I Spy . . .

How exciting!  Two of our DT members (including me--tee hee!) were recently spotlighted in the fab CAS Mix Up card challenge.  If you're unfamiliar with that one, it's a challenge for CAS mixed media cards with a very cool definition of mixed media.  Go check it out.

Also, check out Kimberly's fantastic Pick of the Month card (amazing, right?!) and my Outstanding Design card below.  We both used Concord & 9th and watercolor products along with other goodies available from The Heart Desires store.

THD Challenge 2- Take 2!

Katie here from KBStamps.  I hope you haven't forgotten about this month's THD Challenge.  I certainly haven't!  I mean, this challenge is so delicious, it is pretty much impossible to forget! You must remember this inspiration photo:

Here is my second take on the challenge.  I pulled from some of the colors and the hibiscus because they are so lovely!

I stamped this beautiful image from Technique Tuesday's Hibiscus Set with the Intense Black Ink from Hero Arts and then colored it with my Copics.  I love the colors completely, they are perfect.  This Favorite Things paper from Heidi Swapp makes the perfect backdrop.  The final touch is the Mama Elephant sentiment set. 

I do hope you'll join us before the challenge is over!  Thanks for visiting!

I Spy...

Tonya here, I wanted you to check out the fun card Toni made using products from The Heart Desires store.

I love the way she colored the unicorn and framed it in gold.  The We R Memory Keepers embossing folder is amazing with foiled cardstock, isn't it?  Just amazing.  #Frankie_Helps_Craft #theheartdesiresstore #heroarts #yournextstamp

The Power of Pink

Toni here.  I love the mix of bold stripes with floral, don't you?  Normally I make the stripes black but I'm mixing it up a bit.  The Neat and Tangled diecut looks ah-mazing in black glitter foam.  I snuck in the floral using the Doodlebug Fun in the Sun paper.  Isn't it fab with the pink stripe?  And check out the stripes more closely--they're on acetate so shiny, shiny!
I've used a combination of shiny and matte enamel dots.  The matte ones are so IT right now.  Love them!

While I'm here, I'll give another shout out to the second THD challenge.  I look back on the cards I've made based on the inspiration pic and am surprised at how different they all are.  Have you looked at the gallery to see what others have entered?  Fantastic work!
