...Verve-day Wednesday

Here are a couple of other cards that I made using two of the October Verve release sets, Frosty Flakes and Christmas In The Air. Instead of using patterned papers, I created my own using the stamps in the sets and solid cardstock to show how versatile and wonderful they are! Enjoy!

That's it for me today! Sorry for the short post, but it is busy, busy, busy at the Kerin household! I have another hectic day ahead, but I wanted to make sure you had some eye candy to tie you over until tomorrow. I will see you back here then with a special project that I have been working on. Until then...
Supplies for the "Winter Wonderland" Card:
Stamps: Christmas in the Air (Verve)
Papers: Real Red, Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Watercolor
Inks: Real Red, Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze
Accessories: sewing machine, clear embossing powder, heat gun, aquapainter, ribbon, sponge dauber, dimensionals, distressing tool, stickles

Supplies for the "Happy Holidays" Card:
Stamps: Frosty Flakes (Verve)
Papers: Not Quite Navy, Certainly Celery, Whisper White
Inks: Not Quite Navy, Certainly Celery
Accessories: mat pack, paper piercer, dimensionals, sponge dauber, brads, button, ribbon, linen thread
