Anni-Verve-sary Sketches 4, 5 & 6

I've been cranking out the cards for Verve's Anni-Verve-Sary celebration going on over on Splitcoast. Here are 3 more...halfway there!!

AVS04: I do NOT like how this card turned out! I've been wanting to use this stamp though to try out my new Copic markers (I need some practice!!). The palm tree stamp is from Mindy's Zoo by Autumn Leaves that I picked up a few days ago at Ben Franklin. The "aloha" is from an old Fiskar's set (sorry I don't have the name). I used Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Close to Cocoa and Wild Wasabi CS and embossed the Close To Cocoa piece with my cuttlebug folder. The background piece of white is stamped in Close to Cocoa with the SU Linen background stamp. Ugh. Oh well. I might try again later with this sketch.

AVS05: I am LOVING this one!! I used some great Scenic Route paper I've been hoarding, which matches perfectly with the new SU Baja Breeze as well as Old Olive. The Red CS is actually the back side of the polka dot paper. The stars were stamped with Verve's Seeing Stars and then punched out with the 2 SU star punches. I added a large silver brad to the center and popped each one up on dimensionals. The sentiment is from Verve's Starlight Starbright.

AVS06: This is my favorite of the 3!! I used some more Scenic Route DP paper for the background on a Chocolate Chip base. The sentiment, from Verve's Asian Flair, was colored with Chocolate Chip and Ruby Red SU markers and stamped on Very Vanilla CS. I also used a cute little stamp from Filagree Fantasy. The layered circles were cut out with nestabilities. Last, I added a couple of pearls.

I'll have more to share with you tomorrow. Also, check back late tonight (6:00 Hawaii Time) for the Blog Candy winner!!!!
