Verve Release Retrospect Blog Hop

nevertoooldmaureenplut

Welcome to Verve's July Release Retrospective Blog Hop! The Verve Divas and guests are hopping today and serving up some more inspiration using the July release stamps & dies! Besides a peek at some really cool cards, there are also a couple of prizes up for grabs!

I have been dabbling in art journals and mixed media this month and although I haven’t tried anything YET, I’ve been inspired by texture and cut out words.  I’m using the new Happy Place stamp set along with the matching Happy Doodles Die Set.  I had the birthday sentiment from Be Blessed sitting on my desk from the last release and thought it was perfect for the bottom of the card :)  I HAD to find an inspiring phrase to tie into the birthday theme and found the perfect one in Words of Wisdom.  I was inspired by Amber’s card HERE where she cut up a sentiment.  I just love the look!  I left out the “goal” part of the sentiment and just left the dream part :) Then I traced around each word with my black pen.
