Hello Color My Heart Fans! What a great way to close out January....a crazy color scheme! ;) This was so much fun to try, you really need to give it a go! Here is a rainbow list of colors to include this week:
Ruby, Cotton Candy, Goldrush, Juniper, Twilight, and Gypsy (whew!)
What to do with a crazy color scheme? Well, random stamping, of course! ;) I created an 8 x 10 shadow box framed piece of art.
I random stamped with the retired Close to My Heart Rugged Flowers My Acrylix stamps on a sheet of White Daisy Cardstock. I could then carefully choose which section of the paper best suited the area of the shadow frame that would show around the quote I was adding. I popped up some elements of the images and added Bitty Pearls to the centers of some of the small flowers.
I double matted this wonderful sentiment from the brand new My
Acrylix, Scrapbook Sentiments--Poets. This beautiful set is available
from Close to My Heart beginning February 1st! Alas, I was so excited while making the shadowbox, that I accidentally grabbed a sheet of Crystal Blue Cardstock instead of Twilight or Juniper!!! Oh my....
Can you see my sparkle? Glitter Glitz Gel added a great bit of shine to the Juniper colored flowers.
Well, since I did kind of inadvertently cheat on the first project by adding a new color to the mix, I decided to use the rest of the patterned paper to create some sympathy cards as well and play by the rules, lol.
I cut two scalloped borders from the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge on Juniper cardstock.
I wanted to give it a bit of dimension, so I stamped this flower again and cut it out to pop up with some foam tape. The sentiment is from the beautiful Close to My Heart Words of Comfort.
Then I remembered to do what I have been wanting to do with my cards--FINALLY! I added a little floral stamp, also from Words of Comfort, on the inside of the card, and also to the envelope flap. I love how that simple image ties everything together.
Now it's YOUR turn to sparkle! Go ahead and make a paper project using these colors from Close to My Heart (or similar if you don't have them) and link it up to the Color Dare over at Color My Heart. You have to link up by Thursday the 31st before 9 pm CST. Don't forget to add a link to the Color My Heart Blog if you enter! You could be the next one sporting the Color Dare badge on YOUR blog! ;) See you soon!
