From The Heart Stamps November Blog Hop!

Welcome to our From the Heart Stamps blog hop. This month we are bringing you two for the price of one!  The theme is “Clean & Simple and Over The Top.”  This means we are using the same image and making two cards.  One card will be “CAS” and the other “Over The Top.”

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.

If you have arrived from Kathy Curry’s website, 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 Clean & Simple version using “Mistletoe Birdbrains” colored with Copic Markers and embellished with a bit of holiday ribbon.  Can’t get much more Clean & Simple!

For my “over the top” version, I used the same “Mistletoe Birdbrains” image, which I colored with copics, but added falling snow using Lawn Fawn stamps in silver Hero Arts Pigment Ink.  The DCWV glitter paper is cut with a Memory Box die and popped up over my image.  For the snow, I added Stampendous “Shaved Ice” with Gel Medium and finished the card off with a string of light bulbs.  I found this a super fun challenge because I don’t often break out the embellishments and go to town.

Now head over to Kelly Schelske’s and see what she has created.

Thanks for hopping with us today. The hop will end on Monday November 9th at 6 am EST. Winners will be posted on the From the Heart Stamps Blog on Wednesday November 11th.

  3. Two adorable cards. I was tickled when I saw your CAS but even more so when I scrolled down. Adding the lights is a nice idea and one that I might have to CASE.
