Fun Sketch at Atlantic Hearts

Left Overs From Holiday Kitchen
When the holidays come around at our house it's time to bring out all the recipe books to make all the holiday goodies. We use at least 6 different books to put together the holiday dinners and the holiday treats. Now...they can be all in one place. Thank you CTMH and the new Holiday Kitchen Recipe Kit
After making my recipe cards I used the left overs 
to make some fun cards.
The Sketch from Atlantic Hearts makes a
 really nice greeting card.
Be sure to check out Atlantic Hearts each week for an fun and creative sketch for your newly made cards.

South of the Border

The Colors of Mexico
Green represents Hope, White stands for 
purity, and Red symbolized the
 color of blood for those who died fighting 
for Mexico's independence. 
Merry Christmas to our neighbors to the South.

Be sure to share your South of the Border 
creations at Heart 2 Heart.

Color Dare #310

 Fun With Kraft Cardstock
Stamping on Kraft cardstock with white pigment ink gives a fun and country look to any card.  After stamping the image with white pigment ink, I used first generation Ruby for the center flower and second generation Ruby for the surrounding flowers. The leaves are stamped with second generation Peacock. Adding a few White pigment ink splatters finish the look. The greeting is stamped with first generation Peacock.

Be sure to share your creations with Kraft, Peacock, 
and Ruby colors at Color My Heart. You still one 
week to play with these colors.

Cuteness Overload

With a Punny Pal & a Sneak Peak
I just couldn't wait to try a shaker card with this cute 
little bunny from the Punny Pal stamp set
Since I don't have my shaker kit yet I had to make up 
one with what I had on hand. I'm looking forward 
to the shaker kits for an easier time making one.
In the mean time here's my Hoppy Birthday card 
for my honey bunny. Is that bunny cute or what? 
Actually all the punny pals are adorable. Be sure to get
 yours before they retire on Friday, August 31st. 
Be sure to show us your cuteness at Heart 2 Heart.

Those Were the Days

Of Heavy Metal
For my heavy metal I had to go back all the way to 2009 and the Wishes Card Confidence Program. Those were the days of metal rimmed tags, metal bookplates, Pewter designer brads, brads of all sizes, photo clips, photo hangers, hinges, safety pins, ribbon slides, edge anchors, and on and on.  Oh, we don't want to forget about those eyelets. Those were the heavy metal days at CTMH.
This card is the Delightful Dots pattern from Wishes. I used the round metal bookplate and the pewter designer brad for my heavy metal. To update my card I used a color combination from the new Love of Color inspiration guide. The colors are Carolina, Sapphire, Lilac, and Pebble. 
Now it's your turn to show us your heavy metal at Heart 2 Heart

Fun With Layers

At Heart 2 Heart
Adding layers to your cards give texture
 and dimension. It could add to the postage but
 if you hand deliver that will solve the problem.
The background has three layers with a card on top. 
The card has a thanks giving greeting with a layer 
of banners topped with a flower and a popped up heart. 
Strips of paper decorate the bottom.
The finishing touch is a layer of baker's twine and 
enamel gems on the flowers.
Now let's see your layers at Heart 2 Heart.

A Little Bit of a Sneaky Peak

 At Atlantic Hearts
I've been working on my Open House goodies with the new Tri Annual Idea Book. While working with "Hello Pumpkin" paper pack I just couldn't resist making a card using the sketch at Atlantic Hearts. The cats and BOO are Cricut cuts. This sketch would be great with all the new paper packs. Off to make more.
Using this sketch with the new paper packs shows the new prints, colors, and themes. Will post more later.
