viva la verve...

Hello friends!!  Wow... we are having some amazingly beautiful weather this weekend!!   Absolutely love it!!  Have a couple of cards to share that I made for the Viva La Verve challenge (week #2 and week #3).   I actually used two different paper pads for the cards, but the colors used are so similar that you wouldn't know it! 


The first card uses the Viva La Verve week #2 sketch.  For that card I used papers from the Teresa Collins Nine & Co pad and the following Verve stamps sets Great Friends and Take Note and the Verve Flag It dies.  I stamped and cut two different sizes of flowers and before adhering them together I added some silver metallic thread behind the smaller flower.  I used the large leafy image and stamped it using Stampin Up! Pool Party ink.  The sentiment is from Take Note and was stamped on the banner using VersaFine Onyx Black ink.


On Thursday I was able to make a quick trip up to Impress Rubber Stamps and got a few things.  Everything was on sale (YAY!) so that made the trip even sweeter.  One of the things I got was a gorgeous pad of My Mind's Eye papers from the On Trend line.  For the Viva La Verve week #3 card I used the Verve set Surely Goodness as well as the matching dies and the Verve Pennant Trim die.   The pennant was die cut twice.  Once from white cardstock and then once from patterned paper and then adhered together with the white pennant peeking out from behind the patterned paper one.  Love the touches of gold foiling that can be found in the On Trend paper line... it is gorgeous!!

 
Thanks so much for stopping by...

YAY, it's good to know you are having great weather.

Rosemary, both cards are simply beautiful. Sometimes I struggle with certain sketches, but you certainly make every sketch shine.

I agree with Greta, you SHOULD be on the Verve DT. I'm predicting that Julee will be asking you real soon.
