Color Dare 164 with Nevermore

This week we are challenging you to use the color in the Nevermore paper pack - Sunset, Eggplant, Black, Slate & Whisper (Pear is optional). I used the Eggplant spider paper and the colors to make a card with my new Nov. SOTM. I also used the Sept. SOTM for the flower. I don't really celebrate Halloween, so I didn't feel like a layout was in order, and I have no use for a Halloween card, so I thought outside the box a little. The sketch I used was from CAS(E) This Sketch.

Come join us this week at Color My Heart!


Materials used:
Cardstock: White Daisy, Black
B&Ts: Nevermore
Stamps: Paper Garden, Cheers 2016!
Ink: Eggplant, Sunset, Slate, Whisper

October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - Twinkle

Welcome to the October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop. This month we are showcasing the stamp set -Twinkle! This blog hop is a big circle. If you came here from Jean McNulty's blog, you are on the right track. When you are finished here, just click on the link below to keep hopping. Have fun!

I made this card with the stamp set:
I used the colors from the challenge at Color My Heart. Which were not very Christmas-y, but I LOVE brightly colored twinkle lights, so I thought it worked out perfectly with these twinkle light stamps!!! The colors were:

White Daisy

I also used Black for my outlines and sentiment. I embellished with just a few bitty sparkles. After I took this picture, I remembered that I wanted to add liquid glass for an extra-special effect on the twinkle lights. I added it and it's drying now, so I will add a picture of with the liquid glass in the morning! It just gives it that extra something!

Come join us at Color My Heart this week!
