March Viva La Verve Week 4

Hi folks,

Remember yesterday when I said I got crafty? Well, here's EIGHT more cards....yep, EIGHT that I made during my marathon crafting day.

They all use the Week 4 Viva La Verve Sketch. For half of them I kept the original orientation, for the other half I flipped the sketch. Now I have a bunch more cards for my stash and a bunch of Easter cards ready for this weekend!

card details:

  • finished size: 4.25 x 5.5 inches, white card stock base, CTMH Buttercup and Indian Corn Blue for the mats
  • patterned paper: CTMH Sweet Home (I am REALLY REALLY working on reducing my stash of papers.....REALLY. These must be at least a couple of years old as they are retired.)
  • stamps: Verve "Eggstra Special". "Easter Joy", "Joyful Blooms", "Birthday Surprise", "Chicks Rule", "Wishful Elegance", "Doodled Occasions"
  • CTMH Buttercup and Indian Corn Blue buttons from my stash
  • butcher's twine
challenges for these cards:
thanks for stopping by!

I love that you created all of these cards from one sketch and just a few simple embellishments. They look fabulous. Thanks for joining our spring challenge at use it tuesday this week and hope to see you again!

I totally agree with Tammy above, great way to maximize your stash by using one sketch, and a handful of coordinating embellies. Thanks for linking up with us at Use It Tuesday.
