H2H Color Challenge

Hello everyone, this week over at Heart 2 Heart we have a color challenge.

Sage, Sapphire, and Sugarplum

I had a lot of fun making this card with our new Thin Cuts -Shaker Window & Confetti and Decorative Borders. I used the Loose Sequins to full up the shaker and I added some of the Heart Confetti. Have you tried the new thin cuts yet??? I am so in love with them and they add the finishing touch I am looking for to my cards. 

I colored the butterfly from the Grateful Heart Cardmaking stamp set with the Sugarplum Shimmer Brush and oh my goodness this photo does not do it justice it is so pretty and so sparkly. I finished the card off with a couple of  Sugarplum Glitter Gems.

Stop of on over at our H2H blog to check out what project the rest of the Design Team came up with!

Paper Truffles Team Blog Hop - All Things Christmas

Welcome to the Paper Trufflez Team Blog Hop. The participants in this hop will be highlighting new products from the 2018 Holiday Expressions catalog. If you have come from Lisa's blog, you are on the right path.

The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around. If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants here. It’s really simple to hop along with us. Simply click on the link at the end of each blog post to move to the next one.

I was really happy with how this simple card all came together. I used the Seasonal Trees -November SOTM a little differently here. I embossed the Merry Christmas sentiment from the Christmas Blessings Stamp Set using our Candy Apple Pigment Pad and some Embossing Powder. I then used a tree top from Seasonal Trees stamped around the sentiment. I added some berries to create this Christmas card that would be very easy to reproduce if you like to make multiples of the same design.

I finished it off with some Liquid Glass on the berries, added a couple of sequins and some Silver Embellishing Thread

Now “hop” on over to Cecilia’s blog to see her fabulous artwork. Be sure to visit all the Consultants in the hop to get some fun creative ideas. If you get lost along the way, here is a list of participants. Thanks for stopping by!

H2H - Spotlight On...

You guys, have you seen this November Stamp of the Month? I love it. I have been making cards left and right with it. When I found out that the challenge for this week the challenge at Heart 2 Heart was going to be Spotlight On...I decided I wanted to create a scene featuring a blue sky. I have always loved this technique but for some reason I really have only done if a couple of times so this was super fun to revisit it.

To create this look I stamped two trees onto White Daisy cardstock. I took the first tree and added some ground cover and then attached it to some Candy Apple cardstock. On the other piece I stamped the little bird and some little stars using VersaMark pad and then I put some embossing powder on top of that. I then used a sponge dauber to swirl around Sapphire ink creating a night sky. Next I used a Thin Cuts - Basic Circle to cut out part of the scene and matched it up to the first tree.
To finish the card off I mounted it on my favorite buffalo pattern paper from the Hello Pumpkin Paper Packet and added some Clear Sparkles.

I really wanted to add a little bit of the Silver Embellishing Thread around the bottom but I couldn't find it. I must not have ordered it so I ordered some and I will add that to the card once it comes to finish it off.

Please make sure you stop by the other H2H Design Team Blogs to see what they came up with using this fun technique.

SNS #164 The Game

Hello everyone, I hope you are having a wonderful fall! A few years ago we went down south to celebrate Thanksgiving with my husbands family. We had so much fun and a serious game of Rummy happened. My hubby always likes to circle the winners and the losers especially...ehem, when he is the winner and so this time I happened to take a photo of it.  

I used sketch #164 but I rotated it because I really wanted to feature the scores here.

I made a little journaling box and tucked a couple of Stitched Circle Thin Cuts. I also did a lot of fussy cutting on this beautiful Grateful Heart paper.

I also broke into my Gold Shimmer Trim...swoon.

Not sure if you can tell but I brushed the center of each of the flowers with a Gold Shimmer Brush.

Here is the sketch I used, make sure you stop over to the blog to see what  the Design Team came up with.
