Color Dare #153 ~ Sunset, Hollyhock, Olive and White

Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week for Color Dare #153 we are featuring SUNSET, HOLLYHOCK, OLIVE, and WHITE DAISY.


I have really been wanting to use the Brushstrokes Stamp Set so I needed a bit of inspiration, so I went to Pinterest.  I found this card which I lifted for my own.

Color Dare #153 ~ Card ~ Own Kind of Wonderful ~ Brushstrokes ~ catscrapbooking.comFor this card I used Brushstrokes C1608 and Your Own Kind of Wonderful D1627 stamp sets.  The flourish which I stamped in Black if from Technique Tuesday ~ Wild Vines.  I added some bling with the Bitty Sparkles.

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 #153.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday August 6, 2015 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Happy Crafting!

I had been struggling with a layout for these photos of my son for quite some time.  Then I saw the Blossom paper pack and knew it was the perfect paper.  I found a sketch that was the base of my inspiration but ended up changing it quite a bit in the end.  Over all I am pleased the way this layout turned out and I love the Stamp “Smiles Begin with You” and it was so fitting for this layout.

Blossom ~ Dream Big~ Butterflies ~ Smiles begin with you ~ catscrapbooking.comSince this was a professional photo shot I thought it would be fitting to add the camera charm which is from the Craft Queen Base & Bling Charms.

Blossom ~ Dream Big ~ butterflies ~ catscrapbooking.comFor this layout fussy cut all the butterflies from the “Your Own Kind of Wonderful” and the tag is from Artbooking page 39.  To create the tone on tone look for the butterflies I stamped the base color in second generation ink and then the full color for the top layer.

Here is the full list of supplies:
