Hello again friends. Popping in with my Viva la Verve card for this week. This is the one for the VLV  July Week 4 sketch.

(A2; Stamps: Verve (Poinsettia Christmas), Sentiment was a free with purchase from Verve; Die: Spellbinders, EF: Sizzix)

I wanted a really elegant Christmas card so I used the beautiful poinsettia from Poinsettia Christmas, cut a mask and heat embossed the outline stamp in gold EP by using VersaMark on the center flower, masked it and continued with VM until I had all of the flowers I needed. I used a wheat colored ink to stamp the solid part and added a touch of color with Copic Markers. I dry embossed one side of the white background and the gold circle. The sentiment is from Verve, but not part of this set. It came with an order as a thank you for purchasing.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello again friends. I don’t know why it has taken me so long to find this challenge! Verve has a monthly inspiration challenge so I thought I would give it a try today. This is for the July Inspiration Challenge.


(A2; Stamps: Art Impressions (SCO649); DP: Heidi Swapp; Striped Acetate: We R Memory Keepers; Die: Verve

The inspiration challenge is to use stripes, and since I just bought this striped acetate I really wanted to use it for this challenge. I decided to use it on the balloons. I cut the background in solid color card stock and then cut again on the acetate. I glued the acetate to the card stock and then glued the two pieces together. I stamped and then fussy cut the sentiment and attached it with foam tape.

For the sky background, I first used some cloud masks and inked in blue. I then dry embossed clouds on the same paper to add dimension. I hope you like my card!
