"Playing Favorites", December Diva Dare
Welcome to the last Diva Dare of 2013! This month's Dare is entitled "Playing Favorites"and it is a fun one indeed!
What we're daring you to do this month is to post your favorite Verve Stamps 2013 creation OR make a new card using your favorite Verve stamp set.
Hi everyone, it is Teresa; and I am a addicted to Verve....lol. Seriously, I adore my Verve Stamps and anticipate each and every release. I knew I would not be able to narrow this down to a couple. I have been with Julee and Verve Stamps since 2009 and getting new Verve Stamps in the mail is still a highlight for me. I adore all of the Plain Jane scripture stamps and now Julee has combined some of them into larger sets.....I luv this idea, you can get yours here. Are you ready for my favorites? I adore Polka Stars, I used it in my card today. I have a thing for hearts, so Wild Thing is another favorite of mine and many, many more......Whimsy Tree Plain Jane, Wishful Elegance, Snow Wonderful, Feel The Sun, Love's Flower, Dream Big, Love Notes, You and I, Wings of Love, Lean On Me, Holiday Greetings, Let It Be, Poppy Birthday, and Unto Us.
So, you can see my list is quite long and there are tons more I like as well. You really cannot go wrong with Verve and I look so very forward to 2014 and what Julee will share! I have used the Mojo Monday sketch for my card today, I used the Verve Stamp set Shining Star for the main circle panel. I a also going to share a few of my favorite cards from this year.
I hope you are still with me, below are my answers to "The Diva Fab Five Questionnaire". Let us know if you decide to respond to the questionnaire too, I would luv to read your answers!
What are your three favorite Verve products? I mentioned lots of stamps above, but another favorite of mine are The Cut Above Dies by Verve, The Banner Bundle, Classy Label Die, and Jotted Heart Die are just a few.
What is your current go-to color combo? I luv color, when I was a teenager my room was decorated in rainbows. I adore green, any shade; aqua, jade, mint, olive, and turquoise and the list goes on and on. I am really luvin grey as of lately and like paring it with aqua, peach, and pink. I like using black and brown for a pop with my colors.
What is your current go-to embellishment? Ribbon, preferably seam binding; Verve Ribbon Collections are stunning! I also luv using Washi Tape, Carnival Tickets, and Enamel Dots...oh, and always a little glitter...teehehehe.
What is your favorite stamping or organizational tool? My favorite stamping tool is my SU Distressing Tool..hands down. I use the SU DVD style cases for storing my Verve Stamps, luv these too. I also like my Quickutz magnetic folders for storing my dies.
What is your favorite treat to eat while stamping? I enjoy my coffee, I use Starbucks Veranda Blond Blend K-Cups with Truvia and Fat Free Sweet Italian Cream. I also like Godiva Dark Chocolate and White Chocolate Truffles.
