Verve New Release Spotlight - Day 1


Are you ready to see some new Verve? We're counting down to our Friday, March 25th release with three days of Spotlight Hops! 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.

Today we're featuring the newest Plain Jane and mini set.  I have a card today using the mini set, Lucky Ducky.  This is an adorable little set with punny little sentiments.  :)  I used the two different size ducks for my card.  I die cut a piece of white cardstock using the Classy Label Die and stamped the ducks "peeking" from all sides. I colored them using Copic markers and then matted it with black cardstock.

The patterned paper is from the Stella Rose - Gertie Collection from My Mind's Eye.  I added a couple of score lines below the sentiment as well as a jewel brad. 

Did I mention there's a prize??? We love to celebrate at Verve, so there's a prize hidden 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 25th. Winners will be announced during our Release Party that night!  Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop!
