Project Parade - Day 7!



OMGosh!! Aren't you loving all of these amazing Spring and Easter ideas the Verve Divas have shared so far??!! Wow!

I'm so in the mood to create Easter goodies right now! The fresh colors, pretty flowers, fun new Verve stamps, and oh, ....CHOCOLATE bunnies!! Oh yeah!!



When I saw this hilarious (but true :-) sentiment (in the new Chocolate Bunnies set), I knew I needed to go shopping for the *perfect* chocolate bunny! To give away as a gift, of course...



I kept my card simple and fairly small (4 1/2" x 4 1/2") so that the sentiment could take center stage! I dressed my card up with some pretty patterned paper, swirls, Dew Drops, and a velvet flower.


I wanted to spruce up the inside of the card as well. I stamped the bunny (from the Chocolate Bunnies set) onto white c.s., colored it in with my Copics, and then used my Circle Nestabilities to cut out just the face...kind of like a portrait! :-)



So do you want some new Verve??? Play along with us during our Project Parade for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the Verve Stamps store. All you have to do is create an egg-stra special spring project and link it up with the Mr. Linky form HERE. Entries will close at 8PM Mountain on Saturday, April 4! Verve Stamps are not required, but we do LOVE to see 'em if you got 'em!

And to put a little spring in your step, we'll be picking five random commenters over the course of the parade who will win their choice of any Verve Stamps set. You never know which Diva will be drawing, so if you see a project you like, be sure to leave the girls some love! :) Good luck and thanks for visiting!!

Recipe - Stamps: Chocolate Bunnies Paper: White c.s., White Linen Vellum c.s. (PTI), Patterned paper ( Melissa Frances) Ink: Versamark, Tempting Turquoise (Stampin' Up!), London Fog Memento Ink Accessories: Clear detail e.p., Oval and Circle Nestabilities, Doodle Parts and Tag Trio Spellbinder dies, Dew Drops, Ribbon, Velvet flower (Maya Road), Copic markers
