The Color My Heart Color Dare was to use CTMH Smokey Plum, Gold Rush and Olive, perfect colors for fall, which means I can do another fall card before we are bombarded by the winter holidays!
I had to use Gypsy in place of the Smokey Plum, since I don't have it in my stash yet and I also substituted Goldrush with Autumn Terracotta. I The background stamps for the flags were from my stash as well as the lower leaf. The circle leaf 'button' is CMTH Petite Perks.
Can you believe it's getting to be that time of year again? The holidays are coming upon us fast! I've been putting off Christmas/Holiday cards as long as I could, trying to enjoy everything about fall, but that time is here, I can no longer deny it! I do love the holidays though and I'm glad it's time to enjoy it.
Recently, I had a home gathering and my hostess took an Idea Book with her to work to share with her co-workers. After looking at the Idea Book, one of her fellow employees decided she liked the card featured on page 79.
She did not, however, want to actually make the card! She was a very sweet woman, who wants to give handmade gifts, without having to actually do the work herself! Lucky for me, she asked me to make them for her and I got my first commissioned job! It was a pleasure to make them for her and I love how they turned out!
Inks used are Desert Sand, Juniper and Ruby. Cardstock trim was made using chocolate, juniper and topped with Red Shimmer trim. I used pink Glitter Gems as an added embellishment, since the darker shades look red. I am going to add a piece of backing for her to attach after adding the candy of her choice.
Thanks for looking and feel free to contact me if you are interested in ordering supplies, or hand made items!
I made this card for a co-worker who recently got married. I just happened to stumble across the Creatalicious challenge looking for wedding themed cards, so I lucked out! It's not traditional, but I love the colors and how it turned out!
The paper is Fancy Pants from my stash, as well as the pearls, flowers and ribbon. The heart is Close To My Heart, Irresistibles inked with sorbet; the sentiment is black pigment ink from CTMH.
