Heart 2 Heart ~For the Love of Color

Welcome to another Heart 2 Heart Challenge!

For this challenge if you have Close to My Hearts new how to book Love of Color you can use it for your inspiration. Please know it is not mandatory to participate in this challenge.

I decided to really push myself. I just commented on a friend of mine’s blog that I am not a yellow person and rarely use it.  So when I was working on my project I decided I would go for Lemon!  I then looked up Lemon in my Love of Color how-to-book.  In the book I saw Lemon, Glacier, Pewter and Pebble – perfect!! I then decided to use one of the cards in the New Seasonal Expression One Idea Book as my inspiration.  I pretty much lifted the card and made a couple changes.

I love the Dandelion Wishes Stamp Set!! I used Pewter and Pebble to stamp the dandelion and the fly away pieces. The Glacier pattern paper from the Seasonal Mix In papers. I used White, Lemon and Pewter cardstock.  I used White Embossing Powder for the sentiment. Final touches are the Bitty Sparkles and White Ribbon.

Now it is your time to give it a try and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. You have until February 3rd to participate in this challenge.

Happy Crafting!

I chose to use Eggplant, Sugarplum, Peacock, Glacier and Heather.

Here is a close up of the card.

The card design is pattern 5 from the Make it from Your Heart Volume 4 Idea Book. The background is from Boutique paper pack which was just retired. The Eggplant polka-dot is from Documented paper pack which is also retired. I used the You Have My Heart Stamp set.  I stamped the heart in sugarplum on white cardstock. I then come back with the sentiment and stamped in Eggplant. The XOXO was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed in white embossing powder. I cut the tag using one of the Thin Cut Fancy Tags.

Here is the inside of the card. I used the You Have A Heart for the inside of the card using Eggplant and Peacock ink.

Sew What?! – CTMH Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!  This month there are 13 of us highlighting Sewing techniques,  This can be using our dies that have stitching, stamp sets that have stitching, using pens to create stitching or using your sewing machine to create the stitched look.  This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork. If you are coming from KIMBERLY BOWERS BLOG, you are on the right track!

As irony would have it I planned to used my stitched dies to crate my card; however, I cannot for the live of me find my “C” plate to my Cuttlebug.  I went to Hobby Lobby, Michaels and even Walmart but no one carries it. UGH!!!!! So what do you do improvise… I started using different pieces of cardboard to see if I could create the right size shim. Thankfully I was able to find a good combination.  Now I am just waiting on Amazon to send my my new one.

I used the new Love of Color how to book.  I used the color combination Ruby, Pebble, Peacock, and Sugarplum.  I used the love from the Artbooking Cartridge. The “you” came from Colorful Texture Stamp set.  I used the Stitched Heart thin cuts and then used my black pen to create a stitched look.

Thanks for stopping by!  Please continue onto ANNEMARIE JULIAN’S BLOG where you will find some additional artwork highlighting the Masking!  Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought and happy hopping!

Happy Crafting!
