...October Verve Sneak Peeks : Day Four

It's Friday, and Day Four of the Verve October Sneak are you in the Christmas mood yet? You should be! But just in case you aren't, I am showcasing TWO more sets that will be available to purchase tonight! Ready to take a look?
O Christmas Tree
For this first peek, I used two of the sentiments and the small poinsettia to create my very own coordinating patterned paper on the Garden Green Cardstock panel. The sentiments and bloom were stamped in Chocolate Chip Ink in a random pattern using a Stamp-a-ma-jig and Image Sheet. The edges were pierced with a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer, then they were sponged in Chocolate Chip Ink with a Sponge Dauber. A piece of Chocolate Felt Ribbon was added, then the panel was attached to the Kraft card base using Dimensionals.
I stamped the tree three times on the Very Vanilla focal panel using the Masking Technique, then sponged the edges of that as well. I created the sentiment panel by stamping the sentiment on chocolate on vanilla cardstock, and cutting it out with my Big Shot and Classic Circle Nesties. A couple of Brown Brads were added above the focal panel to complete the card.
Frosty Flakes
This is one of my favorite cards for the week. This is the smallest set to be released this month, and contains three various-sized snowflakes and a sentiment. The sentiment was stamped in Always Artichoke Ink in the lower right-hand corner of the Kraft card base, and all three of the snowflakes were stamped on the Baja Breeze focal panel. I stamped and embossed all three flakes in white, then went back and added more of the smallest in baja ink to fill in some of the holes. The focal panel was matted with Always Artichoke Cardstock, then the top edge was pierced with a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer. A piece of Baja Breeze Striped Ribbon was added, then I created my own "icicles" to use at the bottom of the panel as a border punch substitute. So what do you think?
That's it for me today! Don't forget that the Divas are sharing more sneak peeks at the Verve Blog. You will not want to miss the release of the 7 new sets, so join me and the other Divas at the Release Party tonight at 9:00 p.m. EST!
