Verve Release Projects

I thought I'd share a few of my projects for the Verve Release for you, starting with my card for MoJo Monday #77. This was such a fun sketch to work with and I decided to bust out some of my neglected SU paper...
Stamps: Floral Symphony (Verve)
Paper: Real Red & Bashful Blue textured CS, Whisper White, Wild Wasabi CS, retired DSP (SU!)
Ink: Real Red, Wild Wasabi (SU!)
Accessories: Swiss Dots cuttlebug embossing folder; circle nestabilities; Word Window punch & ribbon (SU!); 3-D adhesive

This next card was actually the first card I made when I received my new stamps in the mail a few weeks ago - I literally opened them up, sat down and had this card done in about 15 minutes. These stamps almost just stamp themselves!! (and it helped that I already had all that Scenic Route paper out on my desk!!).
Stamps: Everlasting Life (Verve)
Paper: Kraft, Basic Black CS (SU!); Pure Luxury white CS (GinaK); North Shore DP (Scenic Route)
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko); Versamark
Accessories: Copic Sketch Markers; Corner Rounder; Baja Breeze ribbon (SU!); Detail White embossing powder.

And finally, this little guy. I struggled with coloring him as I found out my Copics don't work so well on that textured American Crafts CS. And after I finished, I decided I should have colored his bowtie, but too late. It's done. I really like the colors and those eggs are super fun to paper piece!!
Stamps: Chocolate Bunnies (Verve)
Paper: Chocolate Chip, So Saffron CS, So Saffron DSP (SU!); White textured CS (American Crafts)
Ink: Momento Rich Cocoa (Tsukineko)
Accessories: Copics; Scallop border punch, oval punch, ribbon (SU!); Oval Nestabilities

That's it for today. I have several more Verve projects to share with you later this week, so be sure to check back!! And stop by the other divas' blogs (links are in the sidebar) and see all of their fantastic creations as well!!

Love your 'Easter blessings' card. Can't put my finger on it but I love it, especially the different layers with the one rounded corner. I just love it.

Thanks for sharing and keep on inspiring.
