Mountain Bike Birthday Card

So tomorrow is my husband’s birthday and I have been laid out with the crud for four days. I totally forgot to get the ingredients at the store when I when on Monday since that is when I started to crash. Thankfully I spent a bit of time on Sunday to make his birthday card!!

My husband loves to Mountain Bike so I wanted to design a card around his passion. I had this idea to make it a slider style card and then realized as I was cutting the pieces it may be hard with the bike tires being open. So I added the brown circle to the front tire to help make it move. I cut the trees and mountains using my Cricut.

The quote is perfect for him and is from a retired stamp set. I sponged the background with Bluebird, then spritzed with Close to My Heart’s stamp cleaner. I am excited to give this card to him and hope that I will be back in the land of the living again soon.

Happy Crafting!

Color Dare #339 ~ Tic-Tac-Toe Mix Up

This week we have another Fun Color Dare Challenge for you.  This week for Color Dare #339 we have our popular Tic-Tac-Toe board with a mix of colors.  For this challenge you can use any diagonal, row or column, you can add in any of the other colors and Neutrals are free!

I went with Fern, Raspberry and Carolina with neutrals.

To create the cloud background I cut cloud shapes on my Cricut and used them as a mask. I used Carolina ink and my sponge to apply the ink.  The grass was cut using Fern cardstock with using one of the Decorative Border Thin Cuts. The stamp set is one from Technique Tuesday, Henrietta Hedgehog. I used my Copic markers to color.  I figured this would make a fun birthday card or really a card just to brighten someone’s day.

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 #339 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday, May 2, 2019 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.


Happy Crafting!
