Viva La Verve!

Well, nothing like waiting until the last minute for me! I made all four cards for the Viva La Verve challenge in the last two night and uploaded them moments ago to SCS and the VLV thread one hour before the deadline. I used all Verve Visual stamps and the card stock and patterned paper varies.

This one is week 4. The patterned paper is Sprout from Memory Box. The solid cardstock is PTI and the white is Neenah.


This was week 3. I am very disappointed with my inadequate cupcake. But size doesn't matter, right? Yeah, right. Anyway, the dotted paper and solid cs is from PTI as is the card base. I used big chunky glitter on top of the cupcake which I popped up along with the tiny flowers. A little Stickles sparkled up the flowers. The bottom looked so plain, and since the twist was to make a birthday card I added the sentiment. Too bad it's crooked. I feel sorry for this card.
This one was for week 2. I love this Chatterbox pp! It's paired with some Bazzill Basic cardstock and a scrap of Basic Grey. The flowers were stamped, cut out, popped up, and Stickled.


And last, or rather first...this is my week 1 card. I think it might be my favorite too. This Basic Grey Urban Prairie paper is so pretty! I stamped and embossed the butterflies and cut them out. They are adhered only by their centers so I could fold up their wings. The twist was buttons, so I added several with floss tied through them.


Well there you have it! A whole month of challenges crammed into two days! I hope my family was able to fend for themselves while I was busy papercrafting away...
It's Friday folks...have a great weekend!
