Verve New Release Spotlights Day 1: Plain Janes, Many Blessings, Happy Fall


Welcome Everyone to the Verve New Release Spotlight For Autumn 2010!!!  This month's Verve Stamps release is sure to knock your socks off - Julee always creates such gorgeous graphics and such beautiful sentiments! All of the new sets will be ready for purchase this Friday - so stay tuned for more release details!

Today - the Verve Divas are showing samples from the Plain Janes stamps (there are 4 this month!!!), a sweet and lovely stamp set called: Many Blessings and a beautiful happy stamp set called Happy Fall!  I totally fell in love with the three flowers in the Many Blessings stamp set - they are so much fun - they are cute, and little, and are layerable and are the perfect size for a small card or a larger one! 


VSWCMD4.gifFor this first card, I used this stamp set (Many Blessings and paired it up with the sun from the: Let it Shine Stamp set.) I used the gorgeous sketch for World Card Making Day:VSWCMD#4 - you can check out all the gorgeous sketches here and details to play along (one person who plays along with all 5 challenges will win the Autumn release!!! Holla!) 
I loved the circle element in this sketch that was open and floating about - and I decided to make my circle with liquid pearls instead :)  I paired the larger and medium flowers next to each other and then stamped twice, one time coloring and the second cutting and coloring over the first.  Its starting to get cold out here - so I had to make just one last summery kind of card :) I added a little glaze and a little twine to the button for detail.
Here is another picture of the side angle of the flowers - you can see their glazed yumminess and the different cut out layers of the flowers:



Card Ingredients: 
Paper: Echo Park papers and Prism
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and Bahama Blue
Stamps: Verve stamps: Many Blessings and  Let it Shine
Accessories: ribbon from stash, Adirondack liquid pearls, corner rounder, cuttlbug embossing plate, CM little butterfly punch, MS grass punch, sakura green embossing pen, bling from Want2Scrap, button from Bo Bunny Indian Summer collection, EK success punch and sponge dauber

As much as I love the bright sunny colors, I also wanted to go a little cooler and went with a palate of btowns and blue. I used one of the Plain Janes with the sentiment from Galatians: "Let me not become weary in doing good for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up." What a lovely sentiment - so inspiring - it was so much fun to color in these sweet flowers different shades of blue and then add a wee bit of bling to the middle:
Card Ingredients: 
Paper: MME and Prism
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Stamps: Verve stamps: Many Blessings and  Galatians 6:9 Plain Jane
Accessories: ribbon from stash, Adirondack liquid pearls, Spellbinders, dimensionals, MFT die, bling from Want2Scrap and copics

I know that the Verve Divas have some amazing samples to show you with these gorgeous stamp sets that Julee has designed!!! Hop along with me and check them out!!!

what bright and beautiful sneak peek, sankari! love the way you've combined two or more sets with each card, too...ingenious!

Nicole said...

Aside from Julee's samples (she IS the hostess with the mostest, of course), I was most looking forward to seeing your samples...and once again, you don't disappoint. I can't pinpoint what one thing or technique you do that always makes your cards transcend paper crafting and become real artwork, but I love it. Gorgeous, as always.
