December Diva Dare - Day 8

Hi there! Chaitali here today as your Diva Dare hostess!

 Favorite Things - December Diva Dare

This month we are daring you to share your favorite Verve creations for this year OR create a new one with one of your FAVORITE Verve products!

I am so happy Julee gave me the opportunity to join Verve as an illustrator this year. I've loved the chance to make my designs into stamps and even more, I loved all the wonderful creations everyone shared with the stamps!

So for my episode of this month's Diva Dare I decided to showcase some cards that were created with my sets because they really are my favorite Verve creations! None of these are made by me but I found them when lurking on the Verve Pinterest boards and I was so impressed by them! Also honored that they used my sets!!

Lets start the mini-parade, shall we? :)

Card 1 is Laurie Schmidlin's card using the Cupcakes set. I can't tell you how many times I've tried to copy her effortless layered style in secret! This one is a stunner!


Card 2 is Stacey Schafer's card using the Moments Remembered set. Love how she uses ribbons so beautifully on her cards. And the peacock feathers are so beautifully fussy cut!


Card 3 is Julee Tilman's card using the Pink Power set. Julee has a beautiful style that I liked to think of as layered CAS. Love this card that shows strength and softness so well!


So there you have it with my favorite Verve creations! Those sets are also my favorite sets :) Now on to some details for the Diva Dare!
