Some Verve-a-licous Fun!

Monday was a HAPPY mail day :)
Don't you just ♥ those?
My Verve order arrived in like a week....impressive eh? Canadian customs had a good day!
I really wanted to play along with the Mojo138 sketch and started to with this first card but ran out of room for some ribbons...lol
But I do like how it came out!
I started by stamping the flowers from Happy Days in Memento Black onto Choice Snow White cardstock and colouring with Copics. The swirl is stamped with White craft ink onto Kraft cardstock. I cut out the image and popped it up on dimensionals. The colour inspiration came from this sheet of WeRMemoryKeepers White Out DP that was in my scrap pile.
Stamps: Happy Days; Cardstock: Kraft, Temp Turq., Yellow Prism, White, WeRMemoryKeepers White Out DP; Inks: Memento Black, White Craft; Accessories: Copics, Mat Pack and Paper Piercer, Dimensionals
Ok so my second card DOES use the Mojo138 sketch...ha! This card uses the Relax set from Verve. I stamped the surf boards in Memento Black onto Choice Snow White and coloured with Copics. They were then cut out and popped up on dimensionals.
Stamps: Relax; Cardstock: White, Temp. Turq, WeRMemoryKeepers White Out DP; Inks: Memento Black; Accessories: Copics, Ribbon, White Candy Dots, Dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a GREAT Tuesday!
