Verve New Release Spotlight: Day 3 Harvest Blessings


Hi Everyone,

 Its Release Day over at Verve Stamps!!! Woo-hoo! Today (October 8th) at 12 noon Mountain Standard Time, Julee will be releasing 4 New Stamp sets and 4 Plain Jane stamps! Woot! 


Today, the Verve Divas are previewing the gorgeous stamp set: Bountiful Harvest and Julee has created such adorable and beautiful pumpkins and sweet sentiments in this gorgeous set! The little trio of pumpkins is so adorable - I stamped them and colored them and created a little scene for them using the tree die from Tim Holtz and some background embossing. I stamped the sentiment and added it to the corner with some nesties and finished it off with a bit of ruffled ribbon and a red button from Bo Bunny.
Card Ingredients:
Paper: Prism Cardstock (oraange, yellow, and shimmery black paper)
Stamps:Bountiful Harvest by Verve Stamps
Ink: Tuxedo Black from Memento Ink
Accessories: Spellbinders, button from Bo Bunny, gold twine from stash, Tim Holtz tree die, MS grass punch, Cuttlebug folder, glaze, copics and ribbon from stash

I wanted to make another card with some of the single images of the sweet pumpkins in the set - the hard thing was to choose one of the pumpkins - they are all so cute! I stamped the pumpkin onto some Basic Grey DP and sponged the edges and covered it with glaze. 



I layered it onto a sheet of copper cut with the nesties added some sweet leaves from the Abundant Blessings stamp set and added them to the corners of the Spellbinders pennant. The sentiment was layered onto a copper panel as well and finished with a bit of pearl trim and some yummy satin ribbon from May Arts.


Card Ingredients:
Paper: Scraps of DP and Prism Papaya cardstock
Stamps: Bountiful Harvest by Verve Stamps
Ink: Rich Cocoa and Tuxedo Black from Memento Ink
Accessories: Spellbinders, EK success punch, bling, ribbon from May Arts, glaze, copper squares, copics, Adirondack Liquid pearls, Circle punch 1 3/4 punch and dimensionals.
