Verve Sneak Peek ~ Autumn Splendor



Hi there!  It's the second day of sneak peeks from Verve and today the participating Diva's are sneaking peeks of an AWESOME new set called Autumn Splendor.  If you love leaves and all of the possibilities they hold, paired with fantastic sentiments that we come to know and love from Verve, then this set is for you!

I decided to use my leaves as little trees.  I used all three sizes of this particular leaf, stamped the outline in Dark Chocolate and stamped the body of the leaf in Warm Green Fluid Chalk ink.  I love how they didn't stamp perfectly (user error, not stamp error).  It kind of gives the trees some depth, don't you think?   I used the Mojo Monday sketch from last week (loved it so much, this is my second time using it!).  The sentiment is from a set peeked yesterday called Happy Fall.  The papers are Cosmo Cricket Nutmeg.  Some ribbon, machine stitching and chocolate twine finish it off!

For a complete list of all of the Diva's participating today, just head on over to the Verve Blog!

I'll be back tomorrow with one last peek before the stamps are released!  Don't forget to leave comments on each blog as there will be a random winner!

I love it! that layout is fabulous!!! This is a card that is just perfect. And after that, the first thing I thought was how awesome it was that the leaf images looked so dimensional. So, your error (as you said) was definitely an asset not a distraction. Great job!
