Color Dare #364

Happy Friday I’m back with another Design Team card for  Color My Heart Color Dare.   This week our challenge is to choose three colors from the Color Dare Grid.

No photo description available.

I love these colors all together and standing on their own, so it was a bit of a challenge for me to choose only 3, in the long run Eggplant, Peacock & Saffron were my choices.

The retired Documented paper packet had all the colors I needed and embellishments to match!

You can visit the Color My Heart Color Dare blog for all the information on how to play along as well as finding additional inspiration from the other Design Team members.

Snowflakes Glisten

My friend Debi (who was never going to do challenges) has been sharing the posts at Heart 2 Heart and I’ve been inspired to go take a peek at what she’s been up to and of course I decided that I needed to play along!

Since I was in the Coop early this morning and got a few things done that NEEDED done I discovered some extra play time so TWO blog posts in one day.

The Challenge for the week of October 22nd was called Glitter & Glam and since everyone knows that Blings My Thing how could I not play along?!  I knew right away that I wanted to use a big snowflake cut from Sugarplum Glitter Paper, I also knew that I wanted to use the barnwood paper from the Seasonal Mixins (such a fun packet of paper).  I turned to my trusty Love of Color Guide and found that Mink, Eggplant and Sugarplum would make a delightful color trio.  I also had some retired Eggplant shimmer ribbon so it made perfect sense to use it.  I sprinkled a few bitty and regular sparkles around the card to add a little more “Glam”.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my card…now I’m off to feed a calf and start the regular chores of my day!  BTW it’s 5:30am and I think it’s going to be a long day!

Friends – Color Dare #305

Happy Friday and welcome to another week of the Color My Heart Color Dare.  This week we are featuring  the colors: Bashful, Blossom & Eggplant.

I reached for the Documented Paper that was sitting on my desk just begging to be used.  It was my favorite paper packet from the Seasonal Expression and now it’s retiring at the end of August.  This paper packet has a quirky friendship stamp that goes with it that has some funny sentiments about friendship and some cute flowers too!

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!

For the Love of Crafting – Color Dare #304

Happy Friday and welcome to another week of the Color My Heart Color Dare.  This week we are featuring  the colors: Eggplant, Linen and Peacock.

I chose to pair the August Stamp of the Month, For the Love of Crafting, with the Fundamentals in Eggplant & Peacock.  My typewriter was stamped directly onto the Linen cardstock.  The sentiment was also stamped on Linen, but I fussy cut them (can you believe it) so I could pop them up individually.  Do you know what card kit this pattern was from?  The first one to tell me will get this card in the mail.

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 you have plenty of time to play!Image may contain: text

Unabashadly Stamp Lifted – Color Dare #212

Happy Friday…it’s time for a new Color Dare and if purples are your thing this is your week!  Color Dare #212 challenges you to use White Daisy, Black, Eggplant, Thistle and Pansy…sounds like a fun challenge to me!

I was spending  wasting some time on Pinterest when I ran across this card which I fell in love with for several reasons #1 it uses hexagons, #2 it has a simple sentiment #3 I could easily duplicate it.

My hexagons are stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento and Pansy.  When stamping with solid stamps it’s best to have your Versamat turned to the spongy side so you get good coverage.  The sentiment was stamped with Eggplant – it’s such a nice deep purple and that sentiment love the combined script & print!!  The flower is stamped in Thistle – it’s probably my favorite of all our purples.  I wanted to keep the look clean and simple so I just added touches of purple accent (a glitter gem in the center of the flower and a glitter heart at the end of the sentiment.

Now hop on over to the Color My Heart Color Dare Blog where you will find some other wonderful cards from the Design Team.  I love that we all have such different ideas.  Won’t you take some time and play along?  It’s super easy to link up your creation – all the instructions are right there on the sidebar of the blog.

Thanks for stopping by…see you next week.
