Verve Release Bountiful Harvest ~ Day 3


It's the final day of peeks, and I have to say that this set is my favorite!! And that's saying a lot because I adore every image released. Seriously!! And, guess what!! They'll all be available for sail at 12 Noon Mountain time!! You don't have to wait till the evening to shop!! AWESOME!! Not only that, but each comment you leave on a diva's post, gives you chance to win one of these new sets!! (only 1 comment allowed per post though)

I have two cards to share with you again today. For the first, I used the fabulous trio of pumpkins!! They're colored with Copics, and I paper toled the front two to give some dimension.

The yummy paper is Steampunk Debutante by Graphic 45, and all the edges were ink distressed with Vintage Photo Ranger Distress Ink. I used a variety of Spellbinders dies too: Circle, Lacey Circle, Petite Oval and Labels 2 Nestabilities, Fleur de Lis Borderabilities.


For my second card, I used this release's sketch VSWCMD4. You have until 11:59 pm Mountain Time today to get your entries in. Check HERE for all the details.

The sentiment is one of the new Plain Janes: Ecclesiastes 3:11. Isn't it beautiful? I used My Mind's Eye dp (Haunted...I know, terrible name to use with such a beautiful sentiment, but I LOVE the elegance of the paper. :) The circle was made with felt, and the leaves were made with the Leaves and Branches Sizzix die. The flower is Prima.

That's it for today. I hope to have one more to share with you tomorrow with another Plain Jane. It's not made yet though...*grin*...just in my head.
