I am not a fan of the heat, but I like be able to enjoy the outdoors and pool/water fun with my grandkids. And that's what I really liked about this image. I imagine it as me with a drink in my hand, floating in the pool or down a lazy river...LOL.
 
I made this card on a retreat a few weeks back w/my girlfriends. We had a lot of fun and TONS of laughs. I won 3 door prizes and 1 of them was a 1/2 price retreat, so I can't wait to go back again!!

FTHS May Blog Hop

 Welcome to our May 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.
 
If you have arrived from Lyn, 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 - I got to "CASE" Ruth. I enjoy her cards as I love her coloring and her awesome CAS designs. Her coloring really brings such life to Faith's images. There were so many choices - but I think this one just 'grabbed' me. And very fitting, especially being that it's spring now :)

 



Paper: Teresa Collins Fabrications
Color Medium: Copics
Other Supplies: Frantic Stamper Deckled Squares die, Michaels Pearls
 
Now head over to Ruth and see what she has created! 

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!

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.

Thanks for hopping with us today.

Mid-Week Inspiration @ FTHS

Hi everyone!!!
 
Welcome to the Mid-Week Inspiration post @ FTHS :)
 
Faith is recovering from her treatment so we are using another recycled older one this week and are revisiting Sketch No. # 2.  Since there was no tWiSt at the beginning, there is also no tWiSt this week.

Here is my take on the sketch!

 
 
Image: Surprised Birdbrain
Paper: Heidi Swap Wanderlust
Coloring Medium: Copics
Other Supplies: My Favorite Things Stitched Scallop edge die
Sketch: Recycled Sketch 2

 
I went very CAS so that the image was the 'star'.  Hope you have time to join us this week. We would love to see your creations!

  • rotate it

Mid Week Inspiration @ FTHS

Hi everyone!!!
 
Welcome to the Mid-Week Inspiration post @ FTHS :)
 
Faith is our specialist in graphics and she brings the sketches into the form you see every week. Since she is still recovering from her treatment, there are currently no new sketches.
For this reason, we have recycle old ones and our dear Lyn had the great idea to start again at Sketch No. # 1. It was the first sketch from  2013 (!).  Since there was no tWiSt at the beginning, there is also no tWiSt this week. So just the sketch – we hope you have fun with it anyway !
 
Here's my take!!


Recycled Sketch #1




Image: Harriet PigWit Mud Bath
Paper: ki Metro Garden, Vellum
Coloring Medium: Copics
Other Supplies: Spellbinders Celebrations Pierced Circle dies, Memory Box Stitched Rectangle dies, Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze Icicle
Sketch: Recycle #1


Remember - Use any size or shape, feel free to
  • rotate it
  • flip it
  • and embellish as you like
but 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.”
 
Hope you can join us!!

I hope you like it!

FTHS Mid-Week Inspiration

Welcome to my 2nd post of the day!
 
Are you ready for some inspiration?
 
I always find sympathy cards a difficult thing to do. Because they are for such a somber moment in time. And when I seen this weeks twist of "Easy does it" - I was trying to think of how to 'play on it'. For me personally, I think sympathy cards should be simply stated, not over the top with lots and lots of embellishments. And sometimes - sentiments can be just as powerful as an image.
 
With Faith's image Time to Bloom - it includes three images: main image of flowers and pocket watch, flower corner accent image, and butterfly, and six bonus sentiments. There are numerous ways this can be used. And to me - just the statement simply stated and a couple of butterflies I thought would be fitting for a sympathy card.
 
I hope you like it. As I cut the images of the butterflies out - I wanted to give them antennas. I thought the twine would make them look 'realistic'. And it's hard to see in the pic - but each of the butterflies has just a light coating of sheer sparkle over the top.

Paper: My Minds Eye Follow Your Heart by Rhonna Farrer

March Blog Hop @ FTHS

Welcome to our From the Heart Stamps March 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 Lyn, 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. 

Not sure about you, but I sure am ready for spring! And when I think of spring, I think of flowers like tulips and daffodils, and buds on the trees. New life in everything and everywhere you look.
 
So here is my project - I hope you like it  :)
 
Image: Every Flower
Paper: Every Flower DDP, blue cardstock
Color medium: Copics
Other Supplies: Jolee's Boutique Dimensional Stickers (Bee), Memory Box Stitched Rectangle Layers Dies, Tim Holtz Distress Crayons & Watercolor cardstock, Michaels paper roses, Doodle Designs Bakers Twine, Glossy Accents, Gelly Roll Clear Star pen
 
When I was looking for some paper to 'back' my image, I really didn't like the solid colors I was coming across. And I remember on a recent trip to the craft store I had bought some Distress crayons and watercolor cardstock. I though I would play around and make a 'marble effect" background. I think it turned out :) And I really like Faith's Every Flower DDP. I think is really makes the image 'pop'
 
Now head over to Ruth, 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.

Thank you to everyone who played along with us last week!  We at FTHS enjoyed visiting your blogs and seeing your wonderful creations!
 
 Here in the Midwest, we have had such a swing of weather this last week or so. Couple of days of normal temps, then unseasonable highs, rain and then back to snow. I wanted to make a bright & cheery card! One that made me think of spring :) I also used the current sketch challenge that is going on right now.

I hope you like it!

FTHS Mid-Week Inspiration

Hi there!!
 
Back for another Mid-Week Inspiration post at From The Heart Stamps:)
 
Here in the Midwest we are having some unusually warm weather for this time of the year. Highs in the upper 50's to 60's in some spots. When our average high is normally only about 29! In between all of our bathroom remodel, etc, - I did manage to get out an enjoy some of the great weather this past weekend w/my grandkids!!
 
Here is my inspiration for you this week! I have had the Nerd Girl for a little bit now, but have never used it. And when looking for some DP - I came across this one and thought it worked out perfectly w/the image! And as you can see as well, I did follow the current sketch challenge somewhat.
 I hope you like it :)
