Hello Creative Friends,
Can’t believe another week has flown by and we are starting another one. This whole year seems to be going so fast. Life itself seems to be going at such a speed I can’t keep up. My daughter Tara graduates this week from 8th grade so it will be a busy week for us.
Today I’m sharing my last card for the Verve Sketch Challenge for May. This was a CAS (Clean and Simple) sketch. For my image I chose one of the Verve Plain Jane stamps called Amazing Grace. I’m not much for larger stamp sets as I usually only end up using one or two of them when I have a large set anyway so the individual Plain Janes are perfect for me.
For this card I used some Spring Feast paper from 1st Edition (found that awhile back at Hobby Lobby). The cardstock is Stampin’ Up! in Pool Party and that’s the same color of ink I used for the stamped image. I put a little faux stitching along the edges for detail. If you click on the image you can see the stamped image a little clearer.
Hope you have a wonderful week,
I’m at Week #4 for the Verve Sketch Challenge for May. Yeah! I finally finished another card. I really do love this sketch. I used my new Verve Small Celebrations stamp set for this card. I’m enjoying this set because it has several sentiments which I can change out for the circle frame. I used some of the Tim Holtz distress ink on my stamped images.
I dug out some paper from one of my old K&Company Paper pads and used some Rose Red cardstock and ribbon which I found on the Stampin’ Up! Clearance rack. I always loved that color of theirs. Thought it was a perfect match for my paper. By the way, I got my new Stampin’ UP! catalog in the mail this past week and I just love some of their new items for paper piercing. Can’t wait until June when you can actually order out of it. I haven’t been a SU demo for a few years but I still like their cardstock and like getting a few other things from there. Their catalogs have lots of project ideas so that’s why I like pouring over it. It’s what I’ve been taking with me this week while I wait to pick my daughter up at school. If you need your own catalog, go see Patty.
Well, I have a lot to do today so I”m off to get some things done. Hope you all have a beautiful and creative day.
Hello Creative Friends,
Since I needed a thank you card this week, that’s what I did for the Verve Sketch Challenge for May Week 3.
I used some K& Company paper and the Delightful and Delicious Verve stamp set for the saying and cup. The little note pages are also a Verve stamp called, Notebook Paper. I just love that little stamp. I inked the edges of everything to give it a little dimension. I didn’t want to put any ribbons or buttons or anything on it that stuck up because I need to send this one through the mail.

Have a creative day,
Thought I’d enter the Verve Challenge this month. I used to enter all the time but always fizzle out and never finish the whole month. Something always comes up and I can’t get all the cards done in time. We’ll see how I do this time:) They have such fun sketches I like trying them out.
For today’s card I used an image from the Verve Always on My Mind set and for the paper I used some of the 1st Edition Spring Feast, which I keep using on everything but I just love it. So springy! The butterfly is a die cut.
Have to tell you I love doing cards and things with butterflies. There’s so much you can do with them.
