Circle Power with AHSC

This is such a fun sketch from Michelle at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge this week.


Is it rain drops, pool balls, circles???  The possibilities are endless.

What will you create??







I've used the Some Kinda Wonderful paper collection for my card.

The cute complements in bright colours pop from the black and white background paper.  The sentiment is from a retired stamp set & is a "go to" for baby cards!!

I'm also in love with the black & white enamel dots from this collection.  (hoping they come out in additional colours!!)

Technique Fun with H2H

It's time for another challenge at Heart 2 Heart Sketch Challenge this week.

For this week, the challenge is "Technique Time" - no patterned paper.  I hope you'll play along with us.

I used the retired arrow embossing folder on seaglass cardstock and then sanded to show the white core of the cardstock.

The sentiment is heat embossed in silver with the embossed cardstock layered overtop with foam tape to provide some additional dimension.

To finish off I added some silver glitter tape, and a few clear sparkles.


Now it's your turn to add your project simply by following this link.  You have all month to play.

Enjoy,

Frame it Up with AHSC

Happy Monday - we're almost half way through March - surely Spring is around the corner.




Today's sketch from Michelle for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge has a wonderful large focal point to centre your project.

My first thought was a mirror, then a frame... hmmmm






Ultimately, I pulled out the Flower Market cricut cartridge and used the great background wreath as my focal point.  I'm in love with this cartridge - it has so many great images.

The paper flowers and leaves are from my stash that I layered up and popped with the new gold glitter gems.

I masked the image from the May stamp of the month, eliminating the tea cup and using only the sentiment for my card.

A tiny bow with the fern thick twine finishes off the card.




I hope you'll join us this week at Atlantic Hearts Sketch challenge by following the link.

Time to Dream

Happy Monday!!  It's time to dream with Heart to Heart Challenges this week.


I had a lot of projects come to mind, but ultimately decided to use the Dreamin' Big paper collection and my favourite picture my life cards.  Using the 4x6 or 3x4 pieces provide a great jumping off point for all your projects.  I inked the edges with slate ink and added whisper twine and retired white starts to finish the card off.

Join us with your project by following this link http://heart2heartchallenges.blogspot.ca.   You have all month to play along with this challenge.

Enjoy,

Hello Lovely

Michelle must be thinking Spring with her design for this weeks' challenge at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.

I decided to use the Hello Lovely paper collection for this week.  I love the polka dot patterned paper and combined with the gold polka dot paper from the gold overlay collection.

The complements have so many beautiful flowers it was difficult to choose which two to use.  I added a gold shimmer gem and painted the stems with the gold shimmer brush, and embossed the sentiment also in gold.    The gold shimmer trim provides a little bit more gold to this cute birthday card.


The new blush shimmer ribbon is so pretty, you're going to use it over and over again.

With Complements

This week at Heart2Heart Challenges the theme is "complements".  These little packages of goodness are offered with every paper collection, but are versatile enough to use with all your projects.


I pulled out the baby boy complements and paired with Whimsy fundamental paper and glacier cardstock.

"Bundle of" is a vellum piece that I backed with glacier cardstock and then popped up with foam tape.

The "joy" silver glitter paired great with the silver glitter heart.  Inside is stamped, Hello Sweet Baby in slate ink,



So pull out your complements and join us at Heart 2 Heart Challenges  this week.  Simply click on the link and add your project.

Enjoy,

Getting buggy with AHSC

I'm getting buggy this week for the sketch at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.  The actual name of the paper collection is Dreamin' Big, but I'm sure I'll refer to it as the bug paper collection.



This collection has such great patterns and colours.  I'm sure I'll use it over and over again.

The coordinating complements and embellishments are just as cute.



I've used the cute bug pattern and two of the picture my life cards, cut down to size.  The black chevron background is also one of the patterns included in this package.

I have been using the Artistry cricut collection on another project and came across this great banner cut.  The sentiment is stamped in black ink and is from a retired stamp set.


I also used the juniper coloured sequins from the collection, with bitty sparkles on the inside.  To finish it off, I used the clear shimmer brush on the flowers.

I hope you'll join us this week at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.  Simply click on the link to add your project.

Enjoy,
