From the Heart Stamps November Blog Hop!

Well, it’s the first Friday of the month which means that the design team at From the Heart Stamps are on a hop until Monday!  The theme for this month is CAS and Over the Top. Each designer had to pick an image that was to be used on 2 cards – 1 CAS and 1 OTT!  I find CAS really difficult to make myself as I always want to add ‘something’ to it although I do love the clean and simple look! The ‘Over the Top’ version needed to have more layers and embellishments etc.

As you hop along to see what each designer has created 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!

If you have arrived here from the lovely Jo, then you’re in the right place.  If not, why not start on the From the Heart Stamps blog so that you don’t miss any fab inspiration.

Here are my cards using Christmas Spirit Birdbrain!

Supplies I have used to make these cards are: Papermania – Capsule Collection Festive Spots and Stripes, Centura Pearl Card,  Sizzix Scallop Border Die, L’il Inker Small Bow Die, WRMK Corner Chomper, X Cut Snowflake Embossing Folder, Buttons, twine, Glossy Accents and Spectrum Noirs to colour.

Now head on over to the lovely Kathy’s blog to see what she has created.  The hop ends on Monday 9th November 6am EST so don’t forget to leave a comment on each designers blog to be in with a chance to win a fab image from the FTHS store!  Winners will be posted on the FTHS blog on Wednesday 11th November.

Thank you so much for stopping by today, enjoy the hop – Karen 🙂

  1. This is another favorite image of mine – but then again, most of them are… 🙂 I am really drawn to the CAS card because the embossing and the thin strips of paper really set off the image as the star of the card. Fabulous Hop Cards Karen!!

  2. FUN cards Karen. Great embellishments on the OTT and the CAS is so striking. Love the embossing and shimmer as well as the sequins. I never remember to pull those out and they are destined to forever remain a stash item – I will try to remember because it is simple but it adds sooo much!! thanks for the inspiration!

  3. Karen, both your cards are fabulously put together!! I love the simplicity of the CAS, embellished with minimal sequins and the subtleness of the embossed snowflake. Love the beautiful buttons and bow on your OTT card.
