I hope you are having a wonderful day! I am very excited to share this weeks card post as Guest Designer for From the Heart Stamps! Woohoo!
I am having a great time playing along with their talented design team each week!
Not only does From the Heart Stamps have some incredibly adorable images, but each week at From the Heart Stamps Blog a sketch challenge is held. It is called a Sketch Challenge with a tWiSt: a sketch is provided, but so is an additional requirement. Don't worry.....no need to feel overwhelmed with rules and restrictions! You can choose to use the sketch, OR you can create using the tWiSt....or you can do BOTH! :)
Here is this weeks sketch:
Sketch with a tWiSt #072
tWiSt: Warm Colors: Warm Reds, Oranges, Yellows
Here's a really cool thing about this sketch challenges: EVERYONE IS A WINNER! You can earn a $1 discount code toward any digi image in their store. No, not by being a random winner, but just by entering! And even better, yet.......you can use multiple codes toward purchases in their store! So, if you play three weeks in a row, you can buy a new digi for only $ .50! Play four times in a row, and "buy" a new digi with all four of your codes without spending a dime out of your own pocket!
See......I told you that everyone is a winner there! :)
Here's another cool thing about From the Heart Stamps.......they also run a month-long challenge in addition to their weekly sketch challenges. "Why is that cool?" you ask??? Because if you use the monthly image, you will be emailed next months image
Okay....now that I've explained my excitement about this great digi-stamp company, let's move on to my card for this week. Aren't all the circle layers on this sketch the coolest??This week I am using the sketch AND the tWiSt. :)
I chose to play with the super chic French Mustache Birdbrain image on my card. I colored my image digitally, with PSE. I cut it out, and embossed it, using a Spellbinders Classic Circles die. I had these great papers from old Sizzix Sizzlets pads in my stash, and I grabbed several to layer my circles.
Instead of a banner or border, I chose some black rhinestones and a die-cut sentiment, which I cut with my Silhouette Portrait machine.
I am digging this little chick.....he's way too cute, I think!
I hope you enjoy your day! I appreciate you stopping by, and would love it if you'd leave a comment!
I hope you'll join us for the sketch challenge!
Thanks for stopping!
