Color Dare #241 ~ Willow, Lemon, Raspberry & White

This is the last color dare for April! Can you believe the month has flown by so fast?!! With the first color dare in May we are making some adjustments to the challenges so be sure to come back and check it out! In the meantime here is what I created for this challenge.

I used our Happy Birthday Thin Cuts and love how the colors pop against the willow background paper. TIP: Use a glue pen to dab spots of glue on the back of the words. Less messy and does a great job.  I used a marker to draw the balloon strings and tied some twine in a bow. Easy Peasy! TIP: If you're a card maker you'll love our Value Packs of cards and envelopes. They come in White or Colonial White and you get 50 cards and envelopes in each Value Pack for only $14.95!

All products are Close To My Heart:
  • Stamp Set: Happy for You (balloons)
  • Paper pack: Some Kinda Wonderful
  • Thin Cuts Happy Birthday
  • Cardstock: Raspberry, Lemon, White Daisy
  • White Cards and Envelopes Value Pack
  • ShinHan Markers: Vivid Green
  • White Twine
If you need a consultant I'd be happy to help.
If you'd like to BE a consultant I can help with that, too.

Now it's your turn to create a paper craft using these colors. You must you only and all of these colors but if you don't have the exact color you can substitute something close, just don't add any new colors. More details for sharing are in the post on our home page.

Happy Creating!

  1. Love the bright and cheerful Happy Birthday!

  2. Love that background paper, and these colors were so easy to work with. Was looking for a hint in your products used what you used on your balloons for the texture...I'm assuming that you stamped your balloons because they have a stamping kind of texture and great idea of drawing in your balloon strings. Bright and pretty card.

    1. Sue I stamp rolled the balloons to create the texture. Then I fussy cut them out. I forgot to mention that in my post.
