Heart2Heart Challenge #4

Heart 2 Heart Challenge #4: This week, we are focusing on ribbon (my favorite embellishment!) The challenge is to add at least 2 different ribbons on your artwork.

I also love ribbon and brads. Here is the card I made using two different ribbons from the Hollyhock ribbon round. I used two stamp sets: April Stamp of the Month - Flower Pot and the sentiment is from Extreme Happiness. The flowers and the words "Happy Birthday" are stamped with CTMH Hollyhock ink.

Enjoy the rest of your week. Thanks for stopping by.

Heart2HeartChallenge -- Let's Get Sketchy

April 19, 2010 -- Let's get Sketchy
It's time for a new challenge and we've got a sketch to share this week. Remember that a sketch is just a jumping off point - feel free to interpret it any way you see fit as long as we can recognize that you used the sketch for the basis of your project. Also, a quick reminder to all - Close To My Heart products must be used in our challenges. It does not have to be 100% CTMH, but the majority must be. Ok, now onto the reason you're here! Our challenge for the week is based on the following sketch:
For this challenge, I decided to turn the sketch and here is the card I made. I used two CTMH stamp sets: Intrinsic Backgrounds (CTMH Petal Ink) and So Sweet (CTMH Black ink). I then used a sheer ribbon (not CTMH) and placed a paper flower from Just Blooms in the middle of the inked background (I may sponge the flower - I've never done that so I'm not sure - what do you think) and placed a filigree charm in the middle of the flower.
Thanks for stopping.

Heart 2 Heart Challenge

CTMH -- Heart2Heart Challenge ---- Week of April 12, 2010
This is a 1/2/3 challenge. Here are the requirements:*Use 1 stamped image (not 1 set, but 1 image)*Use 2 different patterned papers*Use 3 embellishments - these can be 3 of the same thing or 3 different things.
I made 4-5 cards before I settled on a card for this challenge. Here is the card I selected using the 1/2/3 requirements:

The stamped image is the sentiment "Thinking of You" using the CTMH Fringed Phrases set.

I really like the Veranda paper in the CTMH Spring Idea Book -- I have the Creative Basics Veranda collection and used the two patterned papers.

The three CTMH embellishments are the Spring Blossom paper flowers with a Pewter Designer Brad in the middle.

Thanks for stopping by to see the card I created.

Heart 2 Heart Challenge

Here are the colors we are working with this week:

Most of the items that I used are from CTMH. I am not a CTMH consultant so I will play along with I have the correct product or color. I love the CTMH colors, papers and stamp sets.

Here is the card that I made for this challenge. The card base is from my stash, I stamped one of the flowers from the Acrylix Stamp Set "Enjoy Every Moment" using Sunflower ink, I used chocolate cardstock and a Sweet Leaf ribbon.

Thanks for looking at the card I made for this challenge. Enjoy your weekend.
