Welcome to another week of Color Dare!  We have another great Inspiration Photo – FALL. Pick colors that you see in the photo and BLACK and WHITE are free but NO other neutrals!

This photo screams of fall colors for me. Here is what I came up with.

For this card I used the Hawthorn Paper Pack, Seasonal Mix In, with French Vanilla, Evergreen, and Sangria Cardstock. I used the Some Kind of Wonderful stamp set and thin cuts. I used the Rose Gold Loose Sequins which are still available. And of course it had to be a shaker!

Halloween Card

I have a fun card I created using the new Fa-Boo-Lous Halloween Stamp & Thin Cuts.

I started by using our Stencil Sheets to cut a circle. Next I sponged the blues and purples on the background leaving the center for the moon. Then I reversed and covered the blues and purple and sponged the moon. I then added a few of the clouds which I hand cut. I stamped the sentiment in Black Pigment and then used Clear Embossing Powder.

I then sponged a second circle like the moon and cut it using the Shaker Window Thin Cuts. I then used the Loose Gold Sequins.

I cut the stars and top stitched ring in Pansy. I stamped the sentiment Pansy ink. The cauldron and witch hat were stamped in Intense Black Ink and colored with my new Spectrum Noir Tri-blend markers. I used a few of the Loose -Crafty sequins and added a touch of Diamond Stickles.

Heart 2 Heart ~ On the Border

Welcome to another weekly challenge with Heart 2 Heart!

This weeks challenge theme is ON THE BORDER.  For this challenge you can interpret this in any way you see fit. The first thing I  thought about was using some border stamps or possibly our thin cuts.  Here is what I created.

I had this idea to design a back to school card for my son to give to his teacher on the first day of school.  I really love the stamp set Making the Grade and wanted to create with it. I love the writing lines stamp and had an idea to use this border stamp as the main focus.  I stamped it on Lemon, Willow, Bluebird, Candy Apple, and Nectarine Cardstock.  I also love the cute pencil, ruler and apple. I stamped these then fussy cut them and colored with my alcohol markers.  I then used my Silver Sequins and created a shaker.  I love how easy it is to create a shaker as you simply need Shaker Foam & Acetate and Thin Cut Shaker Window & Confetti.

I am also linking up with a couple challenges this week:

Double Trouble Challenge ~ for their Something Anything Challange.

Simon Says Challenge ~ Bright and Cheerful

Now it is your time to give it a try and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. You have until August 3rd to participate in this challenge. We love to see your inspirations!!

Technique Hop – Mix It Up!

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!

This month we are focusing on Mix It Up.   With every Idea book there is a fun Seasonal Mix In paper pack.  For this hop we can feature this pack or mix up different paper packs.  This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork. If you are coming from KATY TAYLOR’S Blog, you are on the right track!

I decided to focus on the Seasonal Mix In paper pack.

This pack features black and whites with Ballerina. I decided to use the Share the Joy thin cut as I am loving this set!!  The sentiment is from the Share the Joy – Bunches of Joy Stamp Set. For embellishments I used the Hello Pumpkin Shapes and the White Ribbon.  When I saw those cute black flowers in the Loose Crafty Sequins, I started to save them because I envisioned using just them in a shaker.  I know you are probably thinking I am crazy to have picked then out but I am so glad I did!

To make the mini-shakers I used last months Technique I showcased in using flip flaps to make shakers.  I used a flip flap and cut it to 1.25 x 1.25 inch squares. Then using the circles to help be the guide to place the foam tape.

Thanks for stopping by!  Please continue onto TERRY METZGER’S BLOG where you will find some additional artwork!  Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought and happy hopping!

Convention Time ~ Roommate Gifts

I am SOOOOO excited!  Today the Close to My Heart Convention starts!! I am in Provo, Utah to celebrate in the excitement.  It has been three years since I have been able to attend so I am so excited to be back.  I thought to celebrate I would share the gifts I made for my roommates.  There is a tradition to make something crafty for your roommates.  I decided to make Postit Note Holders.

Since it it all about crafting what would be better than using the Craft On papers with the Crafting Shapes Thin Cuts.  I made the tops Shakers using the Shaker Window & Confetti Thin Cuts with Shaker Window Foam & Acetate. I used Pixie cardstock as the base.  It was cut at 3 1/2 inches by 7 inches.  I scored the base at 3 1/4 and 3 3/4 inches.  I used some ribbon from my stash to make it look like a gift.

I changed up the colors I used to cut the Crafting Shapes Thin Cuts.  I used the Loose Crafty Sequins and Silver Foil Paper for the scissors. I couldn’t resist making one for myself.

Heart 2 Heart ~ Geometric

Welcome to another weekly challenge with Heart 2 Heart!

For this challenge it is Geometric.  I looked up the definition of geometric and it is using straight or curved lines in designs or outlines. Another is of or relating to art based on simple geometric shapes (such as straight lines, circles, or squares). I decided to create a circular card for this challenge.

Close to My Heart ~ CTMH ~ CatScrapbooking ~ Shaker Card~ One Year Older ~ Party Balloons

I went to my cricut to look for a circle card ~ which I can say I have never remember creating one ~ I found on the Art Philosophy Cartridge which has been retired.  I thought the One Year Older Stamp Set would work great for this card.  I also paired it with the Party Balloons Stamp Set. The striped paper is from True Love Paper Pack.  To make the shaker you do need a few key items such as the Shaker Window Thin Cuts, Shaker Window with Acetate, and Loose Sequins – Silver.

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

I decided to use Glacier, Sugarplum, Ballerina, Sage, Silver, White and Black.  Basically all colors but Pewter.

For this card I used Sugarplum as the base.  The Ballerina strip is from Something Fierce paper pack.  I used Glacier for the sentiment and used Silver embossing powder. The stamp set is called Critters Ever After from Lawn Fawn.

The base of the shaker is sponged using a stencil I made using a Cricut cut.  I used my sponge and inked with Ballerina, Sage, Glacier and Sugarplum. I used Sugarplum, Ballerina, and Glacier ink to color the unicorn and then used my shimmer brush to add shine.  I used the Shaker Thin Cuts to cut the pieces of the shaker card including the Silver Glitter paper.  I filled the shaker with Loose Sequins – Silver and the used Sugarplum Glitter paper to cut the stars.

June SOTM ~ Ice Cream Dream

Welcome to the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!!  This month we are featuring June’s stamp of the month ~Ice Cream Dream (S1506) a set of 7.

JuneBadgeIf you are coming here from the wonderfully talented WENDY COFFMAN’s Blog, then you are in the right spot ~ 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  consultants on Melinda’s blog HERE.

1909426_10206555217145409_3293653040187059854_oI adore this stamp set as it is fun and cheerful.  I have so many ideas for this stamp set mostly it involves kids (big and small) birthday cards.  I feel like most of the cards I create are geared to adults and I could really use some fun ones.  I have been seeing a lot of shaker cards being created on Pinterest, I have been inspired to give one ago.  I had used shakers on some scrapbook layouts about 10 years ago so it would be fun to do one on a card.   And to me this stamp set would be perfect!!

Ice Cream Dream ~ June 2015 SOTM ~ Shaker card ~ catscrapbooking.comFor this project I used the following products ~ Adventure Fundamental papers, Lagoon and White Daisy cardstock.  The “happy birthday” if from Joyful Birthday B1419.  I used my Shin Han markers to color in the adorable puppy.  I did use some metal dies to cut my circle but it could be done using a punch, Cricut or Silhouette.  I used foam sheets from a craft store to act as the spacer between the card base and the top.  I love CTMH sequins but I used some from my stash to float in the card.

Your next stop is along this hop is GINA BRANDSTETTER’ Blog, so hop on over and see what wonderful creation she has for you today.

Happy Crafting!
