Heartfelt Sentiments Team Seasonal Expressions Blog Hop

Welcome to a special edition of the Heartfelt Sentiments Team Blog Hop.  Today we are featuring projects made from the new Close To My Heart Seasonal Expressions 1 mini ideabook.  If you have arrived here from Melissa's blog then you definitively are on the right path!!

The very first thing that caught my eye while I was cruisin' through the Seasonal Expressions was this fabulous stamp set called A Thing Well Done.   It screamed debi and I just couldn't wait to get my hands on it and create.
For my card I used chocolate ink to stamp the images first.  I then distressed the entire card front with Cashmere, Chocolate and Cocoa inks on a Colonial White base.  I chose Pacifica cardstock for my accent color on the Chocolate card base.  The addition of a few light brown pearls gave it just the finishing touches it needed.

This stamp set is a Hostess Only set, so if you'd like to create with it, let me know and we'll book a party for you!!

Thanks for stopping by today.  Now hop on over to Judy Faye's blog and have a look at her creation!!

Tinsel Time

Here I am, back with our final challenge for 2014 at Heart 2 Heart Challenge Blog.  It's been a great 6 months and I am excited to continue sharing my creations with you for another 6 months!!  This week we have a color challenge for must use Lagoon, Black and Silver!  Lagoon and Black are a favorite color combination of mine - so this was a great challenge!  
To create my card I cut some strips from the Chalk It Up paper packet tearing the ends to resemble washi tape, then added a strip of Silver Shimmer tape for some sparkle  The stars and sentiment are stamped from a retired CTMH set,  I added a few silver sequins and some black  sparkles for extra shine.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Please share your "Tinsel Time"creation with us at H2H!

I hope everyone has a very enjoyable holiday season - see you next year!!

Heartfelt Sentiments Paper Focus - Confetti Wishes

Welcome to another month of fabulous creations on the Heartfelt Sentiments Team Blog Hop!  This month we are creating with Confetti Wishes.  If you are coming from Melissa D's blog you are on the right track!!

If you've had a chance to see the papers in the Confetti Wishes packet (if not, click here) then you will agree it is pretty much geared towards birthday layouts and paper crafting designs.  I decided to shift the focus away from birthday and do this layout that could be any type of photos.

The first hurdle I had to get past with this paper was the bright colors.  Thank goodness for the deep rich blue color of the Pacifica cardstock - it saved the day for me.  I incorporated most of the papers from the packet in the layout as well as quite a few of the complement stickers.  I added a few of the Aqua Dots and was done!! 

How about a little contest now?  Tis the season for giving - right?  If you can tell me where the striped banner pieces on the right side of the layout came from, I'll put your name in a drawing to win this very layout!! Leave your answer in the comments section for a chance to win!!

Thanks for stopping by today.  Now hop on over the Aggie's blog and see what wonderful creation she has for you!
