Technique Time with Heart 2 Heart

Welcome to another Heart 2 Heart Challenge!

This challenge is to give Stamped Backgrounds a try. Stamped Backgrounds are a great way to put your own spin on your design by creating your own pattern paper. Here is my card and then I will walk you through my steps to get here.

I love the dinosaurs which go with the Something Fierce Paper Pack. I love the pattern paper with the dinosaurs that come with the paper pack but I wanted to create my own with the cute dinosaur that comes with the Something Fierce Cardmaking Stamp Set. I used the Largest Circle Thin Cut and largest Stitched Circle Thin Cut. I also added the scallop border from Decorative Border Thin Cuts.

I started with the largest image, the dinosaurs and then stamped in a triangle shape with each color. I used Carolina, Bluebird, Lemon, and Willow.  I then used Pewter ink and stamped the confetti in the blank spots.

I also added a bit of random stamping to the stamping to the stitched circle.

I wanted to add a little extra to make the green dinosaur pop, so I added liquid glass and then fussy cut it.

Now it is your time to give it a try and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. You have until January 31st to participate in this challenge or any of our January Challenges.

Happy Crafting!

Color Dare #305 ~ Blossom, Bashful and Eggplant

Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week for Color Dare #305 we are challenging you to use (All and Only) these CTMH Colors: BLOSSOM, BASHFUL, and EGGPLANT.  You are able to use neutrals – Black, Grey, Brown, Kraft, Cream and White in your design.

I have to be honest in these pinks are not my thing so I struggle to design. I decided to use an new stamp set and die I had just gotten from Technique Tuesday.

I decided to stamp the background with second generation Blossom using the Beautiful Dragonflies Stamp Set.  I then cut the dragonfly using Build a Dragonfly Die.

I added a bit of glitter with the Bashful glitter paper and the Bashful Shimmer brush. I used the brush to add some shimmer to the “love” and the wings of the eggplant dragonfly.  You can see that better here.

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 #303 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday August 23, 2018 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Happy Crafting!
