heARTful stamping challenge – Green

This week’s theme and monthly prize

green + a stamp

Mar 12 – Mar 19

This week’s heARTful stamping Challenge is to create something with green…after all, Saint Patrick’s Day is almost here!  You can find last week’s challenge here – open through Sunday, midnight.

Throughout the month I have different sorts of challenges…”use it”, themes, sketch, etc.  There are weekly Top 3 winners and a random winner from all of the participants receives the monthly prize drawing.  I was able to pick up an extra February CTMH’s Stamp of the Month which I think is perfect for Easter – it’s called Easter Bunny

This Week’s Inspiration

I have been trying to participate in a few more challenges (not just my own!) and found a new to me one this week!  It’s called “Less is More” and this week’s Cue Card is leaves.  I love one layer cards and I had not yet played with my CTMH Lovely Leaves set so this was perfect!!  It was a super fast card to put together – I merely inked my leaf, spritzed the stamp lightly with water and then stamped.  For a little extra, I embossed the sentiment from CTMH’s Here for You set.

supplies: Lovely Leaves stamp set, Here for You stamp set, Juniper, Sweet Leaf and New England Ivy inks, Gold embossing powder

Cyndi’s card is super green and I love her “girlie” little turtles from CTMH’s Some Kinda Wonderful.  Look at those flower sequins, adorable!  This really is the perfect Saint Patrick’s Day card. 

supplies: Some Kinda Wonderful, CTMH

I used the  CAS(E) This Sketch layout from last week for this card, but I was too late to share it for the official challenge.  That’s okay!  I love how a sketch can get me started when I’m in a slump – and coming off of the flu and then a bad, bad cold … I have been almost too exhausted to create.  For this card I just spritzed my acrylic block with some assorted green Splash left over from my amuse studio days … and some spritz of water and then stamped the block for my background panel.  The real focus of this card is my CTMH Good Thymes sentiment and herb stamps.  Love this set! Close To My Heart

supplies: Good Thymes stamp set (CTMH), watercolor cardstock (other), Onyx, Green cardstock, white embossing powder and assorted Splash (a|s)

 I hope you join us!
