I took a little bit of time this past week to catch up on some Verve challenges! I got my BigKick in the mail the other day and had to die cut something. I have not had it for over 6 weeks and I was having issues! LOL! Sizzix replaced my other one! Thanks a bunch, Sizzix!

This card is for SCS sketch challenge(SC264). For the central panel I used the hexagon scalloped die cut turned a bit and layered with other die cut shapes.


I am using Verve's Thankful Accents set. I stamped the larger image in real rust and rocked and rolled in some smokey shadow. I have decided that I need to get the terracotta tile. I do use this burnt orange color more than I thought. Especially since I got this new Cosmo Cricket Girl Friday & Happily Everafter dp at Micheal's the other day. It was ON sale! Hello! Love that!

I sponged and did some faux stitching. I added my fou fou bow with the gold pearls! I love how it turned out. Sort of simple, yet a lot happening! LOL!

This card is for two challenges. First, it is for
SCS CAS50 challenge. We are to use teal and white with one other color. My other color is black. This card is also for last week's SCS Ways to Use It Challenge(WT253). To use bird(s) on our card. My dd needed a birthday card so it was time to ink up this birdie! Isn't he cute?

I am using
Verve Birthday Surprise and Bountiful Background sets. I stamped the dotted background in versamark and embossed with stardust embossing powder. It is VERY sparkly. I stamped my image and sentiment. I stamped the birdie again, quickly colored with copic and cut out and popped up. I added some fast and easy adhesive silver pearl detailing, and a black satin bow. Finished with one border punch accenting. Fast, easy, and fun once I figured out what I was going to do. This is very CAS for me!
