Verve New Release Spotlight Hop ~ Lucky Ducky


Hi there!!  Today marks the first of three days for Release Spotlight Hops from Verve!!  This month's release is all about spring whimsy, lucky ducks and hip chicks and we're starting things off with a look at our brand new mini set and plain jane.  If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck... well, then, it's probably a Lucky Ducky, which is today's featured set!  All the new stamps and dies you see over the next three days will be available following our ReLeAsE pArTy this Friday night from 9-11pm Eastern.


Lucky Ducky is a set of five stamps consisting of two different ducky images and three awesome sentiments!  A must have little set, IMO!

I paired one of the ducky images with the Frame from To The Moon to make my card.  All of the papers are from the Jillibean Soup Dutch Mustard Soup 6x6 pad.  I can't get enough of these papers!  The image was framed with Square and Labels 16 Nestabilities.  The sentiment was cut out with the largest (it's a set of three) NEW Charming Oval A Cut Above Dies.   I punched some holes in the ends with a small hole punch and threaded my much loved Divine Twine through to adhere it to the card.  The border at the bottom was done with the Dainty Doily Die from MFT.  Some machine stitching and an adhesive pearl flourish finish the card.


 We love to celebrate here at Verve, so we've hidden a prize along the hop today! One lucky commenter on one of the Diva Hop Spots below will receive today's featured stamps, (Lucky Ducky and the Hope Perches Plain Jane) plus the Charming Oval Die Set we'll be previewing tomorrow! Deadline for commenting is 6PM Mountain on Friday, March 25. Winners will be announced during our ReLeAsE pArTy that night!
