Heart 2 Heart ~ Minty Fresh

Welcome to another weekly challenge with Heart 2 Heart!

This is a fun and simple challenge, simply use the color Mint in your project!! Here is mine…

Have you seen the adorable Little Aussies stamp set?  This was one of stamps I could not wait to play with.  I paired this stamp with The World is Yours papers.  I used my Copic markers to color this cute critter who I believe is an Echidna.  I also used my Mint Shimmer pen to go over all the Mink stamped images. Here is another photo of the card.

Unfortunately the shimmer brush does not show up well in the photos.

Heart 2 Heart ~ Happy Times

Welcome to another weekly challenge with Heart 2 Heart!

This week our challenge is HAPPY TIMES! For me happy times are crafting and in particular scrapbooking even though I am over 4 years behind.  Another happy time for me is getting to spend time with my son.  So today I have a layout that I crated for one of our days spent together from four years ago.  It is sort of interesting that my last design team entry was also a layout that I created of this same location.  This layout is from our first trip to the Sunflower Farm.

For this layout I used the Make It From Your Heart Volume 3 ~ Pattern 25.  I made it a 8 photo page by using (2) 3 x 4 photos instead of a third 4 x 6 photo.  I used the I Heart Us paper pack to create my layout. I used the Mint cardstock as my base.

I used my Cricut to cut the sunflower and the the title.  I used Velum to stamp the I so totally love you which is from this April’s Stamp of the Month ~ Love So Sweet. I used white embossing powder and my versamark stamp pad. I also stamped a few of the butterflies for the Love So Sweet stamp set using Bluebird, Canary and Lagoon inks. I also used the Stitched Heart Thin Cuts.

I decided to add one of the Paper Pals to my layout.  I did shorten his legs so he looked more like a child.  I wanted to mirror the striped shirt my son was wearing so I actually used the shirt from the Paper Pal Gal stamp set but the shorts and shoes are from the Paper Pal Boy stamp set. I could not resist adding the cute dump truck with is from the Crusin’ to Adventure stamp set. I also used some of the stickers from I Heart Us Complements.

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

Highlight the Details – CTMH Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!

This month we are Highlighting the Details.  This could be focusing on a part of a stamped image, using a variety of different mediums such as water color, markers, ink, etc.  There are around 12 of us focusing on Highlighting the Details.  This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork. If you are coming from MELISSA ROBINSON’S Blog, you are on the right track!

I decided to pull out one of my favorite stamps from this Idea Book, Know that I Care.

I used the Feels Like Home paper pack, Espresso Pigment Ink Pad, Stitched Square Thin Cuts and the Quilted Thin Cuts. I started by stamping the flowers from the Know that I Care stamp set using the Espresso Pigment Ink Pad.

I then used the small stitched square from the Quilted Thin Cuts.  I cut out four squares so that they lined up (I did mess up a bit when lining up the flowers on one of the squares). I then chose to color one flower using Sage and Sugarplum.  I did add a bit of the Sugarplum Shimmer Brush to all the areas I colored Sugarplum.

Thanks for stopping by!  Please continue onto DARLYS RECKER’S BLOG where you will find some additional artwork Highlighting the Details!  Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought and happy hopping!

Colour Challenges are fun as they give you the start of your inspiration. I decided to try a fun fold card. I stumbled on a Joy Fold card and decided to give it a try.

Here you can see how the card opens.

I used the April Stamp of the Month which features the butterflies, sentiments and floral details. I used the Circle Stitched Thin Cuts and the floral border if from the Decorative Border Thin Cuts.
