H2H Challenges: Something NEW!

For 2012, we're shaking things up at Heart 2 Heart Challenges! First, we have not one, but TWO design teams! Each team will play every other week, but we're also welcome to play on our "off" weeks. My team starts next week, but I couldn't resist playing along with this week's SOMETHING NEW challenge! Be sure to go check out all of our new DT members and their great NEW creations.



My "something new" is the new Close To My Heart "Rock the Block" special offer (available until the end of the month). You get the cool HUGE (E-size) stamp set featured here plus an awesome tray with nine 3-D cubes. (See my sidebar for more info.) I also used a NEW color combo from the NEW CTMH Spring/Summer Idea Book (available to customers 2/1/12): Lagoon, Sunset, Tulip, Olive, and Cocoa.







I first made a square (4.25") card using the flowers from the stamp set. Those square sparkles are definitely hip!


Here's another square card to "rock the block." I used the two different background pattern stamps for the four blocks. For the center sentiment, I first stamped it in Cocoa on Colonial White and then on Lagoon. I cut out the center panel of the Lagoon piece and adhered it to the Colonial White one. Again, gotta love those square Sparkles!



For the third card, no, your eyes aren't deceiving you. The focal stamp (originally) says "Love," but I cut it out and reworked it to spell "Velo" which is French for bicycle. I made this card in honor of my brother, who has a "velo" t-shirt, and gave it to him to send to one of his cycling friends.



Now, it's your turn to break out something NEW and get crafting! Link up your project to the H2H Challenge blog so that we can all enjoy. Try something new!
