{RC} Verve Blog Hop


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.


And here are my two cards that I made for this amazing hop!


I've used some fabulous RC Seam Binding (in melon )....on this first card, I spritzed the bow with water and crumpled up the ribbon. It's topped with a button tied with black Jute Twine. The Verve set I used is Stronger Love and I used the Jotted Heart die.



For my second card I've used the Vintage Seam Binding as well, only this time in Black. I accented the sentiment with the Arrow  A Cut Above die. The stamps that I used for this card are from the set Wings of Love
Here's a closeup of those layered, glittery wings! 

Other Supplies: MFT dies, TCP dies, SU chunky glitter, SU rhinestones
