Verve Autumn Release Spotlights: Day 2

Hi everyone!  Welcome to Day 2 of Verve's Autumn 2010 New Release Spotlights!!  Today we are spotlighting the amazing set, Autumn Splendor.  This is a set of 27 stamps, yes -27 stamps!!  There are 23 leaves images of varying sizes and shapes and 4 amazing sentiments.  You will LOVE this set!!

I made a trio of CAS cards.  Believe it or not, I DIDN'T use pattern paper, ribbon, OR did any coloring!  I love that there are outline and solid leaves in this set- and with just stamps, ink and paper you can create something really cute.  Wait... did I just say that?!?  lol!  To get the lighter splotchy shades of color on the second and third cards, I stamped off the leaf image first then stamped it in the outline.

This one is accented with some gold pearls and uses one of the 4 sentiments.
This one is accented with some Baker's Twine and a button and uses a sentiment from the mini set, Happy Fall which was spotlighted yesterday.
And this one is accented with some dark orange/brown rhinestones and uses another one of the 4 sentiments.
Okay, here's the link list of the Divas who are playing in today's spotlight hop. Check out our first looks at Autumn Splendor:
