Color Dare #425 ~ Inspiration Board

Welcome to another week of Color Dare!  This week we have a good one for you.  This weeks challenge is an Inspirational Board!  You need to use at least three of the colors you see in the photo and BLACK, WHITE, GOLD & SILVER and all Neutrals are Free.

For this challenge we are also partnering with Double Trouble Challenge.

Thing 1: Trouble Maker says, “After getting through 2020 we all need a bit of cuddling! January 6th is National Cuddle Up Day. We are dedicating our challenge to using your CuttleBug (or Big Shot, Gemini, Bira, etc.), with your embossing folders and/or dies.

Thing 3: Twisted Sister says, “The photo reminds me of a song, “Looks Like a Cold, Cold Winter”. I remember singing, It’s gonna be cold outside, but it’s gonna be warm inside, so we’ll cuddle up by a cozy fire, side by side.” Brrrrr! When it’s cold I enjoy cuddling up with my cat. I don’t want Jack Frost nipping at my nose and Kitty knows how to keep him away. Optional Twist: Include a warm and fuzzy critter in your project and earn another chance for the Random Draw.

I used one of the patten papers form the Holiday Stacks from the Seasons in Motion special which did just end. I used the Let’s Paw-ty stamp set choosing to color just some of the dogs. I used Clover and Bluebird cardstock. I used my Close to My Heart Die Cutting Machine to cut the Stitched Hexagons Thin Cuts.

I added a bit of Onyx Pearl Liquid Pearls to some of the dogs noses and to the sentiment.

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 #425  or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday, January 14, 2021 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Happy Crafting!

  1. I love those randomly coloured dogs for the background. The sentiment is terrific on the hexagon die 🙂

  2. How cute, Cat! I am a cat and dog lover and think these cute canines are wonderful for making someone’s day.

  3. Adorable… great sentiment. Love the random coloring of your pups.

  4. Love your card, Cat. The way you colored portions of the dog images really makes them stand out better than coloring it all! Love it!

  5. Love your card, Cat. The way you colored portions of the dog images really makes them stand out better than coloring it all! Love it!

    When I saw this card, I said, “Oh my cuteness!” The puppy with his tongue sticking out kills me!

  7. I love all those dogs, and what an awesome idea to just color some of the background! Thank you for joining with us at Double Trouble.

  8. The addition of the shine on some noses will add tons to the texture, with all the colors and bg design. Love how the sentiment took center stage with the color and shape of the tag.
