April 2014 Diva Dare~Day 10

"Little Things" - April Diva Dare

Morning Verve friends...it's Andrea here with you today and I want to welcome you to April's Diva Dare!  In honor of Spring's arrival this month's Dare is entitled "Little Things".  

What we're daring you to do this month is to create a baby or kids themed card. I decided that this cute little monkey from the 'To the Moon' set would pair up perfectly with some 'Wander' paper to make a darling little baby boy card:



I stamped the sweet little monkey and colored him in with Prismacolor pencils. The sentiment is stamped on a Mini Bookplate die and matted on it's coordinating shape. The banners are made with A Cut Above dies Banner Bundles die set.  I added the Pennant Trim die down the vertical edge of the striped paper panel. I accented with lots of Liquid Pearls, a button, twine and a metal edge tag. And I added a little hand stitching, as well.
I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch as my design:

April 2014 Diva Dare ~ Day 9


Hello there! Maureen here with my take on this month's Diva Dare!
"Little Things" - April Diva Dare
Welcome to April's Diva Dare!  In honour of Spring's arrival (in some parts of North America anyway!), this month's Dare is entitled "Little Things".    The challenge is to create a baby or kid themed card, how fun!


I was inspired by Teresa's Week 2 Viva La Verve sketch and a patchwork quilt.  I made a baby girl card for the Inspiration Hop this month and wanted to make a baby boy card with the same Smallest Things plain jane.  The banners were created with the Flag It Die set.  A little wooden heart and some sequins finish off this sweet little boy's card.

April 2014 Diva Dare - Day 8

"Little Things" - April Diva Dare

Welcome to April's Diva Dare!  Christyne here and today I'm bringing you a little inspiration for this month's challenge! In honor of Spring's arrival (in some parts of North America anyway!), this month's Dare is entitled "Little Things".    The challenge is to create a baby or kid themed card, how fun!  


To answer this month's Diva Dare, I just had to pull out my favorite Emery stamp!  I just love him done up in all pastels, so I went super sweetly-themed for my card.  I combined many of my favorite Verve elements with the To the Moon stamp set, including the Banner Bundle die set, the Scalloped Trim Trio die, and the Pastel Sequins mix.  These elements were just perfect with this week's Mojo Monday sketch (#341) so I couldn't resist pairing the two. 





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.
