It’s a Free For All over at the Double Trouble Challenge Blog. That’s really nothing new, but we celebrate when the calendar has 5 Monday’s in a month.
Trouble Maker is trying to get us to “Shape Up” for the new year and has challenged us to use multiple shapes on our projects – I’ve included a tag & banner (rectangle) along with a circle.
Did you know that it’s National Bird Week in the USA? Twisted sister didn’t either, but to give a shout out to her feathered friends she’s asking that you add a bird, a nest, a birdhouse etc to your project.
Finally Double Dare is asking you to pair with one of our previous partners so pick your favorite – go check out their challenge and then combine our challenges for twice as much fun!
I had two choices for birds in my stamping stash – a penguin or a chicken, LOL! Then when I was going through my die cuts I found a cute birdhouse die that I don’t think I’ve ever used. My Penguin in Paradise comes from the My Favorite Things Stamp line and I colored with my Copic markers. That bright blue background is a B&T from the new Something Fierce paper packet from Close to My Heart
I hope you’ll come play with us – Double Trouble is Double the fun!!!
Blue is the color of the sky and sea. It is often associated with depth and stability. It symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, truth, and heaven. Blue is considered beneficial to the mind and body.
Welcome to Color My Heart Color Dare #319 where you get to choose your blue. Will your card be one color like mine or a mix of different blues?
I chose to play with the new Close to My Heart color Carolina. It’s a beautiful blue perfect for baby boy cards, birthday cards and just about any other card you might want to make.
My card is a small 4.5 X 4.5 square. I embossed the Carolina panel with the star confetti to tie it into the sentiment. I added a few bitty sparkles for a little sparkle, but keeping things very simple.
Now it’s your turn to come and play…the full list of rules is located at the top of the Color My Heart Color Dare page and while you are there take a look at the other design team members cards. We all work very hard to bring you inspiration each week.
Happy Friday and welcome to another week of the Color My Heart Color Dare. Challenge #316 is Monochromatic Greens – you choose! Each Color Dare Challenge is open for two weeks – this challenge closes on Thursday, November 8th.
I chose Willow – it’s my favorite Green! I used a B&T leftover from the City Sidewalks collection stamped a swirl pattern on white and then layered on a fancy tag which I embellished with white dots and twine. Simple & sweet…that’s my favorite kind of card.
OK, now it’s YOUR turn! What greens will you choose to create with? The rules on how to join are located on a tab at the top of the Color Dare Blog here
While at the homepage – check out what the other design team members have created and leave them a little love (comments make our day)!
Welcome to another week of the Color My Heart Color Dare. This week it’s Tic Tac Toe…one of our most popular weeks at the Color Dare. It’s really quite easy – we provide the board you decide which colors you want to use.
There are so many fun combinations I had a hard time deciding what I was going to do, but I finally settled on a card for an October Birthday and created with Black, Lemon & Nectarine the Vertical Row on the right side.
Although no longer in the catalog the Sweet Birthday stamp set and thin cuts are still available in my online shopping section here. This is such a fun set and the cupcake can be decorated with sprinkles or a cute smile too!
There are so many fun cards made by the Design Team this week you really need to head over and take a look.
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!
Happy Friday! It’s time for a new Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge. This week we are creating with the Colors: Clover, Lagoon & Nectarine and Kraft is optional.
I just finished a custom order for assorted birthday cards and this was one of the cards I came up with, most of the cards were for women, but my customer wanted a few masculine cards too!
The retired Jack Stamp Set is still available on the clearance section of my website here. The stamp set WITH matching die cuts is only $9.50 is a steal of a deal! The panel behind “Jack” is embossed with the plaid embossing folder. This was my customer’s FAVORITE card!
So now it’s YOUR turn to play along…you’ll find all the details on how to enter on the sidebar of our homepage, you’ll also find inspiration in artwork provided by other members of the design team. Make sure you visit their sites so you can show them a little love.
I always appreciate that you stop by and read the comments that you leave. Tell me what your favorite masculine card includes.
It’s time to “rev up” those engines and get another Double Trouble Challenge underway. This week Trouble Maker is asking us to use Black & White and only one more color she’s either going to the Cruella Deville look or maybe Rainbow Bright. Whatever it is she’s going to be a rockstar!!! Twisted Sister is asking you to pay homage to your man’s “wheel-ie” special toy! That could be a plain, train or automobile.
I was going to put together a scrapbook page about my husband’s new John Deere, but instead chose to focus on getting a few more birthday cards made before the end of the year.
This card features Black, White & Candy Apple – a brand new Close to My Heart Color. I was so excited when a real red joined our palette. The racecar birthday stamp is one of my favorite – although no one in my family is a race enthusiast it’s easy to personalize with a number perhaps depicting the persons age or birth year.
Thing 3 has suggested a link to Crafters Cafe – so I’m off to link up there and hope you’ll find the time to join us in this fun challenge!
Happy Friday! It’s everyone’s favorite week at the Color My Heart Color Dare! What colors will you create with from the Color Dare Tic Tac Toe Board?
We are having a little competition amongst the Design Team to recruit players. Please mention me if you decide to come play!!!
I chose the middle horizontal line for a Baby Girl Birthday card in Ballerina, White Daisy & Charcoal. I used this sweet card from Becca Whitham. The Sweet Baby Stamp Set and Dies are retired, but still available in the Going Soon! section on my website, it’s listed as limited quantities so if you want it click here and get it before it’s gone!
I picked the Polka Dot paper from the Seasonal Mix-ins Paper Packet as the base of my card – like Becca I then die cut my wonky piece from a My Favorite Things Blueprint and ran the Ballerina Piece with my Alphabet Embossing Folder (you’ll also find it in the Going Soon section) All of my stamping (other than the striped balloon) was done in Charcoal Ink. I really like using a dark gray instead of black with the softer color of Ballerina. I couldn’t resist coloring in the cheek and toe nails with my Sugarplum Shimmer Pen.
Now it’s your turn to create something using the Tic Tac Toe Board…you can find all the guidelines for joining on our home page and there you’ll find the other projects from our talented Design Team. As a reminder if you use three or more colors you can link up at the Double Trouble Challenge and if using a Critter (of any kind) you can also link up at the Brown Sugar Challenge.
