sharin' some verve...

Hello friends!!  I have a couple of cards to share today that I made using several different stamp sets from Verve.  Love, love, love my Verve!!

 
The first card I made combines the current Viva La Verve sketch (week 1) with the Verve Diva Inspiration challenge Shimmer & Shine.   Last year I purchased the super cute Verve set Rain or Shine, but had yet to ink it up.  As I was looking through my way to large stash of SU! patterned paper I saw this pack that had all these cute little umbrellas.  It was a match made in heaven!  Lots of die cutting and some paper piecing on this little number.  After laying everything up I added some clear rhinestones for a bit of "shimmer & shine".   Pretty darn pleased with how this one turned out!


The second card uses the current Mojo Monday sketch combined with Verve's Diva Dare Smitten challenge.  I used two different Verve sets for this card... On Occasion and Cheveron Love.  The patterned papers are from SU!, as well.  For this card I went a bit shabby and added distress ink to the framed sentiment and then distressed all the edges of the papers.  Some sequins (from Verve) were added to the little die cut hearts (also from Verve).

These are both so creative Rosemary . Love the umbrellas and the pretty papers used on the second card. I have a few Verve but could always use more.
