Heart 2 Heart ~ Sparkle

Welcome to another weekly challenge with Heart 2 Heart!

This weeks challenge is SPARKLE ~ this could be glitter, shimmer, sequins or anyway you interoperate this challenge. I went with the obvious with gold, copper embossing and shimmer.

With this card I used the new Stitched Circles Embossing folder on Sangria cardstock. I pulled a bit of burlap from my stash. I used the Layered Leaves Thin Cuts to cut the two maple leaves. I also used the Autumn Blessings stamp set for the pumpkin and sentiment.

For the sparkle I used the new Embossing Ink Pens to coat the detailed maple leaves before embossing them in Gold and Copper Embossing Powders. I added a few loose Gold sequins and then used my Gold Shimmer brush to splatter gold all over.

Now it is your time to give it a try and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. You have until October 31st to participate in this challenge. We love to see your inspirations!!

Heart 2 Heart ~ Fall

Welcome to another weekly challenge with Heart 2 Heart!

Fall is my favorite time of the year as the colors begin to change and living here is Colorado we get to see it. I grew up in Louisiana and there really is no fall colors like you have here. It also mean the temperatures are cooler. Need I go on….

So I have seen a few people designing cards and using burlap, so I decided it was my time. I used the Layered Leaves Thin Cuts to cut the maple leaf out of burlap. I used Goldrush, Sangria, Fern, and Paprika cardstock. I used Autumn Blessing Stamp Set and Thin Cuts. I watercolored the pumpkins using our watercolor pencils.

I knew I needed to add a bit of shimmer or bling so I added a bit of Gold Glitter paper and then splattered the card with my Gold Shimmer Brush.

Now it is your time to give it a try and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. You have until October 31st to participate in this challenge. We love to see your inspirations!!

I have also entered this card in the Simon Says Monday Challenge which is also Fall/Autumn.

I love fall!!! It is my FAVORITE time of year. I have been having a lot of fun playing with this stamp set.

So I love the Build a Plaid Stamp Set so I decided to make a couple of fall feeling plaids. I used Fern, Saffron, and Paprika inks to create the two plaids.

For this card, I created the plaid then using the Layered Leaves Thin Cuts. I added the corrugated paper from Hawthorn and used French Vanilla, Fern, and Paprika cardstock. I used the Copper Tinsel Embossing powder with my VersaMark Ink to stamp the “is in the air”. I used the White Burlap Ribbon with a button from my stash!

With this card I used the Build a Plaid Stamp Set to create the background plaid. I then stamped the Fall and the acorns with Espresso Pigment Ink. I then used ton on ton for the leaves then fussy cut them.
