Color Challenge Cards

This card is for the Verve color challenge of pink, green and brown.  A happy coffee card to send to my daughter at college!!  Stamps are from the Verve set "Better with You".

The Flourishes color challenge was pink, green, blue and orange.  I used the flowers from Summer Blossoms and the sentiment from Autumn Blossoms.  I love those flower sets!!

Clean and Simple

I love Verve Scripture stamps!  They make such classy CAS cards!  For this card I simply stamped a piece of navy cs with a Cornish Heritage Farms Backgrounder stamp, Stamped my verse in navy and matted it on a piece of black cardstock.  I added some silver diamond shaped brads and it was finished!

Here's another clean and simple card.  This time I used a sentiment from Flourishes and made some banners with my First Place Award Ribbon Die-Namics and some retired SU dp.  This card is for the "Banner" challenge at the Flourishes blog.

I'm still using up the wonderful pack of retired SU dp that I won!  This time I paired it with a sweet focal image and sentiments from Verve's Floral Symphony! Be sure to stop by the Verve store for their amazing sale.  There are sets up to 50 % off!!

More Verve and Flourishes

Today's cards follow the Kraft / River Rock theme, I think!

First - A Flourishes card (Summer Blossoms again, and Flowers and Frames for the sentiment) .  This one uses "sprinkles"... Glitter in my case!

And today's CAS Verve card uses an old favorite - Hello Pumpkin.

Verve and Flourishes

I am playing along with the AnniVERVEsary Challenges celebrating Verve's 5th Anniversary and also the Flourishes 5th Birthday challenges... so I will have posts up this whole week! : )

Here's a quick little Christmas tag for Verve's Anything But a Card challenge... using Verve's Winter Mittens set and some retired SU dp.

And here's a "sweet" card for one of the Flourishes challenges, using the Sweetness of Friendship stamp and a flower swag from Summer Blossoms.  I love that set!  I stamped the swag with grey ink and colored with very light copics to get the faded effect.  DP is retired SU.

Card 60 - August Sketch for You to Try

Well, I don't think that I'll make my original goal of 100 cards in 100 days since I'm about 12 days off pace, but this is card 60 of my 100 nonetheless. : )  If you are wondering where cards 38 through 59 are, you can check my SCS gallery here.

I realized today that I hadn't done the August Sketch for you to Try yet, and looking through my sheets of digis that I printed out I came across this adorable snowman from DeeDee's Digis.  (It's retired now, but she is currently designing digis for Clear Dollar Stamps.  I love her style!)  Anyway, this was the perfect sentiment for me today.  I'm ready for snow and Christmas shopping and watching Muppet Christmas Carol. : )

Thanks for stopping by!!
