January 2014 Diva Dare - Day 7

January Diva Dare - "Smitten"

Hello Verve fans, Christyne here bringing you some inspiration for the first Diva Dare of 2014 entitled "Smitten."

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!



For my card, I decided to ink up the fabulous chevron hearts from the Chevron Love set.  I combined these with a sentiment from the same set, breaking up the stamp so it would work with this week's Viva la Verve sketch challenge (January 2014 Week 2).   This combined with the Flag it die set for the "To You" sentiment really gave this card a lot of detail!  I can't wait to give this to a special someone in just about a month!!

I also added a bunch of rhinestones and glitter to inspire any last entries for this month's Shimmer and Shine Inspiration Challenge. You still have time to enter, deadline: January 19th!


OK, back to the Diva Dare:

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.
