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!

Calypso and the Split Panel Card

One of my Rockin' heART team members, Darlene Smyly, taught us how to create a Split Panel card at a recent class. It was so much fun!!

Here is a 4 1/4" x 11" top folding White Daisy card. Fold the card from the top in half at 5 1/2", you can score first before you fold.

Place the fold line on the 2" mark on your trimmer and cut. This will leave you with the 2" x 4 1/4" panel for the top of the split panel.

Take the leftover piece, 3 1/2" x 4 1/4", and cut 2" from the 3 1/2" side.  This will leave you with a 2" x 4 1/4" for the  bottom panel.

The remaining 1 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece may be used for the sentiment piece which will attach the top and bottom panels, which is what I did. I stamped one of the flamingos from the Tickled Pink (C1651) stamp set

I cut a Black cardstock mat for it at 4 1/2" x 1 3/4".

To dress up the card, I cut panels from Calypso (X7210B) pattern paper, my rule of thumb is to cut t…
