Sneak Preview--Bunny Duet and Chocolate Bunnies

Hi Verve friends! Here we are on Day 3 of Sneak Peeks for Verve's newest additions to your stamp collections. Today Jackie, Michelle and I are featuring two sets, Bunny Duet and Chocolate Bunnies. Hop this way and take a look...

Here's my (Susan's) Sneak Peek:
Here's the new Bunny Duet single stamp (it comes by itself) which is so fun! There are so many possibilities for this one, but when I first looked at it, it made me chuckle! Who ME, chuckle? (Yep, at just about everything!) It made me think about those old timey pictures where the folks are just standing there in their best duds...(kind of Victorian?), but so serious! So I thought these bunnies needed a little vintage feel to them. There's lots of sponging and distressing going on here with a little bling added to the mix (she had to dress up for her big picture day, don't you know!). The Prima flowers and bunny bows have Shimmerz painted onto them to dress them up even more. These bunnies are all decked out for ya'll and their big "premiere"!

Jackie Pedro's Peek:
When I saw this new set, Bunny Duet, I couldn't wait to get it inky!! I have always loved the adorable bunnies that Julee has come out with, and this adorable little couple is no exception. Don't they look like they are all dressed in their Sunday's finest? The sentiment is from another new soon to be released set called Circular Sayings. I used the "Thanks" because each year my hubby's Aunt and Uncle host a huge Easter Brunch and egg hunt for the entire family and this card will be going to them for stuffing our faces with fantastic food and providing my kids a wonderful Easter tradition!!!

Michelle's Chocolate Bunnies Peek:
Can I just say I LOVE these cute little bunnies!?! This one is from the new set coming called Chocolate Bunnies. Julee hit it out of the park again. I don't have any Easter stamps and about fell off my chair when I saw these sets. Sooo cute and versitile. I wanted to make a fun bold bright Easter card and when I saw the new Citrus matstack by DCWV I couldn't get it in my shopping basket fast enough. I started out by chosing a brightly patterned piece for the background. The bunny is colored with Prismacolor pencils and all of the Easter eggs are pieced with some more subtle patterns. Everything was painted over with Angel Wings Shimmerz and I used a blue glitter Sakura pen for the swirls. I used some of the SU! SAB 5/8" Saffron grosgrain ribbon and threaded one of my beaded corsage pins through it. The yellow pearls on the pin were colored yellow by a copic marker, the rest are beads from my collection.

Like what you see? Well, this Verve-alicious set could be coming home to you! Just leave us a comment with the answer to the following question (see below) by Sunday March 8 at Noon (Mountain Time) and you could be the lucky winner! Winners will be announced at our release party on Sunday night (it starts at 8 PM ET in the Verve Forum on SCS—so mark your calendar NOW)! And for even more chances to win Verve goodies, be sure to participate in this week’s Mojo Monday sketch contest on the Mojo Monday Blog. Thanks for stopping by!

  24. I'm not a chocolate lover - I know, I'm wierd - so I don't really have a favorite Easter candy. If I do enjoy some chocolate, I go for the "high end" stuff - Swiss, Belgium etc.
