Verve October Release Retrospective Hop



Welcome to Verve's October Release Retrospective Blog Hop! The Verve Divas are hopping today and serving up some more inspiration using the October release stamps & dies! Besides a look-see at some really nifty cards, there's also a comment prize up for grabs!


I've been having so much fun with the new Pink Power and Inspire Hope stamp sets so I created a card using them, plus this week's Viva la Verve sketch and inspiration picture!




I love the little bloom stamps in the Inspire Hope set, so I cut out some circles with my 1" circle punch and stamped some in pink, some in gray, and then I embossed a couple with silver embossing powder.  The little hearts on the white panel and the ribbon on the sentiment panel are from Pink Power. 


I stamped and embossed the frame from Inspire Hope in white on a piece of vellum and cut it out so I only had the bottom "bracket". I layered the sentiment circle on top and then added some Shine Bright sequins and pink twine to wrap it up...
