Color Dare #37--Juniper

This is my first time doing the Color My Heart Dare Challenge and I had a lot of fun! I created these two cards for the #37 Juniper challenge. I love Juniper and with the accent of black it really makes it POP!

On this first card I used the Honeycomb stamp set. I just can't get enough of this set! The message is from the Card Chatter--Sympathy Occasions set. As you can see, the messages can cover lots of occasions besides sympathy. 

Now this card shows off the Hello Tweety set. The vine is actually stamped on the inside of the card. I cut about 1 1/4" off the front of the card to expose the border where the vine is stamped. The two sections on the front are popped up with foam.

You can shop 24/7 on my website: Be sure to check out the While Supplies Last section, too. You can get some really great items at deep discounts!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!



  1. Lovely cards! Really like the Black with the Juniper color. Both of your designs are really nice.

    I just saw something about the Color My Heart Dare blog today, and I was thinking it was a great idea. Need to go create something with Juniper now. :)

  2. I love the honeycomb card. It is so striking!
    The little Juniper birdie is so cute.

  3. I love how you used Marie's inspiration card and turned it into your own both with the different placement of the honeycomb and the change from cocoa to black. Very chic. Your second card is also very lovely. The shorter front panel to expose the vine is a great technique. Thanks for joining us this week at Color My Heart. We hope to see you back with more inspiring work!!

  4. Wow! Both cards are great! I especially like the Hello Tweety card and you just might have inspired me to acquire that set with your lovely card. I hope you don't mind but I'll be pinning both of these lovely cards on pinterest ( thanks for playing along with us at Color My Heart Color Dare this week--we're glad you found us and hope you will play with us again soon!

  5. I agree with you about the pop! The hexies look fantastic like that! The color scheme certainly does the Tweety set well, too. Beautiful! Thanks so much for playing along with us this week, Michelle! :)

  8. Wow! Both of your cards are absolutely gorgeous. Those two are stamp sets I've been really wanting to get! You did a great job showing them off with a monochromatic color scheme! Thanks for joining in at Color My Heart.
