Color Dare #452 ~ Candy Apple, Glacier, & Lemonade

Welcome to Friday!! Friday means we have another Color Dare Challenge for you. This week for Color Dare #452 we have a three color challenge for you ~ Candy Apple, Glacier, and Lemonade. Black and White are Free along with Silver.

I have been busy with summer plans ~ mostly entertaining my son since he is out of school, so I have not found as much time to get into my craft room. I have had these new products from Honey Bee Stamps sitting in my craft room untouched… gasp!!! Well I was determined to use them for this project.

I love this Cone Flower die, but to be honest making the stem and leaves Glacier, and not a shade of green, is sort of hard for me. I am pleased the way it turned out. I used the Stitched Lattice Background Thin Cut for the base. I then created my own stem of the flower by fussy cutting. I used the Stitched Oval Thin Cut for the sentiment. The Sentiment if also from Honey Bee Stamps ~ Fresh Flowers. I added a couple of Silver Glitter Gems for bling.

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 #452  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, July 22, 2021 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Happy Crafting!

I used all the colors except French Vanilla but could have easily have substituted the Daisy White for the French Vanilla. It was just that I grabbed the wrong paper. LOL!

I decided to play around with the Happiness Lives Here Cricut Collection. I love this card which is one of the images in the collection. I added a few Silver Glitter gems for bling.

Hummingbird Thank You

Have you seen the fantastic hummingbird stamp and thin cut that was released this month? I love it! Here is a card I created and colored to represent a red rufous hummingbird.

I used one of the flowers from the new Stitched Together Cricut Collection. I used Smoothie, Canary, and Toffee cardstock. I used the Sentiments by Melissa Esplin stamp set for the sentiment. I used a die that I purchased from Honey Bee Stamps for the polygon shape. The embossed Glacier cardstock is using a retired embossing folder.

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!!
