So, if you have arrived from our lovely Doni you are on the right track, if not why don´t you start on the {From the Heart Stamps} blog, so you don´t miss anything !

I usually do not send Easter cards but the “Easter Egg Birdbrains” are just too funny to not use them. This card goes out to my nephews. Inside i´ve placed the matching sentiment from the Set “Hope your Easter is eggcellent”.

March is for me a month in which the flowers begin to bloom. Mostly only tulips, daffodils, hyacinths etc. but flowers ! Therefore i went with “Every Flower”I think I’ve never used it – so it was a good opportunity. And after a long time I wanted to color again on KRAFT with pencils – checkmark – done !

This month Faith comes up with “Hogs and Kisses PigWit” – a perfect image to send some love. Most of you use this Image for Valentine Cards but this day is not celebrated in Germany as in the US and this specially packaged chocolate does not exist in Germany. Many would not know what Hamlet holds in his hand. That’s why I made a birthday card.

fths-bee-birdbrain

I´ve used “Bee Happy Birdbrain” for my card and i found a great matching saying in my other stamp sets. This image is an older FREEBIE and if you do not already have it, grab it in the Store.  When I finished the card, I did not pay attention and a mistake happened. Do you find out what it is ? Among all the correct answers, I will draw a person who receives this card. Who does not like to get happy mail ?

From the Heart Stamps – August Blog Hop

Hello and Welcome to our {From the Heart Stamps} August Blog Hop !

This month we have a “Use your Stash” theme.

Ok, if you have arrived from our lovely Doni you are on the right track, if not why don´t you start on the {From the Heart Stamps} blog, so you don´t miss anything !

FTHS-Hope-Butterfly

My Stash Item on this Card are EYELETSDo you know these things yet ? I’m sure each of you  has it in stock and they are barely used, right ?  So, I picked them and I think they fit well with the Hope Butterfly. I fussy die cut the image and glue it on a wooden butterfly to get him a bit more dimenison. The German saying means “Lovely Greetings”.

However, I can still not properly deal with my Crop-A-Dile. Sometimes the Eyelets crush a bit. Maybe i use to much power ? I have no clue but i´m sure this is why i use them rarely.  I’d love to hear your experience with Eyelets !

But now head over to our very talented Jo Edwards . I wonder what kind of Stash Item she used!

One random commenter will be also selected on each blog to win an Image of choice from the FTHS Store. The more Blogs you visit and left some love, the higher are your chances of winning Images ! And one commenter on the FTHS blog has the chance to win a 15$ voucher to the Store. So, don´t miss to left a comment there too !!

Thanks for hopping with us this weekend ! The Hop will end on Sunday, August 7th at 6am EST. Winners will be posted on the {From the Heart Stamps} blog on Wednesday, August 10th.

From the Heart Stamps – June Blog Hop

Hello and Welcome to our {From the Heart Stamps} June Blog Hop !

This month we have a “Design your Image” theme. Each designer was allowed to virtually design their own image and Faith has brought to life. We know the wishes of the team, but we also see the finished images today for the first time. So it is a surprise for us too !!

Ok, if you have arrived from our lovely Doni you are on the right track, if not why don´t you start on the {From the Heart Stamps} blog, so you don´t miss anything !

FTHS-Summer-Medley-Blog-Hop

My request looked like this:  A “Summer Medley” like the Spring and Harvest Medley. Example for images: Palm trees, Beach, Crab, Flip Flops, Sun, cocktails,……. Example for Sayings: “Work less, play more, enjoy Life” (this is my favorite), “Every Summer has a story”, “Here comes the Sun”.

I am totally impressed and am very excited what Faith did with my details:

Beach Medley

FtHS_Beach Medley Preview

I created my background using “Brusho´s”. I need more practice but for the first time, it is OK. I fussy die cut the “Beach Medley” and placed it over the rectangle. I thought the background looks a bit like an ocean. I have chosen my favorite saying, put it in a different order and printed on the card. LOVE it !

No head over to our very talented Jo Edwards . I wonder how her image has become !

Since all the Images are NEW on this Blog Hop, one random commenter will be selected on each blog win the featured image. So if you leave a comment on my blog you can win “BEACH MEDLEY”.

And the Dollar Question: If you could create your own image, what it will be or how would it look ? Tell us on the FTHS blog. Instead of the normally $ 15 coupon one very lucky hopper will be able to work with Faith to create an idea for a specially made image. Isn´t that a cool win ?

Thanks for hopping with us this weekend ! The Hop will end on Sunday, June 12th at 6am EST. Winners will be posted on the {From the Heart Stamps} blog on Wednesday, June 15th.
