From The Heart Stamps December Blog Hop-Birthdays!

Welcome to our From the Heart Stamps December blog hop. This month we are celebrating all things Birthday with our designers choosing “From The Heart” images that best reflect the month of our birth.  Isn’t that fun?  The hoppers will be guessing what month each designer is born based on the image chosen.  I’ll give you a hint on mine “Pigs love to eat candy.”

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.  On the blog, Faith is also hosting a challenge to add your birthday month card with a $10.00 gift certificate prize. This challenge will run through Jan 3, 2016.

If you have arrived from Kathy Curry, 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, using “Pumpkin Pitwit.”  I began cutting out the “Wonky Frame” die by My Favorite Things which I stamped using an Impression Obsessions scratch background in Hero Arts Shadow Ink.

I colored up my Pigwit with Copic Markers in Roo, RV11, and BV20.  For my pumpkins I used E15, YR18, YR15, Y35 and the leaves are G99, G94, G21 and YG03.  For my background I used W3, W1, W00 then added texture with 91% Alcohol and a terry cloth rag.

For the Balloons, I inked them up with Hero Arts Ombre Inks, then stamped multiple sized stars with Simon Says Stamp “Lots of Stars” and finished off with the sentiment and die set by Papertrey Ink.
