Gettin' my Verve On!

I've been a long time fan of Verve stamps and finally took the plunge last month during their end of the year sale when a good number of their stamps were 50% off and I had a coupon code for another 10% off. What a great way to use up the last of my ebay money.

Here's a quick card I made at my crop yesterday using the Cosmo Cricket's DeLovely line and this Verve Psalm 37:4 Plain Jane biblical verse stamp.


Here's the Viva La Verve sketch I used for my inspiration:

I obviously took liberty with some of the proportions of the panels in my interpretation. I "think" that's ok. :) I had a lot of fun with this one because I finally got to use my Rolled Rose and Rolled Flower Die-matics from My Favorite Things.

I've loved this DeLovely paperline when I saw it a couple of months ago, so I was very glad to take this packet of mostly small scraps and few large pieces from my friend Gen to see what I could make out of it. I thought it was a creative way to use all those itty bitty scraps I had with the MFT Die-namics. :)


Here's a look at my pretty pleated silver grey ribbon that I got from MFT :)

Hopefully, I'll have a few more finished items to share this coming week. Do check back this coming Wednesday as I'm participating in a blog hop with my Design Divas group.

This is such a pretty card, so colorful and cute! Did you use the Cricut to cut the basic shapes or a punch?

@Jessica, no, no Cricut or punches. I used Spellbinders. I list all my supplies, tools, etc at the end of each blog post. Here are the SB's I used: SB Labels 3 & Mega 8.
