Today I have the pleasure of peeking TWO new set for you...Star of Wonder and Blessed Christmas! Yep, you guessed it...it's Christmas time in the neigh-Verve-hood! LOL! Now on to the sneaky peeky!
Star of Wonder
This first card showcases one of the gorgeous sentiment fonts that is included in this month's release. I embossed it in Black Embossing Powder, then sponged around it to create a twilight landscape. I stamped one of the smaller stars in the set onto the bottom portion of the Old Olive panel to create my very own coordinating patterned paper. I wanted to keep the card pretty simple, so I went sparingly on the embellishments: Silver Brads, Old Olive Ribbon, and an Olive Button tied with Linen Thread.
Blessed ChristmasThis is one of my other favorite sets this month, so I was ecstatic to find out that the sneak peeks for both sets were going to be on the same day! Yet another extraordinary sentiment that was embossed in Black Embossing Powder, and a simple-yet-striking cross that was also embossed in black. I stamped off the cross twice to create the two shadowed crosses in the background, then watercolored the third to feature on this clean and simple card. The flower in the center was created by punching out So Saffron Cardstock using the Trio Flower Punch, then the edges were sponged before being attached to the cross. I added piercing around the focal panel and three Silver Brads to complete the card.
That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you all again tomorrow with another look at some of the new and delicious sets for the October Verve Release. Until then...
