Happy Sunday, yall! I hope you're having a great weekend. Mine has been good except I'm fighting the onset of a cold or something. Not fun, but I have gotten to do lots and LOTS of stamping!
If you haven't checked out the Verve Forum in a while, you're missing the Anni-VERVE-sary Celebration! Verve is turning one, and Julee is celebrating with 12 days of sketches. Everyone who participates in all 12 will be entered into a drawing to win the ENTIRE August Release...6 sets and 5 Plain Janes! Here is the master list of all the sketches, and HERE is the thread with all the info of the celebration and daily happenings. Go check it out!
Ok enough jibber jabber. Here are my 2 cards for Friday's & Saturday's sketches.
This one is for Sketch #1 from Friday. I love this sketch!!! It has so many layers and details, and I'm really happy with how this turned out. The triangles on the sides were created by cutting a scalloped square (punched with my Mega Scalloped Marvy Punch) in half. I added some Diamond Glaze on the centers of the flowers from Petals & Stems for extra pop, and then finally a sentiment from Uplifting Phrases.
This card uses one of the awesome sentiments in Asian Flair. I stamped it in Dark Brown Colorbox Chalk ink onto Watercolor paper and distressed the edges a bit. Then I broke out the Baja Breeze (Thanks, Amy!) and paired it with Chocolate Chip for a Verve color combo. Love this color!! Added some flourishes from Filigree Fantasy, some Bella Flatback Pearls, and Satin ribbon from Target and it was finished! I love it, if I do say so m'self.
I hope you enjoy my Verve cards today...I had such fun making them! Make sure you check the forum for today's new sketch...hopefully I'll have time to get it done! Have a wonderful day!
