Color Dare #378 ~ Love of Color

Happy Friday!  This week we have another Fun Color Dare Challenge for you.  This week for Color Dare #378 it is our Love of Color.  This week our colors are  NEW ENGLAND IVY, PEWTER, SAPPHIRE, CAROLINA, SAFFRON, and SAGE.  Simply choose at least 3 of the Colors – Black and White are neutrals are free.

I found this super cute narwhal stamp set from and knew it would work for this challenge.

I used this fish stencil from Picket Fence on Carolina cardstock. I used sponged Sapphire ink. The stamp set Unicorn of the Sea is also by Picket Fence. I stamped in black ink then used Sage ink to watercolor the narwhals. I used the new Stitched Bracket Thin Cuts to cut the Pewter cardstock. The zip strip is from a retired Seasonal Mix In paper pack. I used White Glitter paper behind the zip strip.

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 #378  or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday, February 6, 2020 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Happy Crafting!

Heart 2 Heart ~ Try Something New

Happy New Year!!! Welcome to another weekly challenge with Heart 2 Heart!

Try something new can be interpreted in many ways. It could be a new technique or a new fancy fold card or even using new products or even new equipment.

For me, my try something new is teaching cardmaking at an elementary school. I have been hosting kids workshops for about 4 months to about 8 kids but today I will be teaching 6 classes at my son’s elementary school. His school is hosting a Pursue Passion Day where the kids sign up for different classes. I will be teaching a class to each grade from kindergarten to 5th grade. Wish me luck!!!

Here is a photo of some of the cards I created for this event. Each child will get to make 2 cards. some are interactive cards like pop ups or movement. Others help them learn techniques. I used a lot of cardstock, some retired cardstock and some retired patten papers.

I am excited to share my passion with our next generation in hopes that it may excite them! Wish me luck as I know it will be a loooong day!

Now it is your time to create something and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. You have until December 31st to participate in this challenge. We love to see your inspirations!!

Happy Crafting!
