Color Dare #439 ~ Black & White Plus One

Welcome to another week and another Color Dare Challenge! For Color Dare #439 you are challenged to use Black and White plus one color of you choice.

I wanted to play with the Eat Play Love – Cardmaking stamp and thin cut. I went with Red as my additional color.

This is a simple card but is so fun. I used the Stitched Rectangle Thin Cuts to cut the black cardstock. I then used a piece of red pattern paper from the Seasonal Mix-in paper pack. The sentiment from the Eat Play Love – Cardmaking stamp and thin cut was stamped in Black ink and then I used Christmas Red Stickles to add a bit of glitter.

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

I decided to use several of the images and stamp them to create my own pattern. I used Toffee, Avocado, Canary, Raspberry, and Nectarine inks. I used the April Stamp of the Month stamp set. I then used the Stitched Rectangle Thin Cuts. I pulled some some twine from my stash. If you want to see the other cards I created with the stamp set you can see them HERE.

Welcome to another Color Dare Challenge!  This week we are back with a Three + Two + One Recipe. Here is how it works pick three colors, then two neutrals and then pick one Metallic.

I couldn’t decide what colors to use so I asked my son to pick a color. He chose Carolina, so I went to my Love of Color book and looked for coordinating colors. I chose Peacock and Sage.

I used a bit of gray on the banners and white for my neutrals. Silver is my metallic with the Silver stars and Silver Stickles. The patten paper is from the Seasonal Mix-in papers. The stamp set is Best Wishes All Around which works well with the Circle Shaker thin cuts.

Color Dare #434 ~ Love of Color

Welcome to Color Dare #434! This week we are doing our Love of Color Challenge and it is a great one! It features Wisteria, Grape, Lagoon, Blue Belle, Sage and Canary. You must use at least three of these colors. You can include Black, White and Neutrals with Silver being optional.

I went for all the colors except Sage. I did use Black, White and silver. Rainbows are everywhere these days but they are not always traditional colors. I also love the cards in the new March -April Idea Book that I decided to duplicate rather than reinvent.

I basically used the same design just changed the colors. I pulled the canary pattern paper from the Jan/Feb seasonal mix in papers. I added some Blue Belle Shimmer trim. I used the new Build-a-Rainbow Thin cuts and the Charming Background stamp set. The sentiment if from Sunny Days Ahead stamp set. I then used a few of the Silver Star Confetti or a bit of bling.

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.
