Negative Space!

Hi, this is Sue Bruch again, this time taking over the hosting duties from Tamytha.  Tamytha, a Florida resident is facing evacuation from her home as Irma makes landfall.  I am happy to be filling in and am hoping she and her family remain safe.

So, Negative Space...what does this mean?  For our purposes, it is the space remaining after die cutting, using an electronic cutter or a punch.  We are hoping you will take out your favorite cutting tool, papers and maybe stamps and inspire us with how you make a negative space a very positive thing! Just remember to use at least one Close to My Heart product.

Not sure how to start? For your inspiration, here are projects from the design team.

Color Challenge

As a new member of the Design Team here on the Heart 2 Heart Challenges blog, this is Sheila Bennett from Sheila's Stamping Stuff introducing a special color challenge.  You have through the end of the month to create and share your project using these six Close To My Heart colors:  Toffee, Pomegranate, Sorbet, Canary, Peacock, and Pebble.  A couple of these colors are brand new neutrals from the CTMH Basics color palette.  

To get you started, here is some inspiration from a few of our Design Team members.  It is always so interesting to see such varied interpretations for the different challenges posted here.  

So now it is your turn ~ ready, set create!  You have all month to participate in this and the upcoming September challenges.  Our August winners will be announced soon!  Thank you for joining us!
