My card is a fancy fold card with my favorite combination of Ballerina & Black. The big bold flower flips open from a fancy fold card to display the first sentiment and then an additional sentiment is inside the card with room to write a message and sign your name.
I hope you’ll come play along with our short week, but extremely fun challenge. Don’t forget to link up and join the fun…everyone needs a little Double Trouble in their life!
As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago the Color My Heart Color Dare is adding some fun new challenges including this week’s Valentine’s Mood Board. What inspiration can you pull from the above photo?
When I looked at the picture the first thing that I noticed was it wasn’t all pink & red. The main color I saw was Lagoon with touches of pink, red and if you look really close it looks like there is a little cup of blue berries and that is where I got the inspiration to use Sapphire.
Don’t you just love that Lagoon cross hatch pattern? It’s from the Seasonal Mix-in Paper Packet…I tell you – YOU have to add it to your next order! The stitched scallop and stitched heart are both cut from Ballerina and there’s a little pop of Candy Apple in the banner and sentiment. I think this will make a perfect Valentine for my Wrangler Wearing Sweetheart!
OK, now it’s YOUR turn! The full details on how to join the fun is in the sidebar of our homepage. Our Weekly Challenges are open for two weeks and you have until February 14th to enter Challenge #328
Make sure you check
out what the other design team members have created and leave them a little
love (just as you love comments on your artwork – we love yours too)!
When I saw this weeks Atlantic Hearts Sketch I knew exactly what I was going to do. I love it when an idea just pops into my head and I can run with it.
As I mentioned in my previous post the Ribbon Warrior campaign is hitting me close to home and I’m a firm believer that support from friends & family makes a huge difference.
I chose a color palette from the Love of Color – Mint, Linen and Ballerina. The mint background was embossed with the rose embossing folder and a stitched circle was added in Linen – I then stamped the ribbon and cut with the matching thin cut – I made a banner and stamped Hope as my sentiment. I finished the card with some sparkles.
I have a dear friend in breast cancer treatment so this card is on it’s way to hopefully cheer her along her journey.
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.
It’s Color Dare Friday and here’s the 3-1-1 actually it’s challenge #311, but I’m feeling a tad giddy after struggling with these colors to get a card that I’m really in love with.
If you’d like to create with us this week, reach for all things Saffron, Peacock & Ballerina with an option of adding Gold.
If you haven’t added the September Stamp of the Month to your order yet this month, don’t wait a minute longer – if this is the only stamp set you buy this fall you will still be set to create all the way up to Christmas!
Now it’s your turn to create…all the information on how to join is located on The Color My Heart Color Dare Blog Post that you’ll find here. When you visit the home page, make sure you are leaving comments for each of the Design Team members – we work hard each week to bring you lots of different inspiration.
