Heart 2 Heart Challenge

Welcome to the Heart 2 Heart Challenge for this first week of Novemeber! I'm honored to be a sponsor this week and hope you all have a great time playing along! Be sure to click the H2H link in the upper left corner of my blog for the home page with details and directions....and to see the prize that could be yours!


I hope you've been clicking on the link in the upper left corner of my blog and checking out all the fantastic ideas each week!

The challenge for this week is a color challenge. Create something using the colors: Brown Bag, Sunset and Indian Corn Blue! I wouldn't have thought to use these colors together but had A LOT of fun doing it for this challenge. That's the great part about a challenge...stepping outside of your creative zone and trying something new or different! Take a look at some of my efforts....

I LOVE how this card turned out! The stamp set is D1298 Beautiful Things. I hadn't used this set in a while and it just reminded me how pretty it can be! Here's a list of the supplies I used:
--D1298 Beautiful Things
--D1306 Treasure Life (message)
--Cardstock: Colonial White, Brown Bag, Indian Corn Blue, Sunset
--Inks: Brown Bag, Sunset, Indian Corn Blue
--Antique Copper brads
--round sponge
--Spellbinder dies & Cuttlebug-oval layered on torn rectangle
The pine bough and cattail images were cut out and glued to the top to give just a bit of dimension. A cattail was stamped in the lower right on the inside of the card as an added touch.

I find myself reaching for this stamp set over and over again! A subtle tone on tone stamping at the bottom of the card helped add some interest and not compete with the main image.
Supplies:
--D1436 The Present
--Cardstock: Colonial White, Brown Bag, Sunset
--Inks: Brown Bag, Sunset, Indian Corn Blue 
--Colonial White ribbon
--Mocha Pearls
--round sponge
--Spellbinder die & Cuttlebug

This was a quick and simple card. I love the clean lines of the design.
--D1306 Treasure Life

So there are some ideas to get your creative juices going! Get out your Brown Bag, Sunset and Indian Corn Blue inks/cardstock and join the fun! Be sure to link your post to the H2H Challenge and join the fun!
