Fall Leaves – Color Dare #317

Happy Friday!  This week the Color My Heart Color Dare is featuring  the colors: Pomegranate, Sapphire, Saffron and Gold.

Recently we took a Sunday drive with friends along Chuckanut drive in Northwest Washington to see the fall colors which inspired me to recreate the memories on a card.

I used papers from the Grateful Heart paper packet and the November Stamp of the Month Seasonal Trees.  I love the trees with the accents of leaves, branches, bird nests, bird houses and ornaments…you just have to check it out!

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!

September SOTM meets Color Dare #311

It’s Color Dare Friday and here’s the 3-1-1 actually it’s challenge #311, but I’m feeling a tad giddy after struggling with these colors to get a card that I’m really in love with.

If you’d like to create with us this week, reach for all things Saffron, Peacock & Ballerina with an option of adding Gold.

If you haven’t added the September Stamp of the Month to your order yet this month, don’t wait a minute longer – if this is the only stamp set you buy this fall you will still be set to create all the way up to Christmas!

Now it’s your turn to create…all the information on how to join is located on The Color My Heart Color Dare Blog Post that you’ll find here.   When you visit the home page, make sure you are leaving comments for each of the Design Team members – we work hard each week to bring you lots of different inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by!

Nothing basic about this circle card featured in October’s Just the Basics card class.  I love shaped cards and the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge makes easy work of cutting them out.

I started with a Saffron card base and stamped the wreath in Memento Black Ink for use with my Shin Han markers.  It’s difficult to see in the photo, but there is some Gold Shimmer Brush used on the feathers for a little sparkle.  I finished off the card with some Gold Shimmer Trim and Gold Sparkle Gems.

I hope you’ll take a minute to leave me a comment and make sure you come back and visit again soon.

It’s Pumpkin Season – Color Dare #211

Did you miss me last week?  Sometimes when it rains it pours, sometimes the sunshines and once in a while you give up your craft room to your hunky husband so he can put the ceiling in.  Seriously I missed not playing in the Color Dare last week…talk about colors right up my alley!

Well, this week there’s another fun Dare #211 requires the use of Saffron, Poppy, Fern and Colonial White (oh yes, I love that creamy white that so often seems forgotten).  I also learned about a new challenge Stampin’ Royalty sounds like it might be right up this Princess’ Alley so I’m linking up there too!

Perfect for pumpkins and of course other things too…don’t forget to go check out the other Design Team Cards at the Color My Heart Color Dare Blog.

This card features the pumpkin from September’s Stamp of the Month Blessed Beyond Measure and it’s a Cricut compatible stamp set (yippee).  See that panel of leaves?  It’s another stamp from the same set just random stamped in Fern ink and the Fundamentals Enchantment collection another new favorite!

I’m not a huge fan of ribbons because I can’t tie a bow to save my life (other than the ones on my shoes), but one of my consultant friends suggested that I get some twine and just separate the ends after tying it in a knot.  Guess what?  It works!  A couple of sequins later and I called this card done!

There’s an entire week for you to stop by and link up your creation at the Color Dare Blog.  It’s pumpkin season let someone know you’re thinking of them.

Thanks for stopping by.
