Do You Remember?

that time in September?  LOL!  That’s all I could think of after I wrote the title for my blog post!  I pulled out an oldie, but goodie when I made this card.  It took three of us crafting together to finally pull it off and NOW the scraps of Pemberly are gone.

Do you have a drawer of half used papers?  I challenge you to get them out and use them.  Someone would love to find a cheery card in their mailbox and it gives you more room to add new 🙂

It’s Official – Color Dare #200

I’m an official member of the Color My Heart Color Dare Design Team!  I’m super excited to start with Color Dare #200 which features Ruby, Colonial White and Sapphire and finds the Color Dare celebrating it’s fourth year!  What’s a celebration without prizes?  Read on to find out how you can win!

My card is an adaption from an sketch I had pinned from Freshly Made Sketches.  I reduced my card to 4.25 X 4.25 which is one of my favorite sizes to work with.  I took a Colonial White card base and added squares of Ruby Paper Fundamentals and a Sapphire Paper Fundamental Star cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge.  The sentiment is from a retired Close to My Heart constant campaign.  You can barely see it in the photo, but there is a piece of red shimmer trim under the pennant to give it a little added dimension.  The swirl sparkle is also retired, but I felt it gave the impression of fireworks dancing in the sky.

Now about those prizes:

  1. Our Diamond Award Winner will select a future color dare.
  1. Anyone who comments on ALL the Design Team entries –  this week will be put into a random draw for a pack of paper – winners choice. (Even if she is not able to post a project this week). For each 10 people who comment on all DT entries there will be one prize given. If we have 20 people comment on all entries then we will have 2 prizes, etc.

Make sure you stop by the Color Dare – you’ll find the links to all the Design Team Members Blogs so you can leave your comments and make sure to get your entry posted prior to next Thursday, June 7th to be eligible for the grand prize!

 

Nevermore – AHSC #126

It’s Monday so that means it’s time to reveal a new sketch at the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.  Next to Christmas, Halloween is probably one of my favorite holidays to make cards for.  I’ve never been into the “scary” side of things…more cutesy with a few bats and spiders thrown in along the way.

The first thing I did with this sketch is give it a twist. I’ve kept my packet of Nevermore paper on my desk for creating since the first of the month.  I’m finding if I focus on one paper each month it is nearly completely gone by the end of the month.  It also challenged me this month to make non-Halloween items with this terrific paper packet.

 

I wanted to get a good stash of Halloween cards ready to go in the mail next month so I looked at the new Halloween themed keys on the Artistry cartridge and found this terrific bat overlay – doesn’t it look like they are flying in front of a moon?

Items I used:

  • Nevermore Paper Packet X7198B
  • Magic Potions My Acrylix Stamp Set C1509
  • Artistry Cartridge Z3167
  • Green & Black Shimmer Trim Z3087/Z1809
  • Shin Han Markers
  • Enamel Stars – retired (you could purchase white and color them, which is what I’ll do when I deplete my supply)

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you’ll take the time to participate in the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and on Wednesday you can visit the blog to see all the terrific artwork from the Design Team that is sure to keep you inspired.
