Color Dare #370

Happy Friday I’m back with another Design Team card for  Color My Heart Color Dare.   This week our challenge is Browns & only 1 Splash of Color

After some clarification on the browns in the Close to My Heart Color Palette, I made a fall card featuring the colors, Toffee, Espresso & Glacier. I’ve seen so many of the plaid pumpkins and decided that a pretty plaid of Glacier & Toffee reminded me of a flannel shirt that I would buy for my dad.

I first stamped the Build a Plaid on a piece of white c/s then stamped and die cut the pumpkin. I layered it on a circle that I stamped with the Thankful, Grateful, Blessed Sentiment repeatedly in Espresso Ink. I added a few retired embellishments in Espresso and Glacier to finish off the card.

Color Dare #368

Happy Friday I’m back with another Design Team card for  Color My Heart Color Dare.   This week our challenge is to choose any colors inspired by the Horn of Plenty.

I had so much fun picking the fall colors for this card…I settled for cardstock in Peacock and Ruby, some papers from the mix-in paper packet and an assortment of stamp sets.

The z-fold card is attached to a flat fold and when it extends you find a gift card pocket. It was quite easy to put together and still packed a little surprise. My hubby thought the coffee rings looked like they were from a shot glass – shhh, don’t tell him the Craft-Coop is where I keep my stash.

Color Dare #366

Happy Friday I’m back with another Design Team card for  Color My Heart Color Dare.   This week our challenge is a fan favorite Tic Tac Toe!

I choose to use one of the papers from the Hawthorn paper packet and although I was going for the third column of Paprika, Pebble & Sapphire there’s a little Sage & Saffron thrown in with the leaves.

Color Dare #364

Happy Friday I’m back with another Design Team card for  Color My Heart Color Dare.   This week our challenge is to choose three colors from the Color Dare Grid.

No photo description available.

I love these colors all together and standing on their own, so it was a bit of a challenge for me to choose only 3, in the long run Eggplant, Peacock & Saffron were my choices.

The retired Documented paper packet had all the colors I needed and embellishments to match!

I had fun looking through paper packets trying to figure out what I was going to use when I ran across Flirty – I believe it was a paper packet that was released during my first CTMH convention in Dallas.

I combined some old with new combining a new stamp set with an old paper & embellishments. I used New England Ivy & Raspberry Ink and although it’s not a perfect match the color works well together.

Color Dare #360

Happy Friday I’m excited to be back on the Design Team for the  Color My Heart Color Dare.   This week our challenge is to pick a row and play Tic Tac Toe!

I chose the Top Row Pansy, Heather and Sugarplum – although these three colors retired from the CTMH lineup on August 31 – I couldn’t resist playing with them one last time.

I used the Dandelion Wishes stamp set and chose to have some seeds floating across the light side of the Sugarplum cardstock. I loved blowing dandelions as a kid, but not so much as an adult when there is a field of yellow in my grass.
