From the Heart Stamps February Blog Hop – Let it Snow!!

FtHS-blog-hop-feb

Welcome to our From the Heart Stamps February blog hop. It seems like forever since we did a hop – this is the first hop of the year and it is going to be SNOW MUCH FUN!!If you have arrived from KELLY’S BLOG, 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.

Today’s theme is Project 100 Snowmen. Our awesome FTHS artist and owner is taking a challenge of her own and that is to create 100 snowmen by March – she has created so many adorable snowmen already it was hard to chose one! I think you are going to love the fantastic inspiration the designers have for you so let’s get started!!

As always, one random winner will be picked from each blog to win an image of their choice from the FTHS store.

My card today uses Flurry – this is the newest digi in the FTHS store. I decided to make it a simple card and use one of my very favorite embossing folders to create a window type card – After I colored it, I didn’t think the plain green scarf and white background was enough color, so I added turquoise strips to the side of the mounted, embossed piece and then went back a colored in some turquoise polka dots on my scarf which I also outlined with a white gel pen. You can’t see it in the picture but the heart and snowflakes in my image got a good coat of Wink of Stella and are shimmery – Love!

Thinking of You – Butterfly

Today I created a quick, simple, sweet card using the Hope Butterflies and Blooms Awareness Set by From the Heart Stamps.

FTHS Hope Butterflies and Blooms Awareness Set

It has been cold and/or rainy for a while and I thought something bright and spring like may be fun… I printed this on watercolor paper and immediately embossed it, then I colored it with Zig Real Brush Pens I had a piece of smooshed paper on my desk left over from a previous project so I added it…and that is pretty much all there is to this one.

Have a great day whatever the whether where you are :)

I found a base that I created a while ago with Washi tape and an embossing folder. I had accidentally debossed it instead of embossing it and decided not to use it then, but I thought is could be fun for today’s recipe challenge at Bugaboo’s Birthday week.Friday BadgeI used:

  • 1 birdie – My image is Circle Sentiments – birdie told me
  • 2 layers – Martha Stewart Washi tape layer, And PTI Pure Poppy cardstock
  • 3 enamel dots – Doodlebug Design Sprinkles

Bugaboo bday birdie told me copyOK – I just need to play catch on Day 4 and I will have helped celebrate the entire Bugaboo Birthday week~ What a fun week it has been!

If I could swing on a star…

Badge for SidebarWOW!!! This has been a crazy week. I am not used to doing daily cards (2 some days) and as of tomorrow, I will have done more cards this week than I usually do in month. I am gonna need to sleep in on Saturday, that’s for sure!!

Did you ever decide you were going to color a scene and create a background and get to the end and think – I love it…now what? I don’t do scenes generally but the new Jr. Hatter Twinkle Scene kept calling to me. She is in a night sky, so it needs to be blue (and it needs to be blended grrrr) and while I am at it, why not add more stars (can you ever really have enough?) Then I had no idea how to finish the card. SOOOO I went simple and just mounted it. LMMS Jr Hatter Twinkle copyI added Wink if Stella to the moon and glossy accents to the stars. The end result makes me happy! I really want to frame her (haha)but, alas, she is a card…try her out for yourself – I can’t WAIT to see what you do with her!

Recipe:

  • Image: Jr. Hatter Twinkle Scene digis by Little Miss Muffet Stamps

Happy Birthday Bugaboo Day 5 (Humor)

Today is day five in the Bugaboo Stamp’s week long Birthday celebration. I know I skipped day 4, but I will catch it up :)

Today’s challenge is to make a humorous birthday card. Soooo I pulled out a Hambo sentiment called inflation (mo longer available) that I thought would be perfect with the new balloon giraffe image at Bugaboo. I love this image and I am excited that it fit it with one of my challenges!Bugaboo Bday Giraffe copy

The answer is inside the card…IMG_6002

So much FUN!!

Have a great day!
