January 2014 Diva Dare - Day 8

January Diva Dare - "Smitten"


Happy New Year everyone, and welcome to the first Diva Dare of 2014!  Amber here with today's Diva Dare post! This month's Dare is 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!


There is no shortage of Verve love from Verve Stamps! The valentine stamps are some of my FAVORITE releases from Verve! For my card, I used the fun heart border stamp from Hundred Hearts and the Much Love Plain Jane!





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! -

  4. Love the layering. I admire anybody who stitches on their cards. I'm afraid I'll tear something and have to start over (I know I'm a chicken). Great card.
