Verve New Release Spotlight - Autumn Splendor
It's Day 2 of the Verve Stamps New Release Spotlights and today several of the Divas are sharing projects with the fabulous new Autumn Splendor set. This is my new favorite leaf-y set and I'm sure it will soon be yours too! It's a set of 27 (yes 27!!) stamps including both solid and outline leaves (perfect for 2-step stamping!), beautiful Verve-style sentiments - and let me tell ya, you better grab this one quick because I have a feeling it's going to sell out FAST!!
When I saw all those fabulous different leaf stamps I knew I wanted to create a card with a fall wreath on the front and this is pretty much what I was imagining...
I used a few of the outline stamps (but not anywhere near all of them!) on some fall colored cardstock and then cut them all out with my hobby knife, attached them randomly in a circle on some Kraft CS that I had stitched to a dark brown mat, then adhered the whole thing to a Kraft CS base. I added the "Autumn Greetings" sentiment popped up on a few dimensionals as a final touch.
I can see re-creating this wreath in the spring in pastel colors and adding in some tiny little flowers - wouldn't that be fun!? Or using more of the "sprig-like" leaves in all shades of green and gluing on some little red berries for a holiday wreath this winter. I can't wait to try some of these ideas!!
Be sure to stop by the other Divas' blogs listed below for more peeks at this and a few of the other new sets (Be sure to leave comments along the way for a chance to win some Verve goodies!!):
