FTHS Stamp of the Month Reminder

Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day!!

We here at From The Heart Stamps loved reading all of the welcome back comments in your blog posts.  Faith and the rest of the design team have definitely felt the love!

This post today actually cover 2 things: SOTM and the current Sketch challenge #162.  This is the mid-month reminder for the SOTM which is absolutely perfect for Valentine's day. But, could be used for birthdays as well. This lil guy and his kisses are just too adorable!!


 
As you can see I followed the sketch, but not the twist.

Hi crafty friends!
 
It's Wednesday - time for another
 
This weeks challenge is:
 
Challenge # 316
Anything Goes

We all got to use images from Fred She Said Designs. I don't have to many male/boy images, so when I seen this one I had to have it. It comes with a blank sign, as well 4 other sayings. Which make it quite versatile.

I hope you like it!

I {heart} Sketches with a tWist #161

Hi everyone!!
 
 We are all so thankful for Faith’s continued recovery and your continued thoughts and prayers for her!  We are also so excited to be back with you all and appreciate your sticking with us!

 We are back with a new sketch challenge!   
 
Before we get to the new sketch challenge, we want to highlight a few prize changes:
A random winner will receive 2 free images of their choice.
 
There will be no $5 voucher for the winner and there will not be a $1.00 credit for participating at this time.
This may change in the future.  We want to start out slow and not overwhelm Faith.

As you can see, our sketches look a little different!  Faith has hand drawn the sketches and added in an additional color option.  For the challenge, you may opt for the sketch, the tWist {in this case Birthday Cake}, the color palette or any combination of the three.  Use any size or shape, feel free to rotate it, flip it and embellish as you like, but if you use the sketch it should be recognizable! As always, a From the Heart Stamps image is required.  Please check out the Challenge Rules under the tab “Challenges”  (These new changes will be updated shortly.)

Paper: Teresa Collins Fabrications
Coloring Medium: Copics
Other Supplies: Glossy Accents, Smooch Glitz Frost, Sequins
Sketch: Sketch 161


As you can see I went with the sketch, and the twist kind of with the cupcakes. It's a little hard to see, but I put Glossy Accents on the cherries and sparkles on the frosting of the cupcakes.
 
It's been fun getting back into the swing of things and we hope you can join us for our challenge!!
 
Thanks for stopping by today!
I would love to hear from you :)

Challenge #315

It's Wednesday crafty friends!
Time for another
 
This weeks challenge is:
 
Challenge # 315
Anything Goes

This week I got to use an image from Sparkle & Sprinkle!
When going thru the images, I just had to get this one. My family is into racing (if you don't already know). We watch NASCAR and my husband & son also race stock cars at our local track as well. So when I seen Rusty - I just had to get him :)

Hope you like it!

Paper:  DCWV Nana's Kids
Color Medium: Copics
Other Supplies: Memory Box Stitched Rectangle die, Pearl Pen Chrome Silver, Gloss Accents, Darice's Bakers twine, Stamps of Life Happy Banners stamp & die
 
I know I found the checkered flag "button" at Hobby Lobby. But for the life of me can't remember the name of the company. I  just snipped off the back to make it flush to be able to put on the card. I used Glossy accents on his goggles and the pearl pen on the wagon wheels.
 
Don't forget to stop by and visit with the rest of the DT. I am sure they would love to hear from you. And as always - stop by our wonderful sponsors as well this week!!
