Verve New Release Spotlight: Day 2: Autumn Splendor



Hi Everyone,

I have been loving all the new Verve stamps that Julee has created for the October Release - and today's stamp set that the Verve Divas will be previewing is one of my favorite - it is called Autumn Splendor and its definitely a must have! The leaves in this stamp set are so awesome and there is every kind of leaf  both filled and not filled and large and small and is perfect for making a quick card! 

I really wanted to make a wreath out of all those leaves (it was so therapeutic to cut out the leaves :) I paper pieced some of the leaves with some fallish DP and then I colored some of them in. I made a circle base with my circle nesties and then curled and placed the leaves over the circle. The bottom of the wreath was finished off with a little bow from May Arts. I popped up the wreath with some dimensionals:

Here is a close up of the leaves - aren't these leaves the cutest? And there are a TON more leaves in this stamp set!!! 

I had a hard time choosing which sentiment - because they are all so sweet - but I had to go with Autumn Splendor because that is really what Autumn is - splenderifious!

I remember walking down the street back out East in the Autumn and just loving the colors of fall as colors changed from summer green to gorgeous reds, yellows and purples - so so lovely! There was one street that was lined with maples and so anytime you would walk down the street and looked up - there was an archway of golden light - so magical! I love this sentiment - it just reminds me of my childhood :)


Tomorrow, Julee will be releasing 4 new stamp sets and 4 new Plain Janes at noon Mountain Time!!! And guess what? There is a hidden prize on one of the participating blogs each day, so leave a little comment love as you hop around and you will be entered into a drawing to win that day's featured stamps! Deadline for comment entries is 10PM Mountain time on Friday. AND one lucky someone who plays all five sketch challenges will win the ENTIRE release this month!!! Check out all the details here!
And check out all the beautiful Autumn Splendor created by the Verve Divas today using this beautiful stamp set:

Rich, rich fall colors, and a great card! Stamping IS great therapy, but probably not cheaper in the long run than a psychiatrist's visit, esp. as now I have to have these stamps! ;P
