Adventure Color Palette with Heart2Heart Challenges!

Today's challenge at Heart2Heart is all about ADVENTURE!  Our new colors this year all come from this fun, vibrant color palette so it was an easy decision to use our Adventure Paper Fundamentals for this card!  

My project is the first card I'll be sending off to my son who just started his new adventure last week - going off to college to study Marine Biology.  When I saw our new Hooked On You stamp set I had to get it just so I could make him a card to celebrate.
I colored the fish in with our Watercolor Pencils and then added some of our shimmer brush.  For the water, I topped my watercolor pencil with a layer of Liquid Glass that I painted on with a brush for a nice thin coat.
I wanted to keep this flat for mailing so for accents I used our Silver Foil Tape, a scattering of our Silver Sequins and a bit of our twine from our Enchantment Ribbon Pack.

Holiday Expressions New Product Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Holiday Expressions New Product Blog Hop!  If you've come here from Terrie's Blog you are on the right track.  To get a complete list of all participating CTMH bloggers, click HERE.

Today I am showcasing the beautiful Workshop Your Way Just to Say Cardmaking Kit.  This kit really stood out for me because of the trendy font they used for the sentiment stamps!
I wanted to jazz the kit up so I broke out the Confetti folder, then sanded a bit and then went over each dot with our Shimmer Brush.  Our new color Raspberry color makes an awesome accent statement on this card!
I also added a bit of Shimmer Brush to the stamped heart and then topped it off with a bit of Liquid Glass for added dimension.
 The thank you card was jazzed up with our Confetti Stars embossing folder and accented with our new color Blossom.
This sweet kit makes 10 cards for just $19.95 and I know I'll be using the sentiment stamps for other projects!

#CreateKindness - National Stamping Month and Heart2Heart Challenges!

This week at Heart2Heart we are celebrating the National Stamping Month September special called Create Kindness!  This adorable kit was so much fun to work with this week! 
I cut one of the mini cards in half and then did a mountain fold to make it into a pop up element on the front of the card.  This will fold flat for mailing (always a consideration) but when released from the envelope will pop back out for lots of dimension.
Our new Shimmer Brush is fabulous to work with!  I added some shimmer on top of the white diagonal stripes in the green fundamentals paper and also on the purple hearts.  A dollop of Liquid Glass on top and they look like custom sized gems!
The little triangle gems are from our Enamel and Glitter Duos Green package - I've had them for a while and realized they completely match the new Emerald color in our Adventure Paper Fundamentals!

If you'd like to pick up the Create Kindness Kit OR purchase the individual pieces a-la-carte, you can click on the linked products above or visit my shopping site at:

I hope you'll take some time to make something fun today and pass it on to create and SHARE the kindess!  Then hop on over to our Heart2Heart Challenges blog and link up there to share!

#CreateKindness - National Stamping Month Blog Hop!

Welcome to the National Stamping Month Blog Hop where we are celebrating the #CreateKindess kit!  If you have come here from Kathy's Blog you are on then right track. 

I wanted to go a bit outside the box on this kit so I used the Create Kindess kit pieces to create a larger standard size card. I stamped in our Memento Ink and colored in with our Shinhan Markers adding a few drops of Liquid Glass to the centers of the flowers for some pop and shine.
This rick-rac style circle is from our new Flower Market cartridge!  I love how it emphasizes the sentiment on the inside of the card.
The heart base is from our new Adventure Fundamentals and the pink ribbon is from the matching Adventure Ribbon pack - love how easy it is to color coordinate with these new paper suites!

The Create Kindness kit is available during the month of September and can be purchased as a complete set at a 15% discount OR you can get the pieces al-la-carte!  I think it's wonderful that they have that option for people who may just want the adorable M size stamps.  After running the numbers I decided to get the whole kit as I needed another of the small storage containers anyways.
