Verve Turned 2

Yesterday was Verve's 2 year anniversary release. They released some fabulous new sets, including a $9 set that is called Enjoy. It is a really cool set because it comes with blossoms and stems separate so you can do what you want... and the blossoms have a resemblance to butterflies, so you can use them for that too!

Any who, because of the release party happening over at SplitCoastStampers (SPS), the Verve team had a bunch of games happening, including some sketch challenges by Julee. Julee always offers the most fabulous sketch challenges. Here are a few of the cards I made to go with Julee's 5 challenges (and NO, I didn't win!):
Stamp: Because of You, Beautiful You
Accessories: Martha Stewart (MS) Butterfly Punch, MS Lace Punch, Cricut
Ink: Stampin' Up (SU) Real Red, SU YoYo Yellow, SU Only Orange
Stamps: Up Up & Away
Accessories: Ribbon, White Gel Pen, Cricut
Ink: SU Basic Black
Stamps: Beautiful You, Because Of You
Accessories: MS Scallop Dots Border Punch, blue pastel chalk, $1 store flower w/brad
Ink: SU Chocolate Chip, Versa Mark

Stamps: Because of You
Accessories: White gel Pen, Ribbon, Cricut, mini gems, dimensionals
Ink: SU Glorious Green, Su Brilliant Blue, SU Chocolate Chip

There was also a Sweet and Simple challenge to make a card with just ONE layer. This was a challenge issued by Charmaine, one of the Verve DT. This is what I came up with:
Stamps: Because of You, Beautiful Kindness
Accessories: White emboss powder, White gel Pen
Ink: VersaMark

I used Verve stamps for all the cards in this post.
