Viva la Verve August Week 1


Hello my stamping friends!! Are you ready for the weekend? I know I am. Today, though, I have a card, to share with you, that I made using Amber's sketch for the first Viva la Verve sketch for August. I used a sentiment from, the recently released Verve set, Words Cannot Express.

I stamped the sentiment with Vintage Sepia Versafine onto Fine Linen cs by Papertrey Ink, and diecut it with the Spellbinders' Tags 5 die. I then ink distressed the inside, while it was still in the die, with Pumice Stone Ranger Distress Ink.

I ink distressed the Kaisercraft wood heart with Pumice Stone ink as well, and added a trio of Kaisercraft rhinesones to the corner. The rhinestone studded tulle is from Prima, the seam binding ribbon is from MemrieMare, the Icy White Metallic String is from Pizzaz a Plenty, and the button is from PTI. Lastly, the paper is Conservatory by 7 gypsies.



That's it for today's card. I have many more to share with you next week, since it's SOAP week for Waltzingmouse, and there are Dare To Get Dirty challenges over on Splitcoast Stampers. (That's why I've been MIA for the last week...I've had a lot to get done for the first week of August.)

Be sure to stop by the Verve Forum to see the samples the other Divas have made, and to learn more about the Viva la Verve challenges.

Have a super weekend!!
Happy Stamping!!

Such a shabby chic beauty. Love the heart and pretty tulle details. Verve has wonderful sentiment sets. I think I need to invest in some. I don't own any Verve sets yet. :)
