Color Dare #445 ~ Crazy 8

Welcome to another Color Dare Challenge! For Color Dare Challenge #445 we are challenging you to choose four block from the below image. Black and White are free.

I went with Canary, Flamingo, Blue Belle, Mink and and Embellishments, so I choose 5 of the blocks. Plus free Black & White.

I recently purchased a few new products from Honey Bee Stamps and started playing with them. I used the Balloon Stencil with the large balloons for the base. I used Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry, and Stormy Skies oxide inks as they are similar to the CTMH colors. I then used Pumice Stone oxide ink for the small balloon stencil. I then went over with White pigment ink. I used Vellum and Black cardstock for the Bitty Buzz Word dies. I used the Stitched Rectangle Thin cuts and then matted on black cardstock. I then added a couple white sequins.

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 #445  or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page. You can also link up via Pinterest, Instagram, Flickr and  other forums. For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday, June 3, 2021 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Happy Crafting!

Heart 2 Heart ~ From Me to You

Are you ready for another fun challenge from Heart 2 Heart?

I decided to focus on this month’s Stamp of the Month which has this same title. I really love this stamp set as it has so many fun sayings. I also love two cards that Close to My Heart featured recently on Facebook that you can see HERE. I decided to recreate these with different colors.

The original one was with pinks… I prefer purple. I used Thistle and Lilac with Sage for the leaves. I used the Stitched Flowers and then cut the rest of the flowers using Cricut Flower Market. On the original card Close to My Heart did real stitching around the card, I used a white gel pen to create my stitching. I then used a few loose Silver Sequins.

With this card I changed the colors and the sentiment. I used the Party Balloons stamp set. I chose Carolina with the black, white and Seasonal Mix-in paper. I used a white gel pen to create my stitching. and added a few loose Silver Sequins.

Now it is your time to give it a try and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. You have until August 31st to participate in this challenge. We love to see your inspirations!!

Heart 2 Heart ~ Geometric

Welcome to another weekly challenge with Heart 2 Heart!

For this challenge it is Geometric.  I looked up the definition of geometric and it is using straight or curved lines in designs or outlines. Another is of or relating to art based on simple geometric shapes (such as straight lines, circles, or squares). I decided to create a circular card for this challenge.

Close to My Heart ~ CTMH ~ CatScrapbooking ~ Shaker Card~ One Year Older ~ Party Balloons

I went to my cricut to look for a circle card ~ which I can say I have never remember creating one ~ I found on the Art Philosophy Cartridge which has been retired.  I thought the One Year Older Stamp Set would work great for this card.  I also paired it with the Party Balloons Stamp Set. The striped paper is from True Love Paper Pack.  To make the shaker you do need a few key items such as the Shaker Window Thin Cuts, Shaker Window with Acetate, and Loose Sequins – Silver.

Now it is your time to give it a try and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. You have until June 30th to participate in this challenge. We love to see your inspirations!!

Happy Crafting!
