Spotlighting Twitterpated

Hi friends!  It's the third day of our January New Release Spotlight Hops, and today the Divas are shining their sneaky little spotlights on some fun new love-themed products.  Hop along and leave some comments for the Divas, and you just might be a random winner of the stamps & dies we're previewing today... Twitterpated, the coordinating All Aflutter Die Set and Hearts & Swirls Frame Die and the All Aflutter plain jane!  Check out the Verve blog for all the prize details and deadlines.



When I first found out I was pregnant I was hoping for girls and drew the little girl in this set.  Then once we found out they were boys, I had to make a little boy, too, and Twitterpated was born.  They kind of remind me of the old Weebles I used to love to play with as a kid.  This set also includes a fun little frame, which coordinates with the new Hearts & Swirls Frame Die.  Also making a reappearance is a modified version of the small butterfly from Blue Skies, without the antennae.  The All Aflutter Plain Jane is the larger butterfly without antennae and both coordinate with the new All Aflutter Die Set.

Here on my card, I stamped the little guy from Twitterpated, then colored with Copic markers, popping up his little bow tie.  The frame is cut with the Hearts & Swirls Frame Die and then stamped in Riding Hood Red, adding one of my favorite new sentiments to the center.  Next I cut out the All Aflutter Die and stamped the small butterfly, coloring with Copics and highlighting with some Stardust Stickles.  The final touch was stamping the valentine sentiment on twill and I borrowed the pair of little hearts from the Wings of Love set to balance out the other side.

Okay, that's all from me today.  The release party is tonight from 9-11pm Eastern in our forum.  Hope to see you there!
