From The Heart Stamps – Design Team Inspiration

I am beyond thrilled to announce that From The Heart Stamps has chosen me as one of their fantastic Design Team Members formally beginning on October 1, 2015.  I have had the honor to be a guest designer for this fabulous team on two previous occasions and since then have wanted to join them for a full design team term.

Today, I have made a card featuring the September Stamp of The Month to share for the Wednesday Design Team Inspiration post. I encourage you to participate in the Stamp of the Month challenge as you will receive a free stamp the following month for your participation.

My card today is colored with Copic Markers and distressed with Antique Linen Distress Ink.  The image is cut out with a Spellbinders die and the paper pack is from the new fall collection called, “Fall Blessings” by Carta Bella.  My leaves are from the new Lawn Fawn dies and the Button dies are My Favorite Things.  The element at the top of the card with circles is from a Simon Says Stamp die.

To add some texture to the leaves I distressed and stamped them with the “Giving Thanks” stamp from Simon Says Stamp. I finished the buttons off with distressing and tied a bow with waxed linen and popped them up over the leaves.  Finally, the sentiment is also from From The Heart Stamps and inked with distress ink.

I look forward to seeing you over at From The Heart Stamps Community both on the blog and on Facebook.   If you’d like to play along in the SOTM challenge with this image and wish to purchase her she can be found here.
