Look Out, World!

Welcome to Day Three of Verve's New Release Spotlights! Today, we're featuring a baby-themed set, To the Moon, and two Plain Janes, Emery and Smallest Things. And because a new release is something to celebrate, we've hidden a prize on one of the participating blogs each day! Just leave a little comment love as you hop around, and you'll be entered into a drawing to win that day's featured stamps! Deadline for comment entries is 6 pm MT tomorrow (Friday, January 7). Winners will be announced during our release party tomorrow night (which begins at 9 pm EST).




My project features images from the unbelievably cute To The Moon set. You are going to flip when you see these adorable animals and fabulous sentiments! As soon as I saw this set, I knew I'd be making a window frame for one of the sweet animals to be hanging out of. I love the "Look out world" sentiment, too!

The elephant, colored with Copics, has a popped up head for dimension.


 The papers are all from My Mind's Eye's Fine & Dandy True Blue 6x6 pad. I embellished with some different types of stitching (blanket, zigzag, straight), a scallop border, and my newest love affair - baker's twine.
