A Little Verve


I took a little time yesterday afternoon to play in my {very messy} craft room.  I definitely have CLEANING down there on my list for today!!

I wanted to join in the Verve Diva Dare for the month which was to use a common shape on your card.  I settled for a super CAS thank you note with hearts cut with Verve's From the Heart die set and a sentiment from the Celebration of Thanks set.  The notecard itself is cut with a Spellbinders Long Scalloped Rectangle Die that is PERFECT for making little 3x3 notecards.

My next card uses this week's Deconstructed Sketch and some more Verve goodies -- Winter Mittens and Purely Sentimental.

I pulled out a piece of my Kaisercraft Santa's List* paper to layer the background, then i stamped the mittens on white and colored / stamped them to look like they were paper pieced.  The little hearts are from the Hoppy Easter set and the cuffs are colored with copics.  I used an SU marker for the little dots.  I added some different ribbons*, a tag, some snowflake embossing and a few pearls* to finish it up!

* - All from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store! : )

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
