Verve Release Retrospect Blog Hop

christmasblessingsmaureenplut

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

I couldn’t help but make a chalkboard-ish card for one of my teacher friends.  I am all about non traditional colours for Christmas (but very traditional about the true meaning of Christ’s birth…go figure!).  I used two of the new Verve Holiday stamp sets.  The sentiment is from Weary World and those sweet poinsettias are from Pinecone Christmas and the matching dies from Poinsettia Pinecones Die Set.

Want to win some shiny new Verve? We'll be picking a random commenter on one of the hop spots below to win a $50 gift voucher to Verve! So be sure to leave a little comment on all the blogs below to increase your chances! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the details.

I love the scrolls above and below the sentiment. Must remember to use red with white on the poinsettias. Gorgeous Moe.

I adore the black, white and red you have used here which is so elegant, and perfectly finished with the red and white baker's twine and the red bells, and the chalk board type sentiment. x
