It's A Banner Day

I've been wanting to try the card pattern #24 from the new Make It From Your Heart Vol. 5 and when the color challenge from Color My Heart came up that gave me the color inspiration I needed to make this card. I sponged a light background of clouds from my old time CTMH cloud stencil with Lagoon ink. I rounded up some background textured papers for the colors, cut the banners and put it all together.

Use these colors from Color My Heart for your own special project.

A Cheerful Hello

To The Ladies at Color My Heart
Hello Ladies,  Your color challenges have been fun to play with. Since I don't have ink for Desert Rose or Cinnamon I used cardstock for my colors. My three colors are peach, desert rose, and sage. No stamping on this card. All die cuts with CTMH cardstock colors and some CTMH paper. 

Come play with us at Color My Heart each week with a new challenge.

Tic Tac Toe Time

At Color My Heart

We often get to play Tic Tac Toe at Color My Heart Color Dare. This week I chose the diagonal colors Carolina, Toffee, and Scarlet. The flower from 3-D Flower Thin Cuts is made with Carolina CS, a Scarlet center and some Toffee leaves. Adding a Scarlet heart with a toffee border and a toffee greeting completes the card.

Color Dare #446

With Sapphire, Lemonade, and Pebble
Got a new die cut flower set to play with so I had to play at Color My Heart with the colors from challenge #446. Went way back to 2018 to find the sapphire dotted btp for my blue. Used lemonade for the flowers and pebble for the leaves. The sentiment is stamped with sapphire ink. The flower centers are sapphire acrylic dots. 

Come play at Color My Heart each week with a new challenge every Friday.

A Postal Greeting

With Love
I was inspired by Melanie Richards with her
After seeing her card I remembered I too had a set of floral die cuts that I had not used yet, so I wanted to give it a try. I used the colors Flamingo, Blue Belle, Mink, and New England Ivy along with some Black Burst embellishments I also used a stamp set from way back, Post Card-Travel Series. So, now I'm ready to send some Love with a postal greeting.

Come play Crazy 8 with us at Color My Heart.

It's Tic Tac Toe Time

At Color My Heart
Using the Tic Tac Toe board below from Color My Heart I used the bottom row for my card: Glacier, Mink, and Sapphire. I had to go way back to find some BTP papers with Sapphire and Mink. I did use the mink papers in the current mix-in paper pack. I really like the combination of Mink with Sapphire so I just added a touch of Glacier for an accent color. The Mink flower is a White Daisy flower sponged with the Mink ink pad.

Color Wheel

At Color My Heart
The challenge at Color My Heart using the Color Wheel was a real challenge. I went to the CTMH color wheel at Make it From Your Heart to see which CTMH colors fit into the color wheel at Color My Heart. I finally decided on Sundance(from Yellow-Orange), Lemonade(from Yellow), and Green Apple(from Yellow-Green). I also used my favorite sentiment from Friendship is a Blessing stamp set  along with the new tags from the Mix In paper pack. The flowers are stamped with Sundance ink on Lemonade cardstock and the leaves are stamped on the light side of Green Apple with Green Apple ink.

Be sure to share your Color Wheel project at Color My Heart.

Balloons are cut on the light side of the cardstock and stamped 
with the polka dots using the same ink except the 
Blue Belle balloon has Sapphire polka dots.
