Welcome to our From the Heart Stamps blog hop. We have a “Check it Out” theme this month – Use Check or Plaids. Our designers are showcasing lots of fun projects for your inspiration.

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.

My card today uses one of the new images in the shop. It’s called Candy Run – this little guy make me smile and this sentiment (comes with him) is soooo true – you agree?? It’s been a while, but this little guy inspired me to pull out some polymer clay and create a candy corn charm hahaha – it seriously makes me happy!
FTHS Candy Mouse1In order to meet today’s blog hop theme, I used the plaid builder stamp set from Papertrey ink and matched up the colors to my image. It was the first time I used it and I am excited to say that it really works great – I will definitely play with this again and again! I used distress inks and water color paper to give it a less crisp look (not sure why I did it, just decided that is what I wanted to do…)
