January 2012 Verve Spotlight Release ~ Day 3

It's Day 3 of Verve's Jan. Spotlight hop, and One lucky commenter from each day's hop will win the sets and dies featured that day, so be sure and leave a little love in the Divasphere! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize details and deadlines.

Today the divas are featuring the following: Hearts & Swirls Die, All Aflutter Plain Jane, All Aflutter Die Set, and I have 2 projects to share with you. The first being this sweet little card.




I used the little solid heart trio to make the three stripes on the card and little envelope. (the card is itty-bitty btw...it only measures 2.75" x 3.5". I used the All Aflutter die to cut out my Copic colored butterfly, and added the sentiment. I love the little "twitterpated" sentiment I added to the envelope. Isn't that cute!!


I also made a Top Hat Gift Box (Filled with Cinnamon gummy hearts....YUM!!), and used the "Love ya" sentiment, from the set Twitterpated, for a little sentiment tag. I diecut it using the A Cut Above die Charming Banner. It was stamped with Onyx Black Versafine ink directly onto some gray felt.

Here's a top view. For the tutorial on how to make this Top Hat Gift Box, scroll down to the next post.



Here's a close up of the decorations.


That's finally it from me today. :) Be sure to visit all the other divas' blogs!! They are all hugely talented and inspiring!!
