Heart 2 Heart ~ Color- Green

Welcome to another weekly challenge with Heart 2 Heart!

This weeks challenge is all about the color Green! Whether you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day or just love the color green we want you to join us. We are partnering with Double Trouble.

WELCOME to Double Trouble Challenge #51 partnership with Heart2Heart Challenges – Let the Troubles Begin 

THING 1:  Trouble Maker says, “Let’s celebrate St. Patty’s day and Put Your Green On.  What better color than to create a St. Patty’s Day project, or not.  However, make sure you have some green on your project…other colors can be used.    You can stop here…OR, you can choose to use Twisted Sister’s Twin Optional Twist below.

THING 4:  Twisted Sister’s Twin says, “My Irish friends often say ‘May rainbow be certain to follow each rain’ and sometimes the rainbow will lead to a pot of gold.  So, include something gold on your project (i.e. embellishment, gold metallic, ribbon, embossing, etc.) 
This is an OPTIONAL TWIST but you will be awarded an additional chance in Double Trouble’s random draw if you include this twist in your project.

THING 2:  Double Daresays, “You can link your project to Heart2Heart “The Wearin’ of the Green” HERE whether you use Twisted Sister’s Twin optional twist or not, and you will receive an additional chance at the Double Trouble Random Draw.  
Heart2Heart encourages the use of at least one Close To My Heart product; This requirement has been waived for our partnering.  However, if you do use any CTMH products you will be eligible for another chance at Double Trouble’s random draw.  

I decided I wanted to use the stamp set that was just featured with Close to My Heart’s Stampstacular sale. The stamp set is called Luck O’ the Irish. Unfortunately it is no longer available.

I used Julep and Clover for my greens. I stamped the larger clover in Julep pigment ink and then used clear embossing powder. I used the Julep Shimmer Brush to highlight the words “Friend” and “Lucky”. I added a bit of gold with Gold Embellishing Thread and Gold Gems.

Now it is your time to create something and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. You have until March 31st to participate in this challenge. We love to see your inspirations!!

Happy Crafting!

    Perfect St. Pat’s card, Cat! I like that those two important words are emphasized with ink. The gold cord is the perfect touch. Thank you for playing along with us at Double Trouble #51.

  2. Beautiful card and love how you used your gold embellishing thread wrapped around the great sentiment…thanks for sharing your DT card with us at Double Trouble and the supporting of our partnership with Heart2Heart.
