This Week's Entry for the Heart 2 Heart Challenge

I recently found the Heart 2 Heart blog and was excited to see some of the really inspiring work posted there.  All of the work highlights Close To My Heart products and I've found things that I already want to "lift".  However, for this week's challenge the only thing I lifted was the sketch, which was actually required. :)  I really love how it turned out.  All of the products are CTMH except the brads, ribbon, and colored pencils.  Being new to CTMH, I'll have to add them to my collection as time goes by.  At any rate, the papers are part of the Sarsaparilla Level 2 Paper Pack and the stamps are from the "You're Great" MyAcrylix set.  I used CTMH inks, desert sand, chocolate, and black.  I would have preferred a different ribbon...maybe something brown and/or something lighter and "fluffier", but I'm happy enough with what I did with what I owned.  I can't believe I just said that, since in the past I would have driven 30 minutes to the craft store just to find the perfect ribbon.  Maybe I'm just getting old. ;)

Thanks for looking!

Here is the List of Supplies and Measurements:

  • Sarsaparilla Level 2 Pattern Papers and cardstock: 2 strips of your choice cut at 1 1/4" x 3 3/4"/; 2 strips of your choice cut at 1 1/2" x 3 3/4"; 1 strip cut at 1 3/4" x 5 3/4"; and 1 block cut at 2 3/4" x 4 5/8"

  • Colonial White Cardstock: 1 piece cut at 2 1/2" x 4 3/8", 1 piece cut at 5 3/4" x 5 3/4", enough scrap to stamp all four animals.

  • Desert Sand Cardstock 1 piece cut at 6" x 12" then scored at 2" from one side and scored at 4" from the opposite side.

  • Black Cardstock: 1 piece cut at 2 7/8" x 4 3/4"

  • Ribbon: approx. 24" (2 ft.)  I used SU! Bashful Blue.  I only have two CTMH colors right now. :(
I used the following supplies in the making of  this card:
Items marked with an * indicates products that I used that were not CTMH products, but you can bet I'll be adding them to my collection in time. ;)


  1. This is awesome! Wonderful take on the sketch! Thanks for playing along with H2H this week!

  2. Fabulous card! Love all the layers with the animals - beautiful! Thanks for playing along with H2H!

  3. This card is super! You put a great deal of effort into this card and it shows. From the stamping and cutting to the color choices and sketch interpretation--it is all FANTASTIC!

  4. This card is ADORABLE...not only the stamped images but the way you layered them, the colors, the interactiveness (that's what I call a "katy-word"). Thanks for playing along!

  5. Congrats on making the Friday Five! Hope you can join us for more challenges!
