Hope – Atlantic Hearts #286

When I saw this weeks Atlantic Hearts Sketch I knew exactly what I was going to do.  I love it when an idea just pops into my head and I can run with it.

As I mentioned in my previous post the Ribbon Warrior campaign is hitting me close to home and I’m a firm believer that support from friends & family makes a huge difference.

I chose a color palette from the Love of Color – Mint, Linen and Ballerina.  The mint background was embossed with the rose embossing folder and a stitched circle was added in Linen – I then stamped the ribbon and cut with the matching thin cut – I made a banner and stamped Hope as my sentiment.  I finished the card with some sparkles.

I have a dear friend in breast cancer treatment so this card is on it’s way to hopefully cheer her along her journey.

 

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

While at the homepage – check out what the other design team members have created and leave them a little love (comments make our day)!

 

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.

 

Hey Cupcake – Color Dare #292

It’s Friday…time for another Color Dare!

This week the Color My Heart Color Dare Design Team is creating with the colors:  Bashful, Canary, & Linen.

Once again I used a pattern from Make It From Your Heart 4.  If you don’t have this little gem of a book – you need to get it ordered.  I also thought this sweet cupcake from the Festive Birthday card kit needed to find it’s way onto this card.  What’s a birthday without some banners and sparkles?

I hope you’ll take some time to create with us you can click HERE for the details of the Color My Heart Color Dare.

My question today is:  Do you think outside the box and use your card kit stamps for other than how they are packaged?

Thanks so much for stopping by…I hope you enjoyed my artwork.
