Verve January Diva Dare - Smitten

Happy New Year everyone, and welcome to the first Diva Dare of 2014!  This month's Diva Dare at Verve Stamps is entitled "Smitten."

What we're daring you to do this month is to make a card or project with a heart, whether it's for the one you love, a sweet Valentine or a lunch note for a child.  Let's get smitten!

 For a little extra fun, I used the Viva La Verve Color Challenge - January Week 1!  Blue, brown and red are fantastic colors for a valentine.  You'll want to make sure and stop by the new Viva La Verve Challenge Blog, too, for inspiration and more chances to score some Verve for your stash!

A little birdie told me that there's a SMITTEN themed challenge up and running over at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge, too!  Go check it out!

I die cut of whole kit and caboodle of hearts from the Wavy Hearts Die, stitched them up in sweet rows to create a frame for that fabulous sentiment from Love's Flower stamp set.  While the Wavy Hearts Die is a fairly new die of mine, the Love's Flower stamp set is one of the first sets I ever purchased from Verve Stamps!  Not only is this set perfect for Valentine's Day card, but, it is truly great for all occasions...I find myself going for it over and over again all throughout the year!

Here's a closeup of that gorgeous sentiment from Love's Flower and those darling hearts from the Heart Quartet Die stitched up in a row!


Head on over to the Verve Stamps Blog to see what the other Divas whipped up for this month's Dare!

Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!

This is absolutely scrumptious, Stacey! Makes me want to go figure out how to wind a bobbin so I can use my sewing maching again! LOL
