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. May 3, 2018 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Color Dare #285 ~ Bashful, Pebble, and Raspberry

Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week for Color Dare #285 we are challenging you to use (All and Only) these CTMH Colors: BASHFUL, PEBBLE,  and RASPBERRY.  You are able to use neutrals – Black and White in your design. You can check out the rules HERE.

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.

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 #285 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday. April 5, 2018 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Think Pink Blog Hop

Welcome to the Think Pink Blog Hop!

Today you will be hopping with the same talented consultants who bring you the Stamp of the Month blog hop.  Today we are featuring artwork which showcases some of the pink products are part of February’s special.

If you are just arriving here from MELINDA EVERITT’S Blog, or just starting at my blog then you are on the right track ~ Welcome!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating  consultants on Melinda’s blog HERE.   For this hop we have about 16 consultants participating so you are going to see some fabulous artwork.

I love the mobile idea that Close to My Heart came up with using the pinks.  It inspired me to make a Spring Home Decor.  I have made one for Fall and Summer so it was time for a “Spring” one.  Here is how it turned out.

I know it is hard to see the detail in this photo so her is a close up of two of the letters.

For this project I used 4×4 burlap tiles that I purchased about 2 years ago.  I used Bashful cardstock along with a bit of the pixie cardstock (for the base layer of the butterflies).  I wanted a bit of pattern paper so the Gimme Some Sugar pattern paper was perfect. I used the same cricut cuts for my flowers and butterflies.  I also used the Bashful Pearls for the center of the flowers. I wanted to add a bit of shimmer so I used the Bashful Shimmer Brush.

January Stamp of the Month Blog Hop ~ Adore You

Welcome to the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!!  This month we are featuring January’s stamp of the month ~Adore You (S1701) a set of 12.

If you are coming here from WENDY KESSLER’S Blog, then you are in the right spot ~ Welcome!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating  consultants on Melinda’s blog HERE.  This month we have around 20 consultants participating this month so you are sure to be inspired.

I have been planning to design my family calendar but time has not been my friend these last few months. So needless to say I am running behind and have only completed the first 6 months. The good news is I have started and will have it done this week (I hope :-)). While I was working on it I decided to incorporate this months stamp set on April as I felt the colors would be perfect for flowers.

One thing I do when I make my calendar is I use a photo from that month the year before.  Well I forgot that it snowed for Easter last year in April so maybe I should have done snowflakes instead of flowers…. The colors still work and I am hoping for a more traditional spring day for this year’s Easter.

For the April calendar page I used the Enchantment Paper Pack and for this layout the colors are Poppy and Fern. I used my Black Archival ink to stamp the Adore You flowers.  I used Poppy ink with the Bistro Script Stamp Set.  The hearts are stamped in fern using the Way to Go Stamp Set.  I used the PML – Tabbed Journaling Cards to mat the photo.  Then it was put into a 6 X 12 Memory Protector Flip Flap.

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

Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week for Color Dare #183 we are featuring  COTTON CANDY, SWEET LEAF, TOPIARY, GLACIER and WHITE DAISY.

Dolor Dare #185

I love the double stamp look and since Close to My Heart has quite a few I wanted to play around with one called Someone Special C1607.  These colors were perfect.

Zoe ~ Someone Special ~ Flowers ~ Color Dare 185n~ CatScrapbooking.com  I cut a frame from the Zoe hounds tooth paper. I used foam to pop it up like a Polaroid photo.  I stamped the flowers in Cotton Candy, the first stamp was second generation and the top was Cotton Candy.  I used Sweet Leaf and Topiary on the leaves but the Topiary is all that really showed.  I stamped the sentiment in White Daisy ink then added White embossing powder.

Full list of products used:
