should try that for some interest rather than always tying a bow :)

oh so yummy and perfect for a birthday!

Mrs. GraceWorks said...

I was looking forward to clicking on your link today! : ) I like the fact that you used the dies without their matching border stamp. The crispness of the white against the colors in the card is fantastic and the little bit of gathering on the ribbon adds just enough dimension to the card. Perfect!
