August 2014 Diva Dare - Day 9

Celebrate Good Times - August Diva Dare

Welcome to August's Diva Dare! Jen here with my take on this month's dare entitled Celebrate Good Times.     

Verve is turning 7 this month and we’d love to see your celebration cards.  Think wedding, birthday, anniversary… anything that brings the confetti out!


Today I'm sharing a clean and simple birthday card I made for a friend of my daughter. She LOVES bright fun colors so I went with white, lime green and bright pink. I started with a white A2 card base and then layered it with another white piece of card stock embossed with dots. I used a scalloped border punch to create the three little scallops and added three sequins to the top. I stamped Birthday To You Plain Jane on top in bright pink and die cut it with a large die from the Banner Bundle Die Set.

Hope you enjoyed my take on the Diva Dare this month! Now you are invited to play along with us and get inky!

August 2014 Diva Dare - Day 8

Celebrate Good Times - August Diva Dare

Welcome to August's Diva Dare! Chaitali here with my take on this month's dare entitled Celebrate Good Times.     

Verve is turning 7 this month and we’d love to see your celebration cards.  Think wedding, birthday, anniversary… anything that brings the confetti out!

This is the first of many days (yup there is more coming this month!) of celebrating Anni-Verve-sary for me! I felt it was appropriate that I use a bunch of stamps to create a collage of happy sentiments. Each of the sentiments here comes from a different Verve set. Lets start counting shall we?

"Have a happy day" from Be Blessed; "Celebrate" from Moments Remembered; "Love" from Text Objects; "Enjoy" from Learning to Sail; "Smile" from Happy Place and "Celebrate Today" from one mystery unreleased set ;)

I kept the background simple with some patterned paper from my stash and let the sentiments collage be the focal point of the card. I couldn't resist adding some white embossed flowers colored in distress inks. I followed Jennifer McGuire's tutorial to color the flowers quickly and fussy cut them to get a crisp white outline. The flower stamps are from Be Blessed and Happy Place sets.

Hope you enjoyed my take on the Diva Dare this month! Now you are invited to play along with us and get inky!

August 2014 Diva Dare - Day 7

Celebrate Good Times - August Diva Dare


Welcome to August's Diva Dare!  Maureen here with my take on this month's dare entitled Celebrate Good Times.     

Verve is turning 7 this month and we’d love to see your celebration cards.  Think wedding, birthday, anniversary… anything that brings the confetti out!
 

 I can always remember Verve's Anniversary year as I got married in the same year!  Lucky 7 this year!  I chose some soft pretty papers from Teresa Collins' Summer Stories pad for the base of my card.  Then I embossed the Happy Place flowers with some old rose gold embossing powder I had in my stash and stamped this beautiful sentiment from Moments Remembered onto a vellum tag.
 

 I looked through some older Verve sets to find the perfect little sentiment to go with the main quote.  This one came from Remember This.  I wanted to somehow acknowledge "7" years on my card so I made this sweet little tag with the "7" from Calendar Countdown.  Of course you can't have an anniversary without some bling so I made sure to use a smattering of the Shine Bright Sequin Mix for a celebratory look!
