Welcome to Verve's October Release Retrospective Blog Hop!  Today the Verve Divas and Guest Divas are back with another dose of inspiration using the brand new release! All of our new products are available to order in the Verve shop and on sale through the end of October! Plus, we've got a sweet hop prize in store!





For my card I started with some smooth white card stock and ranger distress inks.  I brushed on hues of blues and purples.  I spritz with water to remove some color then added some white and black splatters.  I stamped the leafy sprig from Autumn Blessing stamp set with black hybrid ink and colored with copic markers.  I die cut it using the Autumn Thanks die set. 




For my sentiment, I die cut the word thanks from the Autumn Thanks die set three times in black and once in gold.  I layered the images for added dimension.  I added some loose threading and finished my card with some Verve Shine Bright Sequin Mix.

  1. Beautiful. Like your idea of die cutting the word 'thanks multiple times to make it really stand out more. The loose threading and a bit of bling really makes for a very lovely card
