RemARKable Hearts A-Flutter Blog Tour


Are you lovin’ what you’re seein’???  The RemARKables come up with some fabulous designs and it’s an honor to be included in this tour.  The hearts are a-flutterin’ in my house with not just Valentines’ Day but a wedding coming up in February:

Maui Stamper Hearts a Flutter Project SuiteYep, it’s my favorite blue-and-green color combo again!  This time I chose Wild Wasabi and Tempting Turquoise, a well matched pair in hue and intensity.  Let’s start with the favor jar:

Maui Stamper Hearts a flutter favor jarPretty simple – a 4 ounce quilted glass jar with a couple of embellishments and some seam binding ribbon.  You can tell by the shimmer on the green strips that I used Wild
Wasabi embossing powder to make that color pop.  The coordinating framelits are key to getting all of these elements cut out in no time flat!  (and if you’re an M&M fan, those are Dark Chocolate Mint M&Ms, and yes they are all shades of green!!)

Maui Stamper Hearts a Flutter LuminariaNext up is a luminaria made from the Bigz XL Fancy Favor bag in vellum.  It’s hard to see, but there’s a little flameless tea light inside with Tempting Turquoise shreddies.  Hang a group of these in the trees for a sunset reception, or use them to line a pathway or even the edge of a table!

Maui Stamper Hearts a Flutter cardThis simple geometric design was created with a man in mind… not too fluffy or fussy.  I’ll confess I was seriously tempted to try my hand at the ruffled, romantic look with this set but all of those linear designs pulled me towards a cleaner style instead.  I used my Simply Scored (most awesome scoring tool evah!) to create a simple linear border on this card.  By the way, no fussy measuring for the placement on these – your eyeball can do the job.  And did you spot that bit of Bakers’ twine?  I used a ittle Tempting Turquoise ink refill to dye the twine, but my initial effort was way too dark.  On an impulse I stuck it under the faucet for a second and that did the trick!

Thanks for stopping by, and click on the link below to see what the uber-talented (and might I add uber-busy!!) Robin Merriman has in store!

    • Thank you, Brenda. I am such a blue-and-green freak, and I worry sometimes that others weary of my focus on that combo. Glad you liked it!
