Chloe's Casa Spotlight Day 3

Hola peeps!  Today is the final day of Spotlight Hops! Tonight we'll be revealing the new sets and dies from 9-11pm Eastern at our Release Party!  Drop on by... there will definitely be something to chirp about!


In the meantime, Let's Go to the HOP!!!  All the cats and CHICKS can get their kicks at the hop!  And today we're kicking off the first peeks at a set called Chicks Rule, a whimsical set for all the chicks in your life!  The Divas are also debuting the Flutterby Die today, which coordinates with the butterfly from this fun set.  And you guessed it... 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!  But you better hurry, the deadline for commenting is tonight at 6pm Mountain!  Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize details and to meet the three Chicklets debuting in this set.

You can find the master hop list at the bottom of this post, but for now I'll turn your attention to my project for today... Chloe's Casa featuring Chicks Rule,  the Charming Oval Die Set and  the Sweet Birdhouse Template Set & Cutting Files from Kelleigh Ratzlaff Designs.  Isn't this little birdhouse template just the cutest???

I cut the birdhouse shapes from Quite Contrary designer paper using my Cricut Expression and SCAL software, then assembled.  Although there's also a PDF included in Kelleigh's template set, so you could totally do this "old school" with scissors. {wink} The template cuts a peephole out, but I wanted a scallop edge to match the roof, so I simply punched a 1-3/8" circle punch out of espresso cardstock, then punched around the negative of the shape with the scallop circle punch and glued my resulting frame around the peephole.

Chloe from Chicks Rule is the perfect sized chick to hang out in this little Casa, so I colored her with prismacolor pencils and gamsol, then tucked her inside.  The flower in her hair matches the solo flower in the set, so I punched it out with one of the punches from the SU! mini punch pack, then colored with Copics and popped up for a little dimension.  It looked so cute, I decided to giver her a little garden of flowers at the base of her little casa.

The sentiment is one of my favorite's from the Chicks Rule set, and is stamped on the largest die from the Charming Oval Die Set.  To give it a quick little mat (and a little pouch to tuck my stick pin), I simply cut two more of the large charming oval from early espresso and staggered them above and below the cream layer.  That triple pearl stick pin is a scrumptious little treat from Pizzazz Aplenty and I finished off with some aqua shabby wrinkled ribbon.

So that wraps it up for me today!  I hope to see y'all tonight at the party!  Happy hopping!!!
