Heart 2 Heart ~ Thankful

Welcome to another Heart 2 Heart Challenge!

I can’t believe we are in November!! This month we reflect on what we are thankful for, so this is a great challenge for this month. We hope you will play along and join us. Just remember if you play you must use at least one Close to My Heart product.

Every year around my mom asks me to make her cards or tags that she can use for her gifts to her clients. I designed these four as potentials. This one uses the new Serenity Cardmaking Stamp and Thin Cuts. I used Blue Belle cardstock and Blue Belle Sequins. I used Blue Belle, Sapphire and Sundance inks. I did cut a second layer of the wreath in Sapphire Cardstock.

Here is another version with the same Serenity Cardmaking Stamp and Thin Cuts. I used Blue Belle cardstock and Blue Belle Sequins. This time I used New England Ivy with Sundance. The bow I stamped with VersaMark ink and then heat embossed with Gold Embossing powder.

For this one I used the Flower stencil with Oxide Inks ~ Mowed Lawn, Candied Apple, and Mustard Seeed to create this card. I used the Stitched Scalloped Brackets Thin Cuts. I used a bit of Gold Stickle glue.

The last one I created my own background using Oxide inks. I then used the thin cut leaves from last year to cut the legs. I also used the wood grain embossing folder which has been retired. I used Cinnamon, Desert Rose, Sundance, and Black Ore papers.

She actually did not like any of these… So I am still working on a design.

Now it is your time to create something and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. You have until November 30th to participate in this challenge. Make sure you include at least one Close to My Heart product. We love to see your inspirations!!

Happy Crafting!

Color Dare #415 ~ Love of Color

Welcome to another week of Color Dare! This week we have a Love of Color board for you. The colors are Ballerina, Blue Belle, Sage, Evergreen, Toffee and Linen. You must choose at least 3 of the colors. You can add Black, White, Gold and Silver for free.

I chose to work with Ballerina, Blue Belle, Sage, and Toffee with Black, White, and Silver.

For this card I did do a bit of fussy cutting but I am happy with the outcome. The pattern paper if from the Seasonal Mix-in Paper Pack. I used the Stitched Florals Stamp and Thin Cuts. I also used Stitched Simple Bracket thin cuts for the sentiment. I added a couple of the Blue Belle gems and Glitter paper for the bow. I added a touch of Silver Glitter glue to the centers of the small flowers.

Now it is your turn to create! Just create a project (card, layout or other craft project) using this weeks colors.  Then link them to the Color My Heart Blog ~  Color Dare #415 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday, October 22, 2020 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.
