Color Dare #267

Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week for Color Dare #267 we are challenging you to use (All and Only) these three CTMH Colors: Saffron, Goldrush, Fern. And then use One, 2, 3 4, 5, 6 or 7 of the neutral colors (White, Charcoal, Pewter, Almond, Toffee, Nutmeg and Espresso); OR use all these colors from the “Falling For You” Paper Pack.”

With our challenges you have two weeks to participate which gives you more time and flexibility to create  – but please don’t wait for the closing date to submit your entry. Winners will be announced at the close of each challenge.

You may have noticed the new color palette layout. This was designed for better clarification of the colors. CTMH cardstock has the actual color on one side and the other side is a lighter variance of the same color.
This new palette photo will make it easier for comparison for matching colors if you don’t have CTMH Colors. Plus…the variance of the same color gives you a fair range for substituting similar colors so you can still join in all the fun.

I really love the Falling for You paper pack, so I jumped at the chance to play with it and my new Sammy the Squirrel.

I used my Shin Han markers to color him. I look forward to pairing him with this paper pack again.

Now it is your turn to create! Just create a project (card, layout or other craft project) using this weeks colors.  Then link them to the Color My Heart Blog ~ Color Dare #267 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday November 9, 2017 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Happy Crafting!

I love the 3 x 3 cards that are available for this months Operation Smile promotion.  The cards kit is fabulous but you can totally design your own.

I chose to use Falling For You paper pack and accent with the G0ld Glitter paper.   I cut the Goldrush circle at 1 3/4 inch and used the 2 inch circle die to cut the gold glitter. I used watercolors to color the cute puppy.

October Stamp of the Month ~ Christmas Tunes

Welcome to the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!! This month we are featuring October’s stamp of the month ~Christmas Tunes (S1710) a set of 7.

If you are coming here from MELISSA ROBINSON’S Blog, then you are in the right spot ~ Welcome!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating  consultants on Melinda’s blog HERE.  This month we have around 25 consultants participating this month so you are sure to be inspired.

I was really drawn to the snow globe so I know that would be the stamp set I wanted to focus on.  I decided I used one of the Adventure fundamental paper for the background to emboss.

I also though I would grey to stamp on the silver foil paper with the Archival Black ink which work.  Just let it sit for a couple of minutes before you touch it. I did a bit of fussy cutting with the silver foil, Pewter cardstock and the White cardstock.

If you love this stamp set you will want to be sure you purchase it this month as it is only available the month of October and if you spend $50 on qualifying product it could be yours for $5!!

Your next stop is along this hop is WENDY KESSLER’S Blog, so hop on over and see what wonderful creation she has for you today.

Happy Crafting!
