Color Dare #272 ~ Traditional Christmas Colors

Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week for Color Dare #272 we are doing a Christmas Extravaganza this whole month. We will feature creations using Traditional Colors.  For this challenge use Only Reds & Greens, White Daisy and/or your choice of one Neutral.

So I needed to create a few tags and thought they would be great for this challenge.

I slimply used Ruby, New England Ivy and White Daisy cardstock.  I used a touch of gold embossing on the “&”  and I did use gold shimmer on the Joy tag, however, it is not showing up.

Now it is your turn to create! Just create a project (card, layout or other craft project) using this weeks colors.  Then link them to the Color My Heart Blog ~ Color Dare #272 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday December 28, 2017 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Happy Crafting!

For this card I used several images you can find on page 24 (#m2762c8a, #m2762c6c, & #m2762pf7).  I used some scraps I cut like waves or snow drifts, then inked them with Crystal Blue.  I used the confetti/sparkles from Birthday Sparkles to make the snow by masking off sections.

I used the Merry Christmas Stamp set again with Crystal Blue ink.

I thought it would be fun to create some small valentine’s cards that my son may want to use for his school Valentine’s Day.

I started with a 2″ by 2 3/4″ white card base.  I stamped and watercolored then matted on a 2 1/4″ by 3″ color cardstock.  Then on the back side I added another white card base with to/from and happy Valentine’s Day.

If you love this stamp set you will want to be sure you purchase it this month as it is only available the month of December and if you spend $50 on qualifying product it could be yours for $5!!
