From the Heart Stamps August Blog Hop – Use Your Own Stash

Welcome to our From the Heart Stamps blog hop. We have a “Use Your Stash” Theme this month. Our FTHS designers are showcasing lots of gorgeous projects.

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. And one lucky commentator on the FTHS blog has the chance to win a $ 15 voucher.

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 Hang Loose, perfect for a summer card.  I broke out some oldies but goodies from my stash including a spellbinders “Spritely Sprockets Die, some Amy Tangerine paper from 2012 called, “Sketchbook”, Liquitex inks, Distress Inks, Art Anthology Dimensional Paint, and of course, my favorite Copic Markers.  This was a super fun challenge to use stash that you haven’t touched in a while.  Do some shopping in your own craft room to see what you can find!

August Blog Hop
Now head over to Kelly Schelske and see what she has created.

Thanks for hopping with us today. The hop will end on Sunday Aug 7th at 6 am EST. Winners will be posted on the From the Heart Stamps Blog on Wednesday Aug 10th.”
