Welcome to our 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.
commenter will be selected on each blog
to win an image of choice from
the FTHS store.
We are also having a link up contest with this hop. We invite you to
pick one of the FTHS DT members and “CASE” on 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!
I liked Imke's use of color blocking.
I used a different color pallet and turned her design to make a vertical card.
I used a rectangle instead of a circle for the focal point and
colored with Copic markers and added a die cut "cheers" from PapertreyInk.
I used the FTHS Birthday Brew which you can find HERE.
Now head over to Imke's blog and see what she has created.
Thanks for hopping with us today.
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.
both the image and the sentiment just seemed to fit perfectly.
I colored Birdbrain and his surf board and fussy cut them out.
The waves were hand drawn and the colored with Copics, however if I had it to do over again I think I would paper piece them from colored cardstock.
I made a shaker card focusing on only the pretty flowers and the little bee, of course!
and I used today's sketch #165 :
To do the front, I used a die to cut the circle then I made the petals to put
around the circle by tracing around a petal shape that I drew freehand
and cut them out of practice paper where I had been playing around with yellow watercolor splashes.
The sentiment was stamped using Versafine grey ink, cut into a banner shape
and attached on top of the flower.
Then to make the shaker part...place this front panel face down
so you're working on the back side
adhere acrylic( cut a little bigger) over the circle
add 3-M Scotch double sided foam tape(two layers high)
around the circle.
A tip I learned from K.Werner is to remove the covering from both sides of the tape and then it goes around the circle curve really easy.
Add some pretty sparkle thing to shake around inside this circle.
Then you also need to add 2 layers of tape in spots around the edge of the card .
I then cut a 5 1/2 inch by 4 1/4 inch card front from the sheet of paper
that has the colored image , checking to make sure the image shows through the window.
Attach this to the back of the card front and your done.
If I have totally confused you, just go to YouTube and search for Shaker Cards!
