VLV I Heart You

Pin It


It's Friday and time for another Viva la Verve Sketch!  This week I'm the hostess, so I hope you can find some time to play along! 

For my card, I used the You and I set along with the coordinating I Heart U Die set.  Because I wanted a bigger heart, I used the Heart Quartet Die for the heart.  The papers are from the Plus One Collection by Amy Tangerine for American Crafts. 

The sketch is pretty simple, so hopefully it will inspire you to create!!  Thanks for stopping by!

Verve October Release Retrospective Blog Hop

Pin It

Welcome to Verve's October Release Retrospective Blog Hop! The Verve Divas are hopping today and serving up some more inspiration using the October release stamps & dies! Besides a look-see at some really nifty cards, there's also a comment prize up for grabs!  If you came from Jen's Blog, you're in the right place! 

For my card today, I used the Masquerade set from Verve along with the Mask Die Set.   I die cut and embossed the mask in black and stamped and embossed the sentiment, feathers and stars in gold.  I thought it added a nice zing to the Halloween colors.  :)  I also used this week's Mojo Monday Sketch for my card!  Next on the hop is Laurie!

Smile

Pin It


I have a simple and fun card to share today.  It's colorful and sure to brighten someone's day!  I used the Pockets &Pages 3x4 Bubble In Die from Taylored Expressions for the basic idea of the card.  I like that the die speaks for itself. . .just a thought that was put onto a card.  :)  I die cut this out of some Oreo cardstock. 

Instead of stamping, I decided to use another die and embed that in the speech bubble.  I decided the Pockets & Pages Circle Words worked well.  I die cut smile out of Lollipop and Peapod cardstocks and then pieced it together to give the two tone image.  I cut a 3x4 piece of patterned paper from the Double the Fun Paper Pack and attached that to the card base.  I mounted the speech bubble on top of that with foam tape.

Hope this card made you smile today!  Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

Pin It

Happy World Cardmaking Day and welcome to Verve's October 2014 Release Celebration! Three new sets, three new dies and a sequin mix just released this morning and the Divas are here to share some of our first looks at the new goodies with you!


My card uses the Pink Power set.   I just LOVE this silhouette image and the sentiment.  It makes me smile.  I used this week's Mojo Monday Sketch for my card as well.  I don't have any sets like this in my collection, so this set is perfect!
