FTHS September Blog Hop

Hi all!   Welcome to our From the Heart Stamps blog hop. We have a Random Image Theme this month. Our designers are each showing a project created with an image that was randomly assigned from the store.

If you have arrived from Brenda, 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.

Here is my project, using Great Pumpkin Birdbrains.

FTHS Welcome Fall Sept Hop

When I received my image, I was sweltering away with real feel temperatures of 105-110 degrees.  I was dreaming of fall and fall temperatures!  My time was limited so needed to do something quick and easy.  I printed my Birdbrains and cut them out with the Blueprints 13 frame.  I left my card stock in the frame, grabbed some Distress Ink and a blending tool and another printout of the image.  I fussy cut the second copy and used a piece of washi tape to secure it over the top.  I blended my sky and grass, then removed the mask and colored my image.  I then popped it out of the frame and loved the crispness of the border.  Finally, I cut one of the sentiments out using a Sentiment Strip die, popped it up on dimensionals and added some rhinestones.  Quick & easy!  (Really, I think I spent 15 minutes!)

Now head over to Doni and see what she has created.

Thanks for hopping with us today.  Hope to see you again soon!

  2. Sooo glad you explained how you got the lovely background done around your image. Thank you. I love your card and have had a similar summer of sweltering heat so I too was looking forward to fall. Your card is beautiful . Thanks for sharing and inspiring me.

  3. This turned out beautifully! I love the way you inked the background with the die in place! That did create a nice, crisp border! And I have always wondered how people inked around digis so perfectly. I’ll have to try using a second copy of the digi on top. With the print and cut feature on my Silhouette, I wouldn’t even need to do the fussy cutting!

  4. Cammy, I love that background! Brilliant! I’m not sure I could create a card that beautiful that quickly, ever. Maybe I should challenge myself??? I’m going to follow your blog so I can keep up with what’s going on for now. Hugs!
