Colour Dare #368 Horn of Plenty Colours

The Horn of plenty Colours are just like our Close to My Heart Hawthorn Paper Packet. I used the Hawthorn paper packed to make this card. I cut the squares to size using the papers and cut the Multi Square Windows Thin Cuts in charcoal cardstock. I stamped the Hawthorn—Scrapbooking Stamp + Thin Cuts but didn't have the thin cuts so fussy cut the leaf - I used the Rock & Roll technique to ink the stamps up using two colours of inks. I stamped the "Thinking of you" from Say It in Style stamp set onto Linen cardstock and cut the cardstock into a pendant. Stuck it on with 3D Foam tape. Some of the squares were a bit tricky to stick down but I managed with not too many gaps.

I used the lovely Craft On Paper Packet to make this card. Using the yellow gingham paper and the flowers and dots. The Thank you was from the Stamp of the Month last month. 3 black dots finished it off. 
The white daisy cardstock thank you had the edge coloured with black ink by running the cardstock backward and forward directly on the ink pad. Added with a bit of 3D foam tape and it stands up. Simple and effective card.

#CTMHVandra, Colour Dare Challenge, color dare, TicTacToe, flowers, Random Stamping, cardmaking, twine, friendship, #CTMHeverylittlething, Stamp of the Month, hello, thanks,

This week's challenge Colour Dare #360

Choose from these Tic Tac Toe colours - a line along, down or diagonal. Black, White, Silver and Gold are free. You are invited to participate in this challenge too. Go to the link for Colour Dare #360 and add your entry.

I chose the bottom line - a choice of one neutral (I chose Heather), with Willow and Lemon. 

The Heather is the cardstock backing and the Thick Twine. The Willow Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad is the green title from this months stamp of the Month Random Act of Cardness—September Stamp of the Month  and the Lemon Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad I used for random stamping the background in a subtle way with the small lemon flowers. This stamp comes from the Every Little Thing Cardmaking Workshop Kit

I used foam tape for the white cardstock with the Willow title, tombow tape runner for the heather cardstock and glue dots for adhering the twine.

Colour Dare #358 Back to School Inspiration

Inspiration Photo - Back to School Theme

I decided to make something a little different, I decided to make a Welcome Back Banner for my workmate Meg who has been on leave for about a month. I pulled out my Pacifica, Lemon, Cranberry and Emerald cardstock and cut 3 inch strip and then cut them into a bunting shapes. 

The white letters are cut with the ABC Thin Cuts and I stuck the letters on with Tombow adhesive, then onto my old black and white twine with washi tape. The length of the twine was determined by what was left on the role. I didn't measure it at all. 

I'm going to put the bunting up in our office to welcome my workmate back. I've missed her. Primary colours are really fun. It would have also looked good with Black letters but I ran out of black cardstock and need to re-stock.

Colour Dare #356 Silver or Gold

You are invited to participate in this challenge too. Go to the link for Colour Dare #356 and add your entry.

I have been quite ill this week with a head cold and running nose, tissues were my friend all week. So I decided with this challenge I would make myself a get well card :) 

The colours I chose for this card are Raspberry (hot pink) and Pixie (light pink) plus the silver glitter paper. 

I used the pink paper from the  Workshops Your Way® Craft On Scrapbooking Kit 
for the cute little pink hearts paper and Silver Glitter PaperThe twine was like the current Whisper Thick Twine but in pixie pink. I used 3D foam tape to hold it up and stamped in raspberry. I had to mask the Soon to put it below the Get well to fit the white daisy cardstock I used.

My daughter played along with the same colour scheme and used Little Aussies 
stamp set which is really cute. She used a circle thin cut shape to mask the circle and sponged raspberry ink in the circle and stamped over in black ink. then used the hearts to do some random stamping in first and second generation. She finished with some silver shimmer trim! Super cute thank you card.
