Color Dare 301 ~ Poppy, Lemon and Willow

Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week for Color Dare #301 we are challenging you to use (All and Only) these CTMH Colors: POPPY, LEMON, and WILLOW.  You are able to use neutrals – Black and White in your design.

For this challenge I decided to use the Central Park Scrapbooking Stamp Set.

I first inked the stamp set in Lemon and then rolled the top in Willow and the bottom of the image in Poppy.  I then inked it a second time in Black ink and cut out the “reason” I then used a watercolor brush to pick up a bit of the Willow ink from the top of the stamp pad to color in the “reason”.  I used one of the pattern papers for the Central Park pack and created my own pattern paper by random stamping the solid circle from the Central Park Scrapbooking Stamp Set in Willow on Willow.  I then used a couple of the Central Park sequins and White Glitter paper for a bit of pop.

Now it is your turn to create!

These colors totally make me think of a masculine card and with Father’s Day just around the corner I decided to make a card for dad.

I inked the fish from the Let’s Go Fishing Stamp Set. For the base layer I used Glacier, then I used second generation New England Ivy. For the top layer I used Nutmeg.  I use the Fresh Air Paper Pack for the background.  I stamped the fly by first stamping in Glacier.  I then inked with Nutmeg and then took a baby wipe to the areas I wanted the Glacier to show and then re-stamped.  I added a bit of the New England Ivy twine and colored a couple of the Clear Sparkles green with my alcohol markers.  The Dad if from the awesome Rad Dad stamp set which is available now until June 30th while supplies last so you will want to grab one!

Color Dare #291 ~ Sapphire, Smoothie, Heather with optional Gold

Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week for Color Dare #291 we are challenging you to use (All and Only) these CTMH Colors: SAPPHIRE, SMOOTHIE  and HEATHER with the optional GOLD.  You are able to use neutrals – Black and White in your design. You can check out the rules HERE.

I am really liking the new Beautiful Friendship paper as I love blues mixed with pinks as to be honest I am NOT a pink loving gal.  So when I saw this Color Dare challenge I knew those paper would be great.

I created the two ton with the flowers from the Postcard Perfect Stamp Set by inking and stamping the flower once then rolling the edges back in the ink and stamping a second time.  This results in a first and second generation ink in one stamped image.

I did use ball embossing tool to work the center of the flowers which resulted in them curling a bit.  The Thanks is from a retired stamp set Variety of Thanks.  I decided to add a bit of gold with our Gold Shimmer Trim and the Gold Glitter Gems.

Color Dare 289 ~ Raspberry, Mink & Juniper

Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week for Color Dare #289 we are challenging you to use (All and Only) these CTMH Colors: RASPBERRY, MINK,  and JUNIPER.  You are able to use neutrals – Black and White in your design. You can check out the rules HERE.

I have been seeing cards with the sentiment cut out of the card and popped up.  I thought that would be great for this challenge and use a floral design.  Here is how it turned out.

In this view it is hard to see the “TH” as the stamp is pretty bold.  I used the Thin Cut – Block Letters to cut the “Thank.”  The flower is from a retired stamp set called A Budding Friendship D1602 and the “You” if from another retired stamp set called Sunny Thoughts S1802.  Here is a side view:

Here you can see how the letters are popped up.  I used the thick foam tape to pop them up.
