April Diva Dare - Day 9


Hi Verve fans! It's Sankari here and welcome to Day 9 of the April Diva Dare!

For those of you that are new to this challenge, here is how it works...following each release, we will post a theme that we dare you with, and you'll have two weeks to complete the challenge. During those two weeks, the release team will post their creations and tell you how they answered the dare!

This month we dare you to make a card, project, layout, or whatever fits your stamping style using this month's theme - April Showers Bring May Flowers! With the warmer weather, new growth, and all the fresh and beautiful blooms that abound, it is easy to be inspired by Spring! How you interpret the dare is completely up to you! To sweeten up the challenge, stay tuned to learn how you could win some brand new Verve!

This challenge is such a lovely one because it is so much fun to play with and combine all the lovely flower images the amazing and lovely Julee has designed and created! I choose to use the lovely stamp set Bloom and Grow which is full of flowers of all sizes and types and paired it with the lovely Mother's Day sentiment, which is from the Love Deepens Stamp set.


Here is a little Mother's Day Gift set with a card  using the Mojo Monday 189 sketch.  and a container that I intend to fill with some yummy chocolates :)

I stamped the flower from the  Bloom and Grow stamp set in to different colors and cut each one out to layer together with a decorative brad.  After creating the flowers, I stamped the leaf image inis stamp set and cut it out suing the with the ELegant Leaf die stamp set. 

Card Ingredients:

StampsBloom and Grow and Love Deepens Stamp set. from Verve Stamps
Inks: Memento Tuxedo black and Rose Red 
Papers: Bo Bunny
Accessories: EK success scallops, bling from Want 2scrao, ribbon from stash, Ribbon Trio 3 and Wonky rectangles from Spellbinders, Elegant Leaf die from Verve Stamps, dimensionals and liquid pearls. 


I created a coordinating container that can be filled with chocolates and other treats and then later used to store other memorabilia. 


I can't wait to give this little present along with some sweet smelling flowers! Hope that your May is full of flowers!
