March Viva La Verve Week 3

Hi folks,

I finally gave myself permission to have a full day of crafting in my craft room and was able to make a bunch of cards.

Up first were these six cards I made using the sketch for Week 3 of the March Viva La Verve Challenges over on Splitcoaststampers - I made four Easter cards and two birthday cards.

I've been trying REALLY hard lately to use of my stash of older 12x12 papers from CTMH. I figured 6 cards using these long-retired Topstitch papers would be a good way to make some progress on that stash-busting goal. Pink and blue for Easter cards or spring birthday cards - sounds like a plan to me!

card details:

  • finished size: 4.25 x 5.5 inches, white card stock base, CTMH Baby Pink & Heavenly Blue mats. The brown card stock is from Bazzill.
  • patterned papers: CTMH Topstitch
  • stamps: Verve "Birthday Surprise", "Joyful Blooms", "Hoppy Easter", "Egg-stra Special", "Chicks Rule", "Bunny Shake". Images were coloured with Copic Markers (E57, E41, R21, B00, B01)
  • CTMH Baby Pink, Heavenly Blue, Cocoa buttons from my stash
  • butcher twine
  • Stampin' Up Scalloped Circle Punch, 1 3/8 inch Circle Punch
