Heart 2 Heart Challenge

This week at Heart 2 Heart Challenge we have a color challenge.  Beautiful Autumn colors of New England Ivy, Autumn Terracotta and Honey.  This is what I came up with.  My inspiration was remembering when I was a little girl and my Grandma and I would collect leaves and then place them between waxed paper with crayon bits and then take the iron to it.  Enjoy!

  • Paper:  New England Ivy, Autumn Terracotta and Colonial White Cardstock
  • Stamps:  Spring Leaves, Fall Leaves and a pumpkin stamp from my stash
  • Inks:  New England Ivy, Autumn Terracotta, Honey, Desert Sand and Versamark
  • Embellishments:  Crochet Trim from stash, Prisma Glitter
  • Other: Copic Markers Y15 and Y17,  Martha Stewart glitter glue (I like this because when you apply it to our inks they will bleed just a bit so it makes the color more intense once the glitter is applied.
  • Technique:  Emboss resist using clear embossing powder then I applied ink with a stiple brush in small circles then blended with a sponge.

These are the rest of the cards I completed this past week.  A special order from my sister-in-law.  Hope she likes them!

I made the rose using CTMH Just Blooms!

This one I used Tresa Black's Lollipop Flowers and Faux Stitching techniques.


  1. Your background for the first card looks really nice. You did a good job with that technique.
