Color Dare #149 ~ Ruby, Outdoor Denim, Colonial White & Kraft

Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week for Color Dare #149 we are featuring RUBY, OUTDOOR DENIM, COLONIAL WHITE and KRAFT.

11401444_10153070823819440_2587294451351161646_nSince these colors have a patriotic feel I thought I would design a layout for my shadow box to celebrate the 4th of July.  I have been needing to update it so this worked out perfectly.

Color Dare #149 ~ 4th of July ~ patriotic layout ~ catscrapbooking.comFor this project I used my Cricut Explore to cut all the shapes.  I used Ruby & Outdoor Denim cardstock and Fundamental paper with the Colonial White cardstock.  My base is the Kraft.  For my cuts the star is just one of the basic shapes found in Design Space.  The overlay, rocket and frame are all from Artbooking cartridge.  I used scraps of paper to back these cuts which made them more colorful.  I did have to cut away one of the stars from the photo frame as it was covering too much of the photo.  The fireworks bursts are part of my Cricut subscription #M32A4A and so is the 4th of July is also from my subscription #M43700.  I used some of the sequins I had to five it a little shimmer.  I am so happy the way this turned out and the way I designed the photo frame is next year I can change out the photo with one from this year.

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 #149.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday July 9, 2015 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Happy Crafting!

Stampers with Attitude Blog Hop – Patriotic

Welcome to the Stampers with an Attitude Blog Hop!

The Stampers with an Attitude are excited to show you some Patriotic Art with an Attitude, so here we go……

I was excited about the patriotic stamps that CTMH was offering this year.   I think sometimes we get so caught up in our day to day routines that we forget to thank and show support for those who serve our county.    I know that I could be better about showing my patriotism and being more supportive of those who serve.

For this card I used cranberry cardstock for the base.  I still really like the Hero paper from last year and felt it was very fitting for this occasion with the blues and stars.  I used the the Home of the Brave stamp.  For inks I used Moonstruck, Cranberry and Slate.  The flag pole was done using black embossing powder.  I found some red, white and blue bakers twine to keep with the theme.
