Color Dare #175When I saw these colors the first thing that came to mind was snowflakes.

Color Dare #175 ~ Glacier, Silver & White ~ Artbooking ~ Snowflakes ~ CatScrapbooking.comI used Rectangle Snowflakes #M3CF6D  from the Artbooking cartridge.  I sized it so it was 4″ high then using a basic square which I turned into a rectangle 4″ X 5.25″, I sliced the two shapes to create my 4″x5.25″ snowflake piece.  I then used Silver foil tape, Silver Glitter Paper and Glacier to back the circles and snowflakes on the card base then glued the overlay down.

Color Dare #171 ~ Cranberry, Pear, Gold and White Daisy

Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week for Color Dare #171 we are featuring CRANBERRY, PEAR, GOLD & WHITE.

12182759_1666640680289390_217688051216951767_oI knew when I saw these colors I would be doing a Christmas card.  I have been seeing a lot of fabulous cards using the awesome White Pines Scrapbook Workshop on the Go stamp set.  I decided it was time to give it a try.

Color Dare 171 ~ White Pines WOTG Stamp ~ Christmas Card ~ CatScrapbooking.comI used Cranberry, Pear and White Daisy cardstock.  I used the Versamark pad to stamp then used gold embossing powder.  I added a bit of Gold Glitter paper.  I used the Artistry cartridge to cut the shape for the Christmas stamp and the holly leaves.  Both cuts are found on page 48.  I backed the holly leaves using the Green Shimmer trim.  I decided to just use the Red Gems for the holly instead of the cricut cut.  I also used the Confetti Embossing folder for the White Daisy cardstock.

You may be saying those colors remind me of something… Well  you are right it is the Wanderful paper pack.  When I sat down to design, I thought about using the paper pack but then decided to go a different route.  I decided to use Artfully Sent (as I have not played with it in a while) and go with an Easter theme.

Color Dare #133 ~ catscrapbooking.comI had so much fun mixing papers and colors that I got a little carried away and created three cards total.  Here are the other two.

  • Cardstock ~ Juniper, Daisy White, Cotton Candy
  • Paper Pack ~ Whimsy fundamentals
  • Embellishments ~ Ribbon (stash), Glitter Gem (stash)
  • Stamp Sets ~ Pretty Petals C1599, Teddy Bear Birthday A1143 (retired)

Color Dare #111

I was so happy to be crafting again since the move, that I could not resist participating in this weeks Color Dare # 111 which features Cranberry, Sorbet, Olive, Lagoon and Pacifica.

Color Dare #111 colors

I was feeling very inspired by Pinterest these days as while my craft room was in transit from Washington to Colorado, I had to at least dream about doing something creative.  I have to admit I love my Lawn Fawn stamp sets – Into the Woods and Critters in the Forest.  I am a sucker for cute foxes so that was the major draw.   I don’t always get to use these stamp sets as I am usually working with my  Close to My Heart stamp sets.  But I saw a card on Pinterest and knew I needed to lift it.  It was originally designed by Melinia Deasy but I changed some of the animals and colors.

Color Dare #111 ~ catscrapbooking.com

I used my Silhouette to design the card frame, then just popped it up with CTMHs new thin foam tape. I used the dies that coordinate with The Lawn Fawn -In the Woods set to cut the fox, skunk and deer.  I had to hand cut the porcupine.  I used my Shin Han markers to color the critters – I am really loving these markers.

Here is the full list of supplies used:

  • Cardstock ~ Slate, Cranberry, Lagoon, Olive, Pacifica & Sorbet
  • Stamp Sets ~ LF – In the Woods & Critters in the Forest, CTMH – Babycakes WOTG (for party hats) & Belated Birthday B1442
  • Embellishments ~ Black and Grey Sparkle assortments Z1754
  • Shin Han Markers~ Tender Pink Z2464, Marigold Z2457, Pastel Peach Z2460, Warm Grey Z2468, Barely Biege Z2445, Clay Z2451, and Mahogany  Z2456
  • Ink ~ Pacifica, Cranberry, Sorbet, Lagoon and Black

Now why don’t you give this weeks Color Dare a try!

Color Dare #110

Well I did it!  I was able to get my craft room set up so I could create my first project as a member of the Color Dare Design Team.  I am planning on posting photos of my new craft room set up this weekend.  I was not sure I was going to be able to pull this off but I was able to get it done today.  So with our further adieu here is this weeks Color Challenge #110.

Color Dare #110 Colors

These colors are very fall like to me and I am so happy to have the cooler temperatures.  As I have mentioned before Fall is one of my favorite times of the year.  I have to admit I am a bit surprised to hear as I write this blog for tomorrow, that we may be waking to our first snow flurries …. Really???? Wow – I do like snow but I guess I am a bit shocked it will be arriving so early it is only mid September.  Anyway here is my fall inspired thanks card.

Color Dare #110 ~ catscrapbooking.com

For this card I used the following products:

  • Paper Pack ~ Scardy Cat
  • Cardstock ~ Barn Red, Sunset, Colonial White
  • Stamp Sets ~ Happy Autumn D1550, Timely Tidings M1047
  • Ink ~ Barn Red, Honey and Sunset

Guest Designer for Color My Heart

994874_10151837085999923_1738823927_n

I cannot begin to explain how excited I am to be a Guest Designer for Color Dare!!! I had seen this blog a while a go and had been wanting to start participating.  Several weeks ago I started and it was so much fun I needed to do it again and again….  I highly recommend giving Color My Heart’s Color Dare a try, their color combinations usually inspire me to to create something fun.

This week the color challenge  #98 is Buttercup and Indian Corn Blue.  Here is the card I created.

Color Dare #98 ~ Catscrapbooking.com

 

It was fun to make this flower using fabric.  I cut a 1″ by  ” strip of fabric.  I pulled some of the strands to make the frayed look.  I then took a needle and used a running stitch on the opposite side of the fray.  I then pulled the thread so the fabric gathered and then sewed it to the other side, resulting in a rosette style flower.

For this card I used the following products:

  • Paper Pack ~Jubilee
  • Cardstock ~ Indian Corn Blue, Buttercup and Colonial White
  • Embellishments ~ Chantilly Fabrics, Opaque flourish, Blue Buttons, yellow bakers twine
  • Stamp Set ~ Artiste Collection Word Balloons

Happy Crafting!

Color Dare #97

For this weeks Color My Heart’s Color Dare the colors are Outdoor Denim, Honey, Olive and New England Ivy.

color dare #97

These are very masculine colors to me and though it would work well with the My Hero ~ Hostess Exclusive stamp set.  My father-in-law is a retired Airforce pilot so I could make a great card for him.

Color Dare #97 ~ Catscrapbooking.com

To achieve the multi-color stamped look I used the pigment inks in New England Ivy, Outdoor Denim and Honey.  I used a dauber to apply the ink to the areas of the stamp so It would look this way.

Products used for this card:

  • Cardstock ~ Colonial White, New England Ivy
  • Paper Pack ~ Victory
  • Inks ~ New England Ivy, Outdoor Denim, Honey and Olive
  • Embelishments ~ Bakers Twine, Square Durables
  • Stamp Set ~ My Hero B1448
  • Embossing Folder ~ Cheveron

Happy Crafting!
