Color Dare #446 ~ Yellow, Blue, and Grey

Welcome to another Color Dare Challenge! This week for Color Dare #446 we are featuring Yellow, Blue, and Grey. You must use all three colors and you can add in Black, White, and Silver.

I just received these fun dies and could not wait to play with them.

I created my own background using Blueprint Sketch Oxide ink. I used Canary cardstock behind the white flower dies. I used Mink cardstock for the sentiment and stamped the sentiment with Charcoal Ink. I added a couple of silver 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 #446  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.

Heart 2 Heart ~ Sponging

Welcome to our second challenge of May here at Heart 2 Heart!

This challenge is a fun one! Sponging is a fun technique that can be done using a variety of ink. I will show you two cards using Oxide Inks and the other using regular ink. We hope you will join us and play along. Please remember you must use at least one Close to My Heart product in your design.

Here are the two cards the one on the left I used Oxide inks and the one on the right is using regular inks.

For this card I used the Wisteria, Fern, Flamingo, Canary and Glacier inks to loosely color the flowers.

I used sponges and some other sponge tools I have to color.

As you can see the oxide inks are a bit more vibrant. For both of these cards I used the Floral Borders & Sentiments stamp set.

Now it is your time to create something and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. Did you know you can link your projects from Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, Flickr, and many other platforms using the url link to your design. You have until May 31st, 2021 to participate in this challenge. Make sure you include at least one Close to My Heart product. We love to see your inspirations!!

Heart 2 Heart ~ Colour Challenge

Welcome to another weekly challenge with Heart 2 Heart!

Colour Challenges are fun as they give you the start of your inspiration. I decided to try a fun fold card. I stumbled on a Joy Fold card and decided to give it a try.

The base of the card is Glacier cardstock which was cut at 8.5 inches by 4.25 inches.  I then scored it at 5.5 inches. The Peach cardstock was cut at 8 inches by 3 inches and scored at 4 inches. I used the Seasonal Mixin for the pattern paper.


Here you can see how the card opens.

I used the April Stamp of the Month which features the butterflies, sentiments and floral details. I used the Circle Stitched Thin Cuts and the floral border if from the Decorative Border Thin Cuts.

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

Happy Crafting!
