Color Dare #337 ~ Love of Color

Happy Friday!  This week we have another Fun Color Dare Challenge for you.  This week for Color Dare #337 it is our Love of Color.  This week our colors are Glacier, Sugarplum, Ballerina, Sage, Pewter, Silver.  Simply choose at least 3 of the Colors – Black & White Are Free.

I decided to use Glacier, Sugarplum, Ballerina, Sage, Silver, White and Black.  Basically all colors but Pewter.

For this card I used Sugarplum as the base.  The Ballerina strip is from Something Fierce paper pack.  I used Glacier for the sentiment and used Silver embossing powder. The stamp set is called Critters Ever After from Lawn Fawn.

The base of the shaker is sponged using a stencil I made using a Cricut cut.  I used my sponge and inked with Ballerina, Sage, Glacier and Sugarplum. I used Sugarplum, Ballerina, and Glacier ink to color the unicorn and then used my shimmer brush to add shine.  I used the Shaker Thin Cuts to cut the pieces of the shaker card including the Silver Glitter paper.  I filled the shaker with Loose Sequins – Silver and the used Sugarplum Glitter paper to cut the stars.

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 #337 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday, April 18, 2019 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.


Happy Crafting!

Tag, You’re It! – CTMH Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop! 

This month there are around 10 of us highlighting using Tags!  Close to My Heart has these amazing Tag Thin Cuts which will be the majority of what you may see. This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork. If you are coming from MELISSA ROBINSON’S Blog, you are on the right track!

I had fun making my cards! I even was experimenting and made a shaker tag!!

For this card I used the Feels Like Home paper pack and Fern Cardstock.  I used the Fancy Tags Thin Cuts and the Decorative Borders Thin Cuts. The stamp sets I used for this card are Know That I Care and Card Captions.  The inks I used were Pewter, Sugarplum, and Fern.  I just used the Fern ink with my watercolor brush. I added the Sugarplum shimmer brush to the insides of the flowers and Mink Twine.

For this card I decided to make a tag shaker.  For the top layer I used the tag and then centered the oval thin cut to cut the center.  I used that same tag to cut the white base and the Acetate top.

I don’t know about you but the first time or two when I went to use the circular foam it did not turn out totally round.  So I knew it could be molded it to fit the tag and I only needed to trim a little piece. I used the Shaker Window & Confetti Thin Cuts for the hearts.   The “Love You” is stamped in Candy Apple using the Card Captions Stamp Set.

I added some Red Shimmer Trim and White Ribbon.  I used pattern 9 as the basis of my design from the Make it from Your Heart Volume 4.
