It seemed like the perfect combination of Christmas Colors to me.  I’d also seen this fun Post-It holder on Pinterest – watched the video, jotted some notes, but apparently forgot to pin the post – I’ll keep looking and hopefully find it again so I can share the directions for making it.

Falling For You- Color Dare 267

It’s Friday…time for another Color Dare!  Have you participated in one of our challenges?  They aren’t hard at all…you have the freedom to create anything you’d like, card, scrapbook layout, home decor item – the only requirement is that you use our Color Challenge and this week you can’t get any prettier choice than the colors of the Falling for You Paper Packet from Close to My Heart.

No automatic alt text available.

Seeing such a huge Color Palette might seem a little daunting but we are only requiring you to use the colors Saffron, Goldrush and Fern and then you get to pick your own neutral using one, two, three, four or all of the neutrals in the Falling for You Color Pack (Nutmeg, Charcoal, Almond, Toffee, Pewter, Espresso and Linen) You can also use White Daisy.

I am in full fall mode and I have sunflowers by my back door so that was the inspiration I took with my card.  I used one of the focal pieces of B&T from the kit to tie in all the colors of our challenge.  My large sunflower was cut using the Cricut Flower Market Cartridge and then popped up on the top panel of my card.  Burlap Ribbon from the retired basics collection wraps around my card and then I popped up my sentiment on a scalloped circle from the Art Philosophy cartridge.  I scattered a few Bronze Sequins to add a little bling.

OK, now it’s YOUR turn!  The full details on how to join the fun is in the sidebar of our homepage.  Remember each of our Color Dare Challenge is open for two weeks so you have until November 9th to get your project submitted.

My Friend – Color Dare 266

Happy Friday and welcome to another week of the Color My Heart Color Dare.  It’s Pick Your Own Pink Week at the Color Dare, of course we are also requiring that you combine it with Pebble, Pewter, Black, White Daisy and the Optional Silver.

     

Asking me to pick my own pink is like asking me who is my favorite grandchild, LOL!  I settled on using the three step rose from the Beautiful You stamp set then I could use a good majority of them – Bashful, Blossom, Raspberry.  I also stamped my leaves in Pebble and then the veins were stamped in Pewter.  I love the grays from the Basic Palette.

After stamping my rose I decided to hop by the Atlantic Sketch Challenge to see what Michelle and the gang had up their sleeve for the week.  I loved the sketch I found there so decided to incorporate it with my challenge.

 

The Ribbon Border Thin Cut worked just perfectly cutting our Bashful Glitter Paper as my accent piece.  I chose papers from the Basic Fundamentals line and a piece of Pewter Cardstock which I embossed with the Rose Embossing Folder (you can only see the peeked out edges on my card).

 

 

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 for two weeks so you have until November 2nd to create with these colors.

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

I love this color combination, oh who am I kidding I love all the Color Dare combinations, however using Bashful just seems to make this one a tad more special – after all it is the Color of the Year!

Oh yes, that hello die cut from glitter paper is making it’s appearance once again in a Color Dare Challenge.  My card front uses the “light” side of the Bashful cardstock with a layer of Pomegranate B&T from the Adventure Fundamentals packet I then layered a piece of Bashful Glitter paper onto Black cardstock and layered it at an angle – black dots finish off the card.

 

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 for two weeks to give you plenty of time to link up!

Don’t Be Blue – Color Dare #264

8ac7a-color2bmy2bheart2bdesign2bteam

Happy Friday and welcome to another week of the Color My Heart Color Dare.  This week we are featuring  the colors: Crystal Blue, Pacifica, Sapphire, White Daisy & Black

No automatic alt text available.

 

I was really excited when I saw that Color Dare #264 was a monochromatic (for the most part) color scheme.  Then all I could think of was the Wayne Newton song “Red Roses for a Blue Lady” – where do things like that come from?  I wondered if I should make blue roses – then I started thinking about a sweater I had in college that was red with large blue roses on it…good grief will I ever get my card made?

I finally headed to my Pinterest boards where I found some inspiration here.  I really had to search the perfect Happy Birthday stamp and found it in a retired set (that is why I keep almost ALL of the stamps I buy) I also used the Short & Sweet stamp set one of my favorite sentiment sets and if it’s not in your collection it should be!

I cut my white card front 1/4 inch smaller than my card base.  I love the look that added layer gives to a card especially when it’s popped up with some Thin 3D Foam Tape.  When I started my card I initially thought I needed to draw lines to keep my sentiment straight, but then I had another idea…I took a thin strip (1/4 inch) of Washi Tape and taped my card down to my Versa Mat and started my first line of Happy Birthday in Crystal Blue, then I turned my mat and stamped in Pacifica and then turned it again and stamped it in Sapphire.  My sentiment was stamped in black and I sponged the edges of the banner with Crystal Blue ink.  I wrapped a piece of white twine twice and tied it in a knot under the Crystal Blue star which I cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge.  A scattering of black dots finished it off.
