Color My Heart in Goldrush, Ponderosa Pine and New England Ivy

This week's Color My Heart Color Dare is to use Goldrush, Ponderosa Pine and New England Ivy, and I have to admit that I totally cased this card from Fiona Whitten.  I do not have any Ponderosa Pine paper, so I made some by stamping Colonial White cardstock with Geometric Backgrounds in Ponderosa Pine followed by Universal Backgrounds in Cashmere and sponging on a little chocolate.  I used a scalloped square punch from Friskars and sponged the edges with Chocolate.

Thank you for stopping by!  Now please head on over to Color My Heart to see how others have used Goldrush, Ponderosa Pine and New England Ivy or, better yet, make something yourself and enter the challenge.   Until next time, Hansi

Materials used, all Close to My Heart unless otherwise noted:
Paper:  Florentine (retired), Flirty (retired), Colonial White and Kraft cardstock
Ink:  Ponderosa Pine, Cashmere, Chocolate
Stamps:  Geometric Backgrounds, Holiday Tags, Universal Backgrounds (retired)
Embellishments:  Durables Triangle Studs
Other:  Punch by Friskers


  1. Great layout to use all the Color Dare colors! It is very pretty! I love your placement of the durable studs, too! Did you see that your butterfly card was a Top Pick over at Sunday Stamps?--there is a blog badge to be grabbed there!

  2. This is so pretty. I love the way you incorporated the colors together. Those little scallop squares are adorable.

  3. Straight CASEing just fine! There is always some adjustment or improvement that goes along with it, and in true Hansi-style you have made this design your own. I love the clever hand-made Ponderosa Pine DP, the ink-distressing gives great dimension and those triangular brads reinforce the funky angles. Fantastic card.

  4. Very nice! Love that card design with the scalloped squares on an angle.

  5. Another great card, Hansi! I love the different tiles and the movement across the page!
