Verses on Friday- Today

Hello, everyone!  It's has been awhile since I've posted.  I've been on hiatus, still recouping the back.  Feeling much better!  And happy to be back sharing with you again.

Have you been to the Verses Rubber Stamps website lately?  They recently had a Verses Challenge and have some other neat things in store for the future.  If your not getting the Verses emails, you should go sign up for them- don't want to miss anything!

Now, for my Verses card for this week:

As usual, this card didn't end up like I pictured it in my mind.  Do you ever do that?  I started it thinking it would be a Birthday Card, but the more I looked at it, the more I like it for a Mother's Day Card.  Hmmmmm?

The Verses Stamps is  BB0506-E "Today".  The other stamp I used was from Hero Arts- "Woman with Pearls".  I also used Webster's Pages Designer Paper.  Have to say I'm totally in love with Webster's Pages paper!

As always, check below if you would like to see a list of my supplies.

Thanks for stopping in for a look today!  Hope you have a wonderful weekend and hope to see you back here again next week.

Verses Challenge #1

Surprise!  It's Tuesday and I'm posting a card for Verses.  Lots of things to celebrate today.  First of all, it's Valentine's Day- so happy Valentine's Day to you all!  Second, today is the release of the details for the 1st Verses Rubber Stamps Card Challenge.  Gotta say, I've been so excited about this since I was first given the information about the Challenge.  I can't wait to see what you all submit.  And I get to help select the winner.  How cool is that (well, for me anyway! HAHA)

So, in keeping with the Challenge details, I made a card for you all.  The Challenge is to have a Verses Rubber Stamp as the main focus and use Black and White with a "splash" of Red.
This is Verses Rubber Stamp RR0723 "Love and Magic".  It is stamped in Momento Tuxedo Black ink and I stamped it twice, cut our the LOVE and pop-dotted them on top of the original stamp.  I used a lot of Spellbinders dies on this card- the black card stock, sentiment and Designer Paper are all cut out with Spellbinders.

Hope you enjoyed today's card.  I sure enjoyed making it!

OK, now get out there and make some cards with Verses Stamps for the Challenge.  If you haven't received the details of the Challenge and want to play along, make sure you go to Verses Rubber Stamps, sign up for their emails and join us in the FUN!

Have a Great Day!

Verses- Happiness and Love

It's Friday!  Thanks for stopping in today for my Verses on Friday project.

I can hardly believe that next week is Valentine's Day, can you?  So, thought I would post a Valentine's card I made using Verses Rubber Stamp RR0410 "Happiness and Love".

CAS (clean and simple) is not my usual style, but I was looking for a card that I could use for my Husband.  So, I kept it simple!
The Verses stamp is  RR0410 "Happiness and Love".  I stamped it using Ranger Distress Ink "Festive Berries".  The hearts were cut out from K&Company's Lovely patterned paper and I edged them in "Festive Berries" as well.  The cardstock was some old stuff that I've had sitting around forever- so long I don't even remember the maker or where I got it! LOL

Quick and simple card today!  BTW- did you see this post from yesterday?  Verses is going to start Challenges and the first one is next Tuesday.  I would love to see you join along with us!  I'm really excited about the new Challenges.  Make sure you stop by here on Tuesday.  I will be putting up a card a made for it!

Have a great weekend!

Verses- Warmth and Happiness

Hello, all!  Wow- remember me?!  It's been a little while since I have posted.  I've been dealing with some back problems for awhile and sitting at my crafting table really irritated it.  But with the help of some fantastic Physical Therapists, I'm beginning to feel like my old self again!  And how excited was I to get back to crafting!

Thought I would share today a card I made with Verses Rubber Stamp MC0629-E  "Warmth & Happiness".
The patterned paper I used is from the Basic Grey Picadilly pack (another Basic Grey line I'm obsessed with!)  And the house stamp is one I've had for awhile- Hero Arts "House with Plant".  I colored the house with PrismaColor pencils and used some Ranger Stickles Clear Rock Candy on the windows and some Liquid Pearls Opal on the plant (both are a little hard to see in this picture).

Hope you enjoyed my Verses card for the week.  It sure feels good to be back!

Have a great weekend!
Patterned Paper:  Basic Grey Picadilly

Verses on Friday- A Fallen Leaf

Happy Friday! and thanks for stopping in to look at my Verses project today.  My project today was inspired by Fall, which is my favorite season.  I love watching the leaves change color each year.  This year, the leaves have been gorgeous in my area.  I've been taking lots of walks this past month thanks to the new puppy in our house :)  Her favorite thing to do when we walk is to catch leaves!  So, needless to say, I've been noticing the leaves even more than I usually do!

While out walking the other day, I thought of this stamp from Verses Rubber Stamps:
This Verses Stamp is MC0348 "A Fallen Leaf".  I stamped the sentiment with Ranger Distress Inks Fired Brick and Gathered Twig (I inked it with the Gathered Twig first, tapped it off lightly and then inked it with Fired Brick).  The leaf and Designer Paper are from K&Company's Tim Coffey Fall pad.   A really simple card!

Hope you have a great Friday and don't forget it's Veteran's Day.  Not just today, but everyday, I'm so thankful for those men and women who have served our Country in the past and continue to do so.  I'm so grateful to you!

Verses on Friday- Let Us Be Grateful

Oh, my!  I'm so happy to be back with you today for another Verses on Friday post!  I've had some technical difficulties over the past month which is why I haven't posted for awhile.  I hope everything is fixed now and ready to go.

Fall has made an appearance where I live.  And for some reason, I love to do papercrafting in the Fall more than anytime of the year.  I wonder why?  Is there a favorite time of year you like to scrap and/or stamp in more than another?

Well, today's Verses on Friday is definitely inspired by the Autumn weather that I am experiencing.  I found several things that I'm loving right now and put them all together to bring you this:
I used one of the new Verses Rubber Stamps  QQ0852- "Let us be Grateful".  And when I saw the this stamp from Northwoods Rubber Stamps, I fell in love with it right away.  It's a fun stamp to color with Copics and Watercolors, but I decided to go a little different for this card.  Instead, I used K&Company Designer Paper from the Tim Coffey Fall paper pack.  I stamped the Northwoods Stamp multiple times on the Designer Paper and paper pieced the image.  I also used some pop-dots to make it 3-dimensional.

Hope you enjoyed this week's card!

Thanks for stopping by,
