Hi there! I didn't think I'd have any new fall stamp sets, but then Verve came up with their very first digital set and I just had to give it a try seeing as how I think it's so darn cute. Didn't hurt that it's a whole stamp set for only $4. Oops, is my cheap side showing? Well, who doesn't love a bargain? The set is called Coffee Please.
I know digis aren't for everyone and, true, when I have a little time to stamp it doesn't involve going to the computer first. I like to go into my room and simply start creating. However, when I think ahead it's fun to put some images together for coloring later. So that's what I did here. I goofed around in Photoshop Elements, moving and turning and resizing several images from the set. Photoshop's magic eraser made it easy to remove white space from the individual images so I could layer them.
I colored with Copics on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White and added just a little tab of burlap ribbon and a leafy swoosh for accent. The image panel is popped up. Simple and easy to mail.
Inside I used another of the four sentiments that come with the set. I think this one works perfectly well for a fall birthday.
Fall is a funny season. We've had some beautiful days and some rainy, blustery days. Every time I turn on the news I see another weather catastrophe or man made tragedy and my heart hurts for all those affected. Again, I count my blessings and try to keep all my little problems in perspective.
I'll be back to visit again this week. 'Tis the season for making lots of cards!
