Paper Fundamentals Meets Color My Heart Dare

It's been a while since I've done a color challenge from Color My Heart Color Dare. I decided to use the Paper Fundamentals from the Adventure collection Z2032.

I don't use these papers near enough and they deserve attention. 

So here is my card for Color Dare #153:

  • Hollyhock Ink Stamp Pad Z2128
  • Sunset Ink Stamp Pad Z2164
  • Olive Ink Stamp Pad Z2137
  • White Daisy

The stamp I used was the versatile "Framed" Stamp of the Month for August.

Notice the red line around the 3 frames. This indicates there is a Cricut cut to make life easier for you, because that is how we roll!!

You can get this D-size Stamp of the Month set for a deal with a minimum qualifying purchase! Add the stamp set to your cart on this page at full retail price or, with your qualifying order, add it at checkout for the promotional price. Buy $50 of product and receive this stamp for $5. That is a savings of $12.95!!

Set of 12
Recommended My Acrylix® Blocks:
1" × 3½" (Y1002), 2" × 3½" (Y1009)

Stamp images outlined in red coordinate with the Cricut® Artistry Cartridge (Z3167). This is a new cartridge from Close To My Heart!

The little embellishments I used at the top and bottom will be retiring August 31. Many items are retiring before the new catalog makes it's debut on September 1, 2015. You can shop for these items in a special spot of the shopping cart. To view these items click here:  Retiring Items

Green & Blue Epoxy Bubbles Z1806

Here are the details for the starburst card: 
  • White Daisy 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 from a value pack X254
  • Hollyhock herringbone pattern 5 1/4 X 4
  • 3 colors (Olive, Hollyhock, Sorbet) cut 1 3/4 X 4 cut each piece diagonally forming triangles
  • white Daisy cardstock cut to 5 X 2 3/4 to adhere the diagonal pieces onto. Find the center and place the points at the edge. After all pieces are in place flip it over and trim away the excess. Mount on pink herringbone.
  • cut a 1/2 X 4 piece to cover the points.
  • Add a strip of White Shimmer tape Z3024 next to green 1/2 strip 
  • I stamped the frame in Hollyhock and the sentiment in Olive
  • An additional piece of Olive fundamental paper to add to the frame was added.
I love these challenges. I need inspiration and bit of a kick in the ....

Thank you Color My Heart Color Dare for the challenges!
