Autumn Splendor

Happy Thursday!  We're moving on to the second day of the New Release Spotlight Hops for Verve.  You're invited to hop around the Diva-sphere (teehee) for previews of our soon-to-be-released stamps.  While you're at it, be sure to leave a few comments along the way for a chance to win the stamps we're previewing!  Check out the official list of today's hops at the bottom of this post or check the Verve blog for all the details.

Today, the Verve spotlight is shining on a new 6x8" set titled Autumn Splendor that will be released on Friday.  This set has a myriad of leafy options, a few sweet sentiments and a happy little autumn quote.  I wanted to be able to create my own autumn backgrounds and designer paper, so I made sure there were lots of options in the set, and even two-step stamping features to easily add a splash of color.


Here's that color combo I just can't seem to get enough of.    I just love the look of peach parfait with cajun craze, and for this card I added a little crumb cake in to the mix - those names are totally making me hungry!  The three sizes of one of the outline leaves from Autumn Splendor were stamped with Early Espresso in kind of a cascading pattern.  Next I added some color by stamping again with the coordinating solid images.  To give my leaves a little added depth, I lightly outlined them all with a light sand color Copic.  The sentiment from Autumn Splendor is stamped in Cajun Craze and cut and matted with Petite Oval Nestabilities.  I added a fun little shabby wrinkled ribbon bow and set it off with a mulberry open rose from Pizzazz Aplenty in the center.  The crumb cake background is letterpressed (ink up the inner bottom side of the embossing folder with an ink pad, then add paper and run through your machine upside down) with the Swirls #2 Sizzix embossing folder and some Crumb Cake ink.  The layout for this card is the VSWCMD2 sketch from our WCMD/ Release Week Challenges going on this week.  Play along for a chance to win some Verve!

Thanks for stopping by!  Here's the list of diva-licious hops for today.  Happy hopping!

  4. I am totally going to try this colour combo. I love it so much more than the Cajun Craze, More Mustard combo I have been using. And I love how you added a shadow effect around the leaves, it really makes them pop.

  47. Loved the card. I would love to learn more about the technique you used to make this card. Another technique I would like to learn more about is embossing using a Spellbinder die without cutting.

    I've recently found Verve stamps. Now I can not get enough!
