A great big happy Friday to you!! Today is the final Verve new set spotlight! You are going to just LOVE the new sets and dies!! Don't worry, you don't have to wait long to see them! The release party is tonight (9 pm Eastern) and not only will the sets be revealed...but so will all the winners! Sure hope you can join us!
In the meantime, Let's Go to the HOP!!! All the cats and CHICKS can get their kicks at the hop! And today we're kicking off the first peeks at a set called Chicks Rule, a whimsical set for all the chicks in your life! The Divas are also debuting the Flutterby Die today, which coordinates with the butterfly from this fun set. And you guessed it... there's a prize hidden on one of today's hop spots, so leave a little shout-out in the comments as you hop about for a chance to win some new Vervey goodness! But you better hurry, the deadline for commenting is tonight at 6pm Mountain! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize details and to meet the three Chicklets debuting in this set.
Eeeek!!! Don't you just love that little chick!!?!? I decided to add him to a larger basket...filled with chocolate no less! I used a template I found online and my brand new cricut (woohooo!) to create this fun basket...complete with picket fence! I thought it was the perfect background for the fun and sweet chick!
I colored both the chick and basket (both from the new Chicks Rule set) using my copics, cut it out, then popped it up on the front of the basket using dimensional foam.
I embossed the butterfly (also included in the new Chicks Rule set) several times on vellum cardstock. I then used the NEW Flutterby Die (YAY!!) to quickly cut them out! I then added a rhinestone to the center of each of them.
Here's the little card I created to go with the Easter basket. I started with a 4" square card base and then added patterned paper and a leftover piece of picket fence (from an earlier basket I made). I wanted those sweet butterflies (from Chicks Rule) to take center stage! The sentiment was embossed and then cut out using the new Charming Banners die! SO fun!!
Ready to hop some more? :-) Here's the master hop list...
