Color Dare #376 ~ Winter Inspiration Board

Welcome to another week of Color Dare!  We have another great Inspiration Photo – WINTER. Pick colors that you see in the photo and BLACK and WHITE are free but NO other neutrals!

I love winter and all the colors that surround it! I fell in love with the new Technique Tuesday stamp set which is part of their Animal House series. I have a love of foxes (okay maybe an obsession) and this one captured my heart! Technique Tuesday offers a different animal based stamp set each month as part of their Animal House Stamp sets. Their first stamp set in this series was a fox which is why I signed up for the subscription and this month they released another fox!!!

I used the Spruced Up paper Pack with the burlap ribbon which has been retired. I also added a wooden element from the my stash. I used my Tri-blend markers to color the fox.

Color Dare #375 ~ Monochromatic Blues

Welcome to another week of Color Dare!  This week we have a good one for you.  This weeks challenge is BLUES!  You can use BLACK & WHITES are all neutrals are free.

I have a big challenge that I am getting ready for since Christmas. My son’s school is doing a Passion Pursuit Day for their first day back from Winter Break. I was asked if I would teach paper crafting, so of course I said yes!!!! I will be teaching all day to grades K-5. So my Winter break has been designing cards!!! I decided to make one of my cards with this challenge in mind.


I made a couple unicorn cards but I thought it would be fun to make a narwhal one as well. I cut the narwhal and waves with my Cricut. I used Carolina, Bluebird, Pewter and Charcoal cardstock. I added a couple of the blue loos Craft on Sequins. I also added a bit of Clear Shimmer to the tops of the waves; however, it is not showing up well in my photo.

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 #375  or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday, January 16, 2020 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Color Dare ~ #373 Black & White plus 3 colors

This week at Color Dare we have a super fun challenge! We are partnering with Double Trouble. So for Color Dare Black and White Must Be Used – Plus Add 3 Additional Colors and No Other Neutrals. Double Trouble Requirement: THING 1: Trouble Maker says, “I went to the Zoo and the Zebra was my favorite animal. Won’t you include something striped (no plaid) somewhere in your project. If you use a black and white stripe you get another chance for the draw.” And the three colors option is to meet the requirement of Color Dare’s requirements.

I was looking on Pinterest for an inspiration since my mind is all over the place with Christmas fast approaching. I found this card and thought it would be perfect. Here is my take.

The black and white stripped paper is from a retired paper pack. The three colors I used is Wisteria, Julep, and Carolina. I added the Wisteria Ribbon and a few Julep Sequins. I stamped Birthday from the Say It In Style in White Pigment ink then used White Embossing Powder on the black cardstock. The Happy dies are from my stash.

I also participated in the Double Trouble Challenge which the following:

THING 1: Trouble Maker
