As I look out my window at the quiet iciness of winter, I was inspired to create this bright card for the Color My Heart Dare challenge. I know that, in a few months, once again, things will be made new and the bold colors of spring would be right outside my door. Isn’t it just ♥incredible♥ how God makes all things new again?!
For this Color My Heart Dare challenge, we have a fun ♥Tic-Tac-Toe board♥ inspired by our I Heart Us Collection. You can select Row, Column or Diagonal palette of colors to create with and add additional colors from the board if you wish. I chose to use Pixie, Bluebird, and Lagoon with a touch of Mint, Raspberry, and Black.
I will be recreating this card in a live video later this month, so, instead of telling you how I made it, I am going to give you a tip for using our Fancy Tags Thin Cuts. When these Thin Cuts first arrived last April, I cut out one of each image from some scrap cardstock. These cut-outs are in a bag which hangs above my desk and can be pulled out anytime to lay atop a project.
As you can see here, I tried a few different tags on my card to see which look I preferred. This saves me quite a few steps (and supplies) when I am designing. I am able to play with the different Thin Cut images and see what each one will look like on my project before cutting them out of my paper.
I did finally decide on a tag that I liked and used our Hostess Exclusive Bible Verses stamp set for the sentiment. (Did you know that you can ♥get this FREE♥ in February?)
I hope you have been ♥inspired by this project♥ and that that you join this Color My Heart Dare challenge. You don’t have to have a blog to join. You simply create a project using the colors shown and link to your blog or post to an online gallery (Facebook, Pinterest, SplitCoast Stampers, Instagram). How easy is that?!
♥ I can’t wait to see what you create!
