DT Day: Lindsay

Hi everyone! 
Lindsay with you today, to share a fall card with you.  It's just now cooling off here in Northeastern Ohio, after a few days of hot and humid weather.  That had me thinking about fall, and the cool, crisp air it brings.  I love when the leaves turn, and their color is everywhere!  In that frame of mind, I created this, using fun products from mostly Paper Smooches, and a Lawn Fawn stamp set.  

I started by die cutting the fun Large Leaves Dies, and inking them with Distress Inks.  I set those aside as I worked on my card base.  Taking the Interlocking Backgrounds set from Lawn Fawn, I gold heat embossed the funky chevron strip onto the front of a white note card.  I then die cut the words "you" and "are" from the Kudos Word Die set, using black cardstock, and adhered them to the card, adding the "too kind" from Chit Chat last.
Lastly, I adhered my leaves in a haphazard way, covered them with Wink of Stella glitter, and added glossy accents to my die cut words. I hope you were inspired to break out the die cuts, and inks, and try something fun on your latest projects.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

DT Day: Tracy

Hi there IHP fans! It's Tracy here with a simple and fun card for you. I think these would be easy to reproduce for a party or for thank you's- that's if you don't mind die-cutting the window. I'm playing along in a fun new-to-me-challenge I found called One-Layer Simplicity. Our guest DT Ardyth is this month's host! 

I used my square nestabilities to cut the window in the center. Stamped my fun sentiment from Winnie &Walter in the window. Then on the front of the card, I doodled a little frame around it. And finished everything off with a button and some twine of course! One Layer Hello Recipe Cardstock: MFT sweet tooth Stamps: Winnie & Walter The Big, the Bold, and the Happy Ink: Hero Arts Orange Soda Accessories: square nestabilities; Copic Multiliner .3 black; aqua button; Hemptique yellow twine

DT Day: Ardyth

I love this colorful card (and great use of background stamp) from our guest Ardyth.  Here's her post:


Here's my latest Guest DT creation for i {heart} papers. I had a lot of fun with some colours I don't use very often and a couple of stamp sets that, even though they come from different companies, work really well together.

This fun, bubbly background that I created carries on UNDER (CASology 111) the white popped-up circular panel. And UNDER the card (if it's lying down on the table) is a surprise - I stamped the background on the back too! No reason for the party to stop at the border of the front of the card!


Supplies:
Avery Elle: Brushed
Winnie & Walter: Big Bang Confetti
Memento Ink: Tuxedo BlackDandelion, Lilac Posies
Hero Arts Ink: Pale Tomato
LawnFawn: Circle dies
Dimensional dots
White Cardstock

DT Day: Vera

Hi everyone. Vera here. Today, I have a flowery card to share with you. I used to find working with flower stamps challenging. Until I saw Wplus9 Fresh Cut Floral set. That set pretty much open the way to my love of flower sets. So, it's no surprise that when they came out with Fresh Cut Containers, I have to add this set to my stash. And, I made this card:

For the focal point of my card I used Wplus9 Fresh Cut Containers with it's matching dies, mixing with sentiment from Wplus9 Strictly Sentiments 5. The pretty patterned paper is from Dear Lizzy Daydreamer 6x6 paper pad. And for a touch of festivity I added a few spotlight/disco gold sequins.

Hope you enjoy today's card. I plan to play with this gorgeous set a lot! Thank you so much for swinging by here. May your Thursday be a great one.

Welcome Guest DT, Vicki Dutcher


Happy Labor Day, US friends!  Today we welcome our newest guest designer, Vicki Dutcher.

Here's her first project for us and what she has to say about herself.  Pop over to her blog and give her a warm IHP welcome!  And have a great day today!

Hi!  My name is Vicki Dutcher --  A little bit about me, I started stamping in 1996 for something to do while my son took his naps.  Once my neighbor took me to a Stampin Up party I was hooked.  Fast forward 5 years later when I found SCS and I became a serious addicted stamper.  I currently design for a few companies, along with being on a lot of challenge blog teams.  I probably average 20+ cards a week with my blog being aptly named, All I Do Is Stamp..  I love this hobby and the people I have met through it.  My husband and I live in hot, hot, hot Arizona and we love it here.  You can't beat 350 days of sunshine. 

I would like to thank Tracy and Kate for giving  me the opportunity to Guest Designer for I {heart} papers for September & October.  I am looking forward to designing with the array of products the store offers.  Check out my blog, All I Do Is Stamp



I was thrilled to use this fun image from Hero Arts, Just Sayin Hi, along with another fun product, Hello from Echo Park.  I layered my Hello x3 for the added depth.

A few basic supplies I also used:
Memento Ink; Tangelo, Bamboo Leaves, Dandelion, from  

I'll be popping in throughout the next couple of months using even more fun supplies from

i {heart} papers to make [what I hope] are cards that inspire you!

DT Day: Lori

Hi, IHP fans!  It's Lori here today with a project using stamps from Winnie and Walter.  Winnie and Walter is a company that's new to IHP, so be sure to check them out if you haven't already done so.  I love their fabulous fonts and how you can mix and match stamps from different sets to come up with a sentiment for just about any and every occasion you can imagine!


I used stamps from the The Big, the Bold, and the Happy set to make this card.  I stamped the "hello friend" sentiment in teal pigment ink on an aqua circle.  The circle is layered over a plaid patterned panel and a mint green panel.  I ran a strip of solid pink cardstock across the card, just beneath the text.  I tucked a strip of white mini pom pom trim underneath the pink strip to add some texture to the card, then arranged a trio of pink enamel dots around the cardfront as an accent.  I think deciding on the placement of those tiny enamel dots was the part of the card that took the longest!
