"Weather" or Not | Heart2Heart Challenge

"Weather" or Not , are you ready for this challenge?
"Weather" or Not H2H challenge

Back with another H2H challenge! My inspiration for your challenge are the cards from the Choose to Shine card Kit.

Let me tell you a little bit about this kit. Each kit contains all the materials needed to create 12 cards. You'll walk away with 6 cards each in two different designs. Plenty of scraps to creatively make more cards, along with instructions and an adorable stamp set.

The first two cards, are the designs offered. The third card, is my take on the stamp set beyond the kit.

Favorite Tool| Heart2Heart Challenge

What is your go to Scrapbooking tool?

Hands down, every time I need to trim, or fussy cut, my Close to My Heart non-stick, Micro-Tip scissors are what I reach for.  I have 4 pairs, two are missing (My husbands fault) the other two are on my work table. So what is sooo special about these scissors?

First they are coated, with a non-stick surface to cut through adhesive without sticking. This is a must for me, I am always cutting my 3D foam tape down or over hang on paper that has adhesive on the back of it. I do not have worry about these scissors gumming up and becoming tough to move! Must for my fingers since my knuckles swell often.

Second, they are small and super sharp for detailed cutting. So when I am cutting something as small and detailed such as the sign and wreath below, I am able to turn my paper and get into those fine areas.

My second favorite CTMH tool is the shimmer brushes. In the card above you can see shimmer on the barn door. I used our Sugarplum shimmer brush.  Check out this 3 minute tutorial on the brushes and all 6 colors available. 


Love Blossoms| Dutch Door Card Tutorial

Have you seen or did you get your Love Blossoms Stamp set yet?

If not, this tutorial will certainly have you adding one to your shopping cart!  We are going to create a dutch door card using a pre-scored card base and the Love Blossoms Stamp set. Scroll down for the YouTube Video tutorial from my Facebook Live Coffee and Cards!

For those that like typed instructions, here is a basic step by step tutorial.
  • Using a Close to My Heart card base, cut the card off the score line.
  • Turning one piece horizontal, trim at 4.50 inches and score at 4.25 inches. Turn this piece vertical, and trim at 3.75 inches. 
  • Stamp image in Charcoal ink close to the top of your 4.50x3.75 inch piece. 
  • Use  a paper trimmer to eyeball a straight cut from the edge to the closest stamped image on each side. Then fussy cut around the rest if the foliage and flowers.
  • Colored in using block inking in new England ivy for the foliage and pixie for the flowers.
  • Stamp sentiment in versa mark ink and heat embossed in ranger black embossing powder.
  • Attach door to base using strong double sided tape. 
  • To finish the card off, Use the sugar plum shimmer brush  o highlight the flowers, and the black shimmer brush  with the end of paint brush to splatter black shimmer on to the card.

For those that love a visual tutorial, here is my Facebook Live Coffee and Cards upload to YouTube.
