Color Fusers Blog Hop August 2018 – Follow Your Dreams Stamp Set

Color Fusers Blog Hop August 2018

Welcome to the Color Fusers Blog Hop for August!

I hope you’re enjoying the hop so far. I’m sure my fellow creators have some amazing projects to share today! The color scheme this month is so colorful and fun and ALL these colors are brand NEW to the Annual Catalog as of June 1st! I just love it and hope you do too. My project today features the Follow Your Dreams Bundle which includes the Follow Your Dreams Stamp Set and Chase Your Dreams Framelits.

I felt compelled to use this bundle because my brand new website just went live on 8/3 and creating this new website has truly been about following one of my big dreams. I hope you’ll participate in my Launch Party Scavenger Hunt and/or simply check out the pages of my site by clicking HERE.

It was very fun to play with die cutting a bunch of these dream catchers in different colors and pairing the colors to go in behind. I just love dream catchers!

A Few Project Details:

  • A 1-1/4″ circle punch was used for the pieces in behind each dream catcher.
  • A Fine Tip Glue Pen was used to attach the pieces.
  • The Pineapple Punch layer was attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Each of the assembled dream catchers were also attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • In the center of each dream catcher there is a Glitter Enamel Dot which I’ve custom colored to coordinate with each die cut pairing.

In this photo I’m sure you can also see that the dream catchers are popped up, for some added dimension. I think the feathers should look like they are floating in the air! Also, check out my pretty custom colored glitter enamel dots!

In the short video ahead, I’ve included a few tips, for ways to custom color the Glitter Enamel Dots to go with ANY project design!

I hope you’ve enjoyed my colorful, simple project today. It was super fun and easy to make. You can make it too and it doesn’t even use that many supplies. Three of the colors are included in the 2018 – 2020 In Colors, so if you don’t have these cardstock colors already, you can buy a variety pack of these In Colors and you’re halfway there with the cardstock you need. There’s a complete supply list ahead!

About Me Page

I am a seeker of that crazy, excited feeling that comes when you've created something that’s unique, beautiful and expresses who you are in some small way. It’s like making a new discovery, when you find a unique combination of color, layout, dimension and texture. I call it a creative spark and it makes me giddy! Through sharing and teaching I hope to help others find this amazing feeling of creative bliss!
