Guest Designer for Color My Heart


I cannot begin to explain how excited I am to be a Guest Designer for Color Dare!!! I had seen this blog a while a go and had been wanting to start participating.  Several weeks ago I started and it was so much fun I needed to do it again and again….  I highly recommend giving Color My Heart’s Color Dare a try, their color combinations usually inspire me to to create something fun.

This week the color challenge  #98 is Buttercup and Indian Corn Blue.  Here is the card I created.

Color Dare #98 ~


It was fun to make this flower using fabric.  I cut a 1″ by  ” strip of fabric.  I pulled some of the strands to make the frayed look.  I then took a needle and used a running stitch on the opposite side of the fray.  I then pulled the thread so the fabric gathered and then sewed it to the other side, resulting in a rosette style flower.

For this card I used the following products:

  • Paper Pack ~Jubilee
  • Cardstock ~ Indian Corn Blue, Buttercup and Colonial White
  • Embellishments ~ Chantilly Fabrics, Opaque flourish, Blue Buttons, yellow bakers twine
  • Stamp Set ~ Artiste Collection Word Balloons

Happy Crafting!


CTMH – Roxybond Scrappers Team Blog Hop – Chantilly

Welcome to Roxybond Scrappers Team Blog Hop!!

We are featuring some of the new product lines from the Spring/Summer 2013 catalog.  This month we are showcasing the Chantilly paper line.

If you have come from Jen’s blog then you are on the right path. Your next stop with be Tess’s Blog.  This paper pack is so bright and colorful!  It has been fun and easy to create with this paper pack.  For this blog hop I created a layout and some cards.

Finished page kit 2 - Version 2

For this layout I used the Chantilly paper pack, Twilight, Sweat Leaf, Buttercup, Cotton Candy and Daisy White Cardstock.  I also used the Pink Glitter Gems and the Chantilly WOTG stamp set.  The inks I used were Twilight, Buttercup and Cotton Candy.

Happy thoughts Card 4 - Version 2

For this card I used my Silhouette to actually cut the shape of the leafs and flower – no more fussy cutting here!!!  I used the Happy Thoughts stamp set with Cotton Candy and Sweet leaf inks.  I then went back over the flower with Stickles to give the glitter look. I also used and embossing folder to emboss the Cotton Candy cardstock. I am becoming addicted (just like everything else with paper crafts)  to Washi tape  which is what I used to in the middle of the card.

Chantilly Iris Fold card 1 - Version 2

Iris fold cards are so much fun and such a neat way to bring color to a design.  I used my Silhouette to cut the dragonfly then used Chantilly paper strips along with another pink scrap I had to make the wings. The sentiment was stamped in Cotton Candy using For Every Occasion stamp set.

Chantilly Happy Birthday 4 - Version 3

I have to admit Pinterest is a great place to find inspiration and ever scrap-lift. I was always told that scrap-lifting is the best form of flattery.  Well I took my inspiration from a card that was made by Christine Adams.  I used Pear, Twighlight, Cotton Candy and Daisy White Cardstock.  To cut the Cotton Candy scalloped circles, I used a Spellbinders die.  I used my 1 1/4″ circle punch for the circles and then used the Chantilly WOTG and Perfect Fit- Birthday stamp sets.

I hope you enjoyed these creations and if you need to pick you any supplies you can find most of them on here on my CTMH website. Now hop on over to Tess blog and check out her wonderful creations!!
