H2H colour me crafty

The challenge this week on the heart2heart challenges blog is to use the colours lagoon, pear and sunset in a project.  I thought about this for a few days and had lots of different ideas for two of the colours but not the third.  Today is my older son and his wife's ninth wedding anniversary (where has the time gone) so I cruised pinterest and came up with a new idea....
I spotted a card with a butterfly as the focal point, but it did not work for this anniversary card, especially after playing with the new 'artiste' cartridge and spotting the heart.;)  So I cut out the butterflies and heart on with the cricut, sponged them in lagoon, sunset and pear.   The heart is sponged in pear, the pattern is 'pieced together' from the Wishes book.  I used the 'Trinity' alphabet for the nine and years and congrats is with the 'Artiste' cartridge.  The heart is popped up for a focus, all the butterflies have a sparkle in them, one for each of their children and the brads are the antique copper.  My youngest grand daughter had an enjoyable afternoon stamping.

H2H challenge sympathy

Hi all the H2H challenge this week was to make a sympathy card.  I have made two, the same, using the two different inks, pigment and water-based dye ink.  I wanted to see if the image would look different with the different inks.
Trying to remember which is which, I think the one on the left is the new pigment ink in Ruby and the right is the water-based ink also in Ruby.  I used the new 'To you and yours' and 'Words of comfort' stamp sets.  Cardinals have a very special and personal meaning for me, five years ago one of our grand-daughters died from SIDS, we had not had cardinals near our property ever.  A month or so after this tragedy we had a pair of cardinals come to our feeders and stay in our neighbourhood, it was to me a messaged from God that it would be all right and He was still there.
I used the above mentioned stamp sets and cardstock in the following colours: ruby, whisper and slate, the wording ink is in slate.

Convention cards

Hi all thought I would post some of the cards that I have made using the new My Acrylics Pun Fun stamp set from Close to my Heart.  This is one of the stamps sets that we received from convention.




I just love the new sparkle ribbon we have, it is self adhesive and you can do so much with it.  Great addition to our accessories line!  Check my web site to view the new idea book and see what is all new for you!
