Our Colour Dare Challenge for #486 is the fun 3-2-1 challenge with a twist. You need to use 3 colours (with one being the card base), 2 neutrals and 1 metallic or glitter in Silver, Gold or Copper. When you are creating for more than one challenge please make sure your project meets our requirement. Most importantly - have fun! Go to the link for Colour Dare #486 and add your entry. When you submit your entry you must provide a link to your post, not just to your blog in general. There are LOTS of ways to enter either a Blog Post or post to an online gallery (Facebook, Pinterest, SplitCoast Stampers, or Instagram).
I decided to use all cardstock (instead of printed papers) because CTMH have a cardstock carnival sale on at the moment with cardstock bundles being up to 30% off... so all my colours are using cardstock.
My Three, Two, one is as follows:
I cut the Wild berry cardstock to 8.5 x 4.5 inches and folded in half with dark side out (lighter inside) to create a card that will fit inside the White Cards & Envelopes Value Pack. I always have extra envelopes as I give cards without envelopes often = when I stick on the top of a parcel or something.
I had a team challenge to use a stamp set 5 ways so I was keen to create a card that showed a variation of what I would usually do... so I stamped the note pad from Smarty Pants Stamp + Thin Cuts on Wisteria, Peach and Mink in Black ink. Then I trimmed them up and rounded the one corner of each by hand... my scissor work could do with some practice!!
After I had cut out the note papers, I stamped the HAPPY, happy and happy stamps from the For All Occasions stamp set - it has 3 of them... so I stamped each colour a different font. I then used black ink to stamp the Just a happy note (from smarty pants) onto Wild Berry Cardstock... I thought it was a bit fuzzy around the edges and thought it was my stamping but looking at the carrier sheet for the stamp set it showed it was intentionally fuzzy looking around the edges... which you can see above.
I put the happy note on with 3D foam tape and used the shimmer trim to finish the edge off and add some sparkle.
Thanks so much for dropping by to check out my latest project. Hope you can join in the Colour My Heart Colour Dare Challenge #486. I'm really interested to hear what you think about my card, so I'd love you to leave a comment. See you again soon, subscribe to my blog so you don't miss a challenge.
