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.

Our challenge for the next two weeks 10/7-10/20 is masking with the fun twist of adding something you’d find in a pumpkin patch for example: a pumpkin, a scarecrow, or maybe even a trick or treater!

Have you ever been to a masquerade ball? I think that’s how my card must have felt with all these sticky notes stuck to it. I use sticky notes that are full page sticky so I get good coverage for my masks. I was watching a video from Jennifer McGuire and she talked about masking paper and I think I might have to give it a try – it appears a bit larger than my 3X3 notes. Her card inspired me and they aren’t completely alike, but they are quite similar.
So I started my card by cutting a stitched rectangle from the largest of the Close to My Heart Stitched Rectangle Thin Cuts. I then placed it in my Misti and placed a circle die where I wanted my spotlight area to be. I then placed my pumpkin and stamped him several times in intense black ink and then colored it in with my Tri-blend markers. After it was colored I added the sentiment and placed the masks. When you use a die cut for a mask you end up with a small shadow of white around the image, but I didn’t care. Then I started by swirling Sweet Leaf ink all over inside the circle mask. To finish things off I added two bitty sparkles (one to each end of the sentiment) because a little bling never hurt anything.
So what do you think of my finished card? Do you think this is a project you would try?
