Happy Friday! This week I have a little Color My Heart Color Dare Tracey Trivia: The Color My Heart Color Dare challenge was founded in 2011 by Sarah Stone – Sarah is no longer a design team member, however she still participates on a fairly regular basis. I first participated in the Color Dare in April of 2015, I was too late to actually link up my card (time zones used to give me hives) but I stuck around and my first official entry was #143 – the challenge was black, white & gold and you can find that card here. I was an Emerald Winner with that challenge and I guess you could say that being a winner brought me back. My first Guest Appearance as a Design Team member happened on May 28, 2015. Pretty much from that point on I’ve been hooked…sure I’ve taken a break now and then, but my first love is the Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge.
Why am I telling you this? Lately “the Color Dare” has been lacking participants…we aren’t sure if it’s summer, back to school or that suddenly everyone has quit stamping (gasp)! This week is the perfect week to get started – or come back – really what do you have to lose?
Basically the rules are pretty simple – you create with a color combination that we provide (if you don’t have the exact colors get them close) – in the Close to My Heart World this weeks colors are: Ruby, Peacock & Kraft. In the Stampin’ Up World your colors might resemble: Cherry Cobbler, Tranquil Tide & Crumb Cake. The point is there are some options. This challenge is not affiliated with Close to My Heart although there are lots of consultants on the Design Team.
So, are you ready to get started? I am!
I love Kraft cardstock – I think it’s an amazing neutral and probably a little because it reminds me of days before plastic bags at the grocery store (I still ask for paper). I saw a super cute card on Pinterest and although I didn’t have the exact same dies it gave me a fun idea for a card anyway.
Everything on my card was die cut using Close to My Heart Thin Cuts – except the thin red strip (1/8 inch to be exact) and then adhered to the front of the card.
So, 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 won’t you please come play along.
If you are local to me and would like to come Create in the Coop – I’d be happy to help you just send me a message.
