Welcome to our Color Dare for the week. This week the Color My Heart group is challenging you with using Barn Red for your creations! It's a good lesson in monochromatic color design, so get your mojo going and let's create! As usual, neutral colors are ok to use with the featured color.
I decided to use one of our Circle Spin cards and a couple of the M sized stamps. This paper from the Huntington paper pack was a perfect fit for this dare. Barn Red with Champagne! On the images I used a water pen and a touch of ink to give it a bit of color. The border is from the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge to mimic the scallops on the gift. A bit of Almond Glitz Glitter Gel adds a nice tone to go with the neutral Champagne color. Oh, the images are stamped on a piece of scalloped cardstock, courtesy of our 2" Scallop Punch!
Here is what it looks like on the other site of the circle. When you finish your Circle Spin card, you wind it up by twisting the circle around and around then close the card. When the card is opened, the circle will spin! A nice little surprise to make the card more special.
Welcome to our Blog Hop! This month we're featuring our Stamp of the Month for December 2013 called Special Care. If you've hopped over from Jen Rubio's blogyou're doing fine. Click the link at the end of this post to continue on the hop. The hop is one big loop, but if you'd like to see a list of all the consultants participating this month click here.
Special Care is a set of 6 tag type images that you'll have a lot of fun using in your crafting projects! Here I've sponged a background on the image to go along with the Washi Tape you see in the background. Washi Tape makes crafting SO quick and easy! A piece of frayed burlap ribbon and a couple of black pearls finish the look. Oh…the image is popped up with some 3D Foam, too. Several of the images even have a coordinating Cricut shape making it even easier!
Here is what the entire set looks like. Aren't those cute images! Special Care is only available Dec. 1-31, 2013. You can get this set for only $5 with a qualifying order! Now, order early this month if you want it to arrive before Christmas!

Hello and welcome to this week's Color Dare! Over at Color My Heart we have a fun color challenge this week: Autumn Terracotta, Barn Red and Olive. Perfect for the fall colors!
I made this card sponging the colors around the edges in a block pattern. I masked off the neighboring sections and sponged each square individually. Then I started stamping! I used Cocoa ink as a nice contrast to the Dare colors.
Here is a list of the products used:
--Colonial White & Cocoa cardstock
--Cocoa, Autumn Terra Cotta, Baarn Red & Olive inks
Hello! I had a bit of time to myself today and decided to use some leftover snowflakes I had cut for another project. I saw there was still just enough time to get in on this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge and the two ideas seemed like a perfect fit!
Now here is a little secret I'll share. The two snowflakes on the left edge were actually a tiny bit damaged. The tips on that side didn't look very good, so I snipped them off and lined up the edge against the fold! There are many ways to work around imperfections in crafting!
The card base is Colonial White and the patterned paper is from the Frosted paper pack. I cut the snowflakes using our Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge and added a Mocha pearl to the center. Our Holiday Tags stamp set is a must have because it has messages for occasions throughout the year! I am constantly using this set!
I can't get enough of this tree set. It's called Always Grateful and has 3 gorgeous tree images that work for any season!
Here I've created a card for the Color My Heart Dare: Smokey Plum, Goldrush & Olive. It's a beautiful color combo, don't you think? Check it out.
There are no layers on this card. First I made a mask to cover the outer edges of the card front. The bottom mask had a curved edge so it would look like snow drifts. Next I sponged Goldrush and Smokey Plum inks for a background, leaving a bright spot for a setting sun. The tree is stamped in Smokey Plum and the message (from Holiday Tags) is stamped in Olive. Finally, I lightly smeared some Stardust Glitz Glitter Gel for a glistening snow effect. I love how this turned out!
