Autumn Release Sneak Peeks, Day 1 - Many Blessings


**Please scroll down to see my new bow tying tutorials, thanks!**

GOOOOOD MORNING!!!!!!!! Are you excited to see some Verve-y sneak peeks today? I sure am! You are going to be *THRILLED* with the releases this month, SO MANY new stamp sets! I was literally GIDDY when I opened up my stamps to start playing! I think I sniffed the stamps too long and got a little high...but that's OFF the record, bwahaha! But seriously, am I the only one who loves how new Verve stamps smell? LOL!! Good lord, I've lost my marbles.

Anyways, lets get on with the show! Today, the Diva's will be previewing 3 gorgeous stamp sets! Many Blessings (which I'm previewing), Happy Fall, and several Plain Janes!
Here's my card using Many Blessings:
I really can't tell you how much I adore Julee's flower stamps! Her designs are always so gorgeous and unique! I colored these stamps in with my Copics. The card base is Vintage Cream (by PTI) and the dp is Pixie-licious by Cosmo Cricket. Yep, still usin' it up, lol!
The ribbon is by PTI and I created that bow with my Bow Easy! Please see the post before this one for the tutorials!
These flowers are so fun to color! I added a button and some pearls for the centers, but there is also a very cute crosshatch design that comes on the image. I just wanted a little dimension!

Okay, well that's all I have for today! Come back tomorrow for another sneaky peek!
