H2H Challege + More Swap Sneak Peek

After a fun time at the pumpkin patch today, we came home and I had a nap with Not-So-Baby Max instead of getting up to my room to photograph and post these cards - totally worth it! In any case, Last night I did these two cards, both for my Swap due on November 2nd. 3 down, 1 to go!

The first one is based off the Sketch Challenge from Heart 2 Heart from back at the beginning of October. I used on of the beautiful new Top Coats Icings Overlays for the shiny foil accented borders in the background. I used one of the 4x6 photo overlays, trimmed off the borders, and layered those as ribbons. I find it super helpful to use my Rub & Remove Eraser to help peel off the non-scratch shipping coating from the acrylic image.I stamped and paper pieced the coffee mug using the Stamp set that comes in our upcoming December Club kit called Wonderland. The sentiment is stamped on an oval frame (cut using the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge). Then I accented everything with Stardust glitter glitz! There's a lot of sanding on the Chocolate Cardstock background - I love the super heavy grit on our adorable little sanding block. You just lay that awesome White Core CTMH cardstock on your scratch paper and sand away for that rough crosshatch texture.

The second card for tonight is also for the swap, and uses that same Wonderland paper and stamp set from our upcoming club kit. I paper pieced the mittens in Chocolate and Twilight by stamping the mittens once in each color. Then I trimmed off stripes of the Twilight color and mounted them onto the Chocolate colored image. I filled them in with Stardust (on the blue) and Bronze (on the chocolate) glitter Glitz Gel. Then I triple stamped the Polka Dot Border in twilight and accented with a teeny tiny organdy wrap and bow. Simple and sweet!

Tomorrow my Black Friday peeks continue. Thanks for stopping by!
