Color Dare #195 ~ Thistle, Pear, Crystal Blue, Lagoon and White Daisy

Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week for Color Dare #195 we are challenging you to combine THISTLE, PEAR, CRYSTAL BLUE, LAGOON, and WHITE DAISY.

Color Dare 195_oI was needing to complete my project and I love this color combinations so I figured it would not be too difficult to decide what to create but to it was a bit challenging to narrow down what I wanted to create.  Then I got a phone call from my mom and she was having to put her dog down after 14 years together.  So I then knew I needed to design a sympathy card.

Color Dare 195 ~ Pet Sympathy ~ Calypso ~ Simon Says Stamp ~ PawPrints on our hearts ~ CatScrapbooking.comI realized I forgot to photograph the inside of the card which said Dogs leave pawprints on our heats and I added a few more hearts and pawprints.

For this card I used the following products:

  • Stamp Set ~ Pawprints on Our Hearts by Simon Says Stamp
  • Inks ~ Thistle, Pear, Lagoon and Crystal Blue
  • Cardstock ~ Crystal Blue, Lagoon, Pear, Thistle and White Daisy
  • Paper Pack ~ Calypso
  • Cricut ~ Envelope and Hearts

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 #195 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday June 2, 2016 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Happy Crafting!

Pawesome ~ Freshly Made Sketch #197

I have wanted for a long time to participate in the Freshly Made Sketch challenges, but always seemed to be behind on my crafting or just missed the cut off.  Well it has happened again …. I finished this card last night and realized the challenge ended Monday. Oh well….. I still like my card so I am going to share it with you anyway.

Pawesome ~ Boken technique ~ Puppy ~ FMS197 ~ CatScrapbooking.com

Here is the sketch:

FMS+Final+197-001I am loving the purple, blue and green combination (as you can tell from my post from yesterday).  I used Indian Corn Blue, Pear and Thistle inks to create the background.  I used circles and pawprint stencil from Simon Says Stamp.  I have been wanting to use this Pawesome set from Simon Says Stamp which includes the dies, stencil and stamp set.  I used my water color pencils to color the puppy.   I added a little bling with the purple gems.

Happy Crafting!
