December Diva Dare ~ Day 10

 Favorite Things - December Diva Dare

Hello Verve friends and welcome to December's Diva Dare!  It's Andrea here with you today sharing this month's dare is entitled Favorite Things.  With the busyness of the Christmas Season upon us and the New Year quickly approaching, it's nice to take a breather and look back at what we've accomplished. 

So this month, we are daring you to share your favorite Verve creation(s) for this year OR create a new one with one of your favorite Verve products.  This is not a hard one for me, as almost all of my cards contain Verve products. Let's see if I can narrow down my choices...

The above card features the Better Together set, paired with some muted shabby accents:



One of my favorite quotes, from one of my very favorite sets, More Than Love:


Here's a card using an older set, Joy for the Journey:


 Another one with Better Together:


Here's a sympathy card using Inspire Hope:


And finally, a card a little out of my realm of card making...this one featuring the Moments Remembered set:

December Diva Dare - Day 9

Hi Verve fans!  Laurie here, bringing you today's Diva Dare post!

 Favorite Things - December Diva Dare

This month we are daring you to share your favorite Verve creations for this year OR create a new one with one of your FAVORITE Verve products!
I love these kinds of challenges!  It's fun to look back over the past year's creations!  I think we all should do it more often!  :-)


Where There is Love by Laurie Schmidlin
I've said it before, but I can't help but say it again...  I LOVE Verve sentiments!  The fonts are stunning, as are the quotes and sentiments that she includes in her sets!  I especially love the font in this set, More Than Love!  And just look at that distressed heart!  Love, love, love it!  I used the Sweet Scallop Tag die to create my tag.  I added some seam binding (from the Stormy Skies Collection) and several flowers for embellishment.

December Diva Dare - Day 8

Hi there! Chaitali here today as your Diva Dare hostess!

 Favorite Things - December Diva Dare

This month we are daring you to share your favorite Verve creations for this year OR create a new one with one of your FAVORITE Verve products!

I am so happy Julee gave me the opportunity to join Verve as an illustrator this year. I've loved the chance to make my designs into stamps and even more, I loved all the wonderful creations everyone shared with the stamps!

So for my episode of this month's Diva Dare I decided to showcase some cards that were created with my sets because they really are my favorite Verve creations! None of these are made by me but I found them when lurking on the Verve Pinterest boards and I was so impressed by them! Also honored that they used my sets!!

Lets start the mini-parade, shall we? :)

Card 1 is Laurie Schmidlin's card using the Cupcakes set. I can't tell you how many times I've tried to copy her effortless layered style in secret! This one is a stunner!


Card 2 is Stacey Schafer's card using the Moments Remembered set. Love how she uses ribbons so beautifully on her cards. And the peacock feathers are so beautifully fussy cut!


Card 3 is Julee Tilman's card using the Pink Power set. Julee has a beautiful style that I liked to think of as layered CAS. Love this card that shows strength and softness so well!


So there you have it with my favorite Verve creations! Those sets are also my favorite sets :) Now on to some details for the Diva Dare!
