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

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!

Monochromatic Valentines

Each of these valentines feature papers from the Adventure Fundamentals paper packets and matching cardstock.  Although I LOVE our seasonal paper packets I also love creating with each of the palettes available in the fundamental paper line.

Each paper packet has matching ribbon and complements so creating is limited only by your creativity.

 

This little piggy from the Punny Pals stamp set is delivering HOGS & Kisses with a Blossom color palette.  I used the large stripe paired with the small hearts for a spunky balance.  The little piggy was outlined with my black fine tip marker and the sentiment was highlighted with pink.

 

 

Next up is a cute dancing giraffe with Emerald Hearts.  I started by embossing the cardstock and then lightly sanding to show the white core of our cardstock.  I then layered on the Emerald Hearts B&T, wrapped my ribbon around and popped up the giraffe panel.  I accessorized my giraffe with a sparkly red glitter heart that I cut on the Cricut.

Last, but certainly not least is my favorite color palette Raspberry!  Would you ever guess that this valentine was made with a Thank You stamp set?  That’s right the Happy Heart stamp set features two thank you sentiments and this great You Make My Heart Happy sentiment along with two scribble hearts.  I accessorized the card with our white & gold ribbon and a single clear sparkle on the heart.

 

I hope you’ll give our Fundamental paper line a try – they coordinate nicely for monochromatic cards, but I’ll be back later this week showing how the papers work nicely together, too!

If you could take a minute and let me know which Valentine is your favorite I’d appreciate the comment.  I read them all and enjoy your thoughts.

This month the rich browns of Espresso are featured in the exclusive Color Club card.  Accented with Bashful Glitter paper and pearls this card also features a sentiment from the Stronger Together disaster relief stamp set.

I am loving the new Basics – from the rich browns to the warm grays – this new family of neutrals is a real show stopper.  What is your favorite color from the new basics collection?

Star Bright – Color Dare 249

 

Happy Friday and welcome to another week of the Color My Heart Color Dare.  This week we are featuring  the colors: Cashmere, Glacier, Lagoon, Sapphire and Whisper and White Daisy.

I’ve been making little cards all week, they are fun to have on hand to stick in a customers order, attach to a gift or hide in a computer bag as a surprise.  I started with just a plain Sapphire star, but it seemed lackluster so I embossed it with the zig-zag embossing folder.

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!

Have a great weekend.
