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!!
 
Thanks for stopping by today!

I am blessed again to get to use another Bugaboo image!!
I couldn't resist this funny pup when I saw him! I have so many ideas on how to use him :) I thought it would be cute to make him like a bobble head. I love using those action wobbles. I cut just his head out and put it on a wobble and I have been playing with it since...LOL

Hope you like it!

April Blog Hop @ FTHS

It's time for our From the Heart Stamps April blog hop!!
 
We have a “I’m no Spring Chicken” theme this month. Our designers are each showing a project created with some sort of bird on their card.

We had temps here this past weekend in the Midwest of upper 50's to 60 degrees. Very spring like so I am ready for it!
 
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
 
 
Paper: Doodlebug Designs Hello Sunshine
Color Medium: Copics
Other Supplies: the Paper Studio Enamel dots, Spellbinders Celebrations Pierced Circles die, Spellbinders Lacey Circle die

As you can see I also used the new sketch this week, and a couple of the colors.
 
 
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 April 9th 2017 at 6 am, and the winners will be posted on Wednesday April 13th.
 
Thanks for hopping with us today.

FTHS Mid-Week Inspiration

Welcome crafty friends!
 
Time for this weeks inspiration at From The Heart Stamps!
 
I didn't get a chance to use this weeks Sketch challenge to create my card. I was a lil pressed for time and wanted to make a quick, CAS spring card.
 
I did used this month's SOTM image Lucky Lil Birdie. There are still a few days left to join us for this challenge.
 
If you joined the challenge in February, you should have received Lucky Lil Birdie via email. This challenge closes on the last day of the month, and a new image will be posted and emailed by the 3rd of next month. 
If you missed out, you can still play along with the challenge by purchasing the image.
Then you can enter the challenge and receive next month’s digi free. OR if you spend $10 in the From The Heart Stamps store this month, you can enter code Good-Luck to receive Lucky Lil Birdie as a FREE gift.

Hers is my card for this week!



Image: Lucky Lil Birdie
Paper: the Paper Studio Pink Lemonade
