H2H Challenge – From Your Heart to Ours

Good Monday Morning! Welcome to another Heart 2 Heart Challenge!

We are continuing our journey this week using items/photos to inspire us. Here is my creation for this week’s H2H Challenge – From Your Heart to Ours…


My inspiration this week came from the below photo that I came across on Pinterest from Two Shades of Pink.

The banner is what caught my eye at first and then I pulled the white pom poms into my card by adding the white clouds using a flower stamp from the My Acrylix Fill in the Blank stamp set…check out the technique below.

Can you guess what other stamp we used from the My Acrylix Fill in the Blank stamp set? If you guessed “flower,” you’re right! Since our My Acrylix stamps are flexible, we’ve scrunched up the flower stamp in different ways to get these cute cloud images. We stamped them on B&T Duos® paper to give them a subtle pattern.

  1. I love this card. Was it your intention to make it look like a clothes line (banner)? That's what I thought of when I first looked at it. Makes me think of my Grandma's house on a sunny, Summer Saturday (when I was little). Thanks for the fun trip down memory lane. I really, really do like your card. :)

  2. Cute card. I'm a fan of pennant banners, too. I like how you put the tree in with the clouds.


Thank you for taking the time to comment and have a blessed day! Pamela
