PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR MY FARM FRESH FRIDAY POST
It’s new release time at Verve, and we’re topping off our Thankful Hearts Blog Party with a blog hop featuring three new sets that just released...all focused on thankfulness. If you’ve been hopping, and have arrived from Amy Sheffer's blog, then you’re right where you should be. If you’ve just happened by, then you’ll want to hop on over to Poetic Artistry to start from the beginning! To make this hop even sweeter, we’ve got a special treat hidden along the way for one lucky commenter. So if you see something that makes you smile, be sure to comment at each blog for a chance to win our entire release!
What can I say about these new sets except...WOW! Each and every month Julee pulls out all the stops, and amazes us with her beautiful and elegant designs. This month, I was shocked and excited to see large circular flourish in the "Thankful Accents" set. Along with this gorgeous focal image, there are several sentiments and and smaller accent images that coordinate with each other and the other sets being released this month. I stamped and embossed the flourish, then nestled a sentiment in the center of it. I used one of the accents in this wonderful set to add a little something to the blank space in the two right-hand corners. I wanted a dramatic color combination, so I reached for my BasicGray Ambrosia paper pad. I decided on Basic Gray, Basic Black, Whisper White, and Pumpkin Pie. The only embellishments I used were Brads, some Gray Grosgrain Ribbon, and little dots of Gunmetal Stickles at the tips of the corner accents. Isn't this set just FANTASTIC?!?
Thanks for hopping by! Next up is the lovely and talented, Ms. Laurie Schmidlin. Enjoy your little adventure through our creative land of Verve! Don't forget to head over to the Verve Store to get your November sets tonight after the blog hop...you will NOT regret it! I'll see you back here tomorrow for another installment of Crazy 4 Challenges! Until then...
