{FTH} For the Birdbrain Blog Hop + Tutorial

Welcome to our From the Heart Stamps blog hop. Our theme this month is “For the Bird{brains}”. Our designers are showcasing lots of gorgeous projects.

If you have arrived from Angela's blog, you are in the right place, if not why don’t you start on the From the Heart Stamps blog, so you don’t miss anything.
Here is my project card: 

Supplies I used:
Medium: Copic Markers
Paper: American Crafts: Summer
Cardstock: PTI  and Copic Xpress
Other: MME Enamels
As you hop along, please leave a comment on each entry. One random commenter will be selected on each blog to win an image of choice from the FTHS store. Some Design Team members are also giving away the actual project they create for the hop, too. So, you may win an image and a card or project from some of the blogs! And additionally, one commenter on the From the Heart Stamps blog will be selected to win a $15 gift voucher to the store!
We are offering another really cool prize on the FTHS blog! Have you ever had a great idea for a Birdbrain image? Well, this is your chance! One lucky winner randomly selected from all the comments will be selected to work with Faith to design a Birdbrain image!
And, we would like to invite all of you to be a part of our hop this month, with the DT! There is an inlinkz on the bottom of the post here at FTHS and on each individual blog. Use one of the designer’s tutorials and your favorite Birdbrain image to create a project to play along. We can’t wait to see what you create! If you are interested in guest designing for FTHS over the next few months, simply add GDT to your entry. We are looking for six people to guest design for two month rotations over the next 6 months. Hope you will print off your favorite Birdbrain and play along!

Now head over to see: 


Thanks for hopping with us today. The hop will end on Sunday September 14th at 6am, EST. Winners will be posted on the From the Heart Stamps Blog on Wednesday September 17th.
