Just Treats Card ~ Color Dare 311

How do you like the colors of this challenge? The Design Team at Color My Heart hopes you will join in the fun and create any paper craft using the colors of this challenge and share it on our home page. Tell your friends to join the fun, too!

I'm also sharing this card on the Heart 2 Heart Challenge Blog for their Sweet Treats challenge. Check it out!

Color My Heart Color Dare was started in 2011 by Sarah Stone. Sarah is no longer part of the Design Team but still participates with the challenges. I discovered Color Dare in 2012 when I was searching for a challenge to try out. I really liked the idea of being challenged by using certain colors. That made part of the decision making process of creating a paper craft easy! When a Design Team Call went out later that year I applied and was selected to join the team! It's been fun working with a variety of team members over the years and recently I became the moderator of our team. We have a fantastic team and I love working and creating with these gals. Would you like to join us? We're very supportive and a fun group. If you would like to be considered for our team contact me at:

I love the Ballerina and Peacock but adding Saffron was a challenge for me. So I dove into my Make It from Your Heart How-to book for inspiration and came up with this card.....and I love it!

Ok a bit of honestly here. The banner on the right with the heart.....that's an add-on to the design because I made a tiny bit of an ink smear on the card front. *sigh. Either I started the card all over again or I needed to cover it up. The banner and heart was my solution.

Notice the shine on the candy? I put some Liquid Glass on the candy to make it look like cellophane wrappers! The color on the candy is 1st generation on the Ballerina but 2nd generation on the Peacock and Saffron. I also swiped some gold shimmer across the word friends to make it stand out a bit. the letters in Thankful were colored with a touch of ink from the lid of the stamp pad and a water brush.

The stamped images are from the Just Treats set. This is our September Stamp of the Month and will only be available until the end of this month!

  1. Love your card! I really like how you added the doodling around the liquid glass to the candies.

  2. I found Saffron with Ballerina hard too... you did a lovely job. I like your liquid glass candy and the cover up glitter banner.

    1. Thanks, Sandra. I love it when I can include those little extra touches.
