Anni-VERVE-sary 2012 Challenges Day 2
 
3 Attachment(s)
Hello Verve fans and welcome to Day 2 of our Anni-VERVE-sary challenges! We’re celebrating 5 wonderful years of Verve and are so excited to share our new release with you! To kick the party off, every day this week we’ll post a fun new challenge for you.

To continue the celebrations, my sweet Diva Sistah, Andrea, and I are hosting an Anniversary Card Challenge. This Diva knows all about celebrating a 5th Anniversary because the DH and I celebrated our 5th this year :) The modern gift for your 5th is "Silverware," and the Traditional gift is "Wood." So that's your challenge! Make an anniversary card with wood or silver elements or BOTH! (hint: wood can be a wood button, wood grain patterned paper, wood grain embossing, etc., or balsa wood like my heart).

Be sure to take a close look at our samples, because you just might see some super sneaky peeks of what’s releasing later this month! You’ll have until 5PM Eastern on Friday, August 24 to complete the challenge and upload your creations with the provided keywords. We’ll draw a random winner from each challenge gallery to win a special prize package of new stamps and dies! Winners will be announced at our release party that night (you don’t need to be present to win).

But that’s not all! Play along in all 5 of the challenges and then link your creations up in the Release Champions thread for a chance to win our entire new release (a $300+ value)! To be eligible, creations must be new (posted 8/13 or later) and you must make 5 total projects (no combining of challenges, please). Verve stamps are not required but we sure do love to see ‘em!!!

When loading to SCS, use the KEYWORD: VSAVS12B

Thanks to Teresa for a stunning sample as always and to my co host, Andrea, for her uber elegant card :) And that's mine at the end with a sentiment close to my heart :)We cannot wait to see what you create, remember to have fun!

as fun as it is to start seeing the new stamps...it's so hard to WAIT until we can buy them! We're hoping these challenges will keep you busy until then :)

LOVE seeing all the peeks this week and all the gorgeous projects!

Here's my card for today's challenge.

Thanks for the creative fun. :-)

Shadow's Mom 08-14-2012 11:12 AM

Although I'm loving all the lacy goodness in the samples, I needed a masculine card for our anniversary later this month. Here's my card for this challenge:

If you live to be 100...

Oooh I am in LURRRVVVEEEE with those new fonts! I need a new love set, and i'm a thinkin' this one will be coming to live with me soon! Wood and Silver...hmmm...thinking about what I can do...off to create!

T. Joy 08-14-2012 04:49 PM

CAN YOU BELIEVE IT???? I just uploaded my card - CAS and so pretty with it's silver brads... and then I realized that this was supposed to be an anniversary card and this is really, ummm, not...unless perhaps their marriage is in trouble???

I'll link it here anyway, cuz I like how it turned out, and I'll have to try again tomorrow!! SIGH!! :)

Jennipher, I hope you'll join us...check out my inspiration for this challenge :)

JadeOnline 08-14-2012 08:53 PM

Ugh!!!! I misread the challenge! I made a card with "wood" and "silver", but didn't use an anniversary theme.

Sigh...back to the craft desk. :(

Oooh!! Is that yours??? I got a Pandora bracelet for our 25th anniversary this year and I *love* it!! I went online and picked out all sorts of the beads and charms I would like. Even with choosing mostly inexpensive ones (with a gold one thrown in here and there, of course!) I think the full bracelet of my dreams is worth over $1,000.00. My poor husband!! :mrgreen:

Bwahahaha!!! I have an idea to fix it! I have the perfect sentiment to add to the card to make it an anniversary card. It's from a different company, but sacrifices must be made... ;)

yes, this was my 5th anniversary gift from him this year :) I was really impressed as I had not hinted at all about it :) There's lots of room on mine to grow (and spend!) LOL

It gets the creative juices flowing! Can't wait to see part deux!

whiterockmama 08-15-2012 07:34 AM

Phew, managed to get all the elements of this sketch in - it was a doozie! Lots and lots of silver for you - albeit a horrible picture of the card due to the setting sun :(

Happy Anniversary

T. Joy 08-15-2012 09:19 AM

Never Mind!! :)

steubner 08-15-2012 10:57 AM

So fun...I'm just catching up. I see some new dies...and new stamps....can't wait!! :)

Glad to know I have company!! But, I'm not sure I can fix my card as easily as you can. Are trees an appropriate anniversary image?

Drat. And I used the last of my silver paper, and that cool silver embellishment...and I don't have ANY wood!!

I'm still in denial mode over this one. :(

Of course trees are an anniversary image! Let's see if I can make a sentiment for you...

Like trees in the forest, standing strong,
Our love will endure - forever long.

:mrgreen:

T. Joy 08-15-2012 05:10 PM

OK, I know I'm stretching it, but at least I'm creative - right Moe??? ; ) Here's my ... ahem... altered ... anniversary card. :D You might have to think awhile to find my logic!!:mrgreen:
