Going to the Dogs

Very simple, stamped & embellished cards to benefit local dog rescue groups ...

I used a variety of CTMH stamps & embellishments and others from H*L* too.

Save the dogs -- always check your local rescue groups! Always Adopt rather than Shop!

(Thanks, Marie, for letting me know you couldn't see the Picasa web album above ... it shows for me ... anyone else having trouble seeing it? Please let me know! )

Here are a few cards from the entire album:

H2H Challenge: A Stamped Sentiment

Clear Card Front -- Art Philosophy Cricut layered flowers on Dimensional Scallop

Inside -- The Stamped Sentiment 

(Before I added the mini brads inside)

It's "Sentiment challenge" time at Heart 2 Heart Challenges! We were challenged to use only a stamped sentiment and no other stamps on a project. Here's my clear acrylic card with the sentiment inside. If you know me, you know I just LOVE making clear acrylic cards in a CAS style.

I used all CTMH products:

Sentiment:  "Flower Pot"  D1409
Clear Acrylic Scalloped Card Base
Roxie CS
Felicity B&T
Art Philosophy Cricut flowers and Dimensional Scallop Die Cut
Ink: Hollyhock
Mini brads
Natural hemp
Liquid glass

Be sure to look at all the great paper art at Heart 2 Heart!

I've enjoyed being a guest design team member for the month of September. Thanks to Mary and all the DT members for having me share my paper art through H2H.  I always love to see all your creative paper art work!

So glad you stopped by!

CS: Kraft, Twilight, and Sweet Leaf
Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge: Circles and Butterflies

H2H Challenge: A Cricut/Die Cut Project

It's a huge honor to be the guest member of the Design Team at Heart2Heart Challenges for September!

I chose to use the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge (a wowzer of a new CTMH product!) to cut two different flowers and a round medallion shape to use on the top of the My Creations card box.  (This box is also a new product in CTMH's Fall/Winter Idea Book).

The chipboard My Creations card box is a little larger than 4 x 6 inches, has a magnetic closure, and it's shown here holding a variety of coordinating  4 x 5.5 inch note cards. (You can see my Roxie cards HERE.) The designer box and cards will make a special gift for a very dear person's birthday!

I used all CTMH products:

Roxie Paper Packet
CTMH My Creations card box
Kraft color ready border
Pewter Filigree charm
Crocheted ivory ribbon
Dimensional Element banner
Stamps: Celebration set
Inks: Tulip, Desert Sand
Decorative Pin
Bonding Memories Adhesive

{Two colors of Cricut-cut flowers; third flower is a "bud" I cut freehand and rolled. Each has a Sparkle in the center. The bud's tiny sparkle doesn't show very well in the photo.}

Thanks for visiting and for leaving your comment! Happy chirping!

H2H Challenge: Favorite Color Combo

The Heart2Heart Challenge this week is to choose and use our favorite colors in a paper art project.

It's SO HARD to choose! I can't think of any color that I don't like!

Lately I've been using a lot of the colors in the Sophia, Wonderland, and the Roxie packets. So I thought about a color combo that makes me feel so peaceful and happy. That would be the colors in the Felicity Collection! Maybe I like them because they take me way back to the 1970s when we were first married, when we had an orange/olive/brown color scheme going through our first home, and when we traveled from coast to coast and sang "This Land Is Your Land" almost the entire way! (Uh, oh, now you know I'm ancient!) Part of me likes them because of their rich, warm, Autumn hues.

Side view:

Here's my CTMH clear acrylic card with these favorite colors and products:

Autumn Terracotta
Barn Red
Desert Sand

(I used the Autumn Terracotta Ink and the leaf stamp from the Art Philosophy Cricut Collection to stamp onto the Kraft Paper leaves.  I used Barn Red Ink for the "Love" on the canvas button and for the inside sentiment.)

Felicity Papers
Clear Acrylic Card base
Kraft Paper
Art Philosophy Cricut-cut leaves
Canvas button
Natural hemp
Liquid Glass
Foam Squares
Barn Red Marker
Celebration stamps (sentiments)

Be sure to see all the great favorite color combos that Heart2Heart is showcasing HERE!

Glad you stopped by!
