What a Daring Family!

Today, I have the joy of uploading 3 projects...and I just made one of them!
My hubby and I hosted a birthday party for my mother-in-law today. We do it each year, and while the teens and adults are watching football, my younger nieces (Cecelia, Sarah, and Hailey) always enjoy coming into my stamp room.

Since I had not yet done this week's Color Dare, I thought I'd ask the girls to play along. We had a lot of fun...and the girls came up with a lot of there own ideas. I'm so proud of them!!

Here is my card...a rare square card. The Color Dare uses Garden Green, Perfect Plum, Blushing Bride, and Very Vanilla. The sketch is for splitcoaststampers Sketch #305. The plum DSP is retired, but everything else is currently available from Stampin' Up! Good thing I had the plum dsp...I am out of plum card stock! Time to place an order!

I used Fifth Avenue Floral to make my own DSP for the background. The plum and blushing bride pattern papers, as well as the sentiment panel, are all outlined in the garden green. I cut out one flower, colored it with my marker, and added a glimmer brad. I also used the Big Shot Little Leaves sizzlit die. The ribbon is pretty in pink taffeta (my blushing bride twill ribbon is due to arrive tomorrow! WooHoo!)

Here is Cecelia's card...isn't it cute? She chose how to use the colors (she was excited to see the Beautiful Wings embosslit die!) I suggested the modern label and word window punches, because, well, I use them so much, why not share the joy??

My great-niece Hailey saw my sample pull-out scrapbook, and decided to give it a try. Dinner and cake took up some of the time, so she will finish the inside details at home. She brought some of her own stamps, and wanted to color them with markers. I think these colors are perfect for a 9 year old girl!!

Sarah made cards in different colors, and sadly I did not get any pictures. I'll give her double billing next time!

Gotta clean up now. Or maybe I'll just stamp more!
