Viva la Verve! January 2013 Week 1 (12/28/12-1/3/13)
It might not "technically" be 2013 yet, but we're kicking it off anyway! Are you ready for a new year of Viva la Verve?!? I know we are!
***NEW TWIST!*** We have a fun little twist to add this year, something low key, not mandatory, and only once a month! Once a month, on a rotating weekly basis, we're going to have an inspiration picture for you to use as well! You can use just the sketch, just the inspiration (pick colors, a layout, a theme, etc from the inspiration picture), or you can combine both challenges into one card! For January, we'll have the inspiration challenge on week 1, and in February it'll be on Week 2, and so on and so forth Sound like fun? Well lets get this party started!
Just a reminder, Verve stamps are NOT required but we love to see you use them. Feel free to flip, rotate, resize, or otherwise alter the sketch as long as we can tell you USED the sketch!
For January, we'll have FIVE sketches! All FIVE cards must be uploaded to the VLVJan2013 gallery by midnight, CST on Thursday, January 31st to be eligible to win this month's prize! Winner will be announced on February 1st!
Keywords for the entire month will be VLVJan2013 and Verve (if using Verve stamps).
GOOD LUCK! You'll find the Week 1 sketch and the Inspiration Picture I chose for this week from Pinterest! Here is the original link for the beautiful color story! Feel free to use the colors as inspiration, a layout you might see, or don't use it at all and just play with the sketch! Remember, you can use the inspiration picture with the sketch provided, use the inspo pic alone (not useing the sketch) or combine the two! No pressure See, we're easy!
A huge thank you to Diva's Maureen and Teresa for their beautiful samples! We hope you enjoy your week and can't wait to see your creations!
Oh this looks like so much fun. Can't wait to get back into the card making mode. Got off my game during the Christmas season, but now back at it with such a lovely card starter idea. Can't wait to give it a try.
Well, so far I have made three cards with the first sketch challenge - but I completely forgot about the inspiration challenge so....I might have to do a fourth!
For now, here are the first three! This year I am going to try to do a masculine card, a feminine card and a holiday/special occasion card with each sketch. Not sure how long I'll be able to keep that up but....at least for the first sketch I was able!
Amber - it took most of the month but at last I got my week 1 card made. Thanks for the sketch and lovely pictures.
