I’m a little late to the car show, but I noticed that this stamp set is still available in a limited quantity and it makes a fabulous masculine card.
Don’t adjust your computer this card is done in all tones of gray. I used the mix-in paper packet from the fall (it’s also still available and such great colors). I stamped the ink blot stamp set in Pewter second generation and then stamped the truck in Charcoal over the top.
If you struggle with masculine cards, I’d suggest working with a monochromatic color scheme and avoid the floral B&T!!
Thanks for stopping by won’t you take a minute to leave me your favorite masculine color combo in the comment section.
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.
Lately I’ve been exposed to things that really resonate with how I’m feeling about life. I think the world needs to slow down just a bit and people need to take time to let others know you care.
I have a friend that was needing a little extra love and I wanted her to know that I cared. I think a card is like a paper hug. Is there someone that you could send some love to?
Be the Mr. Rogers of your neighborhood. I challenge you to drop a card in the mail – it’s the best 50 cents you’ll spend all day. It will make you feel better and the person receiving it will too!
Happy Friday and welcome to another week of the Color My Heart Color Dare. This week we are featuring the colors: Willow, Goldrush, Emerald, Black, Pewter, Pebble, Charcoal and White Daisy.
How are you liking the changes to the Color Dare? Two weeks should give you plenty of time to get a card made and linked up to our challenge.
I did a fun card with the Cats & Bats papers and stamps from the Cats & Bats Scrapbooking Collection. The front of my card is cut down 2 inches which leaves a little bit of the inside of the card peeking through. I used the die cut BOOO! to hid a few of the inside images. Although from the front my BOOO! is stamped in Pebble it was actually layered on a piece of Gold Rush so that adds a bit of intrigue to the inside of the card as well.
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 for two weeks so get your cards posted by 9:00 CDT on Thursday, October 5th!
While at the homepage – check out what the other design team members have created and leave them a little love (comments make our day)!
Thanks for stopping by…have a fantastic weekend!
