Color Dare #454 ~ Photo Inspiration

Welcome to Friday and another Color Dare Challenge! For Color Dare Challenge #454 we have a fun one for you. We have a photo inspiration for this weeks challenge, simply choose at least three colors from the photo plus Black and White are free.

I choose Purple, Blue and Green and decided to play with my alcohol inks.

I so love the new Butterfly Background Thin Cuts! I used it to cut a piece of yupo paper which I discovered requires a bit more pressure when using your CTMH Die Cutting machine. I ended up using -2 to successfully cut the Yupo paper. I then backed with Black cardstock.

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 #454 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.

For Color Dare #453 we are featuring our popular Tic-Tac-Toe board, this week it is focused on the colors of the new Wander Paper Pack. Choose your column, row or diagonal, Black and White are free along with Gold or Silver.

I love the Wander Paper pack! It is one of my favorites! I decided to keep things simple and create a card using the new Wander Cricut Collection. I went with the top row ~ Sapphire, Glacier, and Sage, plus Linen, Sundance. and Paprika.

What it great is there was no thinking or planning with this card. All I did is pick the papers. I love this card and look forward to using this image on some future scrapbook layout once we get our camper in October.

Color Dare #452 ~ Candy Apple, Glacier, & Lemonade

Welcome to Friday!! Friday means we have another Color Dare Challenge for you. This week for Color Dare #452 we have a three color challenge for you ~ Candy Apple, Glacier, and Lemonade. Black and White are Free along with Silver.

I have been busy with summer plans ~ mostly entertaining my son since he is out of school, so I have not found as much time to get into my craft room. I have had these new products from Honey Bee Stamps sitting in my craft room untouched… gasp!!! Well I was determined to use them for this project.

I love this Cone Flower die, but to be honest making the stem and leaves Glacier, and not a shade of green, is sort of hard for me. I am pleased the way it turned out. I used the Stitched Lattice Background Thin Cut for the base. I then created my own stem of the flower by fussy cutting. I used the Stitched Oval Thin Cut for the sentiment. The Sentiment if also from Honey Bee Stamps ~ Fresh Flowers. I added a couple of Silver Glitter Gems for bling.

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 #452  or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.

I decided to go with Sapphire, Candy Apple, New England Ivy, Smoothie, Grey, Embellishments, plus Black and White.

I am totally on the Gnome obsessive list. I am loving our new gnome stamp set ~ Chillin with My Gnomies stamp and thin cuts. I colored my Gnome with my markers that matched Sapphire, Candy Apple, New England Ivy, Smoothie (for the pigment of skin but use my blender pen to subtract color) and Grey. I stamped the star from this stamp set on the hat to add more details. I stamped a few fire works to work with the star background paper which is from a retired Seasonal Mix-in. I added a bit of glitter and embellishment with the Steel Stickles Glue.

Color Dare #449 ~ Purple + 2 colors

Welcome to another Color Dare Challenge! This week we are featuring my favorite color purple. For Color Dare #449 we have shades of purple + two colors of you choice. Black and White are free but not part of the 2 color choice.

I played around with ink and colored pencils. I created two cards identical cards but colored them differently.

So here are the two cards individually.

I started with embossing the white cardstock with a honeycomb embossing folder. I then used my markers to color. I then used Versamark ink to stamp the sentiment and then using white embossing powder to heat emboss. I used Busy Bees stamp set and dies. I used the Bright Bitty Beads to accent the centers of the flowers.

For this card everything is the same. I only changed the medium to color the flowers and bees.
