September Spotlight Hops - Day 3

Hi Verve fans!  We're back with day 3 of our release week previews and today we're shining our spotlights on a new set called Birthday Bots.

Since we LOVE to share our Verve, we've got a giveaway every day this week!  Just hop around to the blogs on today's hop and tell us what you think in the comments at each stop and you'll be entered in a drawing to win today's featured stamps!  Woohoo!

My little guys were on my mind when I pulled out Birthday Bots, so I decided to get a jump on making their 2 year birthday cards.  Here I paired the set with yesterday's spotlighted set, Geared Up, which I used for the number background and the 2 cog embellie thingy.  {grin}  I stamped one of the little bots from Birthday Bots twice onto cream cardstock, then colored each one in blue and green (one of the only ways we could tell them apart for almost the whole first year of their lives!) and accented their little belt buckles with sequins from the Pastel Sequin Mix.  I added the award banner die down the side in soft sky, then accented with some thin grosgrain ribbon.  I made a mat for the bot images to look similar to a polaroid, then embossed the Happy Birthday sentiment from Birthday Bots in white, then colored over with a grey copic to make it not so stark.

ll right.. on with the hop.  I'm the first stop with another card using this fun set!

As I mentioned yesterday, I think robots are awesome!  Could be the geeky chic in me coming out, but I had so much fun illustrating these little bot!  They're perfect for baby, birthday or just because cards and super fun to color or paper piece, whichever suits your style. They make me think of my little men each and every time I peek at the set, and creating with them was one of the funnest times I've had stamping in quite a while. I hope you love it just as much as I do.

We're also adding some sequins to the mix this release.  Our Metal Mix includes approximately 50 gear shape embellishments in each of two sizes, perfect for accenting your bot cards.  Our Pastel Sequin Mix  includes approximately 50 small and 50 medium sequins in 5 pastel colors.. pink, green, turquoise, yellow and pearl.
