FTHS December Blog Hop – Celebrating Birthdays

Hi all!  Welcome to our December From the Heart Stamps blog hop.  This month we have a birthday theme and 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’ve arrived here 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.
This month, we have a FUN game for you again!  Here are the details:
Guess the birthday month of each designer based on the card each DT member has created and clues they have given.  One random winner will be picked from those who answer correctly to win a $15 gift certificate to the From the Heart Stamps store!  There is an additional chance to win by making a birthday card and linking it up via InLinkz over at the FTHS blog!  You can find additional details HERE.  
Now, for my project, I used the Mixed Bouquet image.
I really love this bouquet {I love round vases!}  and it fits perfectly into my birthday month.  {Hint: My birthday always fell very close to the end of the school year.}  I colored my image with Copics, focusing on shades of pink.  I cut it out with a Stitched Circle STAX die, as well as the next step up in Bubblegum Pink (Gina K).  These are matched up with Echo Park Be Mine and Basic Gray (SU).  The layout is this week’s Tuesday Morning Sketch, which worked perfectly.  The sentiment is from the Mixed Bouquet stamp set and is cut out with a Pierced Fishtail Flags STAX, doubled up. {Speaking of doubling up, my zodiac sign is the Gemini.

Now you should head over to Doni’s blog to see what fabulousness she has created.

Thanks for hopping along with us today.  The hop will end on Monday, December 7th at 6 AM EST.  Winners will be announced on the From the Heart Stamps blog on Wednesday, December 9th.

  1. I love all the pinks and greys which I think is perfect for Valentine's Day. So I'm glad you let us know your birthday is close to the end of the school year (which all depends on what part of the states you live in)cause I would have guessed wrong! I love the design and the font used on the “happy birthday”. This card is beautiful and some lucky lady will treasure it!

  2. Hi Cammy! Your card is a beautiful decoration for your blog, the colors meld beautifully. I love the way the happy pink plays off the neutral grey. Beautiful birthday card!


  3. Lovely card! I love the pink and gray color combo and the image is so pretty! Love the striped background! Thank you for joining us this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches and using our sketch for your wonderful card!
