Shabby Chic Bot - Day 3 Hop

Hi friends!  It's Day 3 of release week for Verve and the Divas are back sharing their first looks at another new set in today's blog hop. This is the start of the hop, so grab a treat and settle in for a fresh batch of Verve inspiration!  And be sure to head on over to the Verve Blog for the full set reveal and another card from me!


As usual, there's a prize too!  Just leave a little comment as you hop through each blog in today's list and you'll be entered in a drawing to win today's featured products...  Birthday Bots and the Metal Mix and Pastel Sequin Collection.

I was totally excited to make a sweet little baby boy card when I sat down to stamp this card, but my eye settled on the Bramble Rose collection of papers, and I totally wanted my baby bot to have shabby chic pajamas!  LOL  So I paper pieced her outfit and stocking cap, then added just a bit of coloring to her cheeks and nose and added some glossy glaze to her eyes and buttons to give a bit of dimension to them.  The welcome baby sentiment is embossed onto cream and then I colored with Copic markers.  There's that Award Banner Trim Die again, cut from blushing bride, sponged a bit, then accented with some of the Metal Mix sequins and a teeny pink rhinestone in each center.  Also used one for the pouf on her cap.  Finished with a little seam binding from the Spring Fling collection.

Alrighty, everything you see today will be available for purchase in the Verve store on Friday, September 27.  Next up on the hop is...Teresa!
