Verve Spotlight Hop Day 3 ~ Chicks Rule and Flutterby Die


It's Day 3 of the Verve Spotlight Hops, and we're hopping with the new set Chick's Rule, along with a new Flutterby Die.


I started off by stamping the basket, and then I stamped and masked the flowers inside. Lastly I added this sweet little chick. Everything was colored with Copics, and I added some Gunmetal Stickles to the flower centers along with some glitter. This set comes with a whoppin' 21 images. I used the Flowers, the Chick, the large butterfly and the sentiment. The little butterfly is from the new Egg-stra Special set.

I also used the new Viva la Verve Sketch, provided by the sweet and talented Sankari. You can find it in the Verve Forum.


Now, don't forget, the Release Party is tonight from 9-11 pm Eastern.

Here's the hop list for today.

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

Now, 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 tonight!

Hope you've had fun with the hops these last 3 days, and have found some inspiration!! Hope to see you tonight, and have a super great weekend!!
