Hi all! Welcome to our November From the Heart Stamps blog hop. We have a CAS and Over the Top theme this month. Our designers are showcasing lots of gorgeous projects.
As you hop along, please leave a comment on each blog. One random commenter will be selected on each blog to win an image of choice from the FTHS store.
If you have arrived from Calypso’s blog, you are in the right place. If not, why don’t you start on the From the Heart Stamps blog so you don’t miss anything.
First up is my CAS project, using the Blowing Kisses image.
To say that I made a CAS card would be an understatement here! I went über-CAS. I colored my sweet snowman with Copics and cut it out with Blueprints 13 from MFT
. The card base is Plum Pudding from PTI. Because I didn’t plan for a sentiment when I printed my image, I opted to use a stamped sentiment from a retired MFT ala mode stamp set. There is just a tiny touch of sparkle with some Stickles to his feet and arms. I love how this turned out and could see making these for holiday cards.
Next up is my over the top project, again using the Blowing Kisses
For my over the top card, I again went with a purple palette. For my layout, I used a sketch from Cheerful Sketches Challenge Blog
. The papers are from an old pack of Recollections Bright & Basics pad. My snowman is again colored with Copics and cut out with a Pierced Rectangle STAX die (MFT). The sentiment is from this sweet set. After printing it, I cut it out with a Pierced Fishtail Flags STAX (MFT) and then flipped the die around and cut again to give the double flag effect. Before layering on my image, I added in some pretty lilac colored ribbon that has just the tiniest bit of sparkle along the edge. I popped up my image panel with dimensionals and then popped up the sentiment panel as well. I tied a bow, added some Stickles and two sequin trios.
