Heart 2 Heart ~ Color- Green

Welcome to another weekly challenge with Heart 2 Heart!

This weeks challenge is all about the color Green! Whether you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day or just love the color green we want you to join us. We are partnering with Double Trouble.

WELCOME to Double Trouble Challenge #51 partnership with Heart2Heart Challenges – Let the Troubles Begin 

THING 1:  Trouble Maker says, “Let’s celebrate St. Patty’s day and Put Your Green On.  What better color than to create a St. Patty’s Day project, or not.  However, make sure you have some green on your project…other colors can be used.    You can stop here…OR, you can choose to use Twisted Sister’s Twin Optional Twist below.

THING 4:  Twisted Sister’s Twin says, “My Irish friends often say ‘May rainbow be certain to follow each rain’ and sometimes the rainbow will lead to a pot of gold.  So, include something gold on your project (i.e. embellishment, gold metallic, ribbon, embossing, etc.) 
This is an OPTIONAL TWIST but you will be awarded an additional chance in Double Trouble’s random draw if you include this twist in your project.

THING 2:  Double Daresays, “You can link your project to Heart2Heart “The Wearin’ of the Green” HERE whether you use Twisted Sister’s Twin optional twist or not, and you will receive an additional chance at the Double Trouble Random Draw.  
Heart2Heart encourages the use of at least one Close To My Heart product; This requirement has been waived for our partnering.  However, if you do use any CTMH products you will be eligible for another chance at Double Trouble’s random draw.  

I decided I wanted to use the stamp set that was just featured with Close to My Heart’s Stampstacular sale. The stamp set is called Luck O’ the Irish. Unfortunately it is no longer available.

I used Julep and Clover for my greens. I stamped the larger clover in Julep pigment ink and then used clear embossing powder. I used the Julep Shimmer Brush to highlight the words “Friend” and “Lucky”. I added a bit of gold with Gold Embellishing Thread and Gold Gems.

Now it is your time to create something and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. You have until March 31st to participate in this challenge. We love to see your inspirations!!

Happy Crafting!

Technique Blog Hop ~ Embossing Folders

Hello and welcome to our CTMH Featured Products Blog Hop. This week our featured product is Embossing Folders.

If you have just joined us you can start here and continue on, as this is a circular hop. If you came here from MELISSA ROBINSON’s Blog then you are in the right place. Now on to my project:

Embossed Heart Clover Card ~ Fundamentals ~ St. Patrick's Day Card ~ CatScrapbooking.comI cut the hearts from Artistry – Heart Medallions #m651703 and using hid contour lines feature so I only cut the heart.  I cut 8 hearts, four were left unembossed and placed beneath the embossed and scored heart.  I ran the remaining 4 hearts through 4 different embossing folders to create a unique clover.

Here is the full list of products used:
