Painted Mason Jar – Color Dare #251

Happy Friday and welcome to another week of the Color My Heart Color Dare.  This week we are featuring  the colors: Gold, Black, Juniper, Lemon & Sorbet.

I wanted to play around with the Flower Market Cricut cartridge and found this sweet jar – since I’ve been seeing lots of painted Mason Jars I thought I’d cut it from the black & white dot B&T.  Those flowers were all layered but went together very quickly.

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!

Bright Birthday – Color Dare # 241

Happy Friday…I’ve been MIA from the Color My Heart Color Dare Blog for a few weeks, but I’m back with some bright cheery colors.  This week we are featuring the colors Lemon, Raspberry, Willow and White Daisy.

I embossed each of my cardstock panels and then layered a strip of white daisy stamped in Lemon.  I love the bright yellow, but it can be hard to see if you don’t use a bold stamp.  My hibiscus is made with the Flower Market cartridge and cut at 1.75.

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!

A Boy with Whimsy

I love this sweet baby elephant…I’ve used it for several cards since the Flower Market cartridge was released last year, but this by far is my favorite!  I think it might be because it’s all BLUE!!!

I reached for my Whimsy Fundamentals and grabbed the Glacier and Crystal Blue papers and ribbon to put together this layered collage card from the Wishes How To Book.  I like all the patterns giving the card lots of texture.

The Fundamentals papers are so versatile without a specific theme they are a great addition to your card making supplies and come in our Whimsy, Adventure & Enchantment color palettes.

Thanks for stopping by…I hope you’ll take a minute and leave me a comment about your favorite Fundamentals collection.

Hello from Washington

Sometimes this is how it all starts, a couple snippets a paper and a few Cricut cuts – in this case a daffodil and a rain boot.  I would love a pair of rain boots on most days in the great Pacific Northwest, but alas they have avoided being added to my overflowing collection of shoes and boots.

Now on to show how it all goes together…

I stamped the background with Lagoon Ink using one of the Flower Market Coordinating Stamp sets – those blotches reminded me of raindrops.  I added the “hello” sentiment another cut from the Flower Market cartridge.

If you have a minute I love to read your comments and you can even let me know if you own rain boots!  Thanks for stopping by!

Springy Hello

Did you see the cute Easter Tags on the Make It From Your Heart blog on Friday?

Although I don’t make Easter Baskets anymore I do make Easter cards, so I just got my Cricut busy cutting all the shapes I needed and luckily they listed the sizes in their post!

I used some papers from the Rustic Fundamentals and a little piece of Seaglass Glitter paper for some sparkle.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing a bit of your Monday with me.  If you have a minute leave me a comment and let me know what your favorite springtime flower is.

Tea for Heart to Heart

This week the theme at the Heart to Heart Challenge blog is Tea Time.  Although the March Close to My Heart Stamp of the month was a fun tea-cup themed stamp set, I decided I wanted to do something a little different.

I grabbed some left over papers from my Sugar Rush paper packet layered them up and stamped one of the sentiments from the SOTM in the bottom corner.  I then cut the cute tea pot and overlay from the Flower Market Cricut cartridge.  You can’t see real well in my photo, but I used the clear shimmer brush on the tea pot and added a clear sparkle gem to the lid.  So easy and fun!

There was a bit of a question if I would get home in time to get my card and post done, but when this girl is on a mission she usually accomplishes it.  I had fun playing along with each of the weekly challenges at Heart 2 Heart this month.  I hope you’ve enjoyed my posts.

I challenge you to stop by one of the many challenge blogs (preferably the Color Dare since I’m a Design Team member) and get some inspiration.
