Color Dare #39 Is Punny Fun!

Welcome to another color dare!  This week, I was super-excited to get designing, because I love these colors sooooo much.  Blue and purple hues are some of my all-time faves!  The Close to My Heart colors to use for this Color Dare are Gypsy, Sky, and Outdoor Denim.  I heard clapping!  :)

Here is the adorable set of 3 x 3 Punny cards that I made with these colors along with the neutrals black, white, slate, and shimmer.  That IS a color, right?  ;) 

Edited to add...I am linking these cards up to the My Creative Time's 3x3 Card Challenge


I have had this adorable little stamp set since January, but no time to play.  I love the trendy feel they give.  Chevrons, washi, arrows, and polaroids are all pretty hot trends right now, so I wanted to use them somehow.


Love these single chevrons from C1534 Sightseer.  :)  I popped them up with some foam tape.


The Polaroid trend is super-hot right now, not to mention adorable!


What are you waiting for?  Why not give this amazing color combination a try!  Link up to the Color My Heart Color Dare today to share your creation made with Gypsy, Sky, and Outdoor Denim (or similar colors.)  You could be the next Color Dare Diamond badge winner!  :)  See the link for the complete rules.  I am also linking this up to Heart 2 Heart's Pun Fun challenge


This cute little My Acrylix set is unfortunately not for sale in out Idea Book, BUT you CAN receive this little set from me when you host a gathering either at your house or online!  Contact me today to set yours up!  :)

    1. Thanks for the prompt! I added that they are 3 x 3 in my write up. :) That is so funny, because my stamp set sat on my desk so long I started not seeing it! ;) Good luck and thank you!

  4. You have a great eye for combining patterns, Amie. REALLY like how these card elements LOOK thrown together, although I know that wasn't the case--it gives them such life. I vow to add some sparkle to my next project!

  5. Great job this week with the colors. What a wonderful use of the Petite Perks stamp set and use of low price points accessories items from Close to my Heart. Very creative and very useful cards for someone to receive as a gift.
