From the Heart Images

I have only just discovered the From The Heart Shop and Blog

but I think they will be places I will visit often now!

I have two makes to show you using From the Heart digis...

The first is an addition to my Christmas card collection using Snowman and Cocoa
coloured with Spectrum Noir markers and glitter.

This is based on the From the Heart Sketch #141

The papers I have used are from DDD That's Snow Biz and I added some snowflake confetti.

The twist is to make this card into an easel so...using another sentiment from the set to make the stand:

Unfortunately I was just too late the enter this in the challenge...

The second card I have made features Digging Dog which is the stamp set connected to the

Using word I combined two of the images and a sentiment - printed the result out and coloured it with Spectrum Noir markers. I trimmed it and edged the rectangle with 'brushed corduroy' distress ink.
I then turned to my pink and brown scraps - and found a largish piece to mat the rectangular card base. I used Hobbycrafts A6 Paws background stamp and the 'brushed corduroy' to add smudgy muddy paw prints and a brown edge to this layer!
I found smaller snippets to make the banners.
 Finally I added three SU corduroy and silver buttons and a silver trowell.

Happy Crafting!

  2. Love that snowman, Susan, and the sentiment is perfect! The dog reminds me of my daughter's dog. LOL, he does love to dig!

  3. Love the addition of the spade in the doggie card.
    that snowman really makes you feel the cold of winter.
