Color Dare #330 ~ Tic-Tac-Toe ~ I Heart Us

This week we have another Tic-Tac-Toe Color Dare Challenge for you.  This week for Color Dare #330 it will be using the CTMH color palette from I HEART US. Please use and identify the three colors in a row of your choice; however, we will allow any or all other colors from the Challenge Board to be included. You can check out the rules on our blog.

I decided to go diagonally with Pixie, Bluebird and Lagoon.  I added in Black and White as my neutrals.

For my card I decided to use the Sponging and Droplet technique with was recently shared on the Close to my Heart Blog. I also used the I Heart Us Cardmaking Stamp Set.

For the background I sponged Lagoon, Bluebird and Pixie onto a piece of White Cardstock.  I then spritzed it with the Spritz Cleaner and also placed larger droplets by unscrewing the top.

I used a bit of the Silver Embellishing Thread and the Silver Glitter Gems. I stamped the leaves with Lagoon ink on Lagoon paper and Versamark ink on Lagoon then used Clear Embossing Powder. The flowers are colored with Ink and Watercolor brushes.

The final touch was to use the Clear Shimmer Brush to ad a bit of sparkle to the flower.  I realize it is hard to see in the photos.  I also used the Stitched Square Thin Cuts.

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 #330 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday, February 28, 2019 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Happy Crafting!

June Stamp of the Month Blog Hop ~ A Bushel & A Peck

Welcome to the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!! This month we are featuring May’s stamp of the month ~ A BUSHEL & A PECK (S1806) a set of 15.

You can’t help but fall in love with adorable girl.  So of course I wanted to focus on her.

So I had an idea to sponge an apple behind this cute little girl.  I used the apple Cricut cut from Artbooking. I sliced the apple with a card base shape and then cut.  I then used the pieces to mask off the areas like this.

I used  my scissors to cut the stem and leaf so they were separate pieces.  I placed the apple and stem pieces to sponge the leaf with Fern.  I then placed the leaf piece and removed the stem to sponge in the stem area using Nutmeg and Espresso inks. Next I sponged the apple.

Placing the stem and leaf pieces I sponged the apple in Ruby.

I used my ShinHan markers to color the little girl and stamped the sentiment on Fern cardstock.

If you love this stamp set you will want to be sure you purchase it this month as it is only available the month of June and if you spend $50 on qualifying product it could be yours for $5!!
