October Blog Hop

Hi!
Welcome to the From the Heart Stamps Blog Hop.
This month there is a meet the Design Team theme.
I'm especially excited,
because this is the first full month that I've been a Design Team member!
We'll be showing you lots of great cards and projects and telling you a little bit about ourselves.
 
So, 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....
and additionally, we will have a game with prizes on the FTHS Blog!
 
If you have arrived here from Cammy's blog you are in the right place,
if not you can start on the From The Heart Stamps Blog, so
you don't miss anything.
 
Here is my project:
 
I made a card and a wine bottle tag combo
 using one of my favorite digi's the Birdbrain Wine stamp.
The Happy Birthday sentiment on the bottle tag is from
the Mouse Balloon stamp, which happens to be a FREE download!
How great is that?!
I love being able to size the image to whatever size I need.
One thing I've found helpful when printing an image that you
want to color with Copic Markers is to immediately
 heat seal your image with a heat gun .
 
In addition to Copics,
 I used a  wine bottle  tag die and a Celebrate word die, both from Papertrey Ink.
Now, to the get to know me better part. Here are a few facts about me:
How long have you been on the FTHS design team?
—Just joined! This is my very first blog hop ever!

 What is your favorite coloring technique?
 Coloring with copic markers, I’ve taken classes and earned the intermediate
and the Papercrafting Designer certifications from Copic.

 What is your favorite category of images in the FTHS store?
– I LOVE Birdbrain!

 What is a good tip for printing digital images?-
Heat seal right out of the printer with your heat gun.

 Something about me no team member knows.-
 I have a large super bright lime green leather desk chair in my craft room!
 
Now, head on over to Imke's blog and see what she has created.
 
Thanks for Hopping with us today,
the hop will end on Monday October 5th at 6am EST.
Winners will be posted on the From the Heart Stamps Blog
on Wednesday October 7th.
 
'till next time,
Doni
