Color Dare 295 ~ Glacier, Nutmeg and New England Ivy

Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week for Color Dare #295 we are challenging you to use (All and Only) these CTMH Colors: GLACIER, NUTMEG, and NEW ENGLAND IVY.  You are able to use neutrals – Black and White in your design.

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!

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 #295 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday, June 14, 2018 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

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.

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 #291 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday.

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.

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 #289 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday.

Color Dare #285 ~ Bashful, Pebble, and Raspberry

I had a few of these flowers and butterflies already sitting on my desk from my Spring Banner I created which you can see HERE. I decided to use them to represent the Bashful.  Then I looked for Raspberry and found the Raspberry fundamental paper.

For this card I wanted to soften the Raspberry so I used a velum as an overlay.  I added Bashful glitter paper behind the sentiment.  I used both sides of the pebble to the darker for the base and the lighter for the sentiment.  I also used second generation Raspberry ink for the sentiment.
