Verve New Release Spotlight: Bountiful Harvest

It's Day Three of Verve's New Release Spotlights. What do you think of what you've seen so far this week? Julee always amazes me with her classy designs! Today, we're showing another Autumn set called Bountiful Harvest. I think there was a collective squeal when the Divas first saw the pumpkin images in this set! I'm betting you'll be just as tickled over them :)

I'm always calling one or the other of my children "pumpkin," so I created today's spotlight card in honor of all "little pumpkins" out there :) Their mamas know who they are!


Among the nineteen stamps in this set is a gorgeous pumpkin trio image. I love that each of those three pumpkins in the trio also comes as its own separate image - so much more versatility! I stamped the largest pumpkin onto ivory card stock and colored with Copic markers. The grass is done with Prismacolor pencils. Patterned papers are from Cosmo Cricket's Matilda collection, and the woodgrain embossing folder that I used on the dark brown background panel is one of Tim Holtz's Texture Fades.

Check out our first looks at Bountiful Harvest:
