January Diva Dare-Day 6


Good morning everyone!  It's Charmaine.  I hope you've been inspired by the beautiful creations thus far for the Diva Dare!  I know I have!  :)  Today it's my turn to share what I've created.  This month's theme was Baby Love

We dare you to make a card, project, layout, or whatever fits your stamping style using this month's theme - Baby Love! The baby part could be for a new little someone...or a special someone! Be sure to look for the details on how you can win some new Verve goodies at the end of this post!

I created something for my "babies" for Valentine's Day.  It's funny because I always call my kids "my babies" (when I'm not calling them "my little bugs", of course) and my girls will say "we're not babies, Mom" and I'll say "you'll ALWAYS be MY baby!" and they just smile and shrug their shoulders.  It's true, though.  No matter how old they are, they'll always be my babies!  So, in keeping with this month's theme, I created little Valentine treats for them.

I started off with the Baskets and Blooms die from Stampin' Up to create the little basket.  I filled it with matching filler and some candy and then decorated the outside.  The heart was die cut using the Jotted Heart Die from Verve along with the Love Notes set. 

The butterfly was also created using the Jotted Heart Die!  I cut two hearts out of pink felt and sewed them together.  Then, I added pearls for the body of the butterfly and some wire for the antennae.  The girls haven't seen these yet because I want them to be a little surprise on Valentine morning!  :) 


So......will you answer the dare? If so, here are some details:

1. Play along with us and link up your new Baby Love creation (posted January 14th or later) to the linky widget on the DAY ONE Diva Dare post before midnight MST on January 29th. One lucky stamper will win a $30.00 gift certificate to the Verve Store. Verve Stamps are not required, but if you've got 'em we would LOVE to see ‘em!

2. For another chance to win, be sure to give the Divas a little shout-out in the comments section as we share our Baby Love creations. One lucky commenter will win the Verve stamp set of his or her choosing! Winners will be announced on Monday, January 31st right here on the Verve blog.
So go ahead and show us your Baby Love creations...we DARE you!

Hope you enjoyed my project!  I can't wait to see your creations!

  13. That is so sweet! I think that conversation is a universal conversation between mothers and their children. I am really taken by the butterfly and can't wait to see how big it is in real life. If it's not too big, I could make a really cute hair clip for my daughter.
