Friends – Color Dare #305

Happy Friday and welcome to another week of the Color My Heart Color Dare.  This week we are featuring  the colors: Bashful, Blossom & Eggplant.

I reached for the Documented Paper that was sitting on my desk just begging to be used.  It was my favorite paper packet from the Seasonal Expression and now it’s retiring at the end of August.  This paper packet has a quirky friendship stamp that goes with it that has some funny sentiments about friendship and some cute flowers too!

OK, now it’s YOUR turn!  The full details on how to join the fun is in the sidebar of our homepage.  Each color dare is open until 9:00 CDT on Thursday!

The Color My Heart Color Dare Design Team is made up of some uber talented ladies when you visit the homepage…make sure you click on their creations and leave them some love (we love reading your comments).

Thanks for sharing a bit of your day with me…enjoy your weekend.

More Magical

Every good tourist should have a camera and the Magical paper pack gives you a B&T paper that is filled with choices!  My friend Debi G and I had a productive day in the Coop Monday and we put together this cute camera that we saw on Instagram by Aaron Brown (another CTMH Consultant).

What’s special about this card?  It’s got a sneak peak of a brand new color Candy Apple!  I love that we finally have a true red in our color palette, the fact that it works so well with Lagoon is just an added bonus.

I thought I had a pretty colorful little Instax camera – since mine is just white it was fun to dream a little.

I’m linking up with the Three Amigo’s Blast From the Past – using their Challenge #10 Anything Goes!  They are a fun group of ladies…not quite as fun as Double Trouble, but close!

I hope you’ll consider purchasing the Magical paper packet while it’s on special thru September 30th.  It is such a fun, colorful paper good for so much more than just amusement park scrapbooking.

 

Double Trouble #7

Summertime is my favorite season – it means sunshine, swimming pools, sweet tea and ice-cream and best of all August is my birthday month!!!

Our Double Trouble Challenge 7 is all about the Dog Days of Summer.  Trouble Maker would like to know how you deal with the hottest time of the year.  Twisted Sister (that’s me) wants you to stay cool and include your favorite summer beverage or food.  Double Dare wants you to link up to the Summer Challenge at HeARTful Stamping Challenge.

I had this cute Penguin in Paradise stamp set from My Favorite Thing Stamps that I wanted to use.  I started by random stamping a panel of white cardstock with the drinks, hibiscus and beach balls and then colored them in with Copic Markers.  I stamped and colored the penguin, cut him with a Basics Circle Die Cut from Close to My Heart and then popped it up with a spring so it’s all bouncy!

Now it’s your turn…make sure you visit our challenge blog for the instructions on how to link up with us.

I’m just like you…I love to read your comments and I always love it when you answer my questions.  So, what is your favorite way to stay cool during the Dog Days of Summer?

Thanks so much for stopping by – I hope you’re having a good time with the Double Trouble Challenges.

For the Love of Crafting – Color Dare #304

Happy Friday and welcome to another week of the Color My Heart Color Dare.  This week we are featuring  the colors: Eggplant, Linen and Peacock.

I chose to pair the August Stamp of the Month, For the Love of Crafting, with the Fundamentals in Eggplant & Peacock.  My typewriter was stamped directly onto the Linen cardstock.  The sentiment was also stamped on Linen, but I fussy cut them (can you believe it) so I could pop them up individually.  Do you know what card kit this pattern was from?  The first one to tell me will get this card in the mail.

OK, now it’s YOUR turn!  The full details on how to join the fun is in the sidebar of our homepage.  Each color dare is open for two weeks so you have plenty of time to play!Image may contain: text

Do What You Love

I’d rather make cards than do laundry so I think I’m going to try using that excuse next time my Wrangler Wearing Sweetheart runs out of socks, LOL!

My card is made using the last of my Beautiful You paper packet.  I really like the Sapphire against the Bashful.  I stamped the sentiment in Smoothie and added a few Documented gems and light gray ribbon to finish it off.

I appreciate you stopping by and hope you’ll leave a comment I take the time to read each and every one of them.

 

TBT – A Birthday Stash Bashed

It’s my first TBT in August -and my birthday month, along with 5 other people in my family.  When I turned the page in my birthday book I nearly gasped, but I reached into my stash of papers and sat down with this paper and my MIFYH Vol 4.

Although most of these cards are just a simple one layer card – I did use a piece of vellum  to cover all except an oval space declaring “It’s Your Day”.  I thought this was a fun technique to draw your attention to this section of the busy b&t paper.

I considered this stash busted – although I probably could have squeezed another couple of cards out of it, but I just wanted it gone.
