Color Dare #57

Having won a color dare a couple weeks ago, I was asked to be a guest designer for the weekly Color My Heart Color Dare challenge!  This is such a fun challenge to be part of and am grateful to the awesome girls heading up the design team.

This week's challenge focuses on the two colors from the blue family:  Pacific and Sky.

Rules are easy-peasy ... make anything you want, featuring the colors for the challenge and Close to My Heart products.  Bonus points if it's all current products!  Only neutrals can be added to the projects, unless otherwise specified.

I typically lean to cards for these types of things and I can always need them for my stash!  So here it is:

It ended up being a bit more simple than I usually do, but I wanted to feature some cool new products and I failed to have any Sky cardstock! :0o  I know, right?!  So improvising and keeping up with "current" products, I stamped a background on the card using the Geometric Backgrounds MyAcrylix Stamp and then used an Artbooking CTMH Cricut Cartridge overlay to frame it up.  {BTW - if you have not gotten this cartridge yet, Oh-M-Gee!! You need to!! It rocks!! Between all 3 of the CTMH cartridges, I don't desire any other cartridges.} I topped the card off with a sentiment from one of the MyCrush stamps and blinged it up with the amazing Glitz Glitter Gel.

Hope you like it and get inspired to join this week's challenge with these colors!  Check out my website to get the products I used (listed below). Feel free to email me with questions or if you'd like to host/attend a workshop or home gathering.

  1. Awesome job as our Guest Designer, Denise! You put so many wonderful elements in this card--love the geometric background and the overlay frame for your card. Thanks for being our Guest Designer this week and providing such wonderful inspiration.

    1. Thanks Marie! Hopefully over the next couple of months I can get some time to participate in more challenges. Some great color combos & inspiration from everyone lately! Love it!!

  2. Denise, great job the card! I love the way you used the background stamp, as a background, but not the entire card background! Thanks for designing a sample this week.
