Welcome to the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!! This month we are featuring September’s stamp of the month ~Feeling So Blessed (S1709) a set of 26.

I love the saying on this stamp set so I knew that is what I would focus on.  I then decided to play with the feathers and combined it with Falling for you papers.

I used the Falling for You Paper pack along with White Daisy, Gold Glitter paper and the new Heather Cardstock.  I also used gold embossing powder for the sentiment.  I added the White Burlap ribbon which I separated and then used my Bronze Shin Han marker to color the new White Pearls.

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

Color Dare #259 ~ Emerald, Goldrush, Pansy, Black, White with Optional Gold

Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week for Color Dare #259 we are challenging you to combine  EMERALD, GOLDRUSH, PANSY, BLACK, WHITE DAISY, with the Option to add GOLD.

Happy 1st of September!! We are making a couple of changes to our challenges starting this week!! We are sure you will love it!!  Color Dare #259 will be active from the 1st to 14th, and the next Color Dare #260 will go active on the 8th to 21st, etc. There will be two challenges running at all times. The two current challenges will be available on the sidebar of the Color Dare Blog.
This extension gives you more time and flexibility to create and hopefully invite more participants for Color Dare – but please don’t wait for the closing date to submit your entry. Winners will be announced at the close of each challenge. The winners for #259 will be announced the Monday following the 14th, and each week thereafter.
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.
The rules will remain the same (All and Only) the featured colors in our Challenge, neutrals will be specified and some colors optional.
Here is my creation this week:
I wanted to use this adorable frog which comes from Technique Tuesday and is part of their Animal House series ~ Felix the Frog
Here is the inside of the card:

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 #259 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday September 14, 2017 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Happy Crafting!

CTMH Technique Blog Hop ~ Crazy for Cardstock

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!  This month there are 10 of us highlighting Crazy for Cardstock. This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique.

If you are coming from DEBI MCBAIN BLOG, you are on the right track!

I knew I wanted to show the subtle differences with the light and darker sides of our new cardstock but I was not quite sure how to do this…. so I turned to Pinterest.  I stumbled on a image for quilting and though perfect.  Here is what I came up with.

I used the lighter side of the papers for the top triangles and darker on the bottom.  I used Willow, Canary, Thistle and Lagoon.  I also incorporated two of the basic ~ Mink and Charcoal. I used All the Thanks B1536 Stamp set for the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!  Please continue onto MICHELLE LONCAR’S BLOG where you will find some additional artwork highlighting this technique!  Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought of my variation and happy hopping!

Fire Station Tour Layout

I have been finding a bit more time or should I say I have been making a bit more time to do some of the things I love to do.  I have fallen very behind on my scrapbooking, so I have been focused at getting back into it.  I was able to design a layout of my son’s first fire station tour back in 2014.

For this layout I used a couple of the Jack paper pack along with some of the Enchantment Fundamentals.  I also added a little of the Adventure ribbon.

Happy Crafting!

Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week for Color Dare #253 we are challenging you to combine  Gold, White Daisy, Slate, Glacier, Willow, Tangerine & Poppy.

I have been wanting to play with June’s Technique Tuesday fish so I though this may be great for this color combination.

I used my Slate pigment ink to stamp the fish then added clear embossing powder to keep the ink from lifting off when I watercolored.

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 #253 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday June 29, 2017 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.
