Verve Stamps October 2017 Spotlight Hop



Welcome to Verve's October Mini Release Spotlight Hop! There's something new in the Verve shop today, and we're celebrating with a blog hop. Along the hop you'll see the Divas' first looks at the new Autumn Leaves stamp set and Falling Leaves die set. 


Verve is hosting a little giveaway, so why not join in the fun and hop along with us? Just leave a little shout out in the comments at each stop and you'll be in the prize drawing for the new products. Check out the Verve Blog today for a little more about the new goodies and all the prize info and deadlines.


Thanks for joining along with us in the hop!  If you got here from Christyne's blog you are in the right place on the hop!

Sit back and enjoy!  I have three cards to share with you today!
  
  

For my first card, I experimented with distressed oxide inks for the first time. I only own three, but I figure I had to start somewhere!    I blended candied apple and fossilized amber together for this card. 



Next, I stamped the outline leaves from the new Autumn Leaves stamp set using regular Ranger distressed inks and some versamark.  I love the way it turned out.  


I  die cut a piece of black card stock and stamped the sentiment using Verve's Stitched Pennant die set in versamark and heat set with a mixture of yellow and green embossing powders. 


 I finished my card with a few sequins from Harvest Gold sequin mix.




For my second card, I just had to copic color these adorable pumpkins included in the new Autumn Leaves stamp set. This set is full of so many fantastic images and sentiments for fall! 


I die cut and colored the pumpkins using the new Autumn Leaves stamp set and Falling Leaves die set.  I love this wonderful stitched rectangle frame.  A staple for any craft collection.  I added the sentiment and white embossed.  




I used foam tape to add my nested pumpkins at varying heights for added interest.  I finished with a few gold halfback pearls.  This is where I tell you I was not finished and actually added a lot of wink of stella to my pumpkins.  I mean these gourds shine! 




For my third card, I am rockin' it old school!  I broke out a few "vintage"  embossing folders!  These folders are almost 10 years old!  WOW!  Time flies!   I also used some rustic cream card stock I found in my stash.  I have not used that in forever, either.  





I stamped and die cut the leaves using the new Autumn Leaves stamp set and Falling Leaves die set.  I used foam blending circles to sponge diffferent colors onto the solid image before I stamped.  I love the soft subtle blend.  


I stamped the sentiment and clustered three leaves in the corner.  My focal panel is die cut using Cupcake Frames die set.




I rocked and rolled stamped the verticle strip using the smallest outlined leaf.  Again,  I finished my card with a few sequins from Harvest Gold sequin mix.  

Hey, did you know the Viva La Verve Sketch is back in action?  I used this sketch today on my "Thankful for You" card above.  Check it out because you can win a chance at a Verve prize if you play along there, too!





Thanks for sticking around til the end of my post!  You are not done yet, though.  There are prizes at stake!   Next on the hop is the wonderfully talented Teresa!

  2. All your cards are lovely. I like the way they progress from a little simpler to a bit more layering and then a lot more layers. The cream card stock is a good choice too. Could not even choose a favorite.
