The Fusion #6 provided just the right inspiration for my birthday card today...love the fun layout and fun pink, peach, and yellow colors!  Simon Says Stamp: Things with Wings is up and running, too!


The doodle frame from All Occasion was stamped onto some patterned paper, then die-cut with the Occasion Frame die...the sentiment was stamped also on patterned paper, trimmed and popped up from the die-cut frame.  



The second card features the new Verve set called Teachers Count with the coordinating Apples Die Set!  This week was Teacher Appreciation Week, so this card went to one of Ben's amazing teachers.



The Monday Mojo Sketch 292 was the layout inspiration...fabulous sketch!



The last card for today showcases the Verve Promoted Plain Jane...and the Occasions Label Die.  I split the die cut apart and just used the edges as a little detail behind the scallop tag die cut...those fun scallops add so much detail:)


The Studio Calico Sunday Sketch was the layout inspiration for this sweet grandparents card!


I had a total blast this week as a Verve Guest Diva for the May Release!  I hope you had as much fun as I did seeing all of the amazing creations from the Verve Release Divas..they are all incredible designers that I have been blessed to work alongside with.  A big shout-out goes to Julee for the chance to play along with your fabulous stamps, dies and ribbons!



Thanks for stopping by the stage!
