Happy July!

Welcome to the July Diva Inspirations Blog Hop! Our Diva Inspirations team and several special guests from the Release team are here to start your month off right with a little Verve inspiration! Take a little peek at each of the fabulous blogs below for some Verve-alicious eye candy and you just might win some Vervey goodness of your very own!

So here's some eye candy for you, now that my camera has a fully functioning battery! *sigh*


I used Carpe Cupcake, July's Stamp of the month. So cute!! The sentiment is from Birthday Bash (which is on sale, too!), and I added some flowers from Hope Blooms, stamped in Black Stazon on Vellum, then colored with Copic Markers.
Here's a closer look at the details:

Sian Ridley said...

See, I knew it'd be worth the wait! I really like the clean lines of your layout and then the textures you used for your cupcake-the contrast really works! And who doesn't love a bit of sparkle! :)

Connie and Jack said...

I love your treatment of the cupcake...but oh, those flowers!!! I'd have NEVER thought of the vellum, staz-on and marker thing. If I use Copics with the staz-on, it won't harm the markers, will it?

TFS!!
