Hi, it's Amy today - welcome to Day 12 of the Egg-stra Special Spring Project Parade. Before I show my project, I get to announce the newest random winner! This winner comes from the comments left on Michelle's post yesterday. Without further ado .... Mary, come on down, you've just won any Verve Stamps set of your choice (up to a $24 value)!
What a tasty (looking) combo!! So fun!
Congratulations, Mary! To claim your prize, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your set choice and shipping address.
Now, back to the parade. I've been having such a fun time checking the blog each day to see the newest Vervalicious creation. Such amazing stuff - hope you've been getting some great ideas!
For my project, I decided to get a little crafty in my kitchen as well as my stamp room. Take a look:
I thought these hatching chick candy molds by Wilton would be perfect paired up with the "Just Hatched" sentiment from the Chocolate Bunnies set. I followed the directions on the mold using white and colored candy melts, then added lollipop sticks while the candy was still melted. After the candy set up, I tied the raffia bow and button accent to the stick.
The pail came from the Target $1 spot a while back. (It came in a pack of three, and was labeled as a wedding favor item). First, I gave the pail a little skirt using a combination of scalloped green polka-dot paper, some yellow and brown paper and pink pom-pom trim. The pot is filled with a small piece of florist foam topped with some paper Easter grass. When the pail was finished, I stuck the lollipop stick into the florist foam. It was a little wobbly, so to stabilize it, I gently pulled the stick and foam back out, stuck a large glue dot on the end of the stick, then put the whole thing back in the pail. Here's a closer look:
The packaging is a clear gusseted cellophane bag. In the bottom is a piece of thick chipboard covered with matching green polka-dot paper. The pail is attached to the base with a large glue dot. For the topper, I layered the green polka dot paper onto white, folded in half and secured to the cello bag using two silver brads. I stamped the eggs in brown ink, colored with Copics, and trimmed them out. The white egg was cut with an oval Nestability, then stamped and cut with a freehand zigzag at the top. Here's a close-up of the topper:
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 or card and link it up with the Mr. Linky form HERE. Entries will close at 8pm Mountain on Saturday, April 4!

I do believe we'll be picking one more random commenter during the parade. Just like today's winner, she (or he) will win her 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 some love! :) Good luck!
