Anything Goes!

"Anything Goes...CTMH Style" is the challenge this week at Heart 2 Heart.  Every once in awhile, I get in a real creative funk.  So even with all the liberty afforded by the challenge, I was still in a dilemma.  Finally, I decided to use the September Stamp of the Month and Nutmeg, my favorite color from the new Basics palette.  Also, metallic accents seem to be trendy now, so there you go...I had the elements for my card!

I used Colonial White cardstock for the card base, the panels and the feather.  (Yes, it is retired, but you know that you have some in your stash!) I stamped the background with Nutmeg Ink.  The sentiment and feather were heat embossed with gold powder.  The mats are Nutmeg cardstock and Gold Glitter paper. I bumped up the feather with Thin 3-D Foam Dots and added some bling with Gold Glitter Gems.

Bear Hugs

It is sketch time at Heart 2 Heart.  Haley Bell Dyer designed a sketch that is just asking for your interpretation!  I love the Jack paper set and the cute little bear included in the Jack Cardmaking Stamp set and Thin Cuts, so I found a way to make them work.  This was a fun card to make.  I hope you are inspired to link up your own take on this sketch!

 Here is the have until the end of August to link your project.  Just click on this link to access the Heart 2 heart site.

Card Class!


Here is more information about the card class I have planned for Wednesday, August 16th.  As I mentioned, this class will be "come when you can" during the hours of 1:00 to 8:00 p.m.  We will be making 5 cards, so depending how quickly you work, you will want to allow around two hours to complete your projects.

For this class we will be using some papers and stamps from the new Annual Expressions catalog as well as some oldies, but goodies.  The class fee is $15.00.  I will furnish everything you will need except for tape runners.  You will need to bring one or two with you.  I will also provide beverages and a snack.

Something new...I will be offering a stamp set as a door prize. There will be several ways to enter:
      1 chance for coming to class
      1 chance for prepayment (check or Paypal)
      1 chance for bringing a friend
      1 chance for placing an order for Close to My Heart products the night of the class.

So what do you need to do?  For sure, I need an RSVP by Sunday, Aug 13th so I will have time to prepare the kits.  Please, also tell me if you are bringing a friend.  While it will be helpful to know what time you plan on coming, it is not necessary. Prepayment is also welcome, but payment will be accepted at class time.

I have missed seeing you for card class and look forward to our time together!
