Verve Anni-Verve-sary Projects

This past Friday, Verve celebrated its 2nd anniversary with a fantastic release and giveaways. Here are a couple of cards I posted in the SCS Verve Forum during the release party. Julee's generosity just keeps going too. The sentiment (To Risk), that I used on this card, is free with an order of $35 or more at Verve.

For this first one, I used Budding Blossoms, Enjoy, and the Plain Jane To Risk. Do you see the little gate in the picket fence?

Stamps: Enjoy, Budding Blossoms, To Risk
Paper: Chatterbox, Bazzil, Neenah Solar White, Intense Orange and Kraft (Prismatics)
Ink: Lettuce and Bottle (Adirondack Dye Ink), Vintage Sepia and Black Onyx (Versafine), Antique Linen (Ranger Distress)
Accessories: Buttons (Making Memories), Labels I Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Fence Border Punch (Martha Stewart), Glitter, Kraft Ribbon (SU!), Scallop Border Punch (SU!), Copics

For this next one, I used images from the Express Yourself, and Bountiful Backgrounds (which I clear embossed the purse image over the stamped bg images.) This was also one of the Verve sketches for the week. (found HERE)

Stamps: Express Yourself, Bountiful Backgrounds
Paper: Tawny (Prismatics)
Ink: Versamark, Currant (Adirondack Dye), Vintage Photo (Ranger Distress)
Accessories: Circle Scallops and Circle (Nestabilities), Clear Embossing Powder, Mini Rhinestone Flowers (Zva Creative), Rhinestones (Kaisercraft), Chocolate Candy Dots (Pebbles, Inc.), Ornare piercing Template, Piercing Tool, Sewing Machine

Finally, here's a little box I made with the Bountiful Backgrounds. I was inspired by a wallet I bought as a gift and needed a gift box for it. Below is a pic of the two together.

Stamps: Bountiful Backgrounds
Paper: Blush Red Dark, Black, Tawny Medium and Light (Prismatics)
Ink: Currant (Adirondack Dye Ink), Vintage Photo (Ranger Distress Ink)
Accessories: Circle and Star Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Rhinestones (Kaisercraft), Border Punch (Martha Stewart), Sewing Machine, Scor-Pal

Thanks for stopping by.
Hope your week is off to a super start!
Happy Stamping!!
