Cats & Bats – Color Dare #262

No automatic alt text available.

Happy Friday and welcome to another week of the Color My Heart Color Dare.  This week we are featuring  the colors:  Willow, Goldrush, Emerald, Black, Pewter, Pebble, Charcoal and White Daisy.

How are you liking the changes to the Color Dare?  Two weeks should give you plenty of time to get a card made and linked up to our challenge.

I did a fun card with the Cats & Bats papers and stamps from the Cats & Bats Scrapbooking Collection.  The front of my card is cut down 2 inches which leaves a little bit of the inside of the card peeking through.  I used the die cut BOOO! to hid a few of the inside images.  Although from the front my BOOO! is stamped in Pebble it was actually layered on a piece of Gold Rush so that adds a bit of intrigue to the inside of the card as well.

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 get your cards posted by 9:00 CDT on Thursday, October 5th!

Rock & Roll Dragonfly – Color Dare #236

Happy Friday and welcome to another week of the Color My Heart Color Dare.  This week we are featuring  the colors: Pacifica, Emerald, Black & White.

 

I love these deep rich jewel tones, quite different than all the pinks, oranges and lavender I’ve been creating with lately.  My card was quite simple and I used an old favorite rock & roll technique on my dragonfly.

I took a close up so you could maybe see a little better.  First I inked it in black and stamped it and used the thin cut to die cut, then I inked him all up in Emerald and just rolled the tips of the wings in Pacifica die cut and then cut the wings apart and used a tiny bit of foam tape to mount them to the black body.  I finished it off with a couple of black dots on the ends of the wing.

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!

Last week I was vacationing in Phoenix (I’d say soaking up some Vitamin D, but that didn’t happen) and planned to “hook up” with fellow Color Dare DT Member, Sue Reynolds – in the lavender shirt behind me and her neighbor Mel (in the green).  They took me to this really cool scrapbook and stamping store (I forgot the name) but it had so many wonderful things.  It’s a serious wonder we ever got out of there.  That’s where I found the cute stamp set for my card this week.

The stamp set is by Newton’s Nook and came with some cute sentiments, the main image and a cute little clover.  I am really picky when it comes to acrylic stamps and this one passed the “Tracey Test”.  My card features the Close to My Heart Colors Willow and Emerald with some accents of gold shimmer tape and gold glitter gems.

 

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!

Awesome Atlantic Hearts

Do you remember third grade?  I do!  It seems like forever ago, but I still know my times tables 😉  I’m always looking for an excuse to make a card and this one is headed all the way to Texas where it will hopefully brighten a special third-graders day!

I spent some time looking at some “new to me” challenge blogs and then settled with an old favorite The Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.  It’s just hard not to love it since I was once on the DT.

Sketch #174 has some simple lines that I fell right in love with and knew would be a perfect place to show off some of Close to My Heart’s new ribbon!  Yes, ribbon is back in full force in the new catalog – can you see me jumping with joy?

I rotated the sketch counter-clockwise allowing me to use the sentiment I wanted on the front of the card.

That cool B&T paper is from the Fundamental Memo assortment – I feel another pack  purchased in my not-so-distant future!  I stamped some stars (which almost look hand-drawn) in Emerald Ink directly on the B&T and then layered the sentiment square (rectangle) onto a piece of Emerald CS. The card was finished with some Pansy & White striped ribbon a piece of Emerald Ribbon and some Purple Glitter Gems.

Pansy and Emerald are just two of the new colors in the revamped Adventure Color Family and it’s quickly becoming my favorite color family.  The entire Fundamentals Line has been redone so if you don’t have a consultant I’d love to share these new products with you.  Just leave me a comment how to reach you or pop over to my Facebook Page (Papercrafting Princess) where you can message me.
