Hello Foxy

Don’t you just adore this cute stamp set for this month’s Stamp of the Month?  If you don’t know I adore foxes so I am obsessed.  I had some fun making these cards.

These two were using the same design that I used for Color Dare #247 last week.   I loved the way it turned out I wanted to make more in different colors.

This card was actually designed by Susan Williams who is so incredibly talented.  I love what she did with her cards which you can see here.  I made mine a little different.

If you love this stamp set Then you will want to purchase it soon as it is only available until June 3oth!!

Color Dare #239 ~ Slate, Canary, White Daisy and Eggplant

Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week for Color Dare #239 we are challenging you to combine SLATE, CANARY, WHITE DAISY and EGGPLANT.

I originally though I would do something with flowers as that is what sort of came to mind.  Then I saw a stamp set that has been sitting on my desk taunting me to create with it….So I decide to play with Kyle.  Technique Tuesday came out with an Animal House Series this year and I could not resist as they started out with a fox stamp set so I was hooked.  Kyle was there February release.

For this card I used the fundamentals.  I stamped Kyle in Slate ink then using a blender pen lifted a bit of color from the Slate stamp pad to color him and his hat.

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 #239 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday April 20, 2017 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Happy Crafting!

Layout #28 ~ CTMH Convention 2014 Fun Run

Wow is time flying!!! I have been so busy since coming home from the 2016 Close to My Heart Convention.  My head is spinning with Ideas as I have been drooling over the new Annual Inspiration.  I managed to sneak some time in over the last two days to get a layout done so I can stay on target of a layout a week.

I decided it would be fitting to scrapbook a layout from the 2014 Close to My Heart Convention.  This was the first year that I attended convention and it was in Disneyland.  On one of the mornings CTMH organized a Fun Run which would benefit Operation Smile.  It was a 5K and went through California Adventure before the parks opened.  I have to confess I am not a pink person but for some reason I decided to purchase a pink t-shirt to wear and made a tutu.  If you know me these are totally outside of my comfort zone.  Now to top this off I used a lot of pinks on my layout 🙂

Fundamentals ~ Kaleidoscope ~ CTMH Convention 2014 ~ CatScrapbooking.comFor this layout I used:

  • Kaleidoscope Paper Pack
  • Pixie and Smoothie Fundamentals
  • White Daisy Cardstock
  • Pink Glitter paper
  • White Twine
  • Pixie Twine
  • Handwritten Alphabet E1030

Happy Crafting!

Layout Challenge #14 ~ Christmas Card layout ~ CatScrapbooking.comFor this project I used the following products:
