Verve Spotlight Hop Day 3 ~ To the Moon and Emery PJ

I can't believe it's already the last day of Verve Spotlights!! It's gone by so fast, and the divas have once again shown the versatility of Verve stamps!! I've loved hopping along seeing everything they've created, and I hope you have too. For today's card, I'm featuring the Emery Plain Jane, and the set To the Moon. I love this sweet little elephant, and the other wonderful little animals and sentiments Julee has included in this set.

I started by stamping the frame included in the set and die~cutting it with Labels 12 Nestabilities and square dies. The frame is popped up a bit with dimensional tape. I also added some of the stars included in this set.

For sweet little Emery, I Paper Toled, and Paper Pieced him, as well as adding some Pumice Stone (Ranger Distress Ink) distressing to him. He's a whopping 4 layers, and I cut along the lines of his trunk to make it more dimensional. I love this little guy! The kites were also paper pieced and popped up with dimensional tape. Lastly, I added a little fence line with a Martha Stewart border punch.

Tomorrow, January 7, Verve is releasing all these new sets and dies! And because a new release is something to celebrate, we’ve hidden a prize on one of the participating blogs! Just leave a little comment love as you hop around to be entered into a drawing to win that day’s featured stamps! The deadline for comment entries is 6PM Mountain Friday, January 7. Winners will be announced at our release party on Friday night - so leave a little love and win big this Friday!
