A Woodsy Birthday – Color Dare #299


Happy Friday and welcome to another week of the Color My Heart Color Dare.  It’s my favorite color challenge of the month – Tic Tac Toe!  All such marvelous colors and I chose to take the diagonal starting in the upper left:  Juniper, New England Ivy & Glacier.


No automatic alt text available.

I started with a Glacier base card  which I scored along the top and stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment in New England Ivy.  The papers from the Fresh Air collection adorn the bottom of the card and I finished it with a wood tree and lots of sparkles.

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!

Kindness – Color Dare #296

Already one week into June…time needs to S-L-O-W down!

This week the Color My Heart Color Dare Design Team is featuring the colors Toffee, Juniper and Pomegranate.  Such pretty colors to work with.


I’m trying to build my stash of thank you and birthday cards, but it seems like it’s a never ending battle!  Like I said last week I really like the In My Heart card making kit sentiments so here I am again with a different layout.  The wood panel at the bottom of the card might be a far stretch at Toffee, but I just had to use it.  I also stamped the small THANKS banner in Toffee and cut it out and layered it over a piece of wood-grain banner which I stamped in Juniper and then trimmed.  I tied a little bit of Juniper Thick Twine into a knot and frayed the ends to add some dimension.

Heartfelt – Color Dare #295

Wow, that was a quick week!  I can’t believe it’s Friday already and time for another Color My Heart Color Dare.  This week the Design Team is challenging you to use Glacier, New England Ivy & Nutmeg.


I really like the sentiments from the In My Heart card making Kit.  I stamped the pine bough in 2nd generation New England Ivy randomly on the top of my card base and then layered on papers and a zip-strip from the Fresh Air papers.  If you’re looking for a masculine paper pack this might be your go to!  That little heart in the corner is a wooden complement and made me so happy.
