Color Dare #479 ~ Crazy 8

Happy Friday!! Color Dare is back with another Color Dare Challenge. This week for Color Dare #479 we have our Crazy 8 Challenge. You pick four of the colors in the image to use in your project. Note that Black, White, and Gold are free to us.

I will admit this one stumped me but may that is because my head is still foggy from being sick. I went with Mocha, Sundance, Shortbread, and Harbor.

For this card I used the Barn Door Stamp set. Using Mocha ink, I stamped on the lighter side of Shortbread. I then inked the edges with Mocha and matted on Mocha cardstock. I cut a 2 inch circle using the Circle Thin Cuts on Shortbread and stamped the Embroidered Circle stamp in Mocha. The sentiment if from the For All Occasions stamp set. I added a strip of Sundance and Harbor. The leaf is a retired thin cut and was cut in Harbor.

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

Color Dare #478 ~ Neutrals Plus One Color

Welcome to Color Dare Challenge #478! For our second challenge of 2022 we are having you use neutrals plus one color. Silver and Gold are Free!!

I had been playing with the new Sweet as Honey papers and thought they would be perfect for this challenge. I went with black, grey and white with Sundance.

For this card I used Make it From Your Heart Volume 4 pattern 6. I used Sundance cardstock for the base, to cut the hexagons and bee. I used the zip strip and paper from the Sweet as Honey papers. I cut the Daisy White Cardstock and then using the honeycomb thin cut form the Sweet as Honey Cardmaking Workshop. to make a stencil. I used Sundance Ink to sponge on the color creating the honeycomb. The hexagon thin cuts are also from the Sweet as Honey Cardmaking Workshop as is the bee. I used Black Shimmer Trim under the zip strip. I added a couple of Black Dots. Then Sentiment if from my stash.

I created another using the revers of this pattern paper and changed the sentiment.

This card doesn’t quite meet the challenge requirements as it features Shortbread. But I thought it would be fun to showcase them together.
