Heart 2 Heart ~ Old and New

Welcome to another Heart 2 Heart Challenge!

For our second challenge of April we hav something old and something new. Earth Day in around the corner so we are celebrating it by using something old and pairing it with something new. We would love for you to participate in our challenge. Just remember to use at least one Close to My Heart product!

I went with the Kitchen Gnomes which is a stamp and thin cut collection in our March/April Idea book. I actually colored all these gnomes back in March but they have ben sitting on my table waiting to be put to use. I paired them with some papers that are current but most are from previous Idea Books.

For the guys gnomes I used the Candy Apple patterned paper from the current Seasonal Mix-in Collection. The Sapphire pattern is from the July/August 2020 Seasonal Mix-in Collection which is in the online only section. The Evergreen pattern paper is from our January/February 2020 seasonal mix-ins. For all of these cards I used the Birthday Borders stamp set and thin cuts. I also used the Black & White dots. I used White Pigment ink and White embossing Powder on the sentiments. The blue embossed sentiment is something pretty old…. I used the Outdoor Denim embossing powder, which was around when I started with CTMH almost 10 years ago.

For the girl gnomes, the card design is based off one by designed by Laura’s Creative Pages, which I saw on Instagram. I added the whisk stamp and thin cut from the Eat Play Love Cardmaking set. For these cards I used the Lagoon pattern paper from the Seasonal Mix-in collection. The Peach pattern paper is from our January/February 2020 seasonal mix-ins. The Purple patten paper is form the In This Together Special which just ended in March. I added one of the White Flower Sequins to the chef hats.
