Happy Monday! Spring has sprung here at Cards in Envy and we are beginning a new challenge highlighting “flowers or fantasy.” That leaves a pretty wide area of interpretation so enjoy!
As a quick reminder, please make sure your card fits into a standard A2 card without any large lumps or bumps. The challenge will run through Sunday, April 17th. The design team will be choosing their favorite cards to feature on the The Cards in Envy blog.
For my card I used the gorgeous new AlteNew set called Peony Bouquet stamped on the My Favorite Things Tranquil Textures paper. For the ink I used the AlteNew mini cubes in blue. I love these cubes with these multistep stamps as the colors are perfectly gradient. I finished off with the sentiment also by AlteNew and some sequins.
Can’t wait to see your flowers or fantasty entries!
Welcome to our From the Heart Stamps April blog hop. This month our theme is “Sweet Treats”. YUM! The optional twist is sequins so enjoy the sweet sparkly goodness the design team has to offer this month.
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.
For my project, my “sweet treat” features the yummy looking “Cupcake Lineup” digi that comes in a straight and a curved formation. I played with this a little and flipped the image to create an oval shape. That’s one of the really fun things about digi’s is ways to make them your own.
I colored these sweet cupcakes with my Copic Markers in R89, R85, R83, R81, W4, W2, & Wo, Y19, Y15, Y11, YR18, YR14 , E15, and the liners in E29, E25, E23, and E21. My design paper is Amy Tangerine’s “Rise & Shine collection and the Happy Birthday sentiment is from “Flurry” . The oval die is from My Favorite Things and I stamped Paper Smooches “Sugar Rush” sentiment on more of the Amy Tangerine paper.
Now head over to Kelly Schelske’s and see what she has created.
Thanks for hopping with us today. The hop will end on Sunday, April 10th at 6 am EST so you have a good while to get all your comments in for a chance to win free digi’s. Winners will be posted on the From the Heart Stamps Blog on Wednesday April 13th.
