September Diva Dare

The September Diva Dare is going on over at the Verve Blog!  This month's theme is Fanspiration!  The Divas are sharing creations with new Verve that were inspired by creations from Verve Fans!!

I really had a tough time with this dare because I couldn't decide on A card. It took me a while just to narrow it down from all the fabulous Verve Fan creations in the gallery. . .but I still ended up with two that I just couldn't decide between! One of the cards I was so inspired by is THIS CARD from girlgeek101. This card is totally my style. I LOVE how Audrie used the embossing to add detail to this simple but elegant card along with that pop of color with the flower image. I created my card using the Learning To Sail set. Since the stamps I used to stamp behind the sentiment were line stamps and not silhouette, I added a border of cardstock in the same color as the ship to bring it out a little more.
I used the Beaded Oval Nestabilities for my focal piece. I'm not sure how well it shows in the picture, but I added a tranparent pearl on each "bead" with a Viva Pearl Pen. I thought it would be a neat detail that added to the water theme. :)

The other card that I just couldn't decide between was THIS CARD from Jen Mitchell. I just LOVED the colors that Jen used in her card. I LOVE the warm, Fall colors with a pop of red! I also loved Jen's layout. I just changed the stamps and the papers for my card and added a sentiment using the Lean On Me set with the leaves from Dream Big.

I die cut the flowers using the Pointed Flowers Die Set, stamped them in red ink and then used a blender pen with the ink pad to color them. The leaves were die cut using the Dreamy Leaves Die Set. I also used the Rounded Rectangle Die as well as the Rounded Scallop Frame Die with the border stamp from the Treasured Words set.
