The Heart 2 Heart Challenge theme this week is 4, four of anything. Since this theme is pretty wide open it makes it a lot of fun to see what everyone comes up with. This morning I thought I would try and learn a new technique. I got on YouTube and found something that looked interesting. Basically, you take a block and add different colored [Read more...]
Another Color Dare Challenge has arrived and this week we were dared to use green and white daisy! CTMH greens are Pear, Sweet Leaf, Fern, Topiary and New England Ivy. We could use any or all of them. I mostly used Pear. But I also used green glitter paper and ShinHan markers in Pastel Green (which I think matches Flaxen) and Leaf Green (which I [Read more...]
UPDATE: I now have a card kit using this stamp set available for purchase here. I was looking at all the cute cards on the Heart 2 Heart Challenge website and was feeling disappointed because I didn't think I had a cute bee stamp.

I know and believe in the true meaning of Easter BUT when the opportunity strikes, to indulge in chocolate, or more specifically, Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs, I an no fool and am not [Read more...]
I love classic Black & White. I think this card is kind of fun! It is formal yet with an edge. I used a floral embossing folder that is rather elegant and then pared it with the bold stripe and a lower case letter. The stripe total reminds me of 80's punk bands for some reason.

This week's Color Dare Challenge is to use Topiary, Sweet Leaf, Cotton Candy, Glacier and White Daisy. I really wanted to use a current stamp set for this dare but as I was going through my stamps I came across my Love Ya' Silly stamp set. Even though it is retired, I hadn't used it yet so I decided to give it a spin. I love the card layout, [Read more...]
