Happy Times

Color Dare Challenge #192

Happy Times! That is the name of the Paper pack from Close To My Heart for National Scrapbook Month.  I used Fern, Canary, Cotton Candy, Glacier, White Daisy and Gold, the colors in the Happy Times Paper Pack.  The flower like design from Ornate Blossoms was heat embossed with Gold Embossing powder. I then colored it in with the inks mentioned above using a Blending Pen.  The "leaves" were stamped on Fern cardstock with Fern ink.  Paper is from the Happy Times paper pack.  I love the Gold Foil!

You can get the exclusive Happy Times paper packet for FREE With a qualifying purchase of $60. This fun paper packet, which is available for one month only, features floral designs, gold foil details, and more! You can also purchase this exclusive paper packet at full retail for $14.95 with no purchase requirement. Get the coordinating D-size stamp set, My Acrylix® Happy Times, for $17.95. Together with the Happy Times paper packet, this stamp set will help keep your precious memories vivid and bright in the pages of your scrapbook or on your cards.

Orange Orange

This weeks Color Dare Challenge #191 is all about orange!  I have been coming up with cards using butterflies and the Your Own Kind of Wonderful for this month's card kit so added an orange one to the group.  I used Sorbet, Sunset and Poppy.  The colors look so much better in person!  I heat embossed the three butterflies in white then used sponge daubers to add the three colors.  It was mounted on orange ombre paper from Sangria.  It is embellished with coral sequins and the sentiment was stamped with Poppy ink..

Orange is not a color that I use often, so thank you Color Dare for this challenge.  I am enjoying the challenges!  Thank you design team for the inspiration!
