January 2014 Diva Dare - Day 3

"Smitten", January Diva Dare

Hi Verve friends!  I'm so excited to share my "Smitten" project with you today!  Inspiration is everywhere and my project was inspired by photo booths, sweethearts candies, and, of course, my darling husband!

What we're daring you to do this month is to make a card or project with a heart, whether it's for the one you love, a sweet Valentine or a lunch note for a child.  Let's get smitten! 


 I was thinking about Photo Booth apps and found a real easy, free one called Pici Booth.  Then I thought it would be fun to hold some large “Sweetheart” candies with sweet little sayings on them.  I made these extra large paper Sweethearts candies, pulled out my red feather boa, and had fun with my new app :)  I printed out the photo strip onto photo paper, cut it in half, then tucked them into a little vellum pocket.



To create my background, I took several Verve hearts from the No Matter What set and embossed them in gold.  Then I took 4 different gelatos and scribbled over the embossed hearts.  Last, I took my aqua pen and did a water wash to blend all the colours.  The DH can tuck these photos into his wallet or use them as bookmarks.  Either way, he'll know how I feel about him all year long!  A picture is worth a thousand words :)


Deadline to link your cards is 8PM Mountain on Wednesday, January 22nd.  Entries must be posted 1/3 or later, include at least one Verve product, include a heart, and be linked up to the linky widget by 8pm Mountain on 1/22/14.  




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


Win a $40 Gift voucher to Verve Stamps! Take our "Smitten" Dare and link up your card (created January 3rd 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.

Win a set of your choice! For another chance to win some new Verve, leave a little comment love on our design team's "Smitten" Diva Dare posts!  One lucky commenter will win a Verve stamp set of his or her choice, so be sure to tune in each day!  Comment deadline to be entered in our prize drawing is January 22, 2014.

Winners will be announced on January 23, 2014. 

- Go forth and get inky! We DARE you! -
