Just For You – Color Dare #298

TGIF!!!  I’ve been crazy busy in the Craft Coop – convention is NEXT WEEK, but I am happy to report that I’m all ready thanks to my friend and fellow DT member Debi!

The Design Team is playing with the colors Blossom, Linen & New England Ivy this week – such a fun summery combination.  Linen is actually one of my favorite new neutrals – it’s a creamy white and I just love it’s rich tone.

That cute Just for You stamp is from the Stamped With Love stamp set – a cute A sized stamp set with images for the front & back of your cards.

Now it’s your turn to grab your ink and papers and make a project.  You’ll find the rules for the Color My Heart Color Dare here.  Although we list the color names from Close to My Heart they are not required to play along.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hop you find lots of stamping time this summer and will come play along.

 

Ice Cream Treat

If you’ve been following me for anytime you know that I love cards with movement and making them just got so much easier.

I saw a die from Lawn Fawn which makes Magic Slider cards. It’s now happily at home in the Craft Coop.

I grabbed a fun ice-cream themed stamp set from a few years ago and went to work making my card. The big surprise is a gift card attached to the back side of the slider.

Thank you for stopping by for a visit…I hope you can leave a comment with your favorite flavor of ice cream!

Double Trouble #3

Happy Monday are you ready for some trouble?  Double Trouble that is!  I hope you’ve enjoyed our first two challenges and are ready to play again.

Thing 1 and Thing 2 convinced me that we should take a trip to the Beauty Parlor, “trust us” they said.  We each got a new hair-do and challenge you to make a project using the hues.  I’m adding a twist challenging you to use a “string thing” – ribbon, hemp, twine, etc.

 

Thing 2 is daring you to link up to the Color My Heart Color Dare #297, using Glacier, Sorbet & Nutmeg.  Please let us know if you’ve linked up to all three challenges.  We’re looking forward to seeing what you create.

My card started using my wood-grain embossing folder inked with Nutmeg ink on a piece of Glacier cardstock – then layering the elk which was stamped in Nutmeg onto a piece of Sorbet Cardstock.  I tied a piece of burlap ribbon and added a couple of bronze sequins to finish it off.  A masculine birthday card all ready to go in the mail!

I hope you’ll take some time to come play along with us at Double Trouble – remember our Twist and Thing 2 challenges are always optional.  Thanks for taking some time out of your day to visit my blog.  Let me know what you think of the new challenges, by leaving a comment on this post.

Go Where You Dare – Color Dare #297

Happy Friday!  Time for another Color My Heart Color Dare.  If you haven’t had a chance to play with the Color My Heart Color Dare before this might be a good week to start the colors the Design Team has picked is AMAZING!!!  Glacier, Nutmeg & Sorbet it just works so well together.

Were you expecting some pretty flowers cut from the You are Here Cricut collection?  I tried keeping things really simple with the focus on the sentiment panel.  The Glacier ribbon has a gold thread in the middle so I added a few Gold Glitter Gems to tie everything together.

No automatic alt text available.

Now it’s YOUR turn…grab your ink and papers and come join us this week.  You will find all the rules for the Color Dare here.  Although we list the Close to My Heart Colors they are not required for you to play along.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you find lots of stamping time this summer!

Awesome to the Core

The June Stamp of the Month is filled with some fun outline images just waiting to be colored along with some “punny” sayings.

A few weeks ago I saw a technique video on making a wreath with the Misti stamp positioning tool, you might have seen my lemon wreath card, I thought the apples would work well too! I added a banner cut from the Flower Market Cricut cartridge and stamped the sentiment in the middle. The card was finished with a couple of red gems in two of the corners on the main image.

Don’t forget to get your Bushel & a Peck stamp set for $5 with a qualifying order before the end of June.

Thanks for stopping by – I think all my followers are awesome to the core, especially when you leave me a little love!

Ti-grrrr!

It’s a GRRRRReat day to be crafting!  I love the sunshine pouring in the craft room and although it’s highly unusual for me to post twice in one day – heck sometimes it’s unusual for me to post twice in one week –  I wanted to get this cute little tiger card linked up to the Sunny Day Crafting Challenge #23 Tigers.

I’ve been working on projects for the upcoming CTMH convention and my head seems to be on overload so I’m just playing for fun this afternoon.  I love this little tiger from the Punny Pals stamp set and with a matching die-cut it makes him that much cuter!

My card is little but fierce (just 3 X 4 3/4) with a base of Tangerine which I embossed and then layered a band of black cardstock.  The tag was cut with my Cricut in black and white and then stamped with a orange splash from the Brushstrokes stamp set, the tiger was popped up and then the tag was finished with a piece of ribbon and three tiny black dots.

I hope you’ll take a minute and let me know what you’re working on today…I read and appreciate all comments 🙂  Thanks for taking a minute to stop by.

Rock Their Day!

Happy Monday!

This Double Trouble gig has hooked me up with a couple of new challenges and I wanted to see what I could come up with that would fit several of them.

First of all our challenge at Double Trouble is to NOT use patterned paper and we are teamed up with The Three Amigos to use a manual or machine die cut. I stumbled across another challenge called Bitten By The Bug 2 (you have use a Cricut cut) with a Fathers Day theme and I also saw a male theme at Always Fun Challenge.

I think I got them all!

I knew I wanted a guitar and I found it on Cricut Design Space it’s from Rock Princess, but cut in masculine colors! The background ink splotches are a retired Close to My Heart set called Brush Strokes and the sentiment is also a retired set called Happy Everything.

If you’ve never participated in a challenge I’d like to “challenge you” to give it a try. It really is a fun way to get some inspiration in card making.

Thanks so much for stopping by…I hope you’ll take a minute to leave me a comment, I read each and everyone of them.
