Color My Heart Color Dare Week 274

I am so excited to once again be a part of the Color My Heart Dare Design Team. This is my first week and our colors are Glacier, Charcoal, and Bashful.

My project for this Color Dare is an Impossible Box. I saw a video and, as you will soon learn about me, had to create a Design Space file so I can cut out many, many, many more.

The box is cut in Charcoal with silver foil paper matted Chelsea Gardens Glacier striped pattern paper. A Bashful glitter paper scallop circle is the base for a silver foil matted White Daisy sentiment piece. 'just for YOu' comes from the Chelsea Gardens cardmaking stamp set and Thin Cut bundle as does the butterflies.

The box is finished by coloring the butterflies with the NEW Bashful shimmer pen.

Enjoy and remember you have two weeks to play along, click HERE


  1. Shirley I had trouble with your link, but found your post and changed it in the blog. Beautiful the butterflies against the glacier design paper. I looked up the tutorial to see why it was called impossible it and will use as a future project...believe it was paper pixie tutorial?

  2. Love your box, Shirley! The silver foil paper is a nice added accent! I love how the bashful shimmer butterflies turned out!

  3. Welcome back, Shirley! What a great start showing off this beautiful box! Love how you used the stripe paper with the butterflies as accent.

  4. I'm curious why this is called an "impossible box"... I love the scattered butterflies. Gorgeous little box for storing some nice, little surprise for someone special.

    1. Alyson, it is all one piece and when you pull up the lid, it opens on the top.

  5. Fabulous project, Shirley! Now I'll have to go research how to make one of these boxes. It's so good to have you back on the Color Dare Design Team!

There are FOUR great Stamps of the Month and we start with Sweet Treats. A great stamp for Halloween, Christmas, winter, and friendship.

Here are to cards I created using Sweet Treats!

I created a Halloween shaker card using our new Shaker thin cuts and Shaker Window Foam & Acetate (Z4310). I used one of the circle thin cuts to cut a small circle in the card base and used the larger circle and frame to create a see through shaker. I cut little bats on the Cricut and added the Shaker Sequins.
And don't forget to do the inside and envelope
Next I cut a large circle with the Shaker Thin Cut and added a Cricut cut leaf frame. The Warm Winter Wishes image was stamped on the inside and a piece of Ruby polka dot ribbon from my stash was added to the front.
