I am delighted to share that I've been selected to be part of the next six month Color Dare Design Team!! I had such an amazing experience during my six month term with Stacey's Curtain Call Crew that I needed something to fill the void. Enter, The Colour Dare :) Every Wednesday a new Color Dare will be posted on The Color Dare blog, and the Design Team will post samples for your inspiration. This week's Color Dare is as follows:
Color Dare 75
Pretty in Pink
I paired this week's colours with Mercy's Sketch #86 and came up with the above card. The pink was really throwing me for a loop as the other colours are stereotypical "Christmas colours". After digging through my stamps, I came across my Sweet 'n Sassy Snow Friends stamp and found the perfect solution to my pink issue - the heart LOL! Since I don't own any Cherry Cobbler yet, I used Real Red instead. I glittered the brim of his hat, her ear muff and the snow, though it is quite hard to see in the picture. I also flipped my button over so you could see more of the black, added a few pearls and it was good to go.
That being said, it took me forever to make this card. Sheesh!! It was like having to learn calculus with a brain that doesn't do math LOL! Think my mojo was having too much fun up in the trees over at the Wild Play course (see prior post) and decided to stay on the Island. I will definitely need to get back into the swing of things now that the kids are back in school (today is their first full day...happy sigh.....LOL!) so I can shake off the dust and coax my mojo out from the trees and back into my craft room.
The rest of this term's Color Dare team has lots of inspiration for you. You can check out their creations here:
- Glenda Wyatt at Paper, Scissors, Rocks
- Heater Prince at Princess Scrapper Stamper
- Joan Jeffery at JJ's Creations
- Melissa Hubert at My Paper Obsession
- Nance Lempinen-Leedy at Canopy Crafts
- Riley Fitzgerald at Stampin' With Riley (our leader)
We'd love you to join us! Simply create a card using this week's colours and add your card to InLinkz on the The Colour Dare Blog. If you are uploading to a public gallery, please make sure to use the keyword CD75. Each week, Riley will select a Featured Stamper and showcase your card on her blog, as well as noting two honorable mentions.
It feels good to be back and blogging. Hopefully the mojo will come flowing back and I'll have something to show for my first kids-at-school so I get to play day LOL! Have a great day!
