September 2014 Diva Dare ~ Day 12

Hello there! Hope your weekend is amazing so far, I know mine is! It's been about 70 degrees and sunny, so amazing! I'm here today with Day 12 of this month's Diva Dare.  This month is all about threes!  Back to school time usually means life is a 3 ring circus, so this month we're daring you to add 3 of something to your card or project. 


I pulled out the Small Packages stamp set for my card and made 3 big ole beautiful cupcakes! First, I pulled out my Tombow markers and swiped some green, pink, and blue ink on watercolor paper. Then I blended the colors out with a wet paintbrush. I heat embossed the three large cupcakes in black on watercolor paper and then colored them with the watercolor markers. The sentiment is from Moments Remembered.




Two ways to win prizes for double the fun!

Win a $40 gift voucher to Verve! Take our Terrific Trios dare and link your card up to be eligible to win.  Entries must have 3 of something on your card or project, be posted 9/12 or later, include at least one Verve product and be linked up to the linky widget by 8pm Mountain on 10/01/14.  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 Verve set of your choice! For another chance to win some new Verve, leave a little comment love on our design team's Celebrate Good Times 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 October 1, 2014.

Winners will be announced on October 2, 2014.
