Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #157

I needed a birthday card for my daughter, but the one I made last week was really for a little girl, so I made a similar one but with a little older girl on it.  Ok, my daughter just turned 31, so maybe this is still more of a kids card, but she will always be my little girl.

I based the design on the Atlantic Hearts Sketch #157.    I used Close to My Heart Balloon Ride paper and PML card, Charlotte Complements, Black & Gold Ribbon, Stamp Set C1633 "For Family" and a stamp by Paper Sweeties.

3 Amigos Mini Blog Hop

Welcome to the Three Amigos April 2016 Close to My Heart Mini-Blog Hop. We are three Close to My Heart Consultants with a love for Stamping and Scrapping and would like to share our creative ideas with you. On the 3rd day of each month we will feature a different CTMH product or challenge and create a card, layout or other project. There are only 3 stops on this hop so it will only take a few minutes to hop through. 


This month our project challenge is to create something using 3 tools.  The tools I used are pretty basic to scrapbooking: 

I also used the new stamp set CC1065 Hello Paradise which was available only a short time in March.


Now hop on over to Susan's Blog and Lisa's Blog to see what they have created this month!

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge 152

I have a Fathers Day Card for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge this week made with Close to My Heart Products: Urban Paper, Stamp Sets A1173 The Best Dad Ever and D1660 Ink Blot, Slate Ink and Square Durables.  I actually went upstairs to my Scrap room to clean it up but instead wound up making this card.  Maybe tomorrow it will get cleaned...

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #151

I used a stamp set that I just got this week for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #151.  It was so obvious to me that the sketch was saying Bandaids! So a Get well card it is.  The stamp set is Close to My Heart B1508 "Kiss it Better".  The sentiment is hard to see in this picture, it says "Hugs and Kisses and Get Well Wishes".

3 Amigo's Mini Blog Hop

Welcome to the Three Amigos March 2016 Close to My Heart Mini-Blog Hop. We are three Close to My Heart Consultants with a love for Stamping and Scrapping and would like to share our creative ideas with you. On the 3rd day of each month we will feature a different CTMH product or challenge and create a card, layout or other project. There are only 3 stops on this hop so it will only take a few minutes to hop through. 


This month our project challenge is to create something using 3 Stamps.  I used 3 stamps from the same set, D1684 Beach Days.  The Regatta paper pack was perfect for the simple layout I created.  The blue and white Anchor paper matched my granddaughter's hat exactly!  I also used Pomegranate and Sapphire Ink.    


These pictures were taken last summer at a private beach on 4th Lake in Inlet, NY.  It was Madison's first time at a beach.  


Now hop on over to Susan's Blog and Lisa's Blog to see what they have created this month!

H2H and Color My Heart


This week Heart 2 Heart and Color My Heart got together on their Blog Challenges!
The Color Dare challenge is to combine Black, White Daisy and any  1, 2 or 3  of the following reds:  Pomegranate, Ruby and Cranberry. The Heart 2 Heart themed challenge is “Share the Love” which you can interpret to mean something with hearts and love messages or something with the February Constant Campaign “Share the Love” stamp set or something else that reminds you of a “Share the Love” theme.

I used La Vie En Rose paper from Close to My Heart and Stamp set B1507 To the Moon for my card.  I also used the color Pomegranate in my card.  I colored the ribbon and Feathers with my Shin Han Markers as close to Pomegranate as I could get it.
