From The Heart Stamps Sketch #159 – Twist: GateFold Card

Hello friends!  Happy Monday!  My brain is still on vacation so I am late in posting my challenge!  ACK!!  I’m here with sketch #159 at From The Heart Stamps.  These are great challenges because you can use just the sketch, or if you’d like, add the twist. The only requirement is that you use a From The Heart image and the sketch.  The rest is up to you. The twist for this challenge is to use a Gate Fold Technique.


I used just the sketch this week.  My image is one of the sweet Faithful Friends images called, “Hold Tight Hugs” which I colored with Copic Markers.  My paper is Glitz Design called, “Felicity” and I used the MFT Flag dies as embellishments.  My sentiment is a Simon Says Stamp die which I layered and then coated with Pico Embellisher.


Sure hope you’ll join us for Sketch #159 at From The Heart Stamps this week.  Also, don’t forget to stop by and join the FTHS Facebook group.  Happy Monday!!


Cards in Envy Challenge: Heat Wave

Happy Monday!  Summer is in the air my friends and I don’t know about you, but it’s sure hot here in Virginia. In keeping with the theme, here at Cards in Envy  we are having a “heat wave” challenge!  As always, please make sure your card fits into a standard A2 card without any large lumps or bumps. The challenge will run through Sunday, July 31st.  Our design team will also be choosing their favorite cards to feature on the The Cards in Envy blog.

My card features a Nesto an adorable Mo Manning image.  I colored him up with my copic markers E000, E00, E11, E21, E04, E15, Y19, Y15, Y11, BG49, BG13, and BG11. To give a little interest, I die cut the MFT Stitched cloud edges die and stamped the Simon Says Stamp “Skater” sentiment.


Where ever you are this summer, I hope you are enjoying it and can take some time to enter our “Heat Wave” challenge at Cards in Envy.
