Charming Oval Spotlight Day 2

Hi friends!  It's Day 2 of our New Release Spotlights, and time to shine our sneaky Verve spotlight on some more new stamps and dies!  Follow the hop list at the bottom of this post to see our first looks at Egg-stra Special and the Charming Oval and Charming Banner die setsAnd because we love to celebrate, there's a prize hidden on one of today's hop spots, so leave a little shout-out in the comments as you hop about for a chance to win some new Vervey goodness!  You can check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize details, deadlines and a little more chitchat about today's featured stamps and dies.

You can find the master hop list at the bottom of this post, but for now I'll turn your attention to the debut of the Egg-Stra Special set and Charming Oval Die Set

I went for an elegant looking card showcasing the new Charming Oval Die Set.  It's a set of three dies that layer together.  I used the smallest die as an Easter egg and cut three of them from some Hello Luscious paper.  I remember as a child  being mesmerized by all the colorful and ornate glass eggs in store windows at Easter time, so that was my inspiration for this card.  I added a cream charming oval mat and bermuda bay, purely pomegranate and wild wasabi outer mats.  Then I dressed things up with two sizes of shiny gold pearls from Pizzazz Aplenty.

That little loopy border is is one of my faves and is made using the Apron border from TCP.  I found this fun Sizzix embossing folder on my last trip to the craft store and had to bring it home with me.  For the sentiment panel, I embossed the Easter blessings sentiment and the Vintage Oval Frame stamp in detail gold.  I colored in the outer line of the vintage oval with a Copic marker, then matted on a Vintage Oval die cut from Wild Wasabi.

Well, that wraps it up for me today.  I posted my CASE Study challenge card a bit earlier, which has another peek at the new dies and an early peek of the set we'll be previewing tomorrow.  To see it, just scroll down to the next post or click here.  Tune in tomorrow for our final Spotlight Hop before the release party on Friday night!  Hope you have a fabulous time hopping today!  See ya soon!
