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.


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.


FTHS141 Shake Your Flakes

Hi all!  Happy Monday!  We had beautiful weather yesterday that left the kiddos really itching for spring.  They had a quick scooter ride to the playground and back — with me trying to keep up behind them! LOL!

Today I have a card for the new I {heart} Sketches sketch.

FTHS141 Shake Your Flakes

I used another of the adorable snowmen from the Dancing Snowman set.  {This is a great value — there are 3 snowmen and four sentiments in this set.  All for $1.75!} I love the retro boom box!  It was a simple coloring — I colored up that scarf in green and then pulled out some fun green patterned papers to create a monochromatic card.

FTHS Blog Hop – A Friendly Little Hello


Happy Friday all!  Welcome to the February Blog Hop for From the Heart Stamps!  This month we are featuring the über-adorable snowmen/women/girls/boys/teens that Faith has been drawing.  You’ll see lots of gorgeous snowy projects along the way!

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 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.

For my card today, I used the sweet Hello Snowman.

Isn’t she cute?  I merged this with some fun Doodlebug Valentine paper, which I thought complimented her hat well.  I kept it all in the pink family!  That sweet sentiment is included in the set, along with some great knitted hearts.  To finish it off, I added in some sequins and some Stickles on her hat.  My Stickles came out a bit more than I liked, but it worked out because those little pom-poms are almost 3D!

Now you should head over to Doni and see what she’s created.

Thanks for hopping along with us today.  The hop will end on Monday, February 8th at 6 AM.  Winners will be posted on the From the Heart Stamps Blog on Wednesday, February 10.

FTHS137 Hearts & Kisses

Hi all!  As you can see, I’ve made the jump from Blogger to WordPress.  I’m still trying to get everything sorted, but so far, so good.  {It also helps to have an IT person in the house!}  You can still use http://www.pinkroomtherapy.com to find me!

I’m here today with another From the Heart Stamps / I {heart} Sketches sketch.

FTHS 137 Hearts & Kisses

It’s safe to say Blowing Kisses is one of my favorite FTHS images!  I just love this sweet little snowgirl!  Our tWist this week is Hearts, Hearts and More Hearts.  I used the Fluttering Hearts Cover-Up plate from MFT to create the background in pale pink.  Then I added in a splash of red and the image, simply colored and a pair of pierced hearts, also popped up for a bit of dimension.  So very sweet!

Hope you get the time to play along with us this week!  Don’t forget, every participant receives a $1.00 credit to the FTHS store!

FTHS135 Bring It

Hi all!  Happy Monday!  I’m back today with another From the Heart Stamps/I {heart} Sketches sketch card.

We’ve had a very mild winter so far and only yesterday had more than a few flurries.  Now, we had less than 1 inch of snow and the town was saying it was a substantial snowfall.  Substantial?  Come on!

Bring it!  Mother Nature has not, to this point of January, brought the winter weather!  I am really loving the Birdbrains.  I printed the No Snow Birdbrain on PTI Stampers Select card stock and colored her in with Copics.  I cut her out with a Stitched Circle STAX die and then added a bunch of glittery {clean!} snow to her shovel and pile with Martha Stewart course glitter.  My card base is Dark Chocolate (PTI).  I pulled out some fun designer papers and cut the polka dotted green paper with Blueprints 13 and another patterned strip with a Fishtail Flags STAX.  Additionally, I cut a piece of Dark Chocolate with a Horizontal Stitched Strip die.  Finally, I cut the sentiment {I LOVE that font!} with the same Fishtail Flags STAX.  My Birdbrain panel is popped up on dimensionals, but I left it without further embellishments in order for the glitter snow to take the focus.  The tWist this week is to add some nature and I’m counting that snow as my nature! 🙂
Hope you get the chance to play along with us this week!  Make sure you stop by the From the Heart Stamps to see the other design team members’ takes on the sketch.

Flurry of Love

Hi all!  Some crafty friends and I participate in a very small card swap.  Our theme for December was a shaker card.  I’m finally getting mine in the mail tomorrow — It didn’t take a long time to complete them, but finding the time was another story!

I used my We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool to create the shaker pocket and a relatively flat shaker card.  I filled it with snowflake sequins, star sequins of various sizes and colors and some micro beads.  The pocket fits perfectly behind the large Rectangle Frame die from MFT {I used the stitched frame from Blueprints 13 as a guideline for creating the pocket.}  Each frame is cut from a piece of Basic Grey designer paper.  I die cut and stamped three of the sweet Birdie Brown Warmest Wishes on Neenah Solar White and colored them with Copics.  The sentiment is stamped on a Pierced Fishtail Flags STAX.  I did pop up Birdie Brown and added a pearl to her matching paper pieced scarf and some Stickles to her hat.   She’s very sweet!

FTHS #134 Warm Winter Wishes…

Hi all!  Happy Monday!  Hopefully, this will be a easier Monday than last Monday!  Has your post-holiday hangover warn off?  We finally took down our tree yesterday and boy, did it leave behind a slew of needles!  It was very warm here yesterday — rained a boat load, but very warm.  It’s been a very odd winter so far!

Today I have a card for the new I {heart} sketches challenge with From the Heart Stamps.  My card uses the current Stamp of the Month stamp  – Cozy Kittens – and it is an adorable one! If you aren’t familiar with the SOTM, check it out here for details!

Aren’t they adorable?  Now, I will admit my animal coloring skills are not very honed and this was a struggle for me.  I think I eeked it out and they work.  I added my sentiment prior to printing and when I was done coloring, I cut it out with a Stitched Circle STAX die.  The tWist this week is to add dots and stripes.  I found some fun and cute Kaisercraft papers in my stash to use with the tWist and matched them up with Melon Mambo card stock.  For the three strips, I used pink and green twine to complete that panel.  
Hope you find the time to play along with us this week!
