September Diva Inspirations Blog Hop!

Hello! If you've never been a part of our monthly inspiration hops, you are missing out! The divas all pull out some of our favorite sets that haven't seen ink in awhile and show them some love! 


I'm sure if you've been around, you know we just had a release, right? Well a few of our new stamps coordinate with an older set, Dream Big! I just had to pull Dream Big out again so I could play with my  
new stuff too!

I used the new Scalloped Flowers die to cut the flowers out and then I stamped the flowers from Dream Big in Crumb Cake and Bermuda Bay ink. I cut some leaves out with the new Dreamy Leaves die and then stamped the leaves from Dream Big in Memento Lettuce ink. I added some buttons to the flower centers because a flower just doesn't seem finished until I do, haha!
The sentiment is from Dream Big and the faux stitches are from the new set Borderline.


I cut a banner out with my Ribbon Banner die and then added the new Pennant Trim die to the sides of the banner. Add a couple more buttons and that's all she wrote! I used last week's Colour Q challenge for the color combo and this week's CPS sketch for the layout!
I hope you find some time this week to pull out some of your beloved stamps that haven't see any ink for awhile and breathe new life into them! 

Check out what my Diva sisters were inspired to create!

I love the colors as well as mixing old and new stamps and working them both together on one card. I love dies and the flower and leave dies are always useful to help place extra interest on most cards.

love how those dreamy leaves just branch out! Really like how you've layered on this card! Confession: I love adding buttons to my flowers all the time! They make the cutest centres. I recently saw bottle caps as centres that looked pretty cool too.
