Let's catch up on some Verve

I have been making several Verve cards throughout the month for the releases and challenges that I haven't had the time to post. Here is kinda of a "catch up" post. Lots of Vervey goodness in one place! LOL!

This card I made for Verve's Paper Craft Planet's 12 days of Christmas. Verve sponsored Day 7 (today) and the challenge was to make an elegant card using black and white with a splash of color. I used Ornamental Christmas and used rose red for my splash.

This card uses Poinsettia Christmas. I paired it with some Basic Grey Figgy Pudding DP, some organdy ribbon and silver cord.

This cutie pie uses Snow Wonderful. This little snowman is SUPER cute! I love him, mostly cause I don't have much to color on him! Makes cute cards QUICK to make!! The stamped piece on the right is from the large BG builder stamp in the set. Don't you just LOVE that argyle ribbon? It's from Heidi's store, of course!

This card uses the Tall Oaks set. I absolutely LOVE the graceful and elegant pumpkins and acorn in this set. I used some cheapy DP I found at Target for $1 and it's even embossed! Love little finds like that. The images are colored with copics and then painted with Shimmerz.
This was for last week's SCS sketch challenge. It doesn't use a new release stamp set, but I just love those cute little butterflies, I just had to share!! It uses my FAV sentiment set, Happy Thoughts and the butterflies are from Fluttering By. The DP is PTI's Pink Patterns.

Well, that's it for now! Believe it or not, I actually have about 3 more, but I didn't want to drag this post on forEVAH! LOL! So, maybe in a week or so, when I am knee deep in making multiple sets of monogram cards for my sister, I will post more.

Thanks for stopping by.
