FTHS #167 Birthday Brew

Hi all!  I have a super CAS, masculine birthday card today.  It follows the latest I {heart} Sketches with a tWist and definitely follows the tWist!

The tWist is Easy Does It and I definitely did it easy or clean and simple.  I colored my Birthday Brew with a combination of Copics and Zigs.  This was my second attempt at coloring this image — my first attempt ended badly when my silver Wink of Stella vomited all over the image.  HMPH!  So I colored it up again and cut it out with a Pierced Rectangle STAX die.  I opted to keep it very CAS to facilitate mailing.

How’ve you bean?

Hi all!  I’m going to keep this brief!  Busy, busy around here!

FTHS How've you bean

I am not a huge jelly bean fan, but who couldn’t resist these birdbrains?!  I colored them up with a fun spring color theme and cut it out with a Pierced Rectangle STAX die.  It’s matted on a soft yellow pierced rectangle.  Because I’ve been in a CAS mode, I just added some clear Wink of Stella to the jelly beans and jar.  Finally, I popped the sentiment up.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Hope to see you again soon!

FTHS I’ll Be There For You

Hi all!  I’m back again this week with a card featuring the current sketch challenge at From the Heart Stamps.

FTHS165 There For You

I used the Rainy Day Birdbrains and went with a fun green & blue color combo.  I colored them up with Copics and cut them out with a Stitched Circle STAX die.  I wanted to keep this simple, so I only added Glossy Accents to the rain drops and their eyes.  The paper is from Kaisercraft Chapter One and it is on a base of Smokey Shadow from PTI.  Inside I added a panel of Ocean Tides, also from PTI.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Hope to see you again soon!

FTHS March Blog Hop

Hi all!  Welcome to our From the Heart Stamps blog hop. We have a Spring Theme this month. Our designers are each showing a project created with this theme.

If you have arrived from Calypso, 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 Apple Blossom Birds.

fths-march-apple-blossom

I love these sweet little birds.  I used my Zig Clear Color Markers to color them — this was the first time I used them on regular cardstock.  I’d rather stick with watercolor!  Anyway, I colored up the Apple Blossom Birds and cut them out with a Stitched Rectangle Frame die.  I cut another Stitched Rectangle Frame from Calypso Coral.  Finally, I added in some sequins and Wink of Stella on the birds and flowers.  The sentiment is from MFT’s Adorable Elephants.

Now head over to Doni and see what she has created. As you hop along, leave a comment on each blog. We will select a random winner from the comments on each blog and on the FTHS blog to win one image of your choice.

Our hop will end on Sunday March 12th 2017 at 6 am, and the winners will be posted on Wednesday March 15th.

Thanks for hopping with us today.

FTHS #164 Wish Big!

Hi all!  Happy last Monday of February!  I have a really CAS card for the new From the Heart I {heart} Sketches with a tWist challenge.

fths164-wish-big

When I saw the tWist for this challenge, I knew I wanted to do a water color background and feature a sentiment as the focal point.  I used my Zig Clear Color markers to create the watercolor background.  I then picked the Wish Big! sentiment from the Birthday Burger Birdbrain stamp set.  This allowed for a very CAS and very quick card.  Of course, I switched the oval to a rectangle.  To embellish it, I added some Nuvo drops in Caribbean Ocean.  {I held off for a LONG time before buying any Nuvo drops.  This is the only color I have.  I held off because I knew I would want all the colors.  The bottles are so pretty, I’d just like to display them. }

Hogs & Kisses

Hi all!  I’m here today with a fun, non-traditional Valentine’s card, featuring the Stamp of the Month Hogs & Kisses PigWit from From the Heart Stamps.

non-red-white-pigwit-valentine

I know I’m late for Valentine’s Day (and last week’s sketch!), but I love that this isn’t the traditional red or pink.  I colored up PigWit and cut him out with a Stitched Circle STAX die.  I then cut some Memory Box paper with a Stitched Strip die, a piece of light blue with Blueprints 13 and embossed the blue with the Polka Dot embossing folder.  All of this is on a kraft card base.  To finish it off, I added some polka dots to his bowtie and some Wink of Stella on the kiss.

Pop on over to the From the Heart Stamps blog to see what my teammates have come up with.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Hope to see you again soon!

FTHS#162 – Snow NO!

Hi all!  I’m back with a new card for the latest From the Heart sketch.  I’m dedicating this to my friends on the East Coast, who got a bit of snow last week.

fths162-shovel-no

I know many people are tired of winter by this point, but usually refrain from really being done until March.  We have maxed out on our snow days so I’m hoping for no additional snow days between now and then.   I colored up my No Snow Birdbrain, using Copics.  I opted for a clean and simple background.  The strips are from an old DCWV pad of adhesive papers.   Added in some stickles for the snow and a few 3D clear snowflakes to finish it off.

Hope you’ll play along with us this week!  Hop over to the From the Heart Stamps blog to get all the details and link up your project.
