Day 3- Verve release

Welcome back to Day 4 of our October Spotlight Hops!  The Verve Divas and special guests are back for another day of spotlighting our new release! Everything previewed this week is available to order in the Verve shop.

Today we're sharing our first projects featuring the Autumn Blessings stamp set and coordinating Autumn Thanks Die Set.

Okay- I have two cards (again) for you today and honestly haven't even touched all the images in this set (as you will soon see!)



My first card (well, actually both) use this beautiful leaf wreath!! Wreaths and fall-- "match made in heaven"!! This card is pretty straight forward- stamped two of the wreaths with fall ink colors and die cut with the coordinating dies. These were layered on an embossed and patterned paper panel. Don't you love that "thanks" die- it was die cut three times, layered, and popped up with micro pop dots for added dimension. A Verve seam binding bow finishes it off.


My second card is a bit different... but,  a little fun all the same. I stamped the same leaf wreath several times and then used a water brush to "mix" the color in the center of each wreath. Two of the wreaths were die cut with the coordinating dies and popped up off-center over the main panel. Added a few sequins to the centers, a sentiment from the set stamped onto a Verve Banner from the Banner Bundle die set.


"Kay... the good news :-)
