PINK! – Color Dare #215

Happy Friday and welcome to another week of the Color My Heart Color Dare.  This week we are featuring  the colors: Cotton Candy, Pixie and White Daisy.

Pink is definitely my color!  I had thought about going with a floral theme so I started by pulling out the Flower Market Cricut Cartridge.

I ended up with an elephant!  The polka-dot patterned paper is from the new Whimsy Paper Fundamentals, I layered it with Pixie cardstock and a white daisy panel which I stamped with a B&T stamp from the Flower Market coordinating stamp set.  I then layered my little elephant cut from Pixie and Cotton Candy papers.  The entire panel is then popped up with some 3D foam tape.  I finished off the card with some bakers twine from the new Adventure pallete.  Since we all know I’m a bit bow challenged I just tied it in a knot and split the ends.

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!

While at the homepage – check out what the other design team members have created and leave them a little love (comments make our day)!

Leave me a message telling me what your favorite image from the Flower Market cartridge is.  Thanks for taking the time to stop by.


Who’s Your Melon?

My husband is my one in a melon!  As of yesterday we have been married six funtabulous years!  My hope is that he knows how much I love him and everything he does for me.

This fun card features papers from the Calypso paper packet.  That strip of words is actually a zip strip.  Do you use them on your cards?  I think they are just the right pick me up AND you don’t have to cut a half inch strip off your beautiful 12X12 sheets!  I try to incorporate them often.

Both the One in A Melon stamp set and the Calypso paper packet will be retiring at the end of August so make sure you get them on your next order.  There is a big list of items retiring at the end of July so make sure you double check your wish list and get them ordered before they are gone.  If you don’t have a consultant I’d love to be yours.  You can find me on facebook, leave me a message here (include how to reach you) or place an order on my consultant website.

Would you like to see a list of shopping items that I use to make my card with a link to order them?  Thanks for stopping by…see you soon!


Pretty Pink Petals

A couple of years ago my son came to me and asked me to start making birthday and Christmas cards for him to give, I felt it was the best complement that I had ever been given.  When he asked me to make a card for his boss from the crew the other day I was blown away.

He told me she liked pink and flowers and it just so happened that the Blossoming Expressions stamp set had just been delivered and I’d seen an awesome card from Michelle Loncar on Pinterest.  I needed a 5 X 7 card so that there was plenty of room for everyone to sign so the large panel random stamped on the front really fit the bill.

I haven’t two-step stamped in ages and it was so much fun.  I even highlighted the flowers with some Wink of Stella for a little glitz.  Apparently the card was a hit!

Thanks for stopping by.
