Color Dare #456 ~ Color Wheel Opposites

Welcome to Friday and another Color Dare Challenge! For Color Dare Challenge #456 we have a color wheel challenge. Using this color wheel choose two colors from opposite sides of the wheel. Black, White, Naturals and Gold are free.

I chose to go with Blue Violet and Yellow Orange.

I used the Wander papers for the two patten papers. Using the Wander Cardmaking and Thin Cuts I stamped the mountain in pewter and charcoal. I added a bit of Texture paste for them snow covered mountains. I then colored two wooden arrows with my Charcoal shimmer brush.

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 #456 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, August 19, 2021 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Happy Crafting!

Heart 2 Heart ~ Into the Wild

Welcome to another weekly challenge with Heart 2 Heart!

This weeks challenge theme is INTO THE WILD.  For this challenge you can interpret this in any way you see fit.  Close to My Heart has a paper pack by this name which is one of my absolute favorites!!  Living in Colorado we love our big back yard!! My husband has one hobby ~ Mountain Biking!! I have been wanting to design a fun layout for this.  After seeing Miss Carrie’s Creations June Kit of the Month, I was inspired with her mountains to design this layout.

I used my Cricut to cut the mountains, #optoutside, Mountain bike and mountain scene. I used the Artistry and You Are Here Cartridges.

Here it is with the photos. I still need my husband to sit down with me to do the journaling.

I used the Into the Wild paper pack with New England Ivy, Sapphire, Black, Silver Foil and White Daisy. The ribbon has been retired but I love the green burlap ribbon.

Now it is your time to give it a try and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. You have until July 31th to participate in this challenge or any of the others we have going on this month. We love to see your inspirations!!

Happy Crafting!

Mountain Biker Birthday Card

Today is my husbands birthday!  I love creating unique cards for him and this year is no exception.  He has always loved to ride his mountain bike but when we lived in Louisiana you don’t have a lot of mountains LOL.  When we moved to Washington State he did not really ride which was a bummer.  So when we moved to Colorado three years ago he got back into it in a big way.  So what would be a good card for him? A mountain bike card!!

The mountain bike is from the You Are Here Cricut Cartridge and the mountains are from Dinosaur Tracks. I use New England Ivy, Kraft, White Daisy,  Glacier, Black, and Silver Foil which are all Close to My Heart.  The blue green is from my stash.

Happy Crafting!
