Spring Forward!

If you are looking for my Design Team project for PAPER PLAYTIME, please click here.

Good Morning Everyone!

This week at Heart 2 Heart Challenges, our challenge has to do with "Springing Forward" and Daylight Savings Time.  Your project can be anything that has to do with that theme: clocks, time, sun, spring, etc.  - the possibilities are endless!

For my project as a Design Team member, I created this:

This card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and will fit in a standard A2 size envelope.  I cut the card shape using our Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  The card shape can be found on page 58, D8, Card, < Tab2 > and was cut at 5 1/2".

The rosettes on the front were cut using our exclusive Artiste Cricut cartridge.  They can be found on page 50, B10, Accent 4, < p > cut at 3/4" and 1 1/4".

I used our Chantilly paper pack because I just love the vibrant Spring colors.  The word "spring" comes from a retired stamp set called "Peeps". For the "time to" and "forward" sentiments I used a stamp set called A Typeface.

Two of the coordinating colors for this paper pack are Cotton Candy and Pear and so I used those ink pads to stamp the sentiments.

I hope you enjoyed my project for this challenge.  I can't wait to see what you submit for our challenge.  ALSO, don't forget that we are doing MARCH MADNESS at Heart 2 Heart.  That means we are having giveaways all month.  This includes non-Consultants AND Consultants.  We are also looking for first-time participants and there is a special prize just for them!  Stop on by Heart 2 Heart and join us!

  1. Hi Lucy! Love the green and pink color combo--perfect for spring for sure! I jumped all the way to summer in my card, lol! I completely forgot about that adorable word "spring" from last year. It looks adorable on the rosette! :)

  2. I love the pink and green together...very Springy! And I love the little hint of the Chantilly paper that peeks out on the bottom of the card!

  3. Love this card! The colors are fabulous! Lucy cool job on it!
