Ribbon Carousel & Verve Stamps Blog Hop

Hi there!!

The Ribbon Carousel Crewmates are teaming up with the talented designers from Verve Stamps to bring you a blog hop overflowing with crafty goodness and lots of "loving" inspiration!
Julee was so generous to our team of designers, sending stamps and dies to create with.  With Verve Stamps AND some ribbon and twine from the Ribbon Carousel, we're wowing you today with gorgeous creations!  

Here’s a little about Verve:

Verve Stamps is a clear art stamp boutique specializing in uplifting and faith inspired clear stamps and coordinating steel dies. Our products are designed by Julee Tilman and are available online exclusively through this website or in the Treasure Valley at the Inspiration BoutiqueVerve stamps are high quality clear stamps manufactured in the USA.

Now, lets talk prizes!   

Hop along with us today and leave some blog love for our Ribbon Carousel Crewmates and the Verve Stamps designers to be eligible to win one of the 2 prizes up for grabs!  We'll select 2 random commenters from 2 randomly selected designer blog, so be sure to spread the love around!

The Verve Stamps prize is the ENTIRE November Release, and the RC prize is a NEW Ribbon Carousel with your choice of knob color! 

Here's the card I created for the hop! I must admit that these are the only Verve Stamps in my collection, and even though I am new to them, I fell in LOVE with the quality of these beautiful stamps! I used the Stronger Love stamp set. There were so many beautiful quotes in this set that I hard a hard time picking just one. This would be a great stamp set to make a set of notecards with! 

I used the Echo Park For the Record 2 Documented papers (on sale at Ribbon Carousel right now!!), and the layout is Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #173. I used some twine from Ribbon Carousel, did a lot of stitching, and accented my sentiment panel with some Liquid Pearls. Love how this card turned out! :)


That's it for me... ready to hop?!
