I was really excited when I saw that Color Dare #264 was a monochromatic (for the most part) color scheme.  Then all I could think of was the Wayne Newton song “Red Roses for a Blue Lady” – where do things like that come from?  I wondered if I should make blue roses – then I started thinking about a sweater I had in college that was red with large blue roses on it…good grief will I ever get my card made?

I finally headed to my Pinterest boards where I found some inspiration here.  I really had to search the perfect Happy Birthday stamp and found it in a retired set (that is why I keep almost ALL of the stamps I buy) I also used the Short & Sweet stamp set one of my favorite sentiment sets and if it’s not in your collection it should be!

I cut my white card front 1/4 inch smaller than my card base.  I love the look that added layer gives to a card especially when it’s popped up with some Thin 3D Foam Tape.  When I started my card I initially thought I needed to draw lines to keep my sentiment straight, but then I had another idea…I took a thin strip (1/4 inch) of Washi Tape and taped my card down to my Versa Mat and started my first line of Happy Birthday in Crystal Blue, then I turned my mat and stamped in Pacifica and then turned it again and stamped it in Sapphire.  My sentiment was stamped in black and I sponged the edges of the banner with Crystal Blue ink.  I wrapped a piece of white twine twice and tied it in a knot under the Crystal Blue star which I cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge.  A scattering of black dots finished it off.

It’s Magical – Color Dare 201

Hi and welcome to another week of the Color My Heart Color Dare.  This week we are featuring colors from the Magical Papers – Black, Cranberry, Crystal Blue, Honey, Sapphire, Whisper and White Daisy.

If you know me well, or maybe even a little bit, you know that I am a Disney fanatic.  I don’t think he’ll ever admit it, but I think a little bit of the bug may have bitten my Wrangler wearing sweetheart!  Playing with these colors was not hard for me…deciding what I wanted to feature on my blog was!

I finally settled on this Thank You card that we’re creating at my Card Class this month.  The Magical Papers are so much fun to play with.  If I had to pick a favorite it would be a three way tie between the multi-colored hearts, the bold cranberry polka dots (it’s so Minnie) and the black camera’s which I didn’t use on this card.

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 until 9:00 CDT on Thursday!

Not Your Average Fireworks 

The Color My Heart Color Dare had one of my favorite color combos this week.  Pear, Lagoon, Crystal Blue and Thistle.

 

I already had my card in my head when I got an email that said I’d been selected to join the Color Dare as a Design Team member starting in July.


I loved this Firework Fun stamp set, but wanted to feature it in something other than the traditional red, white and blue.

My 6×6 card is from the Originals Card Confidence Program – On The Side.  Do you use our pattern books?  I love them!

Thanks for stopping by, take a minute to go visit the color dare and share what you can do with these fun colors!
