A Little Birthday – Color Dare #214

Welcome back to another Color My Heart Color Dare challenge.  This week we are challenging you to use Black, Thistle, Pear and White Daisy in your creations.


I think I’m stuck on Halloween this year – those cute little monsters really grabbed my heart, but since my birthday card stash is a bit low I decided to reach for birthday stamps instead.

My card makes use of the new Uptown Fundamental and Whimsy Fundamental paper packets.  I found some new sketches to try over on Pinterest, I usually stick to our pattern books, but this pattern looked fun. If you’ve followed me for any length of time you know that I’m bow challenged so I want to again share a “stamping technique” that I learned from The Wizards Hangout.  You see that bow is actually formed from the button and piece of twine – Vicki has complete instructions on her blog if you click on the link to The Wizards Hangout you’ll be taken right to the instructions and of course an adorable card.

I’m going to link up to the following challenges:

Do you have any fun challenges that you participate in?  Leave me a comment with the link to the challenge blog and I’ll come check it out.

Thanks for stopping by remember to link up your creations at Color My Heart Color Dare before Thursday.



Jeepers Creepers – Color Dare #213

Welcome to another Friday!  This week at the Color My Heart Color Dare we are featuring the bright colors of the Jeepers Creepers Paper Packet.  Color Dare #213 features the bright new colors of our Adventure Pallet and will surely brighten up your projects.  I hope you’ll grab your inks and paper and link up.

I reached for one of my favorite sets combinations this month with the Jeepers Creepers Paper Packet and Monstrous Halloween.  This is the last card to share of my upcoming October card class.  Did you get registered?

When I was creating with this card I thought about adding a banner with the sentiment and then I thought – WAIT, it needs to be a speech bubble.  Between Thin-Cuts and my Cricut prepping for card classes has become a lot easier!

Thanks for stopping by now make your way over to the Color My Heart Color Dare blog where you’ll see some more artwork from the other design team members.  Make sure you leave a little love (comments) along the way…we like to know that you like what we’re doing and appreciate that you stop and visit!
