Color Dare #315 ~ Hello Pumpkin Tic Tac Toe

Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week for Color Dare #315 it will be a Tic-Tac-Toe Board Challenge using the CTMH color palette from HELLO PUMPKIN. Please use and identify the three colors in a row of your choice; however we will allow any or all other colors from the Challenge Board to be included. You can check out the rules on our blog.

I went with the bottom row ~ Lagoon, Candy Apple, and Black. I added White as my neutral.

I made a stencil using Polka Dot Overlay from Artbooking Cricut Cartridge. I then used the glossy texture paste on the black cardstock.  I then used the Fabulous Birthday Stamp Set with Charcoal, Black, Lagoon and Candy Apple inks.  The lagoon pattern paper at the top is part of one of the PML cards in the Hello Pumpkin paper pack.  I used the Make it from Your Heart Volume 4 to make my card.

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 #315 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday, November 1, 2018 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

September Stamp of the Month ~ Just Treats

Welcome to the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!! This month we are featuring SEPTEMBER’s stamp of the month ~ JUST TREATS (S1809) a set of 22.If you are coming here from MICHELLE STEWART’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.

This stamp set is wonderful as there are soooo many ways you could use it.  here are two that I came up with.

The first one I created was this one.

I used the new Boutique Paper Pack.  I loved the PML card from this pack as my pattern paper. I then used Peacock, Glacier and Sugarplum. I masked the Sentiment with Peacock and Sugarplum.

I also used the new Sugarplum Shimmer brush to add a bit of glimmer to the card.  It is hard to see but the dots and drops I added the shimmer.  I also added it to the the peppermints.

For this card I used the Hello Pumpkin paper pack. I love the Ghost from the Hello Pumpkin Scrapbooking Stamp Set but I really wanted the reverse image too.  So I googled how to do it and found this video.   I also used the Hello Pumpkin Washi Tape.

I wanted to add a bit of shimmer to this as well so I used the new Black Shimmer Brush for the eyes, drops, dots and the “no”. I also masked the sentiment with Black, Nectarine and Pansy.

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