Weekly Design Team Inspiration

 Are you feeling the love this month?  That’s the theme of all the projects of the design team at From The Heart Stamps.  It’s time for some inspiration and I’m showcasing a card with a digital image called “Ali’s Paper Hearts”.  She’s having a good time cutting the hearts and her little doggie is helping.  Do you remember doing this in school or with your friends?  So much fun!  I also cut out paper dolls and all the clothes with my granddaughter when she was little.  Really great memories.



Get busy using any of the great images at From The Heart Stamps.  We would love to see your inspirations!

FTHS Sketch #53

Hi.  It’s Monday and time for another weekly sketch at From The Heart Stamps.  Here’s it is.

10 February Sketch053

It’s an easy one this time.  If you’ve never tried to make a card from a sketch before, this is a good time to try.  You can turn the sketch horizontal or even upside down.  It’s a lot of fun to experiment.  Here’s my card based on the sketch.


I started with the adorable Flower Pot Chick image.  How cute is he popping up among the flowers!  I used a soft color scheme and colored him to match my papers.  I printed the sentiment from Balancing Hearts Sentiments and punched it in an oval shape.  Then I topped it off with some thin ribbon.  Easy peasy.  EVERYONE who enters the sketch challenge will receive $1 to spend at FromTheHeartStamps. Use it as a discount, or save your dollars to earn a free stamp. The link will close on Sunday at 10PM CST.  Come along and play.  You have the whole week to have fun creating.

Design Team Inspiration

Hi.  I’m back today with another card featuring an image with the love theme.  It’s available at From The Heart Stamps and is called Happy Mail.


I decided to go with a classic color scheme.  The card is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and has a Very Vanilla cardstock base.  I layered a piece of Chocolate Chip on top.  My pattern paper is from My Mind’s Eye, their Lost and Found Madison Avenue collection.  I used the brown stripe paper and then cut long flag pennants from another paper in the collection.


The Happy Mailbox digital image was sized and printed on Very Vanilla paper.  I had a lot of fun coloring the image to match the papers.  After matting it with a piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock, I added some pretty blue pearls.  This would be a great thinking of you card anytime of year.


Be sure to come back tomorrow for our Designers Blog Hop.
