Harvest Blessings and more Verve Projects :)

Good Morning Everyone!!!

Hope your week has been going awesome! Our week has been so busy - it seems like every night I come home exhausted and my mojo is gone - and last night, I was in bed super early, but couldn't sleep (so I decided to come and play :) I just got this new yummy BG (Indian Summer) and couldn't wait to play :) There is just something about these colors that makes me want to crunch some leaves, wear a scarf and go for a walk in the woods, and have a cup of tea after coming home. I absolutely love love love fall - and these papers and this stamp that I used just make my heart so happy :) I used Julee's seriously mojo-licious sketch from this week (those scallops had me swooning I tell ya'!) and used one of my favorite sentiments from the new Verve release Harvest Blessings.

Card Details:
Paper: Basic Grey Indian Summer, cardstock from Bazzil basics
Ink: Memento Ink: Potter's clay and then over it with some Sakura gel pens
Accessories: Circle punch and archival pen from Creative Memories, bling from Martha and buttons from stash, corner rounder, leaf is from BG, dimensionals,

I love and can't get enough of these yummy verve-licious sets. Here are some creations that I posted at the Verve release party that I haven't had a chance to post here yet:

This is from the set: Star Struck. This could be one of my most fave sets - I just couldn't stop using it :) Here is one project - called: Star that's what you are:

Paper: Bo Bunny, carstock from stash run through the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug
Ink: Memento Ink: Potter's clay and then over it with some Sakura pink glaze pen
Accessories: Wave cutter and circle cutter from Creative Memories, liquid pearls, accordian ribbon from Taylored Expressions, dimensionals,

Here is another project from the same stamp set called: Be the Star, You Know You are:

Paper: BG Ambrosia set (I {heart} these papers!!)
Ink: Memento Ink: Potter's clay and then over it with some Sakura gel pens
Accessories: Spellbinders, circle cutter from Creative Memories, black glaze pen from Sakura, Big eyelet and cropadile to set, ribbon from stash, bling from Martha corner rounder and dimensionals
Sketch: Last week's sketch from Mojo #104

This one is from the Stamp Set: Swan Song - this is such an amazing set - so versatile and such beautiful sentiments. This card is called: You Put a Song in my Heart:

Card Details:
Paper: Bazzil Basics pink from K&Company
Ink: Taken with Teal from SU! and copics and prismas to color in
Accessories: Spellbinders, ribbon from stash, gel pen from Rangers, dimensionals, pocket punch from Fiskars and heart punch from Martha Stewart. corner rounder

Here is another card make with the same Swan song set -but as you can see it has a total different feeling - these are some of my new FAVE papers - seriously YUMMY!!!!

Card Details:
Paper: Kaiser Kraft Off shore Collection ( i totally {heart} these papers!!!)
Ink: Taken with Teal from SU! mixed with Stazon Black
Accessories: corner rounder, bling from K& Company, dimensionals

I love those colors in the papers above and so much fun with the Kaiser rub ons! LOVE it!!! Another thing that I have really been enjoying doing is to create a little notecard set that you can give as a gift - here is a 3 card noteset that I made using the Wishing You Well Stamp set - it is seriously one of my other fave sentiments sets from Verve - I LOVE Julee's fonts and the way that you can just add another sentiment and you get a whole other card makes it so easy to create a versatile gift set:

Card Details:
Paper: Cosmo Cricket Early Bird
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa and Potter's Clay
Accessories: Spellbinders, ribbon from Taylored Expressions, corner rounder, bling from Kaiser Craft, liquid pearls, Threading Punch from Fiskars.

Here is a picture of each card in the set individually:

Wishing You the Happiest of Days (isn't that just an awesome sentiment!?!)

Wishing You a Very Happy Birthday

Wishing You a Very Speedy Recovery
There are so many more wonderful sentiments in this awesome set: Wishing You! It covers every kind of card that you would want to make. All of these stamp sets are in the September Bundle that is on Sale!! from now till Weds. or as supplies last - so make sure to go check it out HERE!!!
