This time the Diva Dare challange from Verve Stamps is to Case-A-Diva. I chose to case Amy Sheffer's card titled "Amazing Grace". Amy's card is shown below:
You can see her delicate cross with the beautiful saying. But in my world I like to super size so my Case-a-Diva is supersized, as you can see by my card below:
I really can't tell you who made all the materials except for the stamp sentiment which is Verve's, Amazing Grace-Plain Jane. The cross is a cross I cut off a card and have now found the perfect card for it to go on. It sits atop a black and white poka dot paper and under that is a striped paper in turquoise. I used a black and white ribbon. The sentiment was stamped on white card stock and edged in CTMH's ink called Lagoon.

I used black card stock as my base card. Then I layered white card sock then b/w poka dot paper. The center panel is a yellow honey cone paper backed with a thin white border. The sun is yellow poka dot paper that I glued to black card stock and cut out. I used a scalloped sissor to make the edges decorative. The clouds are a soft muted blue and white. I used soft greenish blue for the banners at the bottom and a sentiment sticker that says "life is good".
This card is still a standard size but is folded long ways. Cut at 4 1/4 X 11; folded at 5 1/2.
Started with a bright blue card stock as my base for the card. I cut a 3/4 " piece off the top flap at the bottom and added an olive strip of paper that I used a EK border punch to add the decorative border. Rounded the bottom corners on back and front flaps. Next I added a piece of olive paper which I also rounded the bottom corners. The center decoration is a paper frame which I glued down then placed a flower in the center of the frame. I stamped the sentiment below the frame and then add 2 corner brackets at the top. A very simple card because all the elements were ready to go.
Note: The frame, flower and corner brackets were all out the same package I purchased at Michaels some (long) time ago. Sorry I can't tell you who it is by.
I was given this stamp along with many others, so I don't know who manufactures the stamp but I have used it on tags and cards many times.
The base for this card is white card stock. I used a strip of bright blue paper at the top and a strip of striped paper full of bright bold colors at the bottom of the card. I stamped the present 3 times on scratch white paper, colored them and cut them out. I put a blue ribbon in the center of the card and ran it horizontally. Then a placed the presents across the card. I put three rhinstones at the bottom right. For the sentiment I punched out ascalloped oval (out of the striped paper_ and a smaller white oval which I stamped the sentiment on. Glued those together and placed it slightly left of center, which completes the card.
Oops, I almost forgot. I used stickles to glitter each bow on the presents.
I love this Tree stamp from Hero Arts. The swirl of the limbs are so elegant. For this card I randomly put gold beads in the limbs. It was stamped with olive ink from CTMH. I used a nestibillity die to cut it out and stenciled it with Versa Magic's sahsra sand. For the card I used an olive green card stock. The first layer is beige cardstock topped with a poka dot paper. I cut a striped piece of paper and placed it going vertically on the card. I placed olive ribbon and a couple of corner brackets on the card and followed it by the sentiment And of course, the last item to complete this card is the beautiful little tree.
Once in a while I tone things down and will do a monocromatic card. Well this was one of those times. Sorry for the glare on the leaves but I couldn't get the glare off.
The card base is a medium brown and I added two patterned papers that have the exact same colors. I used a decorative border punch at the bottom. I put a ribbon where the two papers come together. I stamped out flowers onto velum and cut them put a brad in the center of each flower and popped them up on deminsionals. Did the same on the leaves. Stamped the sentiment.
To make this card I started out with white card stock as my base. I put a strip of striped paper on the lefthand side and covered the rest of the card with green paper. I rounded the corners before adhereing it to the card stock. I put a trim on the card that had all the colors of the striped paper . Next I stamped the little lanturns, colored and cut the out. Popped them on deminsional and put them on a strip of white card stock with a blue trim on either side. All that is left to do is PARTY.
