Heart 2 Heart ~ Bluebird

Welcome to another weekly challenge with Heart 2 Heart!

This weeks challenge is Bluebird. Bluebird is one of the Close to My Heart Colors which is one of my favorites. So for me I decided to focus on that color; however you could also consider using a bluebird in your design. We are excited to see what you may come up with for this challenge. Just remember you must use at least one Close to My Heart product in your submission.

I recently stumbled on this cute stamp set by Picket Fence Studio. I had fun playing with it for this weeks Color Dare Challenge that used two of the other blues in the Close to My Heart pallet ~ Sapphire and Carolina. So I knew I wanted to use it again for the Bluebird Challenge.

For this card I used a fish stencil with Opaque Texture paste which I added a couple of drops of Bluebird re-inker to. I used the Stitched Circle Thin cuts and sponged Bluebird onto it. I used Bluebird ink to watercolor my narwhal. I then pulled a few of the bluebird colored sequins from the Loose Crafty Sequins.

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

Heart 2 Heart ~ Try Something New

Happy New Year!!! Welcome to another weekly challenge with Heart 2 Heart!

Try something new can be interpreted in many ways. It could be a new technique or a new fancy fold card or even using new products or even new equipment.

For me, my try something new is teaching cardmaking at an elementary school. I have been hosting kids workshops for about 4 months to about 8 kids but today I will be teaching 6 classes at my son’s elementary school. His school is hosting a Pursue Passion Day where the kids sign up for different classes. I will be teaching a class to each grade from kindergarten to 5th grade. Wish me luck!!!

Here is a photo of some of the cards I created for this event. Each child will get to make 2 cards. some are interactive cards like pop ups or movement. Others help them learn techniques. I used a lot of cardstock, some retired cardstock and some retired patten papers.

I am excited to share my passion with our next generation in hopes that it may excite them! Wish me luck as I know it will be a loooong day!

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

Happy Crafting!
