 Hello my CMHCD friends,

For today I am sharing our next challenge at Color My Heart Color Dare. You have a pick of at least three colors from the picture provided and remember, black and white are free! I would like to ask you to please identify your color choices in your blog post. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

I decided I wanted to follow the bird theme for this card. I stenciled a feather background and used a cute little bird sitting on the sentiment. I colored the bird with Crayola colored pencils! I am in the process of cleaning and organizing my craft space. Around the mess, I saw the Crayola pencils and used those instead of grabbing something else. 

_________

Now for our challenge!



Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #454
I used mostly purples, blues, and pinks!!!

The circles were embossed using iridescent paper glaze at each of the corners for balance. It seemed to fit nicely with the font of the 'hello' sentiment.

I triple stacked the sentiment using this pale pink cardstock. However, it did look a bit bland against the paper glazed dots so I added some Wink of Stella to the 'hello'. It added just enough sparkle and with a few gemstones, my project was complete. My craft area? Well, that is another story!

Well, thank you again for taking the time out of your busy day to visit my corner of the internet. I do hope you will join us at Color My Heart Color Dare and play along.

Lots of good crafting vibes are headed your way. I hope you all have a fantastic day and please stay safe and stay healthy. Until then take care and we will see you soon!

Cassettes

 Hello All,

Welcome to another challenge at Color My Heart Color Dare! For this challenge, you must use the colors that are specified. Remember black, white, and silver are free. 

So what does this color palette spark? An occasion, an image, or maybe something in nature? For me, it brought back memories from days gone by. The years of mixtapes and retro color; yes friends, the 1980s! Here is my card for today, enjoy! 

Stripes using this color palette remind me of the 80's mixtapes. Remember when a song came on the radio and you pressed play and record at the same time but of course, the DJ, was always talking at the beginning of the song.. UGH! Oh, what we had to endure as kids.

I colored swatches on a piece of scrap paper in the same colors as the stripes. I then die-cut the stars and hearts using the swatches. This way I had a perfect color match between elements.

The cassette tape is popped off the page by dimensional tape to give it a more realistic look. Another element is the piece of acetate where you see the tape. Remember winding up your cassette with a pencil?

Well, thank you again for taking the time out of your busy day to visit my corner of the internet. I do hope you will join us at Color My Heart Color Dare and play along.

Rainbow Feathers

Hello my CMHCD friends,

For today I am sharing our next challenge at Color My Heart Color Dare. You have a pick of at least three colors from the picture provided and remember, black and white are free! I would like to ask you to please identify your color choices in your blog post. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

As some of you know peacocks are my favorite animals. They are colorful and full of attitude which is what I love about them! They seem to act like they own the world and have the feathers to prove it! The inspiration picture isn't a photo of course but it does illustrate the magnificence of this creature. I saw this stamp on clearance and couldn't add it to my cart fast enough. I love the image, sentiment, and its potential for color.

This was stamped on watercolor paper. This paper is very coarse and lumpy for stamping. I have to stamp several times to get a clear image. In this case, however, I embraced the inconsistent stamping. When I was done brushing on the color I came in with a black Copic and colored the center with some true black. The outer edges were left with partial stamping. I left it because it added a sense of dreaminess and wonder.

When I was done adding color I added a few white dots with a gel pen and some black dots in groups of three around the edges and in the middle of the image. I think it added interest and whimsy.

Well, thank you again for taking the time out of your busy day to visit my corner of the internet. I do hope you will join us at Color My Heart Color Dare and play along.

Hello my CMHCD friends,

This has to be one of my favorite techniques; colored pencil on dark cardstock. This was stamped direct on paper and then colored using my waxy colored pencils.

However, before I add the color I used an aqua pen and white pigment to paint in the areas I was going to use the color. It created a truer hue, saturation, and less colored pencil application. I just love all the colors popping off the dark cardstock. It really makes for a fantastic effect.

After coloring the images I noticed its waxy texture took out some of the sharpness of the stamped image. No problem! I kept the stamp in my MISTI from the first time I stamped it. All I had to do was put the base right back in and restamp it. After stamping it again the image was clean and crisp.

Well, thank you again for taking the time out of your busy day to visit my corner of the internet. I do hope you will join us at Color My Heart Color Dare and play along.

You&Me

Hello All, 

Another challenge at Color My Heart Color Dare! For this challenge, you must use the colors that are specified. Remember black, white, and silver are free. So what does this color palette spark? An occasion, an image, or maybe something in nature. For me it sparked butterflies. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

Today is our 20th wedding anniversary. I made this card from a new to me but older SU stamp set. I liked the background text coordinating with the bold text. It is hard to see but I promise you will see it in the close-up shot.

The horizontal border was stamped once then I flipped the cardstock and stamped it again. This is a fantastic way to know you are getting symetry and balance on both sides.

You can see the background text under the bold text. I stamped it using contour ink from HA. It is very light but dark enough to frame the bold sentiment.


Well, thank you again for taking the time out of your busy day to visit my corner of the internet. I do hope you will join us at Color My Heart Color Dare and play along.

Cupcakes

 Hello Everyone,

For today I will be playing along with Twofer Card Challenge and AAA Birthday. Their challenge word was well.... challenging; the word, cupcakes. Here are my cards for today, enjoy!

When you think of cupcakes the first thing that comes to mind is a birthday. For me, it was nothing else. How am I going to showcase two cards with the same image that has different occasions/themes? Okay Twofer, game on!!

First Card
Theme: complete snark!

This is an all-occasion card that can be used for any foodie, baker or anyone who likes to eat. I found this sentiment stamp and laughed out loud! The card features a cupcake full of frosting, but when you lift the flap it reveals the muffin, and the wonderful 'You're Welcome' sentiment presents itself.
.
It is also a traditional top folding card where I can put my equally snarky message. I added a shimmery cardstock to the back of the card for dimension and even more interest.

Second Card
Theme: Birthday

So here is the traditional birthday card that features the cupcakes from the first card that are colored using ROY G BIV color scheme. 

The 'Hey Cupcake' was stamped using VersaMark Ink then sprinkled a tiny amount of powder for each color. I then used VersaMark again this time, white powder and set.

The Second Card
   

Thank you so much for stopping by and I do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. Lots of good crafting vibes headed your way. I hope you all have a fantastic day and stay crafty my friends.


All the best,

Ocean Wave

Hello All,

Today I will be playing along with The Male Room, Color Throwdown, and Freshly Made Sketches. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

This is a one-layer card featuring layered stamping. There is a lot of movement and energy to this card. I can actually hear the ocean wave! Ahhh... Relaxing.

The stamp set is from The Ton. It has three stamp layers in colors that I used from Color Throwdown. The little ocean sliver on the bottom of the card is my favorite. I think it gives anticipation to what the wave will do with that calm water.

Like I said lots of energy! I thought this sentiment set the mood for the card perfectly.

Challenges Entered:
The Male Room: TMR#150
Color Throwdown: ctd643
Freshly Made Sketches: FMS486
As you can see I flipped the sketch on its side.

 

Thank you so much for stopping by and I do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. Lots of good crafting vibes headed your way. I hope you all have a fantastic day and stay crafty my friends.


All the best,
