In one of the demonstrator yahoo groups I’m in we get weekly challenges. This weeks challenge was to blow the dust off a set we hadn’t used in a while and create something using it.
Well I did that with Looks Like Spring but that was before the challenge was given so I decided rather than just share that card with the group I’d pull out another that needed the dust blown off (which there are quite a few)….hehehehe. That happens when you have a lot of stamp sets as you tend to play with new favourites and forget about the other ones you’ve been neglecting.
You’ve probably guessed that the set I decided to pull out was Heartfelt Thanks. I have used the Sketch Challenge from SplitCoastStampers for this week (SC193) for my layout.
For this first card I also chose to use a Colour Challenge from SplitCoastStampers (CC124) which is Old Olive, Regal Rose & Pretty In Pink. I used the full Sketch for this card also as there was an optional piece to the layout which is the circular piece.
I wasn’t too sure if I liked this card once it was finished but the more I looked at it the more I liked it. If I didn’t grow to like it you probably wouldn’t have seen it…..hehehe.
Stamp sets: Heartfelt Thanks, Circle of Friendship
Card: Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Whisper White, Old Olive Prints DSP
Ink: Old Olive, Pretty in Pink & Regal Rose Markers.
Accessories: Tool Kit, 1″ , 1 1/4″ & 1 3/8″ circle punches, Stampin’ Dimensionals, stamp-a-ma-jig.
This second card I decided to leave the optional piece out as I used the ‘heartfelt’ word stamp randomly over my base card and thought that was enough. I used the same colours as one of the cards in my previous post of Always Artichoke, Almost Amethyst and Lovely Lilac.
I’m still in 2 minds about this one. I much prefer the True Friends card using these colours so I’m not sure if it’s just that I used the retired Almost Amethyst DSP in the previous card and I didn’t in this one. This card just looks a little dark to me.
What do you think??
