Warm Wishes – Color Dare #271

Happy Friday and welcome to another week of the Color My Heart Color Dare.  This week we are featuring  the colors of the Beary Christmas Papers.  There are so many to choose from…and you’re in charge.  The challenge this week is to use at least 3 (including neutrals) and as many of 9 of these colors: Fern, New England Ivy, Cranberry, Glacier, Tangerine, White Daisy, Pebble, Pewter and Charcoal.

 

It seems like a little overwhelming when you see a Color Dare with so many colors, but it’s amazing how many colors you can start working in when you grab that paper packet.  To work in some additional colors I reached for the Dot Zip Strip and one of the PML cards from the Beary Christmas paper packet.

OK, now it’s YOUR turn!  The full details on how to join the fun is in the sidebar of our homepage.

In Love with Silver & Gold

There shouldn’t be any doubt that I love playing with Black, White & Gold.  It’s such an elegant color combination.  I had some fun playing with the Silver & Gold Paper packet today and since I wanted to update my Display Tray (long retired) I took a few minutes to do that as well.

On the bottom left corner I added a piece of Zip Strip & Gold Shimmer Trim cut into banners and a Gold Foil die cut heart.  The “love” in the upper right hand corner was cut with the Flower Market Cricut cartridge.

Even though a lot of the papers in this kit are theme specific there are still plenty to use without feeling Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by.  Make sure you come by later this week to see what else I’ve been up too!

Anything But Basic Christmas – Color Dare #270

Happy Friday and welcome to another week of the Color My Heart Color Dare.  This week we are featuring  the colors: Mink, Heather, Espresso, White Daisy and a Red of your choice along with Optional Gold.

I chose Pomegranate for my red and used B&T from the Basics Fundamentals Pack to give my Mink Base some texture.  I used a wreath, poinsettia, pinecone and snowflake from the Cricut Flower Market cartridge to bring my card some holiday cheer.

OK, now it’s YOUR turn!  The full details on how to join the fun is in the sidebar of our homepage.  Each color dare is open until 9:00 CDT on Thursday!

A Magical Wish

I’ve loved unicorns since I was a child and I’m not embarrassed to admit that I still have a fascination for the magical creatures.

I have a special little girl’s birthday coming up and I started with just making a gift card holder for her, but when I was researching ideas  wasting time on Pinterest I found the cutest idea to add the Artiste Gift Card Holder to the inside of a card base – simply brillant!

I was quite pleased how my card came together and it even inspired me to decorate the inside of my card, which I’ve been fairly lax at lately.

Thanks for stopping by!
