Verve New Release Spotlight - Day 3



It's Day 3 of the New Release Spotlights and today the Divas are showing you Bountiful Harvest.  As you can tell, I've been all about paper piecing this release!  :)  I'm just loving how these sets work beautifully paper pieced.  For this first card I used one of the World Card Making Day/Release Week Sketches.  ( Deadline for entries:  11:59pm Mountain on Friday, October 8.)  I also used some old, favorite paper that I've loved dusting off. . .the Indian Summer Fall Stack from Die Cut With a View.   I had to move my sentiment circle because it fit better above the focal panel, and I thought the whole "moon" looked better above the pumpkins. 

I stamped the pumpkins on the different patterned papers, cut them out and attached them to the image I stamped on the woodgrain patterned paper.  I added a little faux stitching for some interest.

The second card uses the "pumpkin turkey" in the set.    He's so cute.  Again, here I used the Indian Summer Fall Stack for my creation.  I stamped the image and colored with Copic markers.  Then I die cut the image with the Plain Circle Nestabilities and mounted it on a die cut piece using the Big Scallop Circle Nestabilities. 



The sentiment was stamped and then die cut with the Labels 10 Nestabilities.  I did a little airbrushing along the edges of the circle before taking it out of the die.  The bottom of the polka dotted panel was punched with an EK Success border punch. 


Everything you've been seeing these last few days will be available for purchase later TODAY (2pm Eastern)!  In the meantime, be sure to hop around and see what the Divas have to show you today!  And leave some comments along the way for a chance to win some Verve!  Check out the Verve Blog for details! 

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Hopping!
