Stamptacular Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stamptacular Blog Hop!

For this hop you will be hopping with the same talented Makers who bring you the Stamp of the Month blog hop. We are featuring the stamp sets. This month Close to My Heart has an amazing sale going on right now called the Stamptacular! You can find more information on this sale HERE. On this hop there will be sure to see some beautiful artwork!

If you are just arriving here from WENDY KESSLER’S Blog, or just starting at my blog then you are on the right track ~ Welcome!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around. If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating Makers on Melinda’s blog HERE.   For this hop we have about 20 Makers participating and you are going to see some fabulous artwork.

I love the Olivia Besties stamp set and thin cuts. I had so much fun playing with her and making these fun cards. I used Peacock Feathers and Mowed Lawn to create the background along with some stencils I have. I added the cute Springtime Flower Sequins. I used the Border Birthdays stamp set and thin cuts with White pigment ink and white embossing powder.

For these cards I was inspired by some that Gina Brandstetter created using a fun sketch that Close to My Heart designed. I turned the sketch to the side. The sentiment comes form the Sunny Days Ahead.

Your next stop is along this hop is MELISSA ROBINSON’S Blog  so hop on over and see what wonderful creation she has for you today.

Happy Crafting!

Color Dare #433 ~ Tic-Tac-Toe Board

Welcome to Color Dare #433!! This weeks color dare is a fun Tic-Tac-Toe board which uses random colors and not based on a paper pack. You can choose any column, row, or diagonal. Blacks, Whites, Neutrals, Gold and Silver are FREE. We love to see your ideas so pleas play along with us!

I could not resit playing with some of the new products that Close to My Heart will be releasing in just a couple of days. So you are getting a SNEAK PEEK at a couple. I went with the diagonal Lilac, Flamingo and Glacier. I did add in silver and some neutrals.

The sneak peeks are the heart paper which if from the upcoming Seasonal Mix-ins, the adorable girl is Olivia which is one of four cute girls who will be making their debut. The other two sneak peaks are the sentiment and the dots. I used the Make it From Your Heart Volume 4 to design this card.

I used the Flamingo Shimmer trim and Flamingo Shimmer Brush. to add the pops of Flamingo with the Lilac and Glacier. The Dots are also flamingo.

I added a Silver Foil Paper behind the White Daisy. Olivia was colored using my Spectrum Noir Markers. I did add a touch of Silver Marker to her bracelet and earrings, which I hope you can see here.

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 #433  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, March 11, 2021 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Happy Crafting!
