Colour Challenge with H2H

This week at Heart 2 Heart Challenges it's a colour challenge - blossom, lemon and emerald.  These were three of the new colours introduced in the 2017 Annual Inspirations.

I decided to create a garden using the flower  & leaf stamps from the May Stamp of the Month - Live, Love, Laugh.

The flowers and leaves were coloured in using the blending pen and blossom, lemon and emerald ink pads.

I used the Artbooking cricut cartridge to cut the fence from cocoa and the grass from emerald cardstock.  

To finish up, I added large and bitty sparkles to the centre of the flower  and a touch of shimmer pen.

The card is backed on the barnboard patterned paper found in the No Worries paper collection, and then onto cocoa cardstock.

I hope you'll play along with us at Heart 2 Heart Challenges and link up your project here.

Enjoy,

Jennifer

Camping Life with AHSC

Happy Monday!!!  It's sketchy time with Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.



Michelle has given a very clean and simple sketch for this week.

If you've played along, you know that clean and simple doesn't always mean easy!!

What will you come up with?




I decided to flip the sketch 180 degrees and used the cloud cuts from Flower Market cricut cartridge for the shape.

The patterned paper is from the new paper collection, Jack which is one of my new favourites!!!  It has great patterns of lumberjack plaid, axes, trees, lumberjacks, and more.

The sentiment is from a great new stamp set, Camping LIfe.  This set has a cute VW camper, mountains, tents, smores, and compass to name a few.

I stamped first in cocoa and then again in fern, cutting out the trees and popping up with foam tape.


I hope you'll play along with the sketch and link up your project here.

Enjoy,

Jennifer

Everyday Life with H2H

It's Everyday Life time with Heart 2 Heart Challenges this week.  It's up to you how to interpret this challenge.

Close to My Heart has a fantastic line of #Life cards and overlays and I decided to use one of these little cards in my project.


This simple little 2x2 card from #Life Cards - Enjoy was the jumping off point for my card.   I love the clean and simple black & white words with a single pop of red.  I popped the card off a double mat of white daisy and black with foam tape to give it more dimension.  One single layer of cranberry cardstock, with white daisy and black continued with the theme of the #Life card.  Keeping the colour theme I used white twine and black dots to finish off the card.

This card is off to my nephew - perfect graduation card!!

May flowers with AHSC

Happy Monday!!!  Wow we have been having a lot of rain this past week - I'm starting to see animals walk by two by two.....

The sketch this week from Michelle at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge is so pretty.



The sketch looked very delicate to me which is what I tried to follow with my card design.








I have been working with the You & Me Complements and thought the gold shimmer wreath worked perfectly in the design.

Once I decided on the wreath I pulled the gold stripe paper from the Rustic Fundamentals and backed with my favourite seaglass cardstock.

To continue to tie in the gold I used the white & gold ribbon and added a couple of gold shimmer dots for embellishments.

The pink flowers added a bit of colour and are from my stash!!

I hope you'll play along with the sketch this week.  Simply follow the link and add your project.

Enjoy,

Teeny tiny with H2H

We are going teeny tiny this week at Heart 2 Heart Challenges this week.  Isn't this a fabulous challenge?
For my project I decided to use the love script paper from Whimsy Fundamentals collection.  This collection offers so many options for all your papercrafting fun. I backed the patterned paper with juniper cardstock. The four teeny tiny squares are stamped in whisper ink using the retired stamp set "Little One".  Again the squares are backed with juniper cardstock.   To finish off my card I added four bitty sparkles for a bit of bling. 

Join us with your teeny tiny inspired project simply by following the link

Enjoy

Sketchy with Atlantic Hearts

Wow!!!  I have had a whirlwind few weeks.  I'm excited to introduce you all to the most wonderful new little guy in my life.
 
Gaius George Robert arrived April 15th, and has me wrapped around his little finger already.  I  can't wait to spoil him.  Stay tuned for lots of baby layouts!!!!

Thanks to a weekend away at a scrapbooking retreat I was able to get some crafty time in and get my project finished for Atlantic Heart Sketch Challenge #209.
When you have limited time, and creativity block, the card pieces from the picture my life pages are perfect to get you going.  For this card I turned to the Dreamin' Big paper collection.  The background piece is trimmed to 4 x 5 1/4 (from 4 x 6) and the sentiment is trimmed down from a 3 x 4 piece, fitting in to the sketch.  The little lady bug and flower from the complements are popped up with foam tape with black dots added to finish off the card.

What a Wonderful World

What a wonderful world is the theme at Heart 2 Heart Challenges this week.  I decided to use Some Kinda' Wonderful collection for my project.

This card just makes me smile.  A fellow consultant put cute faces on her paper and I thought it was wonderful.

I pulled one of the picture my life panels from the page, to layer onto the people paper.

The black shimmer hello, hash tag and triangles are from the complements and fit perfectly with the paper.


I hope you'll join us at H2H this week by clicking on the link and adding your project.

Enjoy,
