November Diva Dare ~ Day 3

"Shape Up", November Diva Dare

Hey there Verve fans!! Maureen here with my twist on this month's Diva Dare entitled "Shape Up".

What we're daring you to do this month is to create a card or project including a common shape.  For example:  hexagons, chevrons, arrows, triangles, hearts, stars etc.  Lots of fun ways you can go with this dare and I can't wait to see what you create!

Here is my card using this month's dare:


Hexagons, snowflakes and diamonds, oh my!  LOL!  When I was juggling ideas around for this Diva Dare, I knew I wanted hexagons and snowflakes, but the diamonds were an added bonus! Aren't they always?  I embossed my white cardstock with the Stampin' Up Honeycomb embossing folder then stamped in smallest snowflake in Holiday Treats in light grey.  I die cut a HUGE sparkly snowflake to layer under a stamped doily.  Some beautiful Signature Ribbon seam binding added the last touch with some sparkly jingle bells.  Oh, so many of my favourite things on this one!  Want to play along for a chance to win? Here's how...


 Deadline to link your cards is 8PM Mountain on Wednesday, November 27th.  Entries must be new (posted 11/8 or later), include at least one Verve product, include a common shape, and be linked up to the linky widget by 8pm Mountain on 11/27/13. 



During this month's Diva Dare, there are 2 prizes up for grabs!


Win a $40 Gift voucher to Verve Stamps! Take our "Shape Up" Dare and link up your card (created November 8th or later) to the linky widget below to be eligible to win.  One participant will be randomly selected to win the gift voucher.  You can enter as many times as you like, but each card needs to be in a separate post.

  26. Exquisite card. I would never have thought to do hexagons with the snowflakes, but it is perfect. So often, on very cold winter days, the diamond dust on the surface of the snow looks like hex shapes. This was a brilliant idea and lovely effect.
