Pink and Black Thinking Of You

I  made this pink and black - Thinking of you card for my friend in India. I used the Sketch #4 of Verve December VLV Sketches. This sketch is designed by Teresa - she has some awesome Verve creations on her blog.

The theme this time was Christmas Ornaments and Decor. I used this Pink and Black Ornament from Etsy as my inspiration.

I used the Verve Kind Words stamp set for this card. I have stamped the flower from this set in Ranger DI - Spun Sugar. It has that dreamy pink look. I stamped the sentiment over it using Memento Black Ink. The papers are all from my stash - they are a mix of KI memories and PTI.

Also for the very first time I also tried Dawn McVey's Ribbon tying tutorial and I have to say, I am very happy with how my bow turned out. Some MS Punched out Butterflies completed my card.

Here is the sketch,

Seize The Cupcake

I am back with my second card for the VERVE December Viva La Verve Challenges. This is my entry for the Sketch#2 by the talented Sankari Wegman. The theme this time was to take Inspiration from Christmas Ornaments and Home Decor. I was browsing Etsy for some Christmas Ornaments and found this awesome Purple Cupcake Ornament. So, I used the theme and color from this Ornament for my card.

The Seize the Cupcake set from VERVE Was perfect for this card. I cut out the sentiment using Nestabilities Petite Oval and then hand cut the cupcake and popped it up with a few foam dots. I have added some glitter on the cupcake as well.

Here is the Sketch,

Yellow Butterfly

I have not dropped off the face of the earth!!!! Just was on vacation and after I came back from vacation, my mojo took one :) We have finally reunited and I have a card to share with you all.

I did this card for The Play Date Cafe Challenge #60. It was to do a black and white card with a splash of Yellow. :)

The paper looks slight more Orange in color in my photo, but it is a beautiful shade of yellow - slightly darker than a lemony yellow.

I used the Verve Stamp sets - Happy Hello and Fluttering By and used the Viva La Verve December Sketch #3 for this card.
December Inspiration for Viva La Verve Sketches were Ornaments. I found this awesome Stained Glass Yellow Butterfly ornament in Etsy which was my inspiration for this card and it also happened to fit the PDCC Color Splash challenge.
