Rose for an Anniversary!

Time again for the Color My Heart Color Dare challenge!  This week we are challenged to use Poppy, Tangerine, Willow, Glacier, Slate and White Daisy with gold being an option.  The rose on this card is kind of a sneak peek of a new set that will be available in the 2017-18 Annual Expressions.  This catalog will go live on August 1st and you will be able to see it on my website www.suebruch.ctmh.com.
.


The rose from the Beautiful You set is stamped in three layers.  In order to stay with the assigned colors, I stamped the first layer with second generation Tangerine, the second with first generation Tangerine and the final layer with Poppy.  The leaves were stamped with Willow and the veins with Slate.  The sentiment from the Workshops Your Way Anniversary Cardmaking Kit is stamped with Slate. I used Gold Glitter Gems for the bling.  The Glacier patterned paper from the Prickly Pear set was die cut with a die from Lawn Fawn.

This card turned out clean and classy...and that makes me happy!


Be sure to visit the Color Dare site for more beautiful cards created with this color combination!


Later,
Sue

So Lovely!

I'll make this post short and sweet.  I was so happy with this layout I did today that I just had to share.  I think, mostly I am happy with the subject matter...my granddaughter's first prom and how beautiful she looked.  Her dress, her hair, flowers...everything was perfect for her.


A few design details:
Design credit to Cheryl Even
Used the Hello Lovely paper packet (retired)
Journaling block is a Picture my Life card
Used floral zip strips as accent
While not seen on the photo, I used the Shimmer Pen to accent the title
I had intended to use some Complements, but they would have made the layout too busy; used Gold Glitter Gems instead

Enjoy!

In Stitches...Old and New!

When I saw that our Heart 2 Heart challenge was In Stitches,  I  could not get the Stitched Together stamp set out of my mind. Because it is long retired, I combined it with current product to demonstrate how the old and new work together..  This pattern is from the Workshops Your Way Anniversary Cardmaking Kit (G1131). The sentiment is, strangely enough, from the Race Car Birthday Set (B1531). I used patterned paper from the Adventure Fundamentals set along with White Daisy and Sea Glass cardstock.  The stamping was done with Memento Black and Raspberry inks. The bling additions are Silver Shimmer Trim and Silver Sequins.





This is the card as created from the kit.  I love the Sorbet and Sea Glass together!



And this is the same card done with papers from the No Worries collection.  I love them all!

This card was also submitted to the Color My Heart Color Dare challenge.  You will also love the inspiration found there!

Heart 2 Heart...No Worries

The entire Design Team at Heart 2 Heart Challenges is coming together this week to challenge you with interpretations of No Worries. This may mean using the papers and/or the colors from the paper pack with the same name or it may mean creating a layout or card that reflects that feeling.  I can picture beach or picnic layouts, kids enjoying summer vacation or maybe just a floral card that invokes feelings of joy or peace.



I chose to use No Worries papers and the No Worries--Scrapbooking stamp set to create my card. This is the card I will be using as a swap at the Close to My Heart convention.  Actually, when you read this, I will already be home from Salt Lake City loaded with new ideas and projects that I will be able to share with you.  I am getting so excited!

So, keeping this short, I hope you are inspired by this card and will visit the Heart 2 Heart Challenge site to see what else the Design Team has created for you.  While you are there, why not link your project?  We love to be inspired!
