April 2014 Diva Dare - Day 4

"Little Things" - April Diva Dare

Welcome to April's Diva Dare!  In honor of Spring's arrival (in some parts of North America anyway!), this month's Dare is entitled "Little Things".    

Stacey here!  I'm so excited to bring you another day of "Little Things" inspiration!  
What we're daring you to do this month is to create a baby or kids themed card. 


The "Little Things" challenge was my chance to dust off these adorable stamp sets, Geared Up and Birthday Bots to create a fun card for a little guy!  When my boys were little, they loved robots, gears and anything with parts - to take apart!  I must admit that making this card had me reminiscing back to a time when my oldest son would tuck his favorite robot under his pillow at night!  Now, he is (almost) 14 and sadly, there are no more robots under his pillow.  Where does the time go?!


In addition to Geared Up and Birthday Bots stamp sets, I used the Rounded Rectangle Tag Die to frame up the cutie-patootie robot, and the Banner Bundle Die Set tucked behind the tag to extend the focal point.  





Deadline to link your cards is 8PM Mountain on Wednesday, April 23rd.  Entries must be posted 4/4 or later, include at least one Verve product, be a baby or kids themed card, and be linked up to the linky widget by 8pm Mountain on 4/23/14.   



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




Win a $40 Gift voucher to Verve Stamps! Take our "Little Things" Dare and link up your card (created April 4th 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 "Little Things" 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 April 23, 2014.


Winners will be announced on April 24, 2014. 

The Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #340 is still up and running and worked as a wonderful layout for my "Geared Up for Fun" card today!  It's CONTEST WEEK over at Mojo Monday, so you won't want to miss a chance at some free Verve!


Thanks so much for stopping by the Verve Stamps Blog today!  


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