Verve Release Spotlight Hop ~ Egg-stra Special


Hi there!  Today marks day two of the Verve Release Spotlight Hop!  Today the Diva's are highlighting the new ADORABLE set, Egg-stra Special.  This is a perfect Easter set but also SO CUTE for just everyday! 


I decided to go round for my card!  Shaped cards are so much fun, yet I rarely make them!!  I stamped the adorable chick in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored her with Copics.  She was cut out and popped up for dimension.  I thought she needed a little something more, so I covered the shell in Ranger Crackle Accents (you can see better in the pic below).  The banner is actually a piece of patterned paper....just cut out the banner pattern and draped it across the top.  Three stamped flowers from Egg-stra Special and some Divine Twine finish the banner.  The sentiment comes from the final set we're peeking tomorrow.  Some machine stitching and liquid pears finish the card!


A close up of the Crackle Accents on the eggshell.....


 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!
