Color Dare #20 - Smoothie, Olive, New England Ivy, & Cranberry

Hi! Welcome to a new Color Dare! Congrats to last week's winner, Cassandra Bennett! She made this cute Santa card:

This week's colors are, again, complementary, and again, shades of green and red. But I can't get enough of them! The idea is to use our Pear & Partridge pack for this challenge.

New England Ivy

I used the Pear & Partridge papers and rub-ons, and the Christmas Love stamp set.

Here are some special gift tags from our guest designer, Jody Gustafson. She put Ghirardelli chocolates inside! Isn't that a clever and thoughtful gift tag idea?

I'm giving bonus points to anyone who uses Pear & Partridge for their project this week!

Now get to it. Create something fabulous and link it up here! View the side bar for our complete rules.

Color Dare # 19 still open!

Hi! I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving. I know it's a busy time for everyone. It was for me especially. I made a feast yesterday! So, I am giving an extra week to play along with the complementary colors challenge. Cranberry, Hollyhock, and Sweet Leaf.

Color Dare #19 - Cranberry, Hollyhock, and Sweet Leaf

Thanks for visiting Color My Heart for this week's color dare! Congrats to Jody Gustafson! She is the winner of last week's trendy challenge using Flirty, Avonlea, and La Belle Vie.

Our colors for this week are complementary colors:
Sweet Leaf

I made a CASE study card. I am giving bonus points to anyone who makes a Christmas card, layout or project using these colors!
Here is a Christmas card from our guest designer, Joanne Barnes. It's so pretty. The pink on red looks fantastic and the sentiment is perfectly balanced color-wise. The pink layer underneath looks great too. The red layer on top of the green layer looks nice with a white layer in between. It also ties in the white ribbon.
Please upload your own creations and play along. Read the side bar for complete rules! Have fun!

Color Dare #18 - Flirty Raspberry, La Belle Vie Pink, & Avonlea Teal

Hey everybody! Welcome to the color dare for Close To My Heart's exclusive color pallette! You're in for a surprise today. But first, congratulations to Joanne Barnes. She won the color challenge from last week with her card using Smokey Plum, Sweet Leaf and Sunset! Technically, she broke the rules by adding an extra color (Honey, maybe?), but I'm just smitten with this card. I think it's the ribbon, or maybe the cute little coffee beans. Anyway, I made an exception for you, Josie, just this once. ;)

Now on to our surprise: I am using three kit-exclusive colors for our dare this week:
Flirty Raspberry
La Belle Vie Pink
Avonlea Teal

I know these aren't available in inks, but they are available in cardstock if you have the kits, and they are available in B&T's. If you don't have the kits, you could make something with the B&T samples if you have those. I try to get an extra one to use for emergencies, especially if I haven't ordered the kit yet.

I made a card altering a pattern from Originals:

Our guest designer, Annette Clark, made this card using the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge:
What a neat card! She makes the colors look so bright and cheery.

Now get crafting! Check out our rules on the side bar to play along. I'm so excited to see what you come up with for this challenge!

Hi! Welcome to Color My Heart. Thanks for visiting. A big congrats goes out to Annette Clark for winning the color dare last week!

This week's colors are triadic, secondary colors:

Smokey Plum
Sweet Leaf

I made a cheesy little card with these colors, using a number of different paper packs. Check out my blog if you don't know which ones. We're also doing a blog hop starting at 9:00 pacific.
Next we have a special treat from our guest designer, the winner from last week, Joyce Lau:
What a gorgeous card! I do admit, it is better than mine. Check out Joyce's blog to see details.

Now it's your turn. Check out the rules on the sidebar to see how to play along. I can't wait to see what you come up with. I know it will be a challenge for you all, but you can do it!
