Hearts and Flowers

Welcome to another exciting week of Challenges at the Mod Squad!  I am Barbara Campbell and your host for this week with some exciting news!  Stay tuned! 

Hearts and Flowers

The challenge this week... is to make a project using hearts and/or flowers or both on it.  You may want to continue with a Valentine theme... or spring... or any thing that comes to mind. Let's see what you come up with.   I am always so excited to see what you do and be inspired.  We have two sponsors this week.

This Weeks 1st Sponsor is Gina K Designs

A PRIZE PACK of Gina K goodies. You can see an example of prizes in the GKD Prize Pack link.

My sample for you

My card is a Shaker card.  I used two newer stamp sets and one older set from GKD, called Triple Play and Wild Blossoms, and Stately Flowers 6  
I used Stately Flowers 6 for the sentiment on Vellum

There are so many ways that you can design a card with these stamp sets.
Card stock is GKD, white in heavy and light weight, and Passionate Pink
Inks are GKD in Passionate Pink and Black Onyx
Embossing folder in Swiss Dots and flowers and sequins from my stash. All of Gina's papers and inks match so well.

Here is the surprise! We have a NEW second Sponsor this week  Please welcome Drum roll!!!!!!!!

Newton's Nook Designs 


Newton's Nook Designs is a small company comprised of a husband and wife team - Jen (artist and crafter) and Jeff (finance and business). Their stamp designs are created from Jen's hand-drawn sketches and are perfect for all your paper crafts! Many of the designs are kitties based on their own sweet orange kitty named Newton. They hope that their whimsical stamp designs will make you smile!

  6. Hi ladies. Collection has closed? Is this possibly an error?

  7. How come it closed so soon? I was going to upload my card. I am hoping there is a mistake somehow. I had planned to make another one for the challenge as well.

  8. Sorry for the inconvenice, as I have very fat fingers. The linky is fixed and you should be able to link up now. Lol

  10. Still getting an error message when I try to link my card. :-(

    1. Liz, I went and unchecked that a link back to our site had to be there. Inlinkz is wonky with it sometimes. It should work now. BUT there were 11 entries and I overrode and accepted the so is probably posted now.

    2. Thank you. It's there now. x

    My URL:

    1. Sorry for the problems. I was able to fix them and your card was added.

  14. I have tried to put three cards up,numbers 56, 70 and 71. The pictures are there but the titles are gray and every card's picture they are all in blue. I have been uploading to stamptv and then making my card full size and then copying the URL. then going to the Mod Squad hearts and Flowers blog. Do I have to click the blue "I am a follower" every time? Any how,then I go to the bottom of page to click on inlink.

  18. It is correctly said that flowers speak the language of love. No matter what is the occasion is flowers are always considered as the best way for expressing your emotions. Having a new addition in the family is certainly considered as an event to celebrate by each and every member of the family. Flori cluj
