Technique Time with Heart 2 Heart

Welcome to another Heart 2 Heart Challenge!

This challenge is to give Stamped Backgrounds a try. Stamped Backgrounds are a great way to put your own spin on your design by creating your own pattern paper. Here is my card and then I will walk you through my steps to get here.

I love the dinosaurs which go with the Something Fierce Paper Pack. I love the pattern paper with the dinosaurs that come with the paper pack but I wanted to create my own with the cute dinosaur that comes with the Something Fierce Cardmaking Stamp Set. I used the Largest Circle Thin Cut and largest Stitched Circle Thin Cut. I also added the scallop border from Decorative Border Thin Cuts.

I started with the largest image, the dinosaurs and then stamped in a triangle shape with each color. I used Carolina, Bluebird, Lemon, and Willow.  I then used Pewter ink and stamped the confetti in the blank spots.

I also added a bit of random stamping to the stamping to the stitched circle.

I wanted to add a little extra to make the green dinosaur pop, so I added liquid glass and then fussy cut it.

Now it is your time to give it a try and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. You have until January 31st to participate in this challenge or any of our January Challenges.

Happy Crafting!

Heart 2 Heart ~ Important Things

I hope your 2019 is of to a great start!! The new year always brings new beginnings and this year is no exception. This year I have taken on a new venture… becoming a member of the Design Team for Heart 2 Heart!  I am so excited to participate as part of this Design Team!

To kick of the new year at Heart 2 Heart we are are featuring the IMPORTANT THING(S) for our design challenge.  Focus on what is Important to you and share your artwork with us. 

For me (and probable many others people) Family one of the Important Things.  I wanted to highlight my family by using the awesome National Papercrafting Frame from Close To My Heart.  I had this photo from a couple years ago of my son, husband and I, which would be perfect for my Magnolia Frame.

I used the “N” Chipboard letter to highlight our last name.  I then covered it with one of the Seasonal Mix in Papers, which unfortunately this particular paper just retired.  I then cut our last name using my Cricut with the Babette font on Charcoal Cardstock.

Come and join us at Heart 2 Heart and show us your IMPORTANT THINGS projects. You have until the end of January to link up with this challenge. 

Happy Crafting!
