Oh Deer! – Color Dare #223

Happy Friday and welcome to another week of the Color My Heart Color Dare.  This week we are featuring  the colors of the Oh Deer! paper packet.


I combined the sketch from Mojo Monday #477 with the Oh Deer Papers, Oh Deer Complements and a little Sea Glass Glitter Paper for this elegant card.  I think the Complement packs are somewhat overlooked for card making, but here I added one of the stickers (the jingle bell strip) and one of the Kraft dies (the stag).  My card was husband tested and approved 🙂

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!

While at the homepage – check out what the other design team members have created and leave them a little love (comments make our day)!

Do you use the complements available with the paper packets?  Leave me a comment and let me know.  Thanks for stopping by I’d love to see your artwork in the Color Dare.




Playing Match Maker – Mojo Monday 394 meets Color Dare 138

I loved the colors from this weeks Color My Heart Color Dare and couldn’t resist playing along with the Mojo Monday # 394 sketch, so since I had other things on my “to do” list today I combined them.

One of my favorite stamp sets is the Charming Chevrons and I love to match them with the Chevron Sparkles…I paired it with the Life Is Sweeter M size stamp, it just looks like those Chevrons are pointed right at the sentiment.  I used a little more of the Brushed Paper Packet and separated the papers with two strips of the skinny washi tape from the Carnival Washi Tape in the new Seasonal Expressions 2.  I think it’s one of my favorite embellishments from the new catalog.

I’m really enjoying playing in the Color My Heart Color Dare, it’s taking my stamping out of the box you should follow the link and play along too.

Thanks for stopping by!
