Heart 2 Heart ~ Oh Deer

Welcome to our first challenge of November at Heart 2 Heart!

For this challenge I decided to focus on the word deer and use a deer in my artwork. You are welcome to play along with us and interpret this challenge the way you wish. To play a long simply link your artwork to our challenge which can be found HERE. Please remember this when you are designing you project.

I decided to make a couple of Christmas tags using the Holly & Ivy Digital Art Collection from Close to My Heart. Did you know you can purchase these SVG files and use them on any of your cutting devices? Here are the images in that collection.

Here is a closer look at each of the tags.

For this tag I used the Holly and Ivy Papers for the tag base. I used Candy Apple, Evergreen and Kraft cardstock. The Merry Christmas is from the For All Occasions stamp set. I did add one of the Candy Apple Gems to the center of the flower. The ribbon is from my stash.

This tag was done exactly the same but this time I used Scarlet Glitter paper to cut the flower.

I used a different patten paper from the Holly and Ivy Papers for the tag base. I then cut four of the deer shape to give more dimension to the deer. I used Candy Apple Pigment ink ad then heat embossed with Clear Embossing powder. I have to admit that did not work as well as I hoped. The sentiment comes for the Craft with Heart Card Subscription.

Now it is your time to create something and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge.

Heart 2 Heart ~ Sweet Treats

Welcome to another Heart 2 Heart Challenge!

Our second challenge for the month is sweet treats. This can be interpreted the way you see fit, some of the things that come to mind for me is candy, cookies, and Halloween. So I decided to go the way of Halloween since you go trick or treating and get candy.

Please remember this when you are designing you project.

Here is the card I designed.

I created my background with Seedless Preserves and Chipped Sapphire Oxide Inks. I then uses Clear, Black, Grape, and Sapphire Shimmer brushes to splatter the background. I cut the oxide inked background with the Stitched Rectangle Thin cuts. I then matted it on Black Ore paper. I used the Halloween Buddies – Joey stamp and thin cuts. I stamped the sentiment with White Pigment ink and then used White Embossing Powder on it. I used my Tri-Blend markers to color and added a bit of Silver Stickles for the buttons.

I have also submitted this card with Double Trouble Challenge #95 ~ Thing 1 says to make a cute Halloween card and I think this fits!

I have not had a chance to print the photos but now it will be so easy just to pop them into this completed layout.

I used Sundance and Sapphire Shimmer Brushes to add splatters to the base page. I incorporated the Wander Die Cuts and stickers to decorate the page. I used my Cricut to cut the title. I used the Wander Cardmaking stamp and thin cut to cut the mountains.

I also used the Wander Scrapbooking stamp set and thin cuts. I then pulled a couple wooden arrows and colored them with my Black Shimmer Brush.
