Verve Triple Play Challenge

At the Verve Stamps blog there is a challenge to make three different things that coordinate. I made a card, a cookie tin, and a gift holder. I used stamps from my new Glad Tidings set, I love these snowflakes, aren't they gorgeous!! Here is a close-up of my items for the Project Parade:

The instructions for this treat box are here at SCS. The background stamp is from Verve's Bountiful Backgrounds set.

And here is the top of the lid:

This was so much fun, thanks for the challenge Julee! Join in on the fun, the challenge and project parade are here. Thanks for popping in for a peek, have a great week.

Viva la Verve Nov. Week 2

Boy, it's been busy here lately. Finally got a little time to myself this morning and made this card using one of the Viva la Verve sketches for this month. Here is the sketch and the inspiration picture. I love cardinals and knew I wanted to use this stamp from JustRite, it's one of my favorites, I colored it with Prismacolor pencils and OMS. I wanted to keep the card pretty simple, and use a lot of white like the picture. The ovals are stamped from a background stamp from Verve's Bountiful Backgrounds set, and the sentiment is from one of Verve's newest releases, Glad Tidings. A little piercing for a little interest, and that's it. Thank you so much for popping in, have a wonderful weekend!! :)

WCMD Revisited

I have never submitted any of my cards, I am still pretty new to card making, and can't stand rejection, lol! But when I saw Paper Craft's amazing prize pack that they were giving away for WCMD, I had to try. Well, I didn't receive an email saying that I was one of the lucky few, so I guess it is safe to go ahead and post pics of my non winners.

The first card is using the Puppy Love set from There She Goes, I love it, that little puppy is just so darn cute! The sign he is holding is blank, so you can pick your sentiment. I made a cloud mask and sponged the sky, and he is colored with Prismacolor pencils and OMS.

I love round cards! This one I tea dyed some vintage lace, and used a sentiment from Verve.
I had another card, but for some reason, that file was corrupted on my SD card.

I am thrilled that all the non winners, (I think it was like 1600, wow!) are going to Operation Write Home, such a fabulous cause!

Thank you so much for popping by, hope you have a fantastic weekend! :)

One More Mojo

I had a little time tonight and was able to fit in a second Mojo before the deadline. I really like this sketch and I got to use more of my new Verve :) The sentiment is from Dream Big (isn't that font gorgeous!!), and the stamps that I used for embossed background are from Love's Flower and Thankful Accents. Thank you for stopping in! :)
