Color Dare #259 ~ Emerald, Goldrush, Pansy, Black, White with Optional Gold

Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week for Color Dare #259 we are challenging you to combine  EMERALD, GOLDRUSH, PANSY, BLACK, WHITE DAISY, with the Option to add GOLD.

Happy 1st of September!! We are making a couple of changes to our challenges starting this week!! We are sure you will love it!!  Color Dare #259 will be active from the 1st to 14th, and the next Color Dare #260 will go active on the 8th to 21st, etc. There will be two challenges running at all times. The two current challenges will be available on the sidebar of the Color Dare Blog.
This extension gives you more time and flexibility to create and hopefully invite more participants for Color Dare – but please don’t wait for the closing date to submit your entry. Winners will be announced at the close of each challenge. The winners for #259 will be announced the Monday following the 14th, and each week thereafter.
You may have noticed the new color palette layout. This was designed for better clarification of the colors. CTMH cardstock has the actual color on one side and the other side is a lighter variance of the same color.
This new palette photo will make it easier for comparison for matching colors if you don’t have CTMH Colors. Plus…the variance of the same color gives you a fair range for substituting similar colors so you can still join in all the fun.
The rules will remain the same (All and Only) the featured colors in our Challenge, neutrals will be specified and some colors optional.
Here is my creation this week:
I wanted to use this adorable frog which comes from Technique Tuesday and is part of their Animal House series ~ Felix the Frog
Here is the inside of the card:

Now it is your turn to create!

Color Dare 253 ~ Gold, White Daisy, Slate, Glacier, Willow, Tangerine, & Poppy

Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week for Color Dare #253 we are challenging you to combine  Gold, White Daisy, Slate, Glacier, Willow, Tangerine & Poppy.

I have been wanting to play with June’s Technique Tuesday fish so I though this may be great for this color combination.

I used my Slate pigment ink to stamp the fish then added clear embossing powder to keep the ink from lifting off when I watercolored.

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 #253 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday June 29, 2017 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Color Dare #239 ~ Slate, Canary, White Daisy and Eggplant

Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week for Color Dare #239 we are challenging you to combine SLATE, CANARY, WHITE DAISY and EGGPLANT.

I originally though I would do something with flowers as that is what sort of came to mind.  Then I saw a stamp set that has been sitting on my desk taunting me to create with it….So I decide to play with Kyle.  Technique Tuesday came out with an Animal House Series this year and I could not resist as they started out with a fox stamp set so I was hooked.  Kyle was there February release.

For this card I used the fundamentals.  I stamped Kyle in Slate ink then using a blender pen lifted a bit of color from the Slate stamp pad to color him and his hat.

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 #239 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday April 20, 2017 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Bailey the Bunny Easter Card

I can’t believe Easter is this weekend!! The great news is I remembered in time to create some Easter cards to send to family.   I used my new adorable Bailey the Bunny stamp set from Technique Tuesday.

I used the wood grain embossing folder on Whisper cardstock for the background.  The rest of the cardstock is from the Whimsy Fundamentals.  The sentiment is from Eggstra Special Easter from Lawn Fawn.

A belated Valentine or Anytime Love Card

I am obsessed with foxes!  I saw this set by Technique Tuesday and knew I must have.  I finally got a chance to play with it and made a sweet card for my son for Valentine’s day but it could really be an anytime love card. I saw a super cute spinner card created by Stephanie Davis.   I was totally inspired to create a card with Frederick Fox.

Here is the inside of the card. I use a be my valentine sentiment but it could have been anything.

The true challenge was stamping the reverse of Fredrick.  To to this I stamped him on my all purpose mat then gently pressed the cut out on to the masked stamped image.  I then took a black pen and inked the lines.  I was pleased the way it turned out, although it took me many tries.

Waterfall Cards

I have really enjoyed making cards. In fact I did not realize how many cool techniques with card making there are. I really like the interactive ones particularly the waterfall card. Here are a couple of versions.

This Butterfly card was made with the footloose paper, lagoon, colonial white, sweet leaf and olive card stock. I used a stamp set from Technique Tuesday for the saying and butterflies. I then used watercolor pencils to color the butterflies.

This was a card I designed for the malamute rescue I volunteer for. It was fun to use some of my dog themed stamps. I used scraps of my papers that I had around. Cards can be a great way to use left over scraps.

This card was also created using some of the papers I had around. I used a stamp set by Technique Tuesday for the wine theme. I used the CTMH stamp set Life is Tweet for the “It’s your birthday”. The “cheers” was stamped using the Trinity alphabet by CTMH.
