March Verve Spotlight Hop



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




Now, let me show you my card.


I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch, and sweet and talented diva Jackie was the inspiration behind the tag. She made the cutest little tags with the set To the Moon. So, I thought I'd use the duck from the new set Lucky Ducky in a similar way. It's a sweet set with 2 little ducks with 3 fun sentiments to match. I colored the duck bill with Copics and added some Polar White Flower soft to him to give him that fluffy look. I also used the Sweet Scallop Tag Die (Verve), along with Twinkle, Twinkle Little Boy MME paper, PTI buttons and Ribbon, and some liquid pearls. That about sums is up for me.

Now here's the list of spotlight hoppers:


1. Charmaine 7. Teresa
2. Janelle 8. Amber
3. Laurie 9. Tosh
4. Jackie 10. Amy
5. Sankari 11. Andrea
6. Julee 12. Maureen

And hopping along with us this month is our March Guest Diva, Janelle Stollfus! Her gorgeous entry in our February 2011 Get Your Diva On challenge won her a spot as this month's Guest Diva, and I'm so excited for you to see what she's come up with for this release! You're definitely not going to want to miss a thing!

Oh, and did I mention there's a prize??? 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!

Hope to see you Friday night!!
Happy Stamping my friends!!
Tosh
