Soft and Pastels Color Dare Challenge #323

Welcome to this weeks Color Dare Challenge! We are featuring a two challenges thin month one with Soft Pastels for your holiday creations.  Please join us by using soft and pastel colors to design your creations.

I was inspired by a beautiful card designed by Krista Hershberger as she used Sugarplum and Snowflakes.

I used Sugarplum cardstock, Ink, and Glitter paper. I cut the snowflakes with Winter Flurries Thin Cuts and the Sugarplum Glitter Paper.  I then used the Holiday Borders Stamp Set and stamped snowflakes with Sugarplum ink. I added a few of the Sugarplum Glitter Gems.

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 #323 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday December 30, 2018 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations!!!

Happy Crafting!

December SOTM Blog Hop – Candy Cane Alphabet

Welcome to the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!! This month we are featuring DECEMBER’s stamp of the month ~ CANDY CANE ALPHABET (S1812) a set of 44.

If you are coming here from WENDY KESSLER’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 14 consultants participating this month so you are sure to be inspired.

I was out of time before going on our vacation as I planned to design a layout.  I had an inspiration for a card and it came together rather quickly I am quite pleased on how it turned out.

I focused on the “H” and “O” to stamp out HO HO.  I decided to make one stand out with the New England Ivy.  I used the ‘Tis The Season Paper Pack.  I also used the Make It From Your Heart Volume 4 and used pattern 12 as my design. I used the Silver Glitter Gems and New England Ivy Burlap Ribbon.

I decided to add a little sparkle to my HO HO’s. I used my Red Shimmer brush on the Candy Apple stamped HO’s and then added a bit of Liquid Glass and Shimmer Brush to the New England Ivy “HO”.

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 December and if you spend $50 on qualifying product it could be yours for $5!!
