September 2014 Diva Dare

Terrific Trios - September Diva Dare

Welcome to September's Diva Dare!  This month's dare is entitled Terrific Trios.  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 used this week's Viva La Verve sketch by Diva Charmaine, and immediately thought of using this wonderful image from the newly released One Cup.  Needless to say, the trio aspect of the dare was all taken care of wink, wink.  The matching Cuppa Tea Die Set was great for cutting out the cup image and then I paper pieced them with MME's Stella and Rose papers (still love these papers!).  Opted for a natural pallet so the cups would pop, and added the crimped panel and some raffia for a bit of texture.



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.

  1. Too right a 3 ringed circus lol. Your card is lovely, I do like the muted colours you have used. That stitching design around the edge is lovely too.

  2. What a wonderful challenge idea.
    I am a teacher and the start of a new school year can indeed feel like a three ring circus.
    Lots of things going on all around all at once.
    It is an exciting yet exhausting time of year for sure.
    Marissa Thanks for sharing your CUTE card.
    Crafty hugs,
