I Double Dare Ya!

I am posting 2 cards which each use 2 challenges: the sketch challenge from splitcoaststampers, and the Color Dare. Once again, I am relying on my photo-shooting skills instead of my hubby. Oh well! All card stock, stamps, ink, and accessories are from my beloved Stampin' Up!

Last week's Color Dare called for tempting turquoise, Bermuda Bay and crushed curry. The sketch was simple and clean. I used a floral image from Eastern Blooms, and a sentiment from Thank You Kindly. The dsp is from Razzleberry Lemonade. It's hard to see, but I added some rhinestones to the flowers...and of course, Ribbon!!

This weeks Color Dare could have looked Christmas-y, but I tried to stay away from that. Ruby Red, Cameo Coral, Very Vanilla, and Old Olive look great together! I sponged a bit of creamy caramel on the main image panel too. The stamp set is a soon-to-retire Hostess level 1 set: Of the Earth. A small, old olive ribbon tag and ruby red brads finish it off.

I have to run to get dinner ready before my hubby gets home!!

  2. No sock monkeys here, girl. Both cards are beautiful but I especially love the second one! It doesn't look Christmassy at all! The stamped BG paper is awesome!
