Paw Prints on Your Heart - H2H Aug Week 4

My DT card for Heart2Heart "Sweetness Overload" using the sketch from Try Stampin on Tuesday and the adorable stamp set from Little Acres.  


Don't usually use kraft too much, however, my daughter had used it in one of her cards wherein she had stamped several images, heat embossed in white and then colored...so that's where I started with my design for the background.  

One of my favorite colors is CTMH sweet leaf (green) so went through my design papers, and this design sheet was perfect and went so well against the kraft and die cut a panel with a scalloped edge for the center panel.  Stamped the pair of kitties and then began my coloring on the kraft paper using copic sketch pens in a variety of colors and matching up with the green.  Focal panel and kitties were popped up with 3D thin foam tape.  Done...and I think I just became a lover of kraft cardstock. 





Hop on by the several challenges and this week's Heart2Heart theme to see inspirations from Design Teams. Heart2Heart invites you to showcase your favorite project...you have until the end of the month to create and submit.

Happy Birthday - Double Dare #8

This is my DT card for Double Trouble Challenge #8 "Summer Birthday" celebrations with a lot of glitter for our Twisted Sister. For the next two weeks we are partnering with Pause Dream Enjoy Challenge.  This is a fold card sketch that one of our Crop friend's shared with our group and thought it would be a challenge to make this card using the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #278...and I think it worked.  

  


We lost track of time and Twisted Sister let it be known that we forgot her birthday. Well, in our defense we didn't forget...we just wanted to surprise her with a mile-high cake and many glitter cards with the help of our followers from Double Trouble. Please help us get back in good graces with her because our birthdays are coming up in December.  

And if you want to get on the good side with Twisted Sister add some glitter to your project...she will give you an extra chance for our random draw prize.  And wish her a Happy Birthday in the comments and another chance.  And share with Pause Dream Enjoy and yet another chance.

Challenge #7 - The Dog Days of Summer

This card is for our Double Trouble Challenge #7 - using the Twisted Sister's optional twist to include on your project food or beverage for a summer day and pairing up with HeARTful Stamping Challenge "Dog Days of Summer".  

The Ice Cream truck was stamped, fussy-cut and pieced with some of the other design papers, layered and adhered with 3D thin foam tape.  Doggie was colored and adhered with 3D thin foam tape.  The sentiment was stamped on black, heat embossed with white powder, framed with red and scattered and adhered to background paper.   



 

Please hop by at Double Trouble and HeARTful Stamping to see the inspiration from the DT members and  join in creating something, anything and everything for a summer project.

The inside of the card was decorated with design paper from the same packet and a couple of frames for the sentiment.

You Lift Me Up - H2H - Aug Week 2

This week Heart2Heart is challenging you to show us your layers...whether that be layered paper, stamps, embellishments...the FUN thing about challenges is that YOU get to call the shots so show us what you got!

Using some of the zip strips and design papers, cut in 1/2" and 1" strips were adhered on Gypsy cardstock and then adhered to the white card base.  This must have been one of my favorite paper packs at the time because I only have scraps left over...but still enough to do a similar card.  The adorable bunny was another of my copic class images which was colored, fussy-cut and adhered with thin foam sheet to a frame of gypsy.  The second cloud on image was fussy-cut and adhered with thin foam tape.  

The sentiment was hand-printed on one of the tags from the Kaleidoscope Complements.  



Just added a border of one of the design papers to the inside of the card. 


Hop on by for this week's Heart2Heart theme to see inspirations from the Design Team. We invite you to showcase your favorite project...you have until the end of the month to create and submit.

Party - Color Dare #304

This is my DT card for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #304 using My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge #396.  First went to my stash to see what MFT dies I had for this sketch...perfect balloons and sentiment.  Followed pretty much the cuts of the sketch, but instead of the banner I chose to use the sentiment "Party".  The balloons were cut using design papers, distressed the edges to give it dimension, added the nail tape to the back of the balloon and wrapped it around the tag, rounded the balloons and adhered with 3D foam tape.

New Guidelines on Neutrals: White, Cream, Black, Gray, Kraft and Brown(s) are free to use; however if they are included in the challenge graphic they MUST be used in your creation.  No additional colors except those on the color palette.

If I Had a Flower - Double Trouble Challenge #6

This is my DT card for Double Trouble Challenge #6 "Some Thing, Any Thing and Every Thing" and using the Little Acres Stamp Set "Lots of Poppies", which was a random draw prize from Little Acres Challenge back three months ago.  Each month for six months I get Happy Mail (current stamp set for that month) from Little Acres, and I still have three more months...the stamp is always a pleasant surprise.  

Double Dare's Challenge #6 is for one week only, our 5th Monday in any given month is an "Anything Goes".  Please join us at Double Trouble to see the other DT member inspirations.  And Pair and Share with our previous partnering with Color Dare, Heart2Heart, Three Amigos and Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and win additional chances for our random draw prize.  






Decided to make this card with very few layers because I didn't want to fussy-cut all the stems...so I stamped the field of poppies on the bottom edge of my white cardstock and colored them with a variety of Copic pens.  

Wasn't happy with them just being on the white cardstock and guess what, I fussy-cut another stamped item and used it to mask over the flowers.  Selecting a couple foliage stamps proceeded stamping lots of foliage in Pear, Sweet Leaf and Fern...very please with it.  On top sponged some blue and mink inks, stamped and colored the large poppy, stamped the sentiment in green leaf and added Momento London Fog because it was too light (closest to Mink).  


Popped up the large poppy and then stamped the same poppy field on the side border of the inside in Momento London Fog

Love Ya - Color Dare #303

This is my DT card for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #303 using one of the images colored in my Copic Class.  I did change a couple of the colors for better matching with the Color Dare TicTacToe graphic.  Have a pretty good stack of images that have been colored in class and they usually don't fit in with the color challenges, but this time it worked out for me  and I was more than satisfied with the result.  What do you think?

New Guidelines on Neutrals: White, Cream, Black, Gray, Kraft and Brown(s) are free to use; however if they are included in the challenge graphic they MUST be used in your creation.
