Color Dare #357 ~ Tic-Tac-Toe

This week we have another Fun Color Dare Challenge for you.  This week for Color Dare #357 we have our popular Tic-Tac-Toe board this time we are not using a particular paper pack.  For this challenge you can use any diagonal, row or column, you can add in any of the other colors shown.  Blacks & Whites are FREE but NO other neutrals.

Black and Whites are free but NO other colors

I decided to go with the far right column with Sage, Toffee and Sapphire. I purchased the stamp set It’s a Cowgirl Thing on a flash sale but have not played with it. So I thought I would…

The stamp set is It’s a Cowgirl Thing. I used Sage, Toffee and Sapphire inks. I random stamped the horseshoes on the white using second generation Toffee ink. The flower is paper pieced together with two flowers one in Sage and one in Sapphire. The pattern paper is from True Love Paper pack. I also used the Sapphire Crochet Thread and added a few white loose sequins from the Loose Silver sequins for some bling. The other shimmer is actually a sneak peek at two new shimmer brushes. Yes, get excited as there are two more for a total of four new ones!!!

Color Dare #356 ~ Silver or Gold

Welcome to another week of Color Dare!  This week we have a good one for you.  This weeks challenge is GOLD OR SILVER for COLOR DARE #356!  You can use two Accent Color and BLACK & WHITES are free, but NO other Neutrals.

So for me the answer was silver as I am totally a silver girl! I decided that pairing the silver with Sapphire would be great for a Christmas card. I know some of you are saying it is too early for Christmas cards….. but if you make handmade cards you know it is never to early.

I used Sapphire and Daisy White cardstock. I love our Silver Foil Paper and thought it would be great for this project. I did a search on Cricut and found this cool Fancy Snowflake. I also used the now retired embossing folder. The sentiment is a retired stamp set that just may be making a comeback…. It is called Say It In Style.

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 #356  or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday, August 29, 2019 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.
