I could not resit playing with some of the new products that Close to My Heart will be releasing in just a couple of days. So you are getting a SNEAK PEEK at a couple. I went with the diagonal Lilac, Flamingo and Glacier. I did add in silver and some neutrals.

The sneak peeks are the heart paper which if from the upcoming Seasonal Mix-ins, the adorable girl is Olivia which is one of four cute girls who will be making their debut. The other two sneak peaks are the sentiment and the dots. I used the Make it From Your Heart Volume 4 to design this card.

I used the Flamingo Shimmer trim and Flamingo Shimmer Brush. to add the pops of Flamingo with the Lilac and Glacier. The Dots are also flamingo.

I added a Silver Foil Paper behind the White Daisy. Olivia was colored using my Spectrum Noir Markers. I did add a touch of Silver Marker to her bracelet and earrings, which I hope you can see here.

Color Dare #432 ~ Photo Inspiration

Welcome to another week with Color Dare #432! This week we have an inspirational photo ~ Chihuly. BLACK, WHITE, and NEUTRALS are FREE

I have been wanting to try using alcohol inks after seeing all the artwork that people create using them. So I broke down and purchased some. Then I started watching YouTube videos to learn how to use them. I used a technique where I added ink to a piece of felt then dabbed it onto the yupo paper. I then used Alcohol blending Blending to blur the colors.

I used the one sheet of yupo paper to make these two cards. One is a floating shaker and the other is just on white card base.

This card I used a 4×6 flip flap which I trimmed down to make the shaker. I used the Iridescent Flower Confetti in the shaker. The Yupo paper was cut using one of the Fancy Borders Thin Cuts. The Thank you is a cricut cut.

The thank you was cut using my cricut and I used a few of the Iridescent Flower Confetti for accents. The Yupo paper was cut using one of the Fancy Borders Thin Cuts.

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 #431  or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday, March 4, 2021 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

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.
