October Release Retrospective Blog 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 dug through some of my old papers and came up with Basic Grey's Origins line. I don't often use yellow, but I really liked the way this one came out. I stamped the sentiment from Verve's Inspire Hope set onto a Sweet Scallop Tag die. I then stamped the mums from the same said set in Chocolate ink and added some Buttercup Liquid Pearl centers. I also added some of Verve's Pastel Sequin Mix to the tag and the card base.
