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!

I am in full fall mode and I have sunflowers by my back door so that was the inspiration I took with my card.  I used one of the focal pieces of B&T from the kit to tie in all the colors of our challenge.  My large sunflower was cut using the Cricut Flower Market Cartridge and then popped up on the top panel of my card.  Burlap Ribbon from the retired basics collection wraps around my card and then I popped up my sentiment on a scalloped circle from the Art Philosophy cartridge.  I scattered a few Bronze Sequins to add a little bling.

OK, now it’s YOUR turn!  The full details on how to join the fun is in the sidebar of our homepage.  Remember each of our Color Dare Challenge is open for two weeks so you have until November 9th to get your project submitted.

Stronger Together

One of my favorite things about Close to My Heart is their response to disasters.  The Stronger Together stamp set was released in response to the recent hurricanes in the United States and the wildfires in both the United States and Canada.  All proceeds from the sale of this $13.95 stamp set will be donated to the Red Cross.

I love the mixed fonts of these sentiments – they can be used for so many situations and as the name states we truly are Stronger Together!

My card has a panel that has been embossed with the Rose Embossing folder on white daisy cardstock cut just 1/4 inch smaller than the base card, a layer of Black, Bashful and White are layered and then popped up with Thin 3D foam tape.  The ribbon from the Flower Market Cricut Cartridge was cut from Bashful Glitter paper and also popped up, the sentiment was stamped directly on the white panel with black ink.

I hope you’ll consider purchasing the Stronger Together stamp set.  You can order it from my website by clicking on stamps and then charity or by clicking here.

Thanks for stopping by!  I love reading your comments so I hope you’ll take an extra minute and leave me a little love.

Painted Mason Jar – Color Dare #251

Happy Friday and welcome to another week of the Color My Heart Color Dare.  This week we are featuring  the colors: Gold, Black, Juniper, Lemon & Sorbet.

I wanted to play around with the Flower Market Cricut cartridge and found this sweet jar – since I’ve been seeing lots of painted Mason Jars I thought I’d cut it from the black & white dot B&T.  Those flowers were all layered but went together very quickly.

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!

Bright Birthday – Color Dare # 241

Happy Friday…I’ve been MIA from the Color My Heart Color Dare Blog for a few weeks, but I’m back with some bright cheery colors.  This week we are featuring the colors Lemon, Raspberry, Willow and White Daisy.

I embossed each of my cardstock panels and then layered a strip of white daisy stamped in Lemon.  I love the bright yellow, but it can be hard to see if you don’t use a bold stamp.  My hibiscus is made with the Flower Market cartridge and cut at 1.75.

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!
