It is Adventure Time

Welcome to another Heart2Heart Challenge. This week we are sharing Adventure, which could be an Adventure you have had or using the NEW Adventure colors.

Are you ready for Christmas? I know it is still early BUT for my card makers, it is never to early to get into the Christmas card making mode.

Here is a little sneak peek at next month's Stamp of the Month -- will share more in October!!


I used the new Willow Adventure color with one of my favorite Christmas reds, Cranberry, even sounds like Christmas.

The Ruby polka dot ribbon is so much fun to play with -- love the NEW ribbons.

I added a White Daisy doily cut from the Cricut.

Are you ready to hop on over the Heart2Heart Challenge blog and share you take on Adventure!! We would love to have you join us!

Heart2Heart Create Kindness

This week the Heart2Heart Challenge will be all about Kindness!! Our Create Kindness card kit was the inspiration for my layout. Using a Magic how to book recipe made creating so much easier, easy peasy is my motto.


Using the word stamp from four of the Create Kindness card kit stamps created a color ready border!

And the sparkly green glitter triangles add just enough bling!

One of the Create Kindness cards cut in half was the perfect pattern paper addition to this layout,

Adding a little Adventure ribbon pack pink/white twine add a little texture to this piece, stamped with one of the four sentiment stamps from the Create Kindness card kit. And these stamps may be purchased separately!!

The title is both a Cricut Flower Market font cut and the cool alphabet stamp set, ready to color.

Please hop over the Heart2Heart blog and share your best Create Kindness project.

Enchantment Fundamentals are Great for Fall

The gem colors of the Enchantment Fundamentals (Z3254) are great for creating your Fall projects. Here is a Family Thanksgiving layout, all ready for those wonderful photos.

Adding the Artbooking pumpkins cut in Saffron and inked in Poppy add the Fall feel. With the September's Stamp of the Month, Blessed Beyond Measure S1609), sentiments stamped all the way around it shares how blessed and thankful the Fall season is.



And the Rustic Home ribbon (Z3262) gives the earthy feel of Fall,

This layout uses the Magic how to book recipe --

Thankful Pumpkin Card

Another of my Fall Card Kit cards uses not only the colors of Fall but also a great big ole' pumpkin!! The pumpkin comes from one of my favorite stamp sets from the Holiday Expression catalog, do you have your copy? Leave me a contact and I will share how you can receive your FREE copy.

I stamped the pumpkin three times, once in Poppy, once in Cocoa, and once in Saffron. I cut and paper pieced two Poppy pieces and three Saffron pieces atop the Cocoa image. This gave me a Cocoa stem and by popping up the two inside pieces with the thin 3D Foam tape and the middle Saffron piece with the thick 3D Foam tape, it gave the pumpkin some depth.

The Autumn Wishes sentiment is from the same stamp set, Autumn Wishes B1530, where the pumpkin image is found.

The oval around the sentiment is from the NEW Operation Smile stamp set, True Love D1711.

And, of course, I had to use one of the Thankful sentiments from September's Stamp of the Month, Blessed Beyond Measure S1609.

When lining up your stamp images, place them on your Versamat using the lines to get them straight.

And
 And place the block on over the stamp, again using the lines to keep it straight. This will make stamping a straight sentiment easier.
