Color Dare #235 ~ Dreamin’ Big

Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week for Color Dare #235 we are challenging you to combine to use the Dreamin’ Big Color pallet.  Our usual challenge is to use “all and only” the featured colors, however, ten colors to combine are quite a challenge! So, for this challenge we are asking you to use at least 4 of the colors (excluding the neutrals) without adding new colors from the Dreamin’ Big Color palette.

I love this paper pack as it will be perfect for so many projects.  Today I am sharing a birthday card I created using the cut bugs.

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 #235 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday March 23, 2017 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Happy Crafting!

Since we are approaching spring break for a lot of people and many will head to the beach, I was inspired to use the Swirly Shells.

For this card I used Colonial White cardstock for the background.  I then took Sea Glass, Chrystal Blue and Glacier to make the water side.  I created the sand look with Dessert Sands, Champagne and Cashmere using a sponge.  I then watercolored the shells.  I used Sea Glass glitter paper and Kraft cardstock.

A belated Valentine or Anytime Love Card

I am obsessed with foxes!  I saw this set by Technique Tuesday and knew I must have.  I finally got a chance to play with it and made a sweet card for my son for Valentine’s day but it could really be an anytime love card. I saw a super cute spinner card created by Stephanie Davis.   I was totally inspired to create a card with Frederick Fox.

Here is the inside of the card. I use a be my valentine sentiment but it could have been anything.

The true challenge was stamping the reverse of Fredrick.  To to this I stamped him on my all purpose mat then gently pressed the cut out on to the masked stamped image.  I then took a black pen and inked the lines.  I was pleased the way it turned out, although it took me many tries.

Happy Valentine’s Day!!!

I hope everyone has a wonderful day filled with happiness.  Things have been out of sorts around here so I am just hopping for the best.  We have had a rough start to the new year with illness.  My son is on his third possibly forth illnesses since the new year.  Anyway, here’s to spring? I had great intentions of posting the photos of our valentines over a couple of days but I am now down to the day….

Here are two I designed using the fun new XOXO thin cut.

This one is using the Adventure Fundamentals.

This one combines Sugar Rush with a little Enchantment Fundamentals and Swan Lake.  I also used the new Heart thin cuts and XOXO thin cuts.

Happy Crafting!

Guy Birthday Card

My husband’s birthday was last week and my son helped me pick out the design.  My son wanted to do a monster truck card as the theme.  Here is what I designed.

For this card I used Sugar Rush Paper pack and the Enchantment Fundamental Papers.  I used a retired stamp set Maximum Power D1564.  I used CTMH Archival Black ink and then used my watercolors to add color

Happy Crafting!
