You’re Aces With Me!

Hi all!  Happy Friday!  I have a very clean and simple card today, featuring a fantastic Birdbrain image from From the Heart Stamps.  It breaks my heart that we lost Faith in July and I think of her every time I see or use one of her fabulous images.

You're Aces With Me

Out of Faith’s images, the Birdbrains were always my favorites.  I used the Birdbrain Card Sharks here and made it the focal point of the entire card panel.  {There are 11 sentiments to choose from in this set!}  I colored up my birds in a variety of grays — hoping this works for the current Color Throwdown challenge of red, black and white.  The only addition I made was some Diamond Glaze to their eyeballs (my Glossy Accents EXPLODED everywhere — OY what a mess!).

FTHS May Blog Hop – CASEd ‘Tini

Hi all!  Lately, it seems I’m always apologizing for the long absences.  At the end of 2016, I mentioned how it was a big year for my family and that we had moved.  Well, we have moved again!  This time from the apartment (2 bedrooms, 2 adults, 2 children {boy & girl} entering tween years in the same room and a big dog who developed separation anxiety — can you say “the novelty has worn off?”) into our new home.  Since we always do things a little crazy, we closed at 4 PM on a Wednesday, had to be out of the apartment by noon on Friday and only my husband was off on Friday!  It was a little crazy, to say the least!  But, it’s a great house with a fantastic piece of property.  We are slowly getting settled and a new Pink Room is underway.  However, with all of the moving, 99% of my crafting supplies are still in boxes.  So things will likely still be quiet for a while around here.  

************************************************************************************Welcome to our From the Heart Stamps blog hop. We have a “CASE it” theme this month. Each team member will be showcasing a card CASE-D (copy and share everything) from another teammate.

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.

We are also having a link up contest with this hop. We invite you to pick one of the FTHS DT members and “CASE” one of their cards and add it to linky collection, by Sunday May 7th. Everyone who enters will be entered into a random drawing. One lucky winner will win three images of choice 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.

I am CASEing Doni and all of her fabulousness.  Doni’s coloring is awesome and I love how her style varies from CAS to lots of layers.  Doni uses lots of Birdbrain images and I opted to go with the Martini Chicks, which she used in the following two cards.

Tini Landscape

Given that most of my supplies are still packed, I was fortunate to have the Chicks colored up already.  {Their martini glasses are bone dry as well because my Glossy Accents are not yet found!} I was going to create a little mini-martini gift set, but I don’t like martinis.  Mike & Ike’s and Chewy Lemonheads to the rescue!  I used the One Martini… sentiment to create the progression — one little martini growing gradually to the third, which means the floor!

Tini Vertical

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

Thanks for hopping with us today. The hop will end on Sunday May 7th at 6 am EST. Winners will be posted on the From the Heart Stamps Blog on Wednesday May 9th.

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!

FTHS167 Beer Mug

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.

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.

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.
