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!

Heart 2 Heart ~ An Attitude of Gratitude

Welcome to another weekly challenge with Heart 2 Heart!

This months Stamp of the Month works perfectly for this challenge as it has a couple of sentiments like “Grateful” and “Blessings”. I chose to use this stamp set for my project; however, you can create anything that reflects an attitude of gratitude to you. Just remember you must use at least one Close to My Heart product on your design.

I chose to use the Seasonal Mix-In papers for the card. I stamped the flowers in Glacier and second generation Smoothie. The leaves were stamped with Clover. I then used my VersaMark ink to stamp the veins on the flowers and used White Embossing Powder. I cut the vine like leaves after stamping in Evergreen ink. I added a couple of the Holly Jolly Dots.

Now it is your time to give it a try and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. You have until November 30th to participate in this challenge. We love to see your inspirations!!

Happy Crafting!
