Rules?  Who needs 'em?  Well, I guess a few are helpful to keep things tidy...

1. Upload a card or paper crafted project inspired by the current challenge.  Feel free to substitute shapes/layers and take poetic license in your creations!

2. Verve Stamps are not required to participate, but we do LOVE to see 'em getting inky!

3. Link directly to the place where we can see and comment on your lovely creation.  For example, instead of my general blog URL,

4. In your post or gallery upload, please mention and link to the current challenge here at Viva la Verve.  Feel free to copy and paste the sketch graphic in your post; however, it is not required.

5. Deadline for prizes are listed in the challenge post.  Each link list will stay up for the current month, but you can always share your older challenge creations by leaving us a comment!


  1. Can we link our viva la verve submissions for each week to other card challenges also?

  2. What if I don't have a blog? How can I participate?

  3. Hi MissChicas! If you don't have a blog, there are a number of free online galleries you can upload your card to and then link from there (Splitcoaststampers, FlickR, Photobucket, Pinterest, etc.). The card just needs to be online somewhere public so we can come and view your lovely creation.

  4. What size do people make their cards? I am new at this and would love to know if people make cards bigger than the 5 1/2 x 4 1/4

    1. Hi Marilyne. Card size is a personal preference. I see mostly A2 (4.25 x 5.5") cards, but other popular sizes are 5 x 7", 3.5" x 5.5", 4.25 x 4.25" or 6 x 6", as well as 4 x 9" and other sizes to fit regular business envelopes. Whatever size you make, feel free to adjust the sketch and elements to make it work for you.
