Fall – Color Dare # 259

Happy Friday and welcome to another week of the Color My Heart Color Dare.  This week we are featuring  the colors: Emerald, Pansy, Gold Rush, Black, White and optional Gold

No automatic alt text available.

I kept thinking how this would be a great FALL kickoff color dare.  I also wanted to highlight Close to My Hearts new 2-sided cardstock.

I tried to stick with the CAS look for this card – I started with layering my white panel (just 1/8th of an inch smaller) on a black card base.  The white card was stamped with the ink blot stamp set and then I layered leaves from the Artiste Cricut cartridge.  The leaves are cut out of Emerald, Goldrush and Pansy – the reverse side is a bit lighter so it really shows the texture when layering leaves and flowers without having to use multiple colors of cardstock.  The sentiment stamped in black is from the All the Thanks Stamp set.  I finished the card with a few Gold Glitter Gems.

OK, now it’s YOUR turn!  The full details on how to join the fun is in the sidebar of our homepage.  We have made a slight change to our Color Dare rules and each challenge will now be open for two weeks – so you have until September 14th to create for this challenge.  We’re hoping this extension will give more people time to create and submit entries.  There will still be a new Color Dare each Friday – they will just overlap.  Make sure you get your artwork submitted as soon as you can and linked up to the correct challenge.

Jack the Bear – Color Dare – 258

Happy Friday and welcome to another week of the Color My Heart Color Dare.  This week we are featuring  the colors from the Jack Paper Pack…Juniper, Ruby, Slate, Sweet Leaf, Whisper, White Daisy and Black.

My husband needed a card for an associate to put a gift card in…I’m so glad that I’m his “go to cardmaker” 🙂  It would really be discouraging if I found him in the Hallmark Aisle of the grocery store.  Since I know this man is an avid outdoors-man I thought it would be fun to use the bear from the Jack Card Making Stamp set.  I love that silly little hat and the tree B&T paper helped me get all the colors of the challenge included.

This fun card cut from the Artiste cartridge keeps that gift card held securely.  I’m also linking up to the Heart to Heart Camp Out and Three Amigos Jack Challenges.

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!

Dreams – Color Dare 256

Happy Friday and welcome to another week of the Color My Heart Color Dare.  This week we are featuring  the colors: Juniper, Peacock, Pomegranate, Black & White Daisy

I was a bit delayed in getting a graduation card/gift off to my husband’s nephew, but I think I was really just waiting for the right stamp set to come along.  I loved this sentiment stamp that comes with the new Cricut cartridge.  It can be used for so many reasons.  I also used one of my MFT Blue Prints Dies for my card.  Looking at my card again I see some changes I want to make with the next one so you’ll be seeing a repeat of this pattern soon.

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!

I wanted to make sure that I got a little more artwork completed with the Operation Smile True Love stamp set before it retires at the end of July.  A Seaglass flower from the All Together complements to layer on top of the silver shimmer trim and a few white dots finish things off.
