Color Challenge - Bluebird

Remember the Thoughtful Bird?
A color challenge from Heart 2 Heart.
This is a Bluebird from the Thoughtful Bird 
stamp set and Thin Cuts. I used bluebird 
first generation, second generation and Carolina 
for the bird.  The sentiment is Bluebird and 
the card is mounted on Bluebird cardstock. 
Share with us  your Bluebird colored project

Spruced Up

With Tic Tac Toe
Inspiration comes from Tic Tac Toe Color Dare #377.
I used the bottom row with Mink for the base,
 New England Ivy and Mink prints with a Sangria 
colored bird. The bird is colored using the 
reverse masking technique.
Stair Step Card

Choose your Tic Tac Toe colors and share with 

Reverse Masking
Masking is when you mask an image (the bird) and stamp around it with the branches.
Reverse masking is masking the surrounding area of an image to color the image.
To make a reverse mask stamp the image (birds) on some glossy cardstock. Cut out the image of the bird. Lay the cut out over the bird and color it with your ink pad and a sponge.

Heart 2 Heart

Meets Atlantic Hearts
Before there was Thin Cuts there was fussy cutting. 
Recently I have decided to fussy cut and save
 money. Way back when I started at CTMH 
we had to fussy cut everything. So, for me,
 it seems to come naturally. If you don;t like to cut 
out images then Thin Cuts are for you. So, cut some 
images your way and share at Heart 2 Heart.
The sketch below at Atlantic Hearts is 
the inspiration for this card. Give it a try.

Something New

A Spinner Card

Heart 2 Heart invited us to try something new 
in the new year. So...I decided to give the new 
Spinner Thin a try. This thin cut set goes with 
2 stamp sets: Rainbow Wishes and I Chews You. 
I used the I Chews You stamp set to make this fun 
Valentine card. Now it's your turn to show us 
your new creation and share at Heart 2 Heart.

It's All About the Blues

Sapphire, Bluebird, and Carolina
These CTMH blue colors made a great birthday 
card for my brother. I wanted to use the Shaker 
Window Thin cut without making a shaker card. 

So grab your blues and create a project to 
share at Color My Heart.
