Thank You Cards

I designed a card which I blogged about on Friday for the Color My Heart Color Challenge #193 featuring Georgie. You can check that post out HERE.  I really liked the way it turned out, that I decided to make a few more.

Color Dare #193 ~ Georgie

Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week for Color Dare #193 we are challenging you to combine CANARY, CHAMPAGNE, JUNIPER, SLATE, WHISPER, and WHITE DAISY.

Color Dare #193 badgeI love the Georgie paper pack and it is so great for baby theme projects but the colors are fabulous and can be used for many other occasions.  My husband asked me for a thank you card the other day and when I want to get him one from my stash, I realized most were very feminine.  So here is one I created for him.

Color Dare #193 ~ Georgie ~ Thanks ~ CatScrapbooking.comI created the white “thanks” cut by slicing the “thanks” and a rectangle.  The “thanks” is the Artistry font.  If you would like the cut file HERE it is.

Here is the full list of supplies used:

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 #193 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday May 19, 2016 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Baby Shaker Cards

Don’t you just love the Georgie paper pack?? I know its obvious use is for baby theme projects.  I have had fun using it for other uses but decided it was time to work on baby items.  I needed some baby cards since I know a few mamas to be. I though it would be fun to make shaker cards.

Stamping ~ Georgie ~ Baby Card ~ CatScrapbookingI took the alligator and inked it in Juniper, then I rolled it in Whisper.  I have to admit the rock ‘n’ roll  does not show up as well as I hoped in the photograph.  I also used this technique along the circle border.  I rolled the first 3-4 circles in Canary and then in Juniper.  Here is a closer photo which you can see the colors a little better.
